my plan to surprise him had to include a diversion, so i told him he could get the one thing he's been asking for for the past 6 years (besides a baby)...now don't cringe or think i'm crazy, but i told him he could get a hand gun.
of course, i told him that those two gifts would have to also be his un-father's day present and anniversary present for next month. however, he did get one more present, this time not from me. our neighbor and wonderful friend, sarah, made him the most delicious banana pudding that he devoured. seriously, i didn't even get a taste. it was gone in one sitting. the sweetest part about it was the beautiful poem that she had written for him. i loved it so much that i just had to include it in this post:
there are so many little ones you've showered with your love.
we know that one is watching and waiting up above.
you've held so many little ones and kept them safe from harm.
we know that one is waiting now to come into your arms.
your little one is there and watching all you do.
your bravery and strength are known, your patience and kindness, too.
your laugh, your smile and all your quirks to little one are known.
we hope that soon this little one will come into your home.
with hearts full of hopeful faith, we pray for your little one,
and we can't wait to see in your arms your daughter or your son.
isn't she amazing?!? we were blown away by her kindness and thoughtfulness.
so, you can see how spoiled B is, now...and i'm pretty spoiled to have him in my life.
