Hi there girls

Right then, Fathers day is upon us, only just over a month to think about it and I was wondering if any of you have any good ideas??  I'm into nice "wouldn't of thought of that" things for DH and have done the Daddy keyring, magic tile mug etc but want this years to be extra special as we've been through a tough few months (see signature) and would really like this years to be very special

Hope you girls can help but I'm sure you can

I always love poems. They can be funny, personal, emotional, anything you want them to be. You can use a poem as a model, and change the words to make them more personal and poignant. You can then print it and mount/frame it with either a photograph or picture made by your LO for a really special keepsake.

I'll have a look for some poems that can be easily adapted to give you an idea of what I mean.

Sorry, I have just had an "evil" thought ... or is it  ;D

On father's day we should present our DHs/DPs with their sons/daughters, wish them happy Fathers Day and leave them too it for the day!
Take ourselves off on a pamper day  ;D  Let Father be it!  ;)

Hi,

I just saw this one on that site...

A Father's Day Poem (sent in by one of our visitors)

Happy Father's Day to you.
Do you know how much I love you?
I love you with all my heart.
I miss you when we are apart.
I think of you all day.
I have fun when we play.
This poem is about to end
I LOVE YOU!
From your best friend.

Perfect!!!  That's a great site, I'll make some handprint ones for Grandma. 

Dont you love the fact that you'll go to so much effort for them doing something so personal but on mothers day its a bunch of flowers and maybe some chocolates...!!!

Back again....

Here's a few ideas I've had so far.....

This is just lovely...

What Makes a Dad

God took the strength of a mountain,
The majesty of a tree,
The warmth of a summer sun,
The calm of a quiet sea,
The generous soul of nature,
The comforting arm of night,
The wisdom of the ages,
The power of the eagle's flight,
The joy of a morning in spring,
The faith of a mustard seed,
The patience of eternity,
The depth of a family need,
Then God combined these qualities,
When there was nothing more to add,
He knew His masterpiece was complete,
And so,

He called it ... Dad

This poem could be mounted with a photo of daddy dressed up as Santa, or a photo of child & daddy holding hands

My Daddy Is The Greatest

For the Father of a Boy and One for daddy's girl...

http://www.indianchild.com/fathers_day_poems.htm

This one could go with a photo of daddy carrying LO on his shoulders....

Daddy's Shoulders
Sitting high on Daddy's shoulders,
I look both up and down.
There are so many people
Hurrying all around.
It is just much too scary
(Until the day I'm older,)
Which is why for now I feel safe
Sitting high on Daddy's shoulders.


This one's short and sweet!

I never got to choose you
But what great taste, Mum had
She picked the bestest hubby
And I got the bestest Dad


These are just ones I've found on the net so far. If I get time (and if anyone wants more) I'll find some that can be altered and personalised

Love Jo xx

a friend of a friend started to make herself finger print of kids that are then put on a pendent that daddy could have on his chain close to his heart or on a keyring I guess if daddy is not the kind to wear a chain.

This is the poem Josh and I wrote for DH last year.  I'm working on something a bit more moving for this year!! ;D

My daddy gives me everything
that I could ever need.
He gives me milk at breakfast time
and nappies, when I've weed.

Daddy says that when I'm big
there's so much we can do.
Like making things and playing games
And catching fishes too.

My Daddy goes to work each day
and sometimes goes at night.
I love it best when he's at home
then everything's alright.

I love my Mummy too, of course
cause she looks after me.
But when my Daddy picks me up
I laugh and smile with glee.

He is so clever and so strong,
the Dad that I have got.
I wouldn't swap him for another
- the best Dad of the lot.

xx Clare
