There’s nothing better, than finding out why kids love their dads.
“He lets me go on his shoulders. I can see the whole world,” 4-year-old Kyle Maslin said.
Nikki de Vaere told Hsu she has a sporty dad.
“He learns me how to play tennis,” the 7-year-old said.
“He buys me stuff, even though I’m not supposed to have it,” 6-year-old Jordan Greene said, adding when asked to spill the beans, “Candy.”
Marynne Quinternet, who is 4, said her father likes to paint and play with toys.
Other kids wanted to talk about what their dads look like.
“He looks like me,” 6-year-old Jeremy Severin said, agreeing it must mean he’s a handsome devil.
“He has a long beard, very curly, has no hair,” 11-year-old Amanda Pisciotta added. “He wears orange shirts a lot, like every day.”
As far as Father’s Day presents go, Madeleine Clavel said “I’m going to make him something when I get home,” adding when asked for a hint, “I don’t want to tell you because my dad might hear it.”
Hsu next met the Casey twins, Liam and Owen, who are all of 5 years old. They revealed their plans for the big day.
“Build Legos and play,” Liam said.
“We’re going to surprise. It’s a secret,” Owen added.
Three-year-old Tijn de Vaere revealed a card that said “I love you.”
Dakota Smith, who is also 3, said her dad is getting ice cream for Father’s Day, along with, “I give him a hug and a kiss.”
For all you fathers out there, enjoy the day on Sunday.
