First off, Father’s Day. Curly is blessed with two wonderful grandfathers, which would make Nutella and I blessed with two wonderful fathers. We are thankful for them and while Curly will not be celebrating Father’s Day within our immediate household, he can certainly celebrate it for their sakes. His daycare put aside a couple days this week to work on crafts for Father’s Day, and we were curious what they would do for a two mom household. We weren’t left out though- we got a card and a mug with his footprint on it just like everyone else. We also decided to attend the Father’s Day BBQ on Friday late afternoon. It was very inclusive, but also kind of lame so we didn’t stay long…just long enough for Curly to get all sticky-sloppy while slowly eating a slice of watermelon.
Thanks to those who asked questions in the comments of our last post. We are always up for new questions or possible blog topics- don’t want to have jumped the shark yet! The first question appears below, and since the second question is R-rated, that answer will be locked down later this week :-)
Jen asked: Did you decide on having kids before you got married or was it something you discovered afterwards?
Nutella has always wanted to be a mother, so for her it was a given. I wasn’t so sure, but since I knew I was marrying someone with such a strong desire to parent, I also knew what I was in for. Since Nutella was ready to go for it earlier than I was, we discussed it and came up with a time line as a compromise. It was probably about 3 years later than she would’ve liked (which I am still shocked at!), but I needed the time to get comfortable with the idea. Still, it all worked out in the end.
PS- SOMEONE may have been spotted taking two unassisted steps between chairs this weekend….!
PPS- …and also may have had his first ride on a carousel…
