Father’s Day—What’s the Plan?




It’s Father’s Day this Sunday. Are you going to celebrate?


I think the best way to make Mark happy is to hand him the newspaper and ask him if I can refill his coffee? That’s a start anyway.


He wants to feel special, who doesn’t, and now that Mother’s Day is over, it’s his turn. It’s the small things, those unexpected, thoughtful gestures that are important.


Since fatherhood isn’t just one day a year, we splurge and celebrate the entire weekend.


Here is what I’m thinking:

  • Mark loves eggs benedict. Maybe breakfast in bed.

  • Our daughter and son-in-law will be with us. Game night is always fun and a good way for us to express our competitiveness.

  • A walk by the river and a lobster roll for lunch. Yum!

  • A special home-cooked dinner with a good bottle of wine or two.

  • A fruit pie always brings a smile to his face and that’s nice to see.


All of that is nice, but the truth is I’m going to have to up my game.


For Mother’s Day, Mark gave me a box of chocolates filled with caramel, my absolute favorites—a treat we enjoyed every night. Since, in my opinion, not all the chocolates are equal I paid close attention to my selection and felt sad when I noticed we were getting close to the end of the box. However, the next evening, when I opened the box for my nightly delight, there seemed to be a few more. I assumed I’d miscounted the previous night and I devoured my choice. The next evening when I looked in the box, mysteriously, they had reproduced. To my delight this continued for the next week. I did ask Mark if he was my chocolate fairy but he looked at me, with a straight face, and said he had no idea what I was talking about.


So I ask, how am I going to top that? Do you have any ideas? Let me know, please. :)


What about you, what are your plans?
