Whenever my Dad visited us, he had the good fortune of being unemployed. So he had a lot of time on his hands. He spent a fair amount of time with me at the beach. My mother did not have this opportunity, as she was working full time and often over time to pay the bills. My father tried to be there for some of the good times, but not for things like homework or housework. Of course I loved him more than my mom because he was the fun guy and my mother seemed like the police.
Reflecting on it now it was really quite unfair how their responsibilities were divided up. It was the good cop/bad cop scenerio. My father did not have to do the daily things that parents do like making sure their kids go to school, arrive on time, come home safely, do their homework, take a bath etc. He was there to tempt me with card games on school nights (black jack and poker no less), movies till late in the night, singing and walking in the rain. It was great, but when I got sick a few days and in trouble because I was behind in my homework Dad was gone. Leaving my mother with the mess he had created.
