Before the news really even sunk in for me, I knew I had to figure out a way to surprise Jason who was already on his way home from work. I decided I wanted to get him some kind of baby gift (onesie, toy, book) that related to "the current". I ran to Target and found the perfect card. I was looking for some sort of sailboat or fish-themed gender-neutral gift and finally settled on a onesie with a whale on it. There's an Office Max in the same plaza as the Target, so I decided to print out a picture of Ellen's text and stick it in the card. This is what I ended up getting him:
Jason knew I was hosting a bridal shower for my best friend Trish that weekend, so he wasn't fazed when I showed him the card and said, "Look at this card I got for Trish". He read the card and I watched for his reaction. He was clearly confused. It took him a minute but he finally got it.
So on this first Father's Day, I couldn't be more excited for my amazing husband who is FINALLY closer than ever to achieving his goals that he set when he was just 22 years old. This is a journal entry that he wrote in May of 2001.
