for those of us whose children dont see their daddies?
carer at nursery gently took me aside the other day and asked what i wanted them to do about a fathers day card. did i want dd to make one etc etc. i thought for a minute and said yes. so will i send it to the b***d or keep it in the box with all her other stuff in? tonight im well past caring, its been a crap day but im interested in what everyone else is doing. (im a nosey bugger).
My ex just happens to be up visiting the weekend of fathers day even though he should have been up 3 weeks previous to it,he couldnt get up for any the kids birthdays but manages up for fathers day funbny that hey!! well is he in for a shock cause we,me and my kids,are taking my dad out for the day ALL DAy so ex wont be seeing them or at the most fopr 1/2 hour before we go out,if he cant make the effort for the kids then he sure as hell aint getting praised for being a father.!!
It's DD's 2nd bday on the 19th! So we're going to have a family meal with two cakes - one of her and one for Daddy and Grandpa. Along with pressies, balloons and the like. And hopefully BBQ, although that may have to be moved into the conservatory.
mine stay with their father every second weekend & even though he is a prime a**e in my opinion, I will get the children to scribble on a card & they can choose something for him in the £1 shop!!!
I know that if I don't encourage them to do something, it will be thrown back in my face during one of our many arguments.
ex does nothing for mothers day, but i (magnanimous creature that I am) give him the card that DD makes at nursery.
He will get a present from me shortly after hell freezes over and satan ties on his ice skates.
just getting him a card, thats all. im presuming he wants to come and see her, but again he hasnt said anything so far, so I probably wont here til saturday night like usual and I will have to yet again try and drill it in that I want a weeks notice of when he thinks he is able to come, not just to tell me and expect me to drop everything just so he can come. would have thought his last visit would have taught him better
Euugh, Prettyfly, this is a tough one. I never do anything for Father's Day because my children's father never contacts them except for Christmas and birthdays (and then it's only cards, never a phone call). I hate those father's day assemblies that everyone is supposed to go to. Last year at DS's school, they all painted pictures of their daddy "or another important man in their life". DS painted the au-pair. Mortifying.
im stuck what to do for fathers day my partner has just left me and our 2 little ones recently to go be with someone else so i dont feel like he should get a fathers day card but at the end of the day hes still their father
so i really dont know
