My Father


  1. When I was 4 years old: My daddy can do ANYTHING.
  2. 5 years old: My daddy knows a whole lot.
  3. 6 years old: my dad is smarter than your dad.
  4. 8 years old: my dad doesn't exactly know everything
  5. 10 years old: in the olden days when my dad grew up, things were different.
  6. 12 years old: oh, well, naturally dad doesn't know anything about that. He is too old to remember his childhood.
  7. 14 years old: Don't pay any attention to my dad. He is so old-fashioned!
  8. 21 years old: Him? My Lord, he's hopelessly out of date.
  9. 25 years old: Dad knows a little bit about it, but then he should, because he has been around so long.
  10. 30 years old: maybe we should ask dad what he thinks. After all, he's had a lot of experience.
  11. 35 years old: I'm not doing a single thing until I talk to dad.
  12. 40 years old: I wander how dad would have handled it. He was so wise and had a world of experience.
  13. 50 years old: I'd give anything if dad were here now so I could talk this over with him. Too bad I didn't appreciate how smart he was. I could have learned a lot from him.

A dad is a person who is loving and kind, and often he knows what you have on your mind. He's someone who listens, suggests and defends. A dad can be one of your best friends. He's proud of your triumphs, but when things go wrong, a dad can be patient and helpful and strong. In all that you do, a dad's love plays a part. There's always a place for him deep in your heart. And each year that passes, you're even more glad, more grateful and proud just to call him your dad.
