Great answers, GREAT dad

This post. Loving it. My favorites?

References to funny voices--funny thing is that they begged me NOT to do them when they were little. Go figure.

"How am I supposed to know what he's doing when I'm not around?"

Wile E. Coyote? I guess the explanation is better than "he never achieves his goal but still keeps trying, even if he is blown up by ACME products over and over again. And then the anvil falls on his head."

"We are both awesome." Yes, we are, Thing 2.

And yes, I do love going anywhere, as long as we're all together.

I love you all!

My favorite was I am a girl he is a man. And for Maxim, and his humility, is We are both awesome. Very funny because I laughed out loud.

Emily Foley said...

That was so cute! Your kids have good answers! I read it backwards for a while thinking Maxim was in pink and Kate was in blue so I was so confused when it said "I'm a girl and he's a boy." Hilarious. Also, I think he must be a VERY good dad.

That's funny, Em. Because I would've switched it to put Kate (oldest) first and Max (youngest) second, but I copied your post and used your colors (just took out Noah's green line in the middle). :P
