You capitalize "Dad" if dad is used as a proper noun, "Dad, are we going to the ballgame?" However, dad is lowercase when used as a simple noun or as an example of dads in general, as in "My dad and I are going to the ballgame." The same is true of "Mom is the greatest!" or "her mom bakes cakes."

Yes. When you use dad as a proper noun (or the substitute for his actual name), capitalize it: "Where is Dad?" This is the same as you might write, "Where is Bill?"

It should be: My mom and dad call me A ndrea.
