Interview on Fatherhood

My friend Jason Boyett of the Dadequate Blog interviewed me recently about fatherhood, eye-rolls, and destroying malevolent robots with my bare hands. (Okay, so I made that last one up. I kept waiting for him to ask me about that and he never did.)

Here’s the interview we did: Meet a Dad – Bryan Allain

And after you check that out (or before…it’s up to you), here’s a few questions he didn’t ask me.

Question: Do you let your kids win at games?

Answer: Sometimes. The two reasons I usually do this are 1) if I feel like they need a little confidence boost, or 2) if the game we’re playing is never-ending and I can’t take one more second of it (see card games, war).

Q: What is something you’ve passed on to your kids?

A: I’d like to think I’ve passed along my sense of humor to them because they’re pretty funny. They are constantly coming up with crazy ideas to try and one-up each other with absurdity. They’re like my little comedy sketch writers and usually it makes me laugh, except when it doesn’t (see dinner time, pre-meal prayer).

Q: What is something you haven’t passed on to your kids?

A: My nose. They both got their mom’s schnoz, and I think that’s for the best. There are other things that I’m glad I didn’t pass on to them as well, but we don’t need to go into that level of detail here (see bed-wetting, chronic).

So yeah, go check out the real interview and leave me some questions over at the Dadequate blog. I’ll answer all of them, no matter how ridiculous or brilliant beyond my level of knowledge.

    Great Q&A over on Jason’s site and “bonus” content here!

    Here’s a question – what’s your greatest accomplishment as a dad?

    I’ll ask a different one over on Jason’s site…

      No idea what my greatest accomplishment is. That’s a tough question. I guess I just look at my kids and I love them so much for who they are, that it makes me feel honored to have been a part of that.
