Father’s Day Gift Guide 5

I have a friend that always buys the best gifts.  She is a gift fairy and someone that I aspire to be.  There is a real knack to buying the perfect gift.  So I decided to ask the husbeast what would be on his Father’s Day gift guide in the hope of helping.  Well, it turns out he is a simple man and would be really happy with a bucketful of Malteezers and some good quality coffee!   So we bribed him with some Malteezers and a cup of Columbian and this is the Fathers Day Gift Guide we came up with!

Simple Father’s Day card – Hap-pea Father’s Day 7

I absolutely adore this simple Father’s Day card that has been designed for you by my fab 11 year old Maxi.  It is perfect for adding a little colour to as he has or for you to colour in completely and I am sure that any Dad would love being wished a Hap-pea Father’s Day.  This card was inspired by the fact that MadDad is currently growing peas in the garden.

There is nothing better than receiving a kids made card and Father’s Day is no exception.  I love getting creative with the MiniMads and coming up with ideas for this years card for MadDad.  The boys love their father and there is something about watching the Husbeast with his boys that makes me go weak at the knees.


My Father’s legacy 8

I think that my Father and Grandfather both effected my choice in men, when it came to MadDad I fell hook line and sinker for a man with echo’s of the other great men in my life. A better husband I could not have and I have had the pleasure of watching him become a great Father over these last seven years. I should have known he would do it well, as he injected me in y butt three times a day for the whole of my pregnancies and was just amazing. Watching him grow and develop with our boys has touched my heart. He makes me proud every single day and they both love him and choose to spend time with him. He is a great Father.

But my Father’s legacy doesn’t end with my boys, oh no you only have to take a look at my younger brother and the way he is with his children. He is a wonderful father to Chuky, ever the child himself. His nephews adore spending time with him and he is a good honest man. He adores his step grandchildren and is starting to look more and more like my Dad.

I am so lucky to have so many great men in my life. Happy Fathers day, to those living and to those who’s echos live on.
