The greatest Father’s Day gift ever

daddypicWe celebrated Father’s Day just a few days ago, and this was my first as an actual father. Last year my wife got a jumper (outfit) for a child that looked like a baseball uniform. I think it was created for a boy, but it was close enough to being unisex (white with red pinstripes) so it mattered not that a few months later we found out we were having a girl.

Anyhow, a week before this Father’s Day, I went to the card shop and my wife stayed in the car with our daughter. When I came out, she went in. Why? She wouldn’t tell me.

I thought she went in to purchase a gift certificate for me, because you know all father’s in our hobby would appreciate such a gesture. But it turned out she was buying a display case for a custom baseball. The ball has a picture of my daughter and I on one side, and then my wife used a gold ink pad and placed my daughter’s hand print on the other. You can see the ball in the image above … uh, never mind that clutter behind the ball and my picture frame, that’s just my work desk. Ha.
