Father's Day is coming up on Sunday, and it seems that I'm a bit behind in letting my family know what I want them to do for me this year.

As I look around the internet, I see lots of places that are advertising gifts for dads. One site said that watches, cuff links and beer mugs would be the perfect gifts. Another touted sports-themed barbecue utensils, while another said that personal grooming items are the must have gifts for dad.

None of these things really rattle my chains.

What would I like from my family for Father's Day?

To have my kids pick up after themselves.

Pretty simple, just pick up after themselves. I don't know about your kids, but I've come to believe that my children think that they will be struck with the Plagues of Egypt if they stop and clean up a mess that they made. Or that they will be visited by the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse if they pick up a toy here and there.

There, I've given them a no-cost option that would make me totally happy when June 15 rolls around.

If that's not possible, I'll take the "Seattle Seahawks Road to XLVIII" DVD that came out recently. That or bacon in any form.

A dad has to have a back up plan if the pick up plan doesn't work out.
