Megow Kids Q&A- Father's Day 2017



Certain days can be so awkward as a single parent. Today is one of them. With little kids, it's normally the opposite parent that helps the kids do all of the activities. Moms help the kids with fathers day stuff/ Dads help with mothers day stuff. Father's/Mother's day as a single parent of young kids is basically like going to a restaurant, ordering the "chef's surprise", going to the kitchen, thinking of the dish, preparing the dish, then handing it to your server, sprinting back to your seat, acting totally surprised when the dish is placed on your table, and then finally going back to the kitchen to clean up whatever mess was made in the creation of the dish. Hahahaha. Honestly, I would just skip the day, but I feel like my kids want to be able to think and reflect. Also, I think it's important to give them the chance to show people they love them. So I guess that applies to me too.

So I tried to stay as out of it as I could (to let them keep it surprise). Really, Stevie was kind of the big helper with this one. She actually already wrote me the sweetest letter a few days ago (see below).

So sweet :D


When I asked the kids if they would like to do anything for father's day (Again, it feels so awkward. Kinda like throwing your own surprise birthday party. hahaha). Anyways, she suggested I make some little sheets with questions they can answer. So that's just what we did. Stevie also helped explain it to them and them wrote in Olive's answers for her. It was so sweet.

So anyways, here's the Megow Father's Day sheets from this year. I will type out what they wrote under each picture. They are still learning to write and spell :) However, it's fun to compare how they write things and what they actually mean. I just think little kid writing is the cutest thing. For example: "Poopcorn" for "popcorn":D
