Dads

Me - Dads, wow! I like my Dad sometimes. Other times, he gets on my nerves. When I like him, he is really nice and fun and gets me things. When I don't like him, he's mean and yells at me and makes me go to my room. My Dad and I don't spend much time together though. Half of the time it's because my sister doesn't let us. The last time I remember going out somewhere with my Dad just for the sake of spending time I was in second grade. I don't remember where we went but I remember getting grilled cheese. At home, he is usually watching TV or on his computer, and when I talk he says "Shh!" Other times when I am with him, and there are other people around, we have a lot of fun and joke around and have fun together. I love my dad.

Mom - When I was little, my dad and I were very close. Before I was born, he had been a professional actor. He was in some movies and in the TV series Mr. Novack and in a pre-Broadway show called There Must Be a Pony. Years later, they made There Must Be a Pony into a TV movie. When I was in 3rd grade, my Dad started doing community theater. I liked to go to rehearsals with him and to as many performances of the show as possible. When I was older, I did some community theater too, but not as much as my Dad. I was in a few shows that my Dad directed and we were in a few shows together as well. We also went around to see a lot of shows at ohter community theaters too. Sometimes, my Mom went. Sometimes, she didn't. I mean there is good community theater, but there is also a lot of bad community theater too. My Mom could only take so much of it so a lot of the time I was the one who ended up going with my Dad. My Dad has the best sense of direction of anyone I know. That is one thing I certainly didn't inherit from him. I have a terrible sense of direction. When I was still living with my parents whenever I needed to go any place I was unfamiliar with my Dad helped me figure out how to get there. Now, my husband helps me find places when I need to. He doesn't have as good a sense of direction as my Dad but it is better than mine. Over all, since I got married and had kids of my own, I haven't been as close to my Dad as I was when I was child. I have actually gotten closer to my Mom as I have gotten older. I guess I can related to her better now that I am a wife and mom too. Of course, I still love my Dad too though, and I still wouldn't have wanted any other Dad.

And that's our view. What's your favorite thing to do with your Dad?
