Father’s Day

June 18, 2007

I had the boys yesterday, to celebrate Father’s Day. Quite what we’re celebrating I’m not sure but it was an excuse to have another day with the boys.

I know the traditional thing is to go out for lunch etc but when your boys are small they’re not really at the enjoying a leisurely lunch stage. So we spent the day walking in the woods, colouring, watching Harry Potter (thankfully the younger of them is not a cat, otherwise his curiosity, in the form as asking as many questions as possible about what is going on, might be going on or might happen next may have led to his demise), wrestling and playing football in the park. All in all a great day. Was it different to any other Sunday? Not really, just today I consiously thought about how lucky I am to have two great kids, rather than just being unconsiously aware of it.
