Already planning ahead what kind of garbage snack food i want to eat. And getting ready to collect some beers and ciders.  :)

I'm trying to decide what I'm going to load up the smoker with :)

I'll get some extra time in bed in the morning but it'll be very much option one for me (four kids requires two parents on duty). We go and see grandad on Father's Day too, so little time for hobby. 

In terms of getting kids into the hobby, I think I've missed the boat with my eldest. He's all about football and mainstream, terrible chart music. I don't think he's got a nerdy bone in his body. My second one is three and already wants to paint minis before his bedtime story each night, so I may have more success there. We'll have to wait and see with the other two.

My Son is only 3 months old, so we're still trying to find an acceptable balance.

I tend to paint for a few hours each morning between 6 and 8 as I'm an early bird, but a whole day away gaming is tough to find. I'm sure things will settle down once he gets a bit older though.

I have kids 2 and 4 and it's pretty easy to find a full day or two away a month at this point but it was pretty tough going for the first few years. If you have someone you regularly play and room at your place, it's probably easier to have someone come your way. Not hard to watch the kids in their own environment. For me, I wait till the kids go to sleep, then I get a good 2 hours a night if I want it to paint.  Best of luck with kid. Mine are old enough to roll dice and "have battles" now so the brain washing is underway.

We went out for breakfast together, then they went out for movies and swimming (and the week's grocery shopping) while I watched movies and painted Ogors.  Everybody wins.

Slept in (until 11!!!), did Daddy IT stuff, went swimming, at at Bear's BBQ, watched Game of Thrones then built some Brutes. Good day!

Day before I went to the LGS and played some X-Wing and Silver Tower.

A bit late, and I'm not a Father (yet, for a bit more anyway). But I believe a true sign of being a fantastic father is that your kids will insist you play your games with them, and not the other way around.

I think it's just luck of the draw. I've got one who just wants to play video games and another who, at the age of three, already wants to paint minis.

We went out for Breakfast and my hobby was assembling a command console for my son (aka a Jumparoo!)
