Could This Be True?
I went for a routine medical examination during the week, and a cute girl of about six years who must have disturbed her mother for the 100th time that day suddenly popped this question: ” What is the difference between a father and a dad?”
Almost everyone close to where they were focused out of interest and waited to hear her mother’s response.
Possibly unprepared, the mother said, “A father is like your father, who walked out on us when you were born, and a dad is like Chris, who takes care of you.”
Could this be true?
The answer sounds so crazy, but I didn’t think anything of it until my youngest child, Clinton called on WhatsApp and popped out a similar question.
” Mummy, do you know the difference between a daddy and a father?”
Sincerely, I also did not know, but African mothers have a way; while asking him other questions, I was looking it up on Google.
And I quoted exactly from Google”A dad gives guidance to his children or family on top of supplying them with the necessities in life. A father is someone who contributes to the physical creation of a child without any responsibility.
Was I shocked when he shouted out of excitement, ” Mummy, that is Google!”
Trust an African mother; I riggled out of the embarrassment. Almost children in this generation are extraordinarily gifted.
Father’s or Daddy’s Day is truly a special day to appreciate the lovely ones who toiled day and night for their children’s survival and success.
What more can we say except to say a mega thank you for caring for your children, being their friends, not their abusers and being the best husbands.
Since it’s father’s day, the letter could mean much to each individual as every child appreciates the stern but loving figure in the home.
Thank you F – For being so friendly, A- Accommodating your children’s tantrums, T- Thanks for being their teacher, H- The children appreciate your financial and other help, E- Thanks for the encouragement and R -Reassuring them to chin up.
Currently, Father’s Day can be found in over 111 countries around the world, and this year’s celebration is today, June 19, in the UK, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
It is also celebrated on the third Sunday of June. Countries like Argentina, France, Greece, India, Ireland, Mexico, Pakistan, Singapore, South Africa, and Venezuela also observe it.
Father’s Day falls on different dates depending on each country’s tradition.
See you next week
