    my dad is downright goofy. he’ll start the morning singing made up songs/tunes. while it bothered me as a child (seriously, who is that giddy in the morning?), its a quirk i look forward to when i visit my parent’s now.

  2. My dad is quite possibly the friendliest and funniest guy I know. He has this ability to make strangers into friends the first time he meets them. He is also a certified clown, which always makes for fun times!

    What I love most about my dad is that he makes a consistent effort to teach me and my sisters what’s most important in life: a balance of dedication to family and friends, hard work doing something you love, giving back to causes that are special to you, and time for relaxation and fun will give you a life that you can look back on with pride.

  4. Kristen T.


    My dad is one of the most caring people I know. Even when he is steaming mad at you, if you need something he will always be there to help. And that doesn’t just apply to his children, it applies to all family and friends.

  5. my pops is always looking for ways to create memories. ever since i was a kid he would take me and my mom to concerts, baseball games, and pretty much any fun experience that would be a memorable moment in our lives. i’m looking forward to doing the same with my son (due this fall) and our family.

  6. My favorite thing about my Dad is how open he is to new things and the amount of non-judgemental curiosity with which he approached everything from books, to Greenday CDs to boyfriends that I brought into our house.

  7. Lauren


    No matter what the situation, my dad will always make us laugh. If we are ever going through something tough, he can get us to crack a smile and feel better about it.

  8. my favorite thing about my dad is he always manages to make me laugh.

  9. Christine


    My favorite thing about my dad is that he always puts his family first. He is not one to wear his heart on his sleeve, but he is a big softie inside. And he is an amazing handyman.

  10. My Dad. The guy that will always believe in me. When he gives me a squeeze and says “tough it out tiger” I instantly know I am not on the journey alone. He gives me the courage to keep going – just like he has always done.

  11. Andi C.


    My dad has worked extremely hard in his life to provide for his family. It is something I really admire about him.

  12. Elisbeth


    What I love most about my husband as a dad is the obvious joy he takes in everything he does for our baby son and the times they share. I couldn’t have hoped for or imagined a better dad – and I’ve got a big imagination!

  13. Trish K


    My dad was super supportive – he came to every recital, sports game, school event, everything, all while working 6 days a week (which I only realized as an adult.)

  14. My dad is hilarious. – I love his sense of humor. He also loves to cook. We’ve taken several cooking classes together and we laugh so hard during them as we try hard to be the best in class. I’ve learned not to take life too seriously from him, and to look for the adventure in every situation.

  15. Mary Frances


    My dad is uber-helpful. He’s always there for oil changes, anything involving a saw, and general heavy-lifting. He’s always offering suggestions and trying to make sure all of his kids stay on the straight and narrow.

  16. anne elliott


    I love my dad because he is steadfast. If i call him in a time of need (i.e. i’m stranded in my car and hour away or can’t reach a lightbulb in my house), he’ll drop everything and come to see me.

    He may make me crazy, but there’s a lot to love about him.

  17. My dad is so genuinely funny. He is witty and sharp and such a tech-head. Even though he has been retired for twenty years, he teaches part-time at a college and always manages to have the newest, most amazing gadgets before any of us. My daughters (3 and 6) think he is the silliest person on the planet and I love that.

  18. This one is easy. My dad is my BIGGEST fan. I will always remember running track in high school. And when I rounded the last curve, heading to the finish line there were TONS of people cheering in the crowds. But every single time, I would only hear my dad’s voice above everyone else…cheering me on. And he still does to this day.

    I’d like to enter my son’s Dad. At age 10 Jeff started taking our son Matt on Father Son Trips, usually including baseball and recently concerts. This was/is a time to talk about who you are, who you are becoming. What’s going on in your life today, and what you want to do with your life. This was my favorite thing Jeff ever did for our son, that and love me. Showing our love that we love and still love each other.

  20. My dad is the most patient person I know. With a house full of girls, that definitely came in handy. He is a great listener, and always willing to offer meaningful advice. Above all that, he makes a mean martini!!

  21. My dad can make anyone laugh – even when someone is most upset – pouting – or sad…he takes every moment to make someone smile.

  22. Caitlin


    I really appreciate that my dad is almost very literally there any time I need him. Anything from a car question to advice on buying something, he can be on the phone in a second with a great solution. Or, if need be, he’ll drop what he’s doing and drive out to help me with whatever is needed. What a great dad =)

  23. Denise


    My father is the hardest-working man I have ever met. At the age of 74 he is still up at 5am every morning to provide for the family. He is unselfish with his time and his talents and I’m a lucky girl to have him as my “daddy”

  24. Carolyn


    My dad has an impeccable judge of character. No matter how frustrating it is, he is always right about a person and he figures it out in about 2 minutes.

  25. What a heartfelt subject and I could write a report on how lucky I am to have my dad for a dad! He is a honest, genuine person thorough-n-thorough. He is the person who will look at a stranger and say hi and wish them a good day to everyone he passes no matter who they are. He gives up his seat in the subway for anyone (even though he is the elder 😉 and will always make sure he gives others room on the sidewalk for them to pass. He has such manners and a kindness to others that seems to be missing in this busy, hurried, rude world. It humbles me on how nice and kind he is. Thanks for having this so I could really THINK about my dad…even if I don’t win I’m happy to share..and read about everyone else’s awesome dads!

  26. Broni Slavens


    My Dad has never met a stranger and would do anything to help anyone – he’s the guy who always stops to pick up whatever crap has blown or fallen onto the road that the rest of us drive around:)

  27. My favorite thing about my dad is his humility.

  28. Katie Contests


    I love that my dad is such a softie. To others, he’s all business, with a crusty & crunchy outside. With his girls he’s a totally different man, affectionate and caring 🙂

  29. My favorite thing about my dad is that he has overcome SO much and has inspired me throughout my entire life. He is always there for me and would drop anything in heartbeat if I needed him. Would love to be able to give him an amazing present this Father’s Day! 🙂

  30. what i love about my dad is how sentimental he is. he and my mom are moving out of my childhood home and as i was cleaning out some boxes, i found every single drawing i’d made him and report card i’d gotten. it meant a lot to know he cared enough to keep everything, even after all these years!

  31. Niki L.


    The one of my favorite things about my dad is his love of good food and cooking. He used to make me the most creative cupcakes to share with my classes when I was in elementary school. Nowadays, cooking is a wonderful hobby to share with him. We can spend hours discussing cooking methods or epic meals we’ve eaten. Not everyone in our family can relate, but it’s a topic for us that never gets old!

  32. My dad is the most learned person I know; he is full of information and interpretations.

  33. What I love about my dad is that he is always there to save the day. He runs his own 24/7 business and still makes time to check up a few times a week to see if I ‘need anything’. From refinishing craigslist finds, helping me move from place to place, and even fishing my wedding ring out of a hole the floorboards once (Macgyver style, with a camera, gum and a hanger!), he’s just always there for me when I need him. I don’t know what I would do without him in my life.

  34. My Dad always knows when I need a hug.

  35. Kat Campbell


    My husband is the best dad to our three daughters. He’s tough, but wrapped around their pretty little fingers. He works hard to take are of them, but when he’s home he loves to cook for them. They love his hamburgers on the grill! Too bad his grill died last weekend, we were looking forward to a summer of bbqing :-/

  36. Et Pruitt


    The favorite thing about the father in my life is that he is always willing to listen to what I have going on and offer me great advice.

  37. My dad is a renaissance man who can do anything and it’s all tempered with silly, goofy jokes and puns. The best combination!

  38. Well first, our last name is Klein so how perfect would the Klein’s tool bag be?!?! But really, my dad is an amazing man. For the last 5 years I have been having surgeries and medical procedures. My dad was never a man who understood pain but since I blew my knee out in March of 2008, and then developed a PAINFUL nerve condition called Complex Regional Pain Syndrom, he has been by my side supporting me through it all. He even came to a few conferences I spoke at about my condition and researched it to find out exactly what I was going through. My dad truly is an amazing man. He has been there for me my whole life, but for the last five years he has supported me emotionally and financially while I deal with everything my condition brings. Yesterday for instance, I had to have a procedure done and he was the first person to call me and check on how I was doing after it was done. And then he was the one who brought me my dinner while I was still in bed. He has this HILARIOUS laugh he does when he thinks something is really funny, and that in turn makes everyone else laugh with him. My dad never used to say “I love you” to us often, but over the last few years he has said it SO many times, especially when I needed to hear it the most. A grill or a bag is no where near enough to show him how much I love him and appreciate him, but its definitely a start. I feel like I am the luckiest girl in the world to have a Dad like him!

  39. A few things I loved about my father: his penchant for puns (humor), his ability to stop what he was doing and take time to enjoy the endeavors of others, and lastly, his overall creativity (especially the pen & ink, watercolor pieces)! Thanks!

  40. Christy


    my dad is superman

  41. What I love most about my dad is that he is constantly reminding me the importance of family & good friends and how to slow down and enjoy the small moments in life!

  42. Woohoo! i’d love to give my pops a grill!

  43. Danielle


    What I love most about my dad is how supportive he is of me and my sister. He is always there when we need advice and motivation. I love that he and my mom have been married for 35 years and they still have fun together and they make fun of each other. I love that other people tell me that my dad is their role model of what it is to be a great father. He’s the best!!!

  44. Christin


    My Dad is the most inspiring person I know. He completely changed the direction of our family for generations to come by desiring to break cycles that repressed possibility. And he does it all with amazing humor, devotion to his entire family and complete ignorance to his accomplishments.

  45. Virginia


    I love that even though I’m an adult now, my dad still always checks in to make sure that I’m doing ok and don’t need anything. To him, I’ll always be his little girl.

  46. My dad can make anyone smile! I appreciate everything he does for our family. Love you, Dad!

  49. Andrea


    My favorite thing about my dad is that he can fix ANYTHING! I don’t know how he became so handy in life, but if I had half his fix-it skills I probably wouldn’t be coming to him still as an adult!
