Happy Father’s Day Weekend

Father’s Day is drawing near and my little monkeys have been excited about what to get their Dad for Father’s Day. My husband is one of the hardest working men I know. He works long days through the week and is exhausted when he gets home. We all love and appreciate him more than he will ever know. We are so blessed to have such a loving husband and father in our lives.

The kids really had their heart set on buying a new leather recliner for their Dad, his is broken and not as comfortable these days. Unfortunately the cost of a recliner doesn’t fit within our budget this month but crafty gifts do! My husband mentioned that he would like something the kids made or painted for Fathers Day.

So I snagged a couple of his terracotta pots and I let the kids picked out some herbs from the store they will plant in the pots they paint. While at the store we found more crafty items, like letters that spell DAD. I gave each one a letter to paint however they wanted. They are proud of their creations and can’t wait to give them to their Dad.

For my Father’s Birthday today we found some letters that spelled PAPA to paint and a plain blue t-shirt that they each put their painted hand print on. I used some puffy paint to put their names next to each hand, it’s so cute! I wanna make one for my husband now and I think I’m gonna…ha ha!

I want to wish all the Fathers a happy and wonderful Father’s Day on Sunday. Thank you for all the hard work you give to your family and for always being there.

Hi, I am a blessed Mom of 3 little monkeys, 2 boys and 1 girl but my life has been full of little monkeys even before I became a Mom. I've worked in the veterinary field for about 20 years now and have taken care of many animals either in boarding, general medical and emergencies. I've been an emergency technician for the past 13 years and it has allowed me to have more one on one attention with my other little monkeys, my patients. Children and Animals have always been close to my heart and I love learning what I can to help them feel safe and secure and be happy and healthy. I have been with the love of my life for 16 years, he is a wonderful husband and father. My husband has a green thumb particularly favors tropical plants so I may chat about that from time to time. I enjoy scrap booking, themed birthday parties and kids crafts. I attend continuing education classes and conferences to keep up with the ever changing animal world. I am big on client education and making sure people are familiar with their pets needs. I'm looking forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions in this monkey world of mine.
