When Bear was born, I was flooded with gifts and congratulations and Mr. C became head tea maker. I noticed how his new venture into fatherhood wasn’t as acknowledged as my new venture into motherhood. So I looked for the perfect gift for Mr. C to mark the occasion and found a wonderful print on ‘Not on the High Street’. The print is personalised and so I set about writing a poem ‘Thank you Daddy’, from Bear to his Daddy that could be treasured forever.
The print now hangs at the bottom of the stairs. Now Bear is a bit older he tells everyone it is the poem he gave to his daddy. I love little gifts like this and think they can always be kept, to remind us of all the special moments. Our print has made such a great little gift, that has kept over the years and is the perfect way to frame the amazing bond between father and son.
We share a lot of our special letters, so that the boys can go back and read them when they grow up. So here is Bear’s special poem to his Daddy.
Thank you Daddy
Thank you Daddy for all my cuddles,
And not getting angry when I cry,
Thank you Daddy for looking after Mummy,
And being good at DIY,
Thank you Daddy for my handsome looks,
Let’s hope I get your height,
Thank you Daddy for my amazing pout,
And passing the Spotlight,
Thank you Daddy for making me,
I’ll have the ladies queuing,
Thank you Daddy for your attentive ways,
You can teach me to be charming,
Thank you Daddy for loving me,
I’ll always love you too,
But most of all, Thank you Daddy,
Just for being you.
