A year ago this week, as I licked the envelope on my dad’s father’s day card, it dawned on me…’this time next year, I’ll be a father too’.
I tried to imagine how it would feel; how my life would have changed. I had no idea. And I could never have guessed!
My first Father’s Day will be pretty low key. Baby Callum is far too young to take in the enormity of the occasion, of course.
To him, I’m still, ‘the big, funny-lookin’ one, who enjoys pulling faces and swinging him around’.
He’ll have many years to pamper me with cards and gifts.
I put together an alternative gift guide for new dads for Father’s Day. You can find it HERE. There’s no ‘real’ gifts there — because I know what I’m getting.
His gift will be a smile, a cuddle and a full diaper in the morning and I’ll be a happy new daddy.
