So, it's impossible to get Alex to say what he wants to do for Father's Day 2012.
It's a big deal, the first one, surviving almost 7 months - and more than surviving, thriving! Being a wonderful dad! So Atticus and I want to celebrate him for that... and we're coming up empty.
Which brings us back to what always works best: FOOD.
Alex is more of a lunch/dinner guy than breakfast or brunch, mostly because he hates mornings. Atticus being smiley in the mornings helps, but still, it's a struggle.
So our plan is this (shhh, don't tell him). We're going to let him sleep late. As late as we can muster.
Meanwhile, the two of us are going to try our darnedest to make Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine (we don't know which one he likes best). And then we will keep it available for whenever he wakes up! No breakfast in bed, no early morning surprise, just a delicious meal ready whenever he is ready to eat it!
We'll also be going for a second brunch at Katie's apartment, to celebrate my dad. Or Pop, as Atticus knows him. That will be fun.
Alex has requested time spent at the Father's Day March against Stop and Frisk.
So we'll do that, then come home and eat again! Hopefully with his help cooking, this time...
I bought a BEE-YOO-TI-FUL steak from Fresh Direct, which was a very big deal, and we'll have it with gorgonzola mashed potatoes and grilled onions, maybe some salad or broccoli rabe, if we still have it around.
We are hoping he likes it, because, to be honest, we have no idea.
