I too gave my husband a present that day. Not so much one of an apology but more of a "SURPRISE!!! Our life is changing FOREVER!!!! ...please forget our fight this morning and hold me and tell me its going to be okay because I am a mess" kind of gift!
His present, packed full of hormones and emotion came with a very sweet card written from a child to their daddy explaining the example he was to set, the excitement that was in store and the heartaches that Lance would endure as a parent.
He originally thought that I was trying to make an example that we can't fight like that because we were going to start trying for a baby in a few months and that type behavior would not be acceptable by either of us. The card became more clear however, when I handed him a pretty bag, stuffed with tissue paper and a Texas Ranger jersey folded within the sack. Another note said something to the phrase of: , "I am still not sure if we will need a big red and blue bow and denim skirt, or a pair of khaki shorts and flip flops to be just like you. But either way, you are going to be a daddy!"
He may have realized in that moment that he probably wasn't 100% in the wrong during the AM fight, that my raging hormones could have been part to blame for the argument that neither of us could begin to tell you what it was about now, but like a smart man, he held his lip on the subject. Instead, he held me, cried with me, and assured me we would be a great team.
And he was right!
And now he FINALLY fits into Lance's surprise!! (your options are limited at 11:00 at night, in Godley TX!)
Walmart had nothing in sports for an infant other than NASCAR, so I went with the 2T jersey... "SURPRISE!! We are having a toddler!!"
And I am sure this is not his daddy's proudest picture of him... but funny nonetheless!
I thought the jersey deserved a post!
