What My Father Means To Me

The National Center for Fathering conducts Father of the Year Essay Contests in partnership with local schools and sponsoring organizations. In 2005, eight contests were held and altogether, over 100,000 school children submitted essays on the topic, "What my Father Means to Me." Below is a sampling of essays from past contests:

"My dad is the best dad ever. I would kiss a pig for him." - 1st grader

"My dad is a Frito-Lay man. That is an important job because Frito-Lay means chips, which is food. That is so important because you could not live without food." - 1st grader

"The dad in my life isn't really my dad. He's my Grandpa. But he's been like a dad to me since before I was born. . . .I hope that as I get older Grandpa will teach me all the stuff he knows about wood, and first-aid, and everything else he knows about. My Grandpa isn't my Father, but I wouldn't trade him for all the dads in the world." - 3rd grader

"Sometimes as a joke I'll put my stinky socks in his briefcase, so at work the next day he will think of me! He's always at the concerts and plays that I'm in, even though he lives about an hour away." - 4th grader

"…You know what else my dad does? He braids my hair. I'm the only girl I know whose dad braids her hair. I think that's a perfect dad. He already is the world's greatest dad to me. I just wanted everyone to know that." - 5th grader

"One time I had an assembly and I was a soloist and my dad was in the first row and after my song I smiled at my dad and my dad smiled back and started crying. That was the best thing I ever saw." - 6th grader

When my wife called a friend on our touch-tone phone, the line was busy. She tried several more times, but without success. Watching her, I asked why she wasn't using the redial button.

"Honey," she answered, "I need the exercise."

~~~~~~~ TRIVIA:

If you’re going to do a crime, don’t leave behind a mug shot.

That’s the lesson two 17-year-old German girls learned when they robbed a 15-year-old of her shoes, money and cell phone. They left behind an old mobile phone -- forgetting that the phone contained their own photos “striking smiley poses, which police published online,” according to a June 28 Reuters story.

The two turned themselves in after their pictures appeared on the evening news and their families were showered with calls from friends and neighbors who recognized them.
