Earlier this year our MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group gave us a "Thank You Kit For Moms". It was really cute! It can also be adapted for Dads and since Father's Day is coming up I thought I would share what goes into the kit. I changed a few of them as well
for always loving your kids unconditionally
for times when parenting seems insurmountable
Almond Joy Bar
for all the joy you've given them
for helping them grow into the person they're becoming
for all of your advice
for your sunny outlook and for brightening their days
for telling them about the one true Light
for being flexible
for being so valuable
for being their cheerleader
for being a "M"arvelous "M"om
to celebrate your victories
to remind you to keep going and going
Smiley face sticker
to wish you happy days ahead
so you can sit back and relax
for times when you feel burnt out
to remind you that everyone makes mistakes
to remind you to let the small stuff roll off your shoulders
Sweet & Sour Candy
to remind you every child is different
to help you keep it all together
Now, if I were receiving this from my boys I would definitely want the candy to king sized and the bag to be Vera Bradley! Oh, and is the jewel a diamond?
For Dad you might try something like...
*a reusable water or coffee mug instead of a bag
*having your children decorate each side of the bag
*including 2 batteries and the small Daddy gadget to put them in
*different candy Snickers (because you make us laugh) Reese's Pieces (because you love us to pieces) etc.
*come up with a Bible verse that describes the character
You could also do a Thank You Wife or Thank you Husband bag!!
I'd love to hear what you decide to do to appreciate the husband/father/daddy in your life!!
Hmm...someone clearly needs help appreciating their wonderful Daddy!!
