The Big J Celebrates his 1st Father’s Day. Sort of…
So today marked our 1st Father’s Day with Rei Baby. This was also the first time I have celebrated Father’s Day since 1994 and I guess I was pretty excited because I briefly considered waking The Big J and Rei Baby up at 12.01am for present time… Luckily sensibilities prevailed.
Things didn’t go quite as planned though with The Big J coming down with a 24 hour bug (well it’s dragging past the 24 hour mark now) so we didn’t go out for the fancy breakfast that we had planned. Nevertheless, the day has been a special day of celebrating for our little family unit, made even more special having The Big J’s Mum up from Brisbane (which is a 12 hour drive, but don’t worry she flew) for the weekend.
Whether it was my excitement or the lure of all-day, uncensored internet shopping, I may have gone slightly overboard with the gifts this year. But hey, you only celebrate your 1st Father’s Day once
