Today I’d like to introduce you to Gunnar. He is our oldest child and turned eleven in June. When I told him I was going to write about him today, he made me promise to not put any baby pictures up. I will keep my promise to save him from embarrassment.
My interview with Gunnar:
What do you want to be when you grow up? A football player because it’s my favorite sport and I like to play it.
What is your favorite food? BBQ ribs
What is your favorite drink? Dr. Pepper
What is your favorite dessert? Heavenly Turds!
What is your favorite movie? Charlie & The Chocolate Factory (the Johnny Depp one)
Do you have a girlfriend? No, Mom!
Do you have a bestfriend? I have 9.
What is one word that describes your mom? Happy.
What is one word that describes your dad? Awesome.
What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? Play with my friends.
Do you like to play sports? Yes – look at the answer to the first question, Mom!
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go? China. I’ve never been there before and it would be cool to see and talk to people because you can’t understand what they’re saying.
Do you have a question that you would like to ask God? When am I going to die?
What are a few things that I can tell you about Gunnar?
He is loyal. He laughs like his Pop. He can beat me in a 50 yard dash. He’s a meat-a-tarian. Like me, he quietly observes. Like his dad, he loves people. Quickly growing up into an amazing young man. Too quick.
