i am a papa's girl. i remembered my childhood bright with the memories of my father helping me out in the school and teaching me the ways of the farm. and up until i graduated form elementary school, my father was my constant companion. though my mom was always home i didn't get the chance to really spend more time with her the way i did with my father. so i was closer to my papa. but in all fairness to my mom, she did all the best she knew about raising us. so are you closer to mom or dad?

hi bench. i say that's very sweet of your father. and you're one lucky girl to find an armour in your dad. i hope that you have long graduated from that chore, coz when i was high schol i dreaded the week that i was assigned to help in the laundry. it was such a very sweaty task. thanks for sharing that experience of yours. happy lotting!

i wouldnt want to choose one of my parents, i am close to both of them eqally, but there were things that you could only do with your dad and other things onlywith oyour mom, so i am as close to my mum as i am to my dad and vise versa. ~Happy MyLotting~

I'm not close to either of them but if I HAVE TO pick one then it'd be my mother since I've not spoken to her ex husband since I was 17 and intend to keep it that way..

hi ravenlady. i see you had already made up your mind about your father. and i wouldn't ask for more details. we all grew up in different families, sometimes away from our families and there were reasons why we fell anything towards like you strongly do now. well, thank you for sharing. good day!

hi missybear. was it hard for you not to have lived with your dad? i hope you don'tmind me asking. since i was a dad's girl, i think it's pretty hard. maybe if i grew up differently., like apart from him then maybe i would have already adjusted myself to it. how was it with your mom? i mean growing up with her? i never get to talk to my mom about girl stuff. im sure you have great relationshiop with your mom. send my hellos to her. thank you for sharing!
