Father's Day Gift (crop)Last Friday, March 19th, was Father’s Day in Spain. My wife asked me for a recent photograph of Nora for a gift for me. I had no idea what it was going to be, but I printed a crop of her head from my current favorite photo. That night, when she got back from daycare, she brought with her a very pleasant surprise.

Here you go, Daddy!

Thank you, Nora!

She helped me unwrap the crinkly tissue paper.

Daddy’s surprise. It was two gifts.

Father's Day Gift
The first was a card, which read:

De tu mano
voy a aprender
lo que mañana
voy a ser.

Feliz dí­a, papá!

Which translates to:

From your hand
I’m going to learn
what tomorrow
I will be.

Happy day, Dad!

And she “signed” the inside of the card.

The other gift was a laminated ornament thing with a suction cup on it, presumably for hanging in the car, or on a window or something.

Daddy! You’re doing it wrong!

Thank you, Nora, and thank you to your thoughtful daycare helpers for making this gift for me.
