What are you getting your dad for Fathers Day Sunday? Growing up Fathers Day really didn't mean a lot to me only because my dad passed away at the young age of 23. I was only 2 at the time and really didn't get to know him. So while others honored that day, I never really did. But since Natasha (my daughter) came into my life back on Dec. 23, 2005 (her 17th birthday), the holiday now has a new meaning for me. I'm so thankful to be a dad.

What are you getting your dad this Sunday?

Damn, looks like you guys are all pissed off at your dads and not going to get him anything special, or noting at all...

My Dad passed away April 3rd 1984. But I will be buying flowers to put on his head stone.

My dad has been gone for 40 years and I haven't been to his gravesite maybe half dozen times. He isn't there....he's in my heart.

My ex-husband remarried and had 2 kids and pretty much forgot about the two we had. My late husband was more of a dad than he was. I use to remind my girls to get him a Father's Day card or a birthday card then one day I stopped it. If he can't stay in touch with his daughters then it's his loss.

It ended up like a "Mexican standoff"....they'd say..."well he doesn't write us" and he'd say..."well they don't write me"....and I just wanted to bang their heads together. One hasn't seen him for probably 10 years and the other saw him 3 years ago. My oldest has written him off and the bottom line is....they both feel their step-dad, my late husband was their dad.

My Dad passed away in 1991......I think of him everyday. My Ex-Hubby isn't in the picture, so I don't have to worry about buying a DEAD BEAT PARENT Gift to be from my daughter....Thank God, It would kill me to spend my hard earned money on a gift for him considering he has NEVER bought his Daughter anything!

Modern trends ease a difficult decision as my dad is a spry 87 YO and has pretty much everything, so a gift card from Lowes is the ticket.

My father passed away the day after my 21st birthday. He got lots or presents on Father's Day with 8 kids :) We still miss him. I have three daughters. The oldest's father passed away in October, last year. The younger ones will not be giving their father or paternal grandfather a card, even. Neither of them has acknowledged the girls in 8 years. Assholes, there -- like father, like son, so it's not surprising.

Is it me or is this blog less about dad and more about bitching about exhusbands?

My Father didn't pay much attention to us as a kids, even when I lived with him. But we always got him something, despite the fact because he didn't pay child support to often. After my son was born I said to hell with him, I couldn't afford to get him anything and He pretty much ignored my son (his loss) so I have talked to him just a handful of times in the past 20 years and I dont go out of my way to try to change that. As I told him after years of trying, the road and telephone lines go both ways and i don't drive!

Since I have had kids I only get my dad a card...he gets upset with me if I buy him anything and the money could have been used on the girls...this is why they are spoiled...LOL
