Birthday Time Capsule Questions

We survived the birthday dash – two birthdays two weeks apart. We are now the proud owners parents of a six and ten year old. So hard to believe I’ve been called Dad for 10 years. Seems so short a time ago I was a new dad carrying a screaming infant trying to figure out why he was screaming. Now I’ve got a screaming 10 year old and I’m still trying to figure out why he’s screaming.

Just kidding. He doesn’t scream any more. It’s more like a growl. Sometimes it sounds like a moo. 

Last year on each of the boys’ birthdays I asked them these 20 questions. This year I just asked them at the same time. Some of their answers remained the same, some are different. Some didn’t surprise me, some did. You can read last year’s responses by Crash and/or last year’s responses by Bang.

  1. “I never have dreams. I just lay down like I’m dead.” Ah, the sleep of the innocent (!) Thank you for sharing your delightful children with us. And happy 10th Anniversary of Fatherhood. Here’s to many more screamingly delicious years to come!

  2. What a great idea! Each year I write my kids a card that tells what their beautiful nature is like in the present and how that will grow and reflect when they’re grown adults reading it. (I plan to start giving them out at age 21).

    I love your kids answers, it’s just great!

    • Thanks, SuperMommy! Each year I do write a blog post in their honor telling them what they’re doing that I’m proud of and what they’re doing that frustrates me. It’ll be fun to look back in future years. Then there are the questions. I’m always fascinated to which ones have the same answers 🙂 I like your idea too! We’re doing the “Oh The Place You’ll Go” book idea where we get their teachers to write a little message in it every year to give to them at graduation.
