James experienced his first Father’s Day Sunday. Unfortunately, it wasn’t really any different than most Sundays. Jessica and I had given him his gift the previous Sunday, because my brain wasn’t working right and I thought the previous Sunday was Father’s Day. Then I discovered it wasn’t, so I thought we’d wait and give him his card on the actual Father’s Day. Well, Saturday, we had AC issues again and spent Saturday and Sunday night at our friend’s house, so we wouldn’t have to be in a hot house. Needless to say, I forgot to take the card and my camera with me when we went. Monday, James went back to our house to work from home while he waited for the AC guy. Fortunately, A+ Air Conditioning & Heating didn’t charge us, since the repair guy missed the clog when he took care of the same issue two weeks ago (he had only unclogged 2 of the 3 things that could get clogged).
James wasn’t ready to have a child until the day Jessica made her world debut. I think it was mainly because he was nervous about having such a small life depending on him. He was great with our nephews, but he was hesitant with his interactions with them until they got older. Now, he has no qualms about little babies and has interacted with our niece and the nephew younger than Jessica while they were small without hesitation. Jessica is truly lucky to have him as a father. He plays with her and loves on her. He feeds her dinner and works hard so she can have her Mommy stay home with her.
This card uses a digital image from Bird’s Cards. She has some really neat freebies. Because of how big I printed the image, I made the card rather large, 5 inches by 6.5 inches. Not a big deal, since I didn’t need an envelope.
