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.
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?
