Father's Day

Hey ladies...

I've been thinking alot about my little Lucy as we approach Father's Day. I was so disappointed this past Mother's Day when no one did anything special for me and I was thinking that I didn't want the same experience for my DH. Is anyone planning anything special in honor of their lost little ones for their DH or SO?

I was wondering what to do for James too. He doesn't wear jewelery. He gave me a ring with an aquamarine in it. That is Tessa's birthstone. I was thinking maybe a sterling silver key chain with her name and a stone in it? Does anyone have a better suggestion?

That is actually a very good idea!

That sounds like a very nice idea. I thought about getting my SO a ring with his name and angel date engraved in it. I know he wouldn't want it to be very conspicuous because he wouldn't want to have to explain it to people...

Thanks, Ladies. Great ideas. I want my DH to remember that he's already a daddy, even if Lucy isn't with us on Father's day!

I've been MIA from the boards for awhile...bought a new house...been moving in....anyway...

I've been searching for something for my husband too. I'm assuming my husband did nothing for me for Mother's Day because we were in the process of buying our new house...I didn't let it get to me, he's never been real good about buying gifts for anyone for anything. I was more hurt and upset that my mother didn't do anything for me, but again, she's always been one to FORGET or say that she's going to do something or that she has done something she just has to put it in the mail and nothing ever comes....ok I'm done complaining.

I've been looking at the dog tags pendants http://www.myforeverchild.com has to offer, but the engraving doesn't look perfect so I can't decide. He currently wears the medallion that came with Jack's ashes on a hemp necklace, so I figured the dog tag might be something he would like.

I'll let you know if I come up with more ideas.

I dont have any ideas. I'm not going to get anything for DH cause i know that will upset him more. He didnt do anything for me for mothers day because he felt too upset, so i dont want to hurt him.

So no ideas here, sorry! Smile

Sarah ... you make an interesting point. I wonder if I'm transfering the way I was feeling on to him ... not good. I did end up buying a gift, but I think I will watch him carefully and decide if it will just upset him more.

As we say on this board all the time ... men and women grieve sooo differently.

Oh, I ended up buying these really pretty sterling silver collar stays that they engraved messages from me on. They obviously wouldn't work for everyone, but they are perfect for my DH.

My Dh kept asking me what I was getting him for Father's Day. He was going to get me jewlry for MDay, but I got concert tickets instead. I think we're just giving each other presents, but not ones with deep meaning. I had planned on getting him a blue tooth headset for his phone. Instead, we decided to pursue adoption and I gave him the paperwork for his present.
