Last year I began a Father's Day tradition that I hope to continue each year. As Father's Day approaches I mull over one of my husband's positive qualities and write a letter to my children about that trait. I try to flush out what that characteristic looks like in real life and why it makes me glad to have married him. I finish the letter with a story or two from our relationship thus far that illustrates the characteristic.
On Father's Day I give the letter to R to read and then keep a copy of the letter in a binder for each of my children; some day when they are old enough I will give the collection to them to keep.
I'd love to hear about other Father's Day traditions- serious or silly! Please feel free to share in the comments section.
