ArmyWifey8.23:  My FI is not a dad yet, but he’s the same way!!  

I always skim Groupon or Living Social for inpiration.  Whether it’s a trip or a voucher for something, they have cool stuff.  What does he do?  I’m assuming he’s in the army?  I like to get my FI gift cards for restaurant’s he frequents near work so it compels him to get out of the office from time to time.

I have no idea. He’s a father, but his children aren’t mine and they don’t live with us. His kids are cute, but I hardly know them and their mom isn’t my biggest fan. I wasn’t even sure if it would be appropriate for me to celebrate Father’s Day with him as it feels like it isn’t really my place. I would gladly participate in something initiated by his ex, but I’m sure that won’t be happening. Actually, I have a feeling that the only way he’ll get any acknowledgement on the day at all is if I provide it, but I have no idea what to do! I’ve asked him multiple times what he wants and he says “IDK” or “nothing,” but I know he’s lying. Sigh. 

I don’t want to do a weekend away, because I don’t want to take him away from the phone in case his kids call. I try not to cook a meal on special occasions because my husband is bluntly critical of my cooking and I’ll just cry if he says “I like the skin on my roasted chicken a little crispier than this.” IDK, maybe I’ll just buy something generic on Amazon. Smh.

I made him a card and got him a nice belt he’s been wanting, we’re expecting later this summer.

A train horn for his car. Lmao. We have a tradition of really silly gifts for Father’s Day. Last year it was a USB coffee warmer for his office.
