Lately, I’ve been the one asking the girls questions, too.
For more than a month, the girls and I have played along with a service called Q4KIDZ, from the organization Parents Together. Sign up, and you get daily questions by email or text to ask your kids.
It went so well last time, it’s now a monthly feature.
Here’s what the kids had to say to a few prompts in July. Apologies that the girls’ sketches don’t accompany their stellar answers this time. Two are off on a camping trip, and it’s an awful lot of pressure to put on the one who stayed behind.
When the girls ask questions … well, that makes up my Friday Go Ask Daddy posts.
But what if dad asks the questions? I’ve done just that. I signed up for Q4KIDZ from Parents Together, so technically, they’re questions I’ve been given to give my girls. But that’s cool. These questions have started some intriguing conversations.
Here’s what I asked, and what they answered.
Most responses were clever and endearing. Most centered on food. (Where did they get that?) Only one was disturbing. You’ll see the one. (It’s not the first one with bad words in it.) It just tells me I have more daddying to do, that’s all.
