Happy Father's Day

He doesn't like to be spoken of on the Internet but hey it's Father's Day.
It has been a busy weekend for Dad. Friday night he took Olivia to a Dad and Me party at The Children's Museum in Mashpee. It was supposed to have rockets, catapults and sling shots as well as a moon bounce, pizza party and Chad's ice cream. It sounded like she spent an hour in the Moon bounce but they had a great time and that was all I cared about.
Saturday he woke up early and took Ava to Grampa's house where they worked with a Back hoe and took out a bunch of stumps. Real boy work for our little tough girl. As our close friends know we have been working hard on controlling Ava's temper and being a good girl and she is doing excellent. Dad did not want to return her to the baby store without a receipt like usual.
Today I was awoken by the two of them right in my face "Mom-Wake up. It's Faddah's Day! You need to make the breakfast for Dad. He needs it in bed."
Where they got this idea I do not know. My husband is an old fashion guy. He eats his meals at the table. I can eat while driving, walking, at the table or on the couch-not him. How to break it to them that Dad isn't really interested in breakfast in bed was hard but eventually he rolled out of bed and ended up cooking his own breakfast. That was more like it. This man loves breakfast and I do not so I let him whip up his own eggs, it is easier that way.
I got a call a short time ago that he is headed to the Chinese Buffet with his girls and they will stop by with tea for me shortly. It is almost like Mother's Day too-I like that.
It was sort of like Father's Weekend with all the Dad activities that took place around here. It was quite nice.
