Flat Daddy


Guess what we got in the mail today??? Our very own "flat daddy". (Click

here for a description of what a flat daddy is!) Andy arranged for one to be made and shipped to us, and the kids have been sooooo super excited about it! Flat daddy has taken a nap with Andrew, had a tea party with Anna Kate and eaten supper with us tonight. The funniest thing is that he was going to "sleep" with Andrew tonight BUT.... my little man came stumbling into our bedroom, bleary eyed and sleepy (holding flat daddy) and said "Mommy, he be-wongs in here in the bed with you in the night-time". My sweet little man. So at present, he is lying in our bed amidst the pillows. A little wierd looking, to tell you the truth! Thanks Andy (and to J., another pilot's wife, for her help). Flat daddy is lookin' good.... and we are happy have "you"... even if you are just in 2-D!

Thanks to everyone for your incredibly sweet comments on my previous post. I've decided that posting every 2-3 days will be a good balance for me right now... and maybe more if I have the time, but we'll see!!

Happy Tuesday and
Much Love,

Jennifer I love it! A couple of months back we saw a special on one of the news show about these.
I can't wait until Andy gets home so he can do all those things and more!
Hugs to you

Wow, this has really touched me, I just don't know what to say. I am glad that "Flat Daddy" helps you all out a bit, but I can't help but feel so sad that you all even have to have a "Flat Daddy" okay I am about to start crying, God Bless You and Your Family!

Wow, how sweet and precious. Makes me realize all the more what a sacrifice our men in the military make... Thanks for sharing this sweet post.

Jennifer said...

Ahhh....that is so precious! So touching!

We didn't know about anything like that when dh was deployed, so I made a huggable "daddy" pillow for my daughter. (Body pillow with Daddy's face ironed on the pillow case). It's amazing what a difference these things can make.

(((hugs)))

Hey Baby! I got to see the picture this time....looks great! I'm really glad you and the kids are enjoying the "flat daddy"; won't be long till I'll be home and you can have me in 3D! Love you always,
Andy
