My Father has a common practice for the week prior to father’s day. He will look over his wardrobe, his tools, anything he may need, and he gets it himself. I have learned a few years ago that he does this just so me and mom don’t have to worry about getting him something for the upcoming day in question.

This has lead to the tradition of my mother pulling me aside every day a week prior to father’s day, and complaining about how hard he makes father’s day for her.

Myself personally, i took the hint, and started my own tradition of getting him a card and some jelly beans 5 minutes before the Supermarket closes. He seem to appreciate this gesture.

One Last thing i want to mention, last year he attempted to purchase jelly beans for himself . It was the first and only time I’ve ever slapped something out of my father’s hands. Happy Father’s Day =).
