6/17/7....Father's Day 2007
Well, let's start at the beginning.
Some highlights of Gage & Daddy....
And that, my friends, is Damon being a dad. And...Gage growing up before our very eyes!
And, the beginning of Father's Day 2007 really leaves off @ the night before.
So, on 6/16, we had the party. Guests cleared out around 2:30. Melis & Colin had to get up & leave around 3:45.
So, the baby went down to bed later than normal for him.
At 6am, he woke up wanting milk-milk. So, did that...he wanted to rock, so we rocked as he took his bottle.
I hear the cell phone ring.
I keep rocking. My brain starts thinking: who in the world is calling me at 6am on a Sunday morning? It must be an emergency. So, when I finished rocking Gage, I went & checked my phone. 7 missed calls from Melissa's cell. Oh no.
Called her. Colin lost his wallet. That sucks. I looked ALL OVER MY HOUSE, including Gage's room, where I just got him back to sleep. Didn't matter-he was fine. And tired.
Looked in my car. Looked in my yard, on the back patio, everywhere. Nothing. No luck.
They had to file a police report, go through all of this crap, and FINALLY got back to STL Sunday evening. Bless their hearts. I just felt so bad for them.
Anyway....Gage slept until 11:38. I of course dozed on the couch after looking for the wallet, and prior to Gage waking. Damon didn't get up until 12:30, b/c after all, we'd been up late the night before, Gage had been quiet, and it was Father's Day!
So, he opened his gift from Gage...
It's from Brookstone. It's a case that includes all kinds of waterhose attachments for washing the cars at home. I thought Damon would really like it....I mean, Gage wanted to get it for his Daddy.
Then, Damon b*tched about it, but he cooked breakfast. [i'm not super-enthused about cooking, and then if I say that I will do it, he wants to tell me WHAT to cook & micro-manage my cooking...so, it's not that enjoyable. we've discussed this a lot, and he's getting better...but still...I don't enjoy cooking THAT much.]
So, we had pancakes & sausage for breakfast, and it was great b/c HE cooked it.
After that....lazy/play time.... Gage got sleepy again around 2:30. He & Damon took a nap.... After that I took Gage outside to play while Damon watched the U.S. Open. We had party leftovers for dinner....
I'd say he had a pretty good Father's Day!
