In honor of Mother’s Day last month, I created the #MyMomChallenge, where I asked my kids a bunch of questions and recorded their answers. Since today is Father’s Day (and since Eric at All In A Dad’s Work reminded me by doing his own), I’m doing the same Q&A with my kids for their dad.
And here we go…
1. My dad is _____ years old and weighs _____ pounds.
Little Man: 40; 200
Baby Girl: 5; 4
Little Man: hamburgers; nothing
Baby Girl: pizza for you and me; I don’t know
3. If my dad were a superhero, his name would be ______ and his superpower would be _____.
Little Man: The Human Dad; taking people around the neighborhood
Baby Girl: Spiderman; shooting webs
4. And if my dad were a villain, his name would be ______ and he would use his evil powers to _____.
Little Man: The Hacker; getting on Facebook when his son is playing Minecraft
Baby Girl: Joker; do bad things to superheroes
5. I love it when my dad______.
Little Man: hugs me
Baby Girl: hugs me and kisses me
6. When my dad is driving, he_________.
Little Man: uses one hand
Baby Girl: holds on to the steering wheel and turns it like this (imitates steering)
7. I like it when my dad _______ and I don’t like it when my dad _________.
Little Man: plays video games with me; says “no screens”
Baby Girl: watches TV with me; be’s mean
8. My dad does not like to _______.
Little Man: wipe my hiney
Baby Girl: read me books when he’s working
9. My dad does ________ the best and _________ the worst.
Little Man: buying good watermelons; playing video games (I always beat him)
Baby Girl: cook fish sticks and cheesy tater tots; I don’t know
10. I’m thankful for my dad because ___________.
Little Man: He’s the best
Baby Girl: I love him
Those last two answers, though. All the feels.
Happy Father’s Day to all you dads/father figures out there! And a special Happy Father’s Day to my husband, who sets the bar super high when it comes to his daddy game.
Feel free to join the Q&A! I know Father’s Day is almost over, but don’t let that stop you from recording your kids’ answers. It’ll be nice to have these written down (or blogged) so you can repeat them each year and compare their answers. Even if you’re an adult, your dad will enjoy it. (My kids did a version of this as a Father’s Day card for their dad, and since I forgot to buy a card for my dad, I did the same for him, and he seemed to love it, even though I am 34.) If you do join in, please tag me or add the link to the comment so I can check out your post.
