What I like about my dad is that he has always been there for me. He taught me how to float. When my mom has a cough he reads me bedtime stories. He cooks me dinner. He picks the best flavors of ice cream and cake. He tells me Iím his favorite daughter. That is of course, Iím his only daughter. Even if he had more daughters, I would still be his favorite. We some times camp out in the living room. Once he took me on the roof. Once he let me play in the fountain when it was raining. He lets me watch tv a lot and it is usually cartoons. I love my dad and want to grow old together.
