Time to celebrate all the father figures in your life
henever June rolls around, I can’t help but think of it as the month of dads. My husband and I were recently talking about how it could be possible that our older son, Sam, is 5. We have a hard time coping with the fact that he’ll be starting kindergarten in the fall. Neither of us can believe we’ve been a parent for more than five years. Some days it feels like an eternity, but other days it honestly feels like yesterday. I suppose that’s parenting in a nutshell. We’ll celebrate my husband’s sixth Father’s Day on June 16. The other day we thought back to his very first one and how it’s not really unlike how we’ll spend this one. We’ll make daddy a special breakfast and give him some presents, and then we’ll go see
all of the other important father figures in our lives, including our fathers and grandparents. We’ll take lots of pictures and make lots of new memories we can cherish for years to come. It’ll continue to be important to us that we celebrate all the fathers in our lives, whether they’re here with us, celebrating from far away or are no longer with us on this earth. If you’re looking for a special way to celebrate the dads in your life, we’ve got some great ideas inside this issue. Check out our dad-themed products on page 7, as well as a list of great dads in literature on page 8. I hope all you dads out there have a great time celebrating. Happy summer!
