Father’s Day at the Serious House


This year for Father’s Day, Mr. Serious got some very special artwork. Two years ago, I did some artwork for Mr. Serious for Father’s Day and he loved it.

I painted this canvas, and put some cute #1 foot prints and pictures on it for him to take to work. It was also framed, but I don’t have a picture of that. I also did a collage for the house.

So, this year, I had to do the same thing. And, one easy thing about having your kids’ birthdays one day apart? They are the same age on holidays (roughly).

But, there was a twist. This year, #1 got to paint the canvas. And while it doesn’t look like it, they are the same colors. It also has #2’s cute footprints this time and pictures. And, of course, there is now a collage wall hanging for the house.

Of course, Mr. Serious loved them. #1 presented the canvas to him saying “here daddy, I painted this for you!” She has been wanting to paint non-stop ever since.

At his request, after church and nap time, we headed up to the pool for a swim in what felt like bath water.
He and #1 had a great time. She kept jumping in the water and was even trying to swim to us. I never would have guessed my water fearing baby from last year would be such a fish this year.

Happy Father’s Day, babe. You are the best father the girls could ever ask for.
