“What does it mean to be a Father?”

Father's Day in Lake County

Happy Father’s Day! I’m sure you’ve pondered the deeper ramifications of what it actually means to be a father, but at the end of the day, it’s really quite simple.

Father's day

We posed the question, “What does it mean to be a Father?” to some of the kids of Little Lake County and here’s what they had to say:

From Little K, 3-year old daughter of Krystal:

Squish spiders and eat big red chips (Doritos.)

From Loralie’s 5-year old son:

It means you’re a boy parent and  you’re important.

and from her 3-year old daughter:

You have to study hard to be a grown-up. A father is a boy grown-up. He has to take care of his children.

From Cecilia, 5-year old daughter of Holly:

It means to take care of you, give hugs and kisses, and get you to bed. And they build things for you.

From G, 3-year old son on Rosemary:

It means to play games, bicycles, blankets, and forts. And play the iPad.

and from her 1-year old son R:

Chicken dinner…. NO!

From Molly, 3-year old daughter of Stephanie:

My Bernie plays in my playroom with me, plays with my puzzles and makes peanut butter jelly.

and from Stephanie’s 2-year old daughter, Lily:

AHHHHHHHHHHHH! (nothing further)

From Melissa’s 9-year old:

Go to work and take care of the kids, get married. Be able to use the grill.

her 7-year old agreed and her 3-year old said:

A fun daddy!

How would your children answer this question?

When Loralie isn’t out exploring with her two pint-sized adventurers you’ll often find her in front of her computer plotting to take over the world (or at least Lake County.) She appreciates good friends, good food, expensive shoes and parents who make two lanes in the drop-off/pick-up line at school. Her spirit animal is The Hobbit. She invites you to join her on her quest for unique distractions, diversions and deliciousness in this county we call home.
