A Dad can be the first guy that is involved in a girl’s life, making sure she gets the Barbie doll that she wanted or making sure that she has someone to watch cartoons with.

Dads are not the type to be emotional, so they are often left out on how you are feeling.

Here are 10 things I want my dad to know.

Thank you

When I was little, you were the only one that I wanted to hang out with, and I was definitely a “daddy’s girl.”

You were the one to make sure that I had toys to play with and were the one I went to the daddy-daughter dances with, even if you weren’t the type to enjoy school functions like that.

I just want to say thank you for everything that you do and for everything you have provided me. I will always be grateful.

You are funny 

Anytime we go anywhere, you always make sure to make up songs about everything and anything just to make me laugh.

You have a good sense of humor, one that I wish I would have gotten from you.

The songs will always stick with me, and when I get older I hope I can be the kind of parent you are.

I actually enjoy spending time with you 

I know sometimes I’m rude and I blow you off, but no matter what age I am, I will always need my dad.

It doesn’t matter what we do, even if it’s working at the store.

I don’t mind because I just want to spend time with you.

I have learned a lot from you  

Sometimes when we are angry we say things that we don’t mean and words come out a bit harsh. It happens in every relationship.

Even though it may hurt, you always seem to give me a much-needed reality check.  You show me that I’m really not that person and that I can do better.

I have learned so much from you, including the greatest life lesson of them all: Responsibility and trust are earned, not just given.

So, thank you, again.

My dance moves come from you 

When the music comes on, you always know how to bust a move and get the party started.

You have millions of dances that happen randomly and they are hilarious. The funniest part of it all is that you never seem to remember how to repeat it, so it’s something new everyday.

Keep the party going, you animal.

I’m not sorry for stealing your food 

For all the times I stole your food, I’m not sorry.

You are the one who introduced me to basically all the food that I eat, so when I eat your food I’m just trying to survive.

You have good taste in entertainment 

You have good taste in music and movies. In fact, you’re the person who introduced me to one of my favorite movies, “Forrest Gump.”

 I can remember when I was little that you and I used to listen to Flyleaf, which I still listen to today all because of you.

You’re a good driver 

I hope I inherit your driving skills because, with my luck, I’m gonna need it.

You seem to know what you are doing and you make it look easy. As for mom, I can’t say the same.

My life wouldn’t be the same without you

I don’t know where I’d be if I didn’t have you in my life. You have encouraged me to do better and made sure I had someone there to keep me in check.

Even though our relationship through the years has been rocky, I still am that little girl with the curly hair that you used to love.

I don’t know where I’d be today if I didn’t have a dad like you that loves me unconditionally and will tolerate me, even when I can’t tolerate myself.

I love you 

I love you, Dad, and I want you to know that. You have gone above and beyond to make life easier, even though it sometimes backfires.

Thank you for everything you do. I appreciate  it.
