Happy Father's Day

I know that I have posted this picture several times before, but I love it, it is my favorite picture of Aaron and the kidlets.

I thought that for Father's day I would ask the kidlets the same questions about Aaron that I ask them a few days ago about me. Again, Piper's responses are in yellow and Teague's are in orange.

What is something dad always says to you?
"You don't love me!"
"I love you!

What makes dad happy?
"Clean house"
"When I play with him."

What makes dad sad?
"When his kids aren't with him."
"When I be bad to Momma."

How does dad make you laugh?
"Mostly everything."
"He tickles me."

What was dad like as a child?
"He was the only boy."

How old is your dad?
"34, that's an old man!"
"I don't know, really, I don't know."
*He is 34.

How tall is your dad?
"Probably six foot one something."
"Maybe like 40 inches."
*He's six foot.

What is his favorite thing to do?
"Spend time with his children."
"Play with me."
*I like how Piper said Children...she was trying to be proper.

What does your dad do when your not around?
"Do his homework."
"I don't know."

If your dad becomes famous, what will it be for?
"Probably of his art."
"To kill bad dragons."

What is your dad really good at?

What is your dad not very good at?
"Um, let's see....lying, cause he always says a funny lie."
"Well he's not very good at....well, that's too hard, I don't know."

What does your dad do for his job?
"He works on Comcuters."

What is your dads favorite food?
"Probably Panda Express."
"Is it steak?"
*It's sushi.

What makes you proud of your dad?
"Cause he's the one who goes to school and makes lots of money."
"That his dad and my dad worked on the sprinklers."
*We wish he made lots of money, that's why he goes to school.

If your dad were a cartoon character, who would he be?
"Elmo, because he is really good at acting out Elmo, he kinda makes fun of him."

What do you and you dad do together?
"We always laugh so we can't even breathe."

How are you and your dad the same?
"Our mouth. And our funniness."
"Cause we both have the same shoes and we both have whips, because I have one that just has one and daddy has one that has two to whack two people at the same time."
*I don't know about any whips.

How are you and your dad different?
"My dad is much more funnier than me."
"Cause we both don't have the same eyes."

How do you know your dad loves you?
"Because he always spends time with me when he's not at school or work."
"Because sometimes , I mean a lot of the time, I mean most of the time I be good for him."

And...since it is Father's day, I wanted to give a shout out to my dad and share my favorite story. It is funny that this is one of my favorite, because there are so many, but this one has always stuck out in my mind. And, I would post a picture, but remember what I said about me being really unorganized with pictures? So, I will just link you to this family photo.

So anyway, I was about 6 or 7 and we were on our annual family vacation, I can't remember where - I am sure my brother Jordan remembers - probably southern Utah somewhere. I was at that age when collecting rocks was the most awesome thing to do and I had a square hot chocolate can full of them. I was wandering around while we were hiking trying to find the coolest rocks, and I did find some cool ones. At the end of the day I had a bunch that I was VERY proud of...especially one, it was little and PERFECTLY round. I went up to my dad and said, "Dad, look at this perfectly round rock!" He looked at me, smiled and said, "That ain't no rock! That's rabbit shit!" Needless to say I dropped that rock so fast and started freaking out and also needless to say, I didn't hear the end of it from my four brothers. I HAD HELD RABBIT SHIT! Proudly.

I love this photo too! Thanks for posting it again. Cute responses from the kids. You should consider asking the same questions again when they are teenagers!

Great picture. I need to "interview" my children with those questions. Maybe a future post...
