Wie heißt du und wie alt bist du?
My name is Rob and I am 39 years old (I'm writing in English because it's my native language, I live in Great Britain, and I can express myself better in English - my German is getting better, but it's not quite good enough yet).
Wie heißt dein Kind und wie alt ist es?
My daughter is named Alyssa and she is almost one year old.
Bedeutet dir der Vatertag überhaupt etwas?
Father's Day is a day to just be a dad, to spend time with my wife and my little girl, and while I don't need anything special, just having the day is nice by itself.
Wie verändert sich das Leben, wenn man Vater wird?
Every day is different, both because the little one (and her mood) affects everything you do, and also because she changes so much each and every day. Each day she does something a little bit differently from how she did it the day before, and she's always thrilled to be learning and trying new things. It has helped me see that some of the big things in life might not be so big, and that I should take pleasure in the little things, too, like how it looks to put a blue ring on top of a little ball.
Welche Musik spielst du deinem Kind vor, damit es einschläft?
"La Le Lu", "Auf Der Mauer", and I sing her the theme from the television show, "Mr. Ed": "A horse is a horse, of course, of course, and no one can talk to a horse, of course, unless, of course, the horse, of course, is the famous Mr. Ed".
Was wünscht du dir von deinem Kind zum Vatertag?
A wave, a laugh, a smile, and a kiss.
Was schenkst du deinem Vater zum Vatertag?
A new video of his grand-daughter playing with the toys he has given her.
