Last year on Fathers Day I asked my 3 older boys some interview questions about their dad. It was interesting to see the things they noticed, the things they loved, the things he could improve on and the things he liked to do. I thought I would see if much had changed over the past year and interviewed the boys again with the same questions. This year I was able to add the 3 year old as his articulation is one thing that has certainly developed over the past 12 months.
What makes your dad a great dad?
12 yr old: I just love him. Once a year he takes me to the wrestling. He takes me to footy matches. I’m sure there is more but my brain has worked too hard today 2011: He buys us stuff from Seven Eleven and he hangs out with us a lot
10 year old: he buys stuff for me and plays with me and spends a lot of time with me (2011:He gives us Slurpees and is renovating our house and takes holidays with us and spends lots of time playing with us)
9 year old: he takes me to places. He’s nice. He’s funny. He looks after us (2011: He’s good at looking after us)
3 year old: cause he is
What do you love to do with your dad?
12 year old: Going to the chicken shop for chicken and chips (2011: Play footy and cricket with him and having talks)
10 year old: kick the footy, play cricket, go swimming, watches footy with me. He does heaps more I just can’t remember (2011: Play footy with us, take us to the local footy and swim in the pool with us)
9 year old: kick a footy, take us to the footy, I love watching Amazing Race with him, him watching me play footy (8 yr old: Go to the local footy, play footy, golf and ten pin bowling)
3 year old: play cricket, running, footy, cars and hockey
What could your dad improve on?
12 year old: get less angry with us. That’s about it really (2011: Ummm…lets see…I don’t really want to answer that…umm…nope there’s actually nothing)
10 year old: growling at me without knowing who’s fault it was (2011: Nothing…really)
9 year old: I don’t know (2011: I don’t know)
3 year old: I don’t know
Do you know your dads favourite TV show?
12 yr old: footy (2011: the footy)
10 year old: his movie he is making with his friends (2011: Entourage)
9 year old: Amazing Race (2011: Amazing Race and Survivor)
3 year old: Toy Story
What is dads favourite food?
12 year old: KFC (2011: Chicken Parmigana)
10 year old: tacos (2011: Tacos)
9 year old: Salt and vinegar chips (2011: Beer, lollies, hot jam donuts)
3 year old: Nutri grain
What’s something funny your dad does?
12 year old: when dad wrestles us, especially Louie (2011: When the two of us blame mum for our farts)
10 year old: when Tigers play bad he sometimes goes off his head a bit which is pretty funny (2011: When he tries to sing)
9 year old: Tells us funny stories, scares me (2011: When he creeps up and scares me)
3 year old: he laughs when I play running
So not a lot has changed it seems. He still likes footy and is great at playing sports with them. He likes Tacos and the Amazing Race. Apparently he likes Nutri Grain although I myself have never seen him eat a bowl of it. He possibly is not buying as many Slurpees and a couple of children may have got in trouble a little more this past year! But on the whole they know they have the best dad ever.
What makes your kids dad great? Or what is special about your own dad?
