Daddy-to-be Survival Kit


Since this is Doug's first baby I wanted to do something super sweet for him. He has been a god send through this whole pregnancy. He has been to every apt. (for both momma & baby!) and has dropped everything he is doing when I needed him. 
He is so excited for his little girl to arrive. When we started talking about the baby shower, I knew I wanted him to be involved too. He is going to be a first time parent too. I didn't think it was fair for me to get all the attention. So we decided to have a couples shower.
Then I started thinking about the shower and how many showers I had been to where the mom gets special gifts, but the dad doesn't. I knew that this would probably happen at ours too but I wanted to show him how much he meant to me and how grateful I was.
This honestly took me hours to complete.
More so just thinking of all the little fun things I could put into it!!

Snickers: Because sometimes you just need to laugh!
Socks: You will be doing lots of rocking!
Shirts: For all those spit up messes, you'll need to change too!
Pop Rocks: Because you are my rock.
Candle: So you never feel like you are in the dark.
Coffee K-Cups: For times you need a pick me up, and fast!
Venti Coffee Cup: Because sometimes you are going to need a Venti.
Travel Mug: She is going to keep us on the move!
Granola Bars: For mornings we're just too tired to make breakfast.
Salt & Pepper Chips: For those late night feedings.
Tootsie Rolls:  To remind you to roll with the punches.
Erasers: We're both going to make mistakes.
Life Savers: Because you are my life saver.
Paper Clip: To help you hold it all together.
Sugar Daddy: You're the best one I know.
Advil: When all else fails, take 2!!
Diaper Bag (not pictured): So you always have a back up.

  1. How to Make Pemmican The Ultimate Survival Food

    People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it. These guys were the last generation to practice basic things-for a living-that we call survival skills now.

    Click on the link bellow to find out how the early pioneers - who had a long hard journey ahead - built the Self-Feeding Fire in order to take a much needed refreshing nap (no need to add logs).

    Survival Things Our Great Grandfathers Did Or Built Around The House.

    Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets...

    So I really can't think of anyone more qualified in sharing real-life survival lessons than people who lived through times like these.
