Getting to Know You

Last Wednesday Katie's Kindergarten class invited their dads for "Donuts with Dad." The daddies joined their little ones for a "D" shaped donut and some special one-on-one time with their kiddo. One of the things the dads brought home was a "Daddy Facts" sheet that the kids did. Their teachers asked them the question and wrote down the answer. I thought you might like to get to know WM a little better...via our 6 year old daughter.

She was doing pretty his name correct (thankfully, that would bad if she didn't know her dad's name!), she got his age right (I'm sure he appreciates me telling his age-but if you've ever met WM, you know he doesn't look 46).
His favorite food and and raisins. That's great...but we're not sure where she came up with this. Especially the raisins??
Cooking...macaroni? Yeah, he can do that, but really WM's a pretty good cook.
The one that cracked us up the most was his favorite thing to do is "do funny stuff to my mom." Hopefully she's not talking about 'funny' stuff.
And what he says to her most? "No?" I guess that's better than what the kid next to her said his dad says most to him, which was "I don't care."

(She did better with his questions than she did when she was in pre-school and was asked questions about me--she said I was 17 years old and weighed 61 pounds and did commercials).

Katie and WM on their way to the 50's Dance at Katie's school.

WM and Katie have a very special relationship. The daddy/daughter relationship that you read about. From the minute she was born she was wrapped around his finger. It's really quite special. They even have their own special song (The Promise by When in Rome).

Happy Monday--it's SPRING BREAK!!! Yeah!!!

This is so sweet! I love it! I can't wait for these types of answers from my daddy's girl.

And the dances and doughnuts and tea parties and dancing on the feet in the living room. :o) This is really such a sweet post!

LOL! I love that she told the teacher her daddy likes BEER! Haha!

When I taught kdg. and first grades I loved to do these types of thin gs with the kids. The parents got a kick out of them (or were really embarrassed!)

A father/daughter relationship is very special.
