10 Questions About Dad

Cartoon Dad

When I posted the kids answers to these questions about me, Harmzie left a comment noting that she thought it would be great to turn these questions around to be about dad to celebrate father’s day. Well in the southern hemisphere, Father’s Day is this coming Sunday and I thought that I would take her lead and do just that. As with last time I have written the responses in age order 10, 8, 5 and 3 and I have included my answers as well. The baby just goo’s every time we talk to him, so he wasn’t included.
Mr I chose not to read this before publication, so it will interesting to see his response!

    I’ve just read it to my hubby and two boys and we had a really good giggle! I didn’t realise Mr I was “gangster”! Too funny!

    I just asked groover the same questions and his answer to “what makes you different to Daddy?” – “his bald and I have hair!” then an explosion of laughter!

    A great start to the morning … Thanks! Will be interesting to see what Mr I thinks!

  2. Mr Infrastructure says

    Mr I’s right of reply to question #3…..yes, i do watch a fair bit of TV (sport), but i do get thru a mountain of ironing while in the act. Also, as my good friend Jack once said to me “Mr I, sport on TV is not TV”

    They had some excellent & wonderful answers. They do come up with some surprises, don’t they?

    Thanks for the luvin, but I have to come clean and point out that it wasn’t MY idea, I was just echoing Nicki’s comment above mine. That said, Max’s birthday is coming up in September and this will be and excellent “tribute” to dad (at least I hope it turns out that way!) I’m totally using it! ;-)
