The baby countdown is officially on. I am an expecting father of a baby girl. My life is filled with excitement, nervousness and pure joy, all at the same time. The feelings are real, and the importance in being a parent has hit me in the face. I want to be the best father that I can be. I am constantly reading articles and books for preparation. I am also actually listening to the unsolicited advice from veteran fathers at my job.
This is strange for me, because I am the type of man that separates work from my personal life. There is no person at my job that has any clue about who I really am and how I conduct my life. I don’t reveal the “complexities of me” to my co-workers. Our conversations are superficial, even when they may not seem like it to an onlooker.
However, I have forced myself to slightly change this philosophy. In reality, I have no idea about the complexities of my co-workers as parents. “Parent” is not just a title, like the respective ones that we have when we punch in. Parenting may be the most important responsibility that there is in life. The importance is the same no matter race, religion, or orientation.
I am finding that it is actually ok to peel back a layer of complexity. It’s not just about me. It’s ok to overlap this part of my life with my work life. Parenting doesn’t have a time off button. It is continuous. I will need guidance and support. Big and small. A simple baby congratulation card is a great reminder that parenting is a special thing.
Recognizing milestones with a greeting card makes such an impact on someone’s life. Having a baby is such a special time in anyone’s life so this makes for the perfect time to add light to an already special moment with a Baby Congratulations Card.
The Gallery Collection offers new baby photo mounted cards that are so dynamic with their foil designs and embossed stamping. They are sure to bring on smiles when received.
The Colorful Baby Congrats cards in particular is a simple card perfect for whether the bundle of joy is a little prince or precious princess. The stripes and polka dotted details add the perfect touch to the card.
Lately, I’m a fan of the vertical orientation cards as they offer something a little different. The Congrats Mobile Card is just delightful. The mobile is dangling sheep set against a backdrop of the blue sky and stars.
Another of my favorites is the Welcome Baby Card. The banner across the top with the clothes line below is so different. The onesie, sock and bag hanging from the line are nice touches, but what really makes me smile is the floppy bunny suspended by a clothes pin.
Customize your card with a greeting wishing the new family happiness with their new bundle of joy and best wishes for a fun-filled future.
