The present I won't be giving my husband for Father's Day.
Julie Wolfson: When I was pregnant with my first daughter, I found the doctor's appointment to be exciting. The doctor gave us copies of grainy, gray images showing us that our little baby was growing. I may have even carried the first sonogram photos to share with the grandparents. Maybe one of these images even made it into the baby book.
Now that we have two kids, just as much as any mom, I love to take cute pictures of our adorable daughters. In our house, there are photos in albums, on the computer, in our phones, on the wall. You get the picture. And we've all seen moms wear their children's names or images on jewelry
. It's cute. Many of these trinkets are cherished Mother's Day
presents. (Are you wearing one right now?)
But when I saw on NOTCOT a pair of cufflinks
with sonograms photos, I almost spit out the iced tea I was drinking. Just in case you were looking for the perfect present, tiny sonogram images can be fused to a set of cufflinks. Then Dad will feel that he must wear these cufflinks to his next formal event.
(Though my husband and I enjoy dressing up and going out, we haven't been to an event where people wear cufflinks in quite some time. Maybe not since our own wedding.)
So be a happy, proud parent. Wear your child's name or image to celebrate the love of parenting
. Please let me know if your husband is wearing his sonogram cufflinks. Maybe it will be the best $65 you have ever spent -- but for me personally, this Father's Day my daughters and I will be trying to think of another fun gift to tell him that we love him.
