I'm back again today with another installment of "The Guys Behind the Blog". I love that each month I get to interview both Chris (here) and Noah (with our new "The Kids Behind the Blog" link up.)
What was your favorite TV show as a child? What's your favorite TV show that Noah watches?
Favorite tv show as a kid was GI Joe (cartoon) and Dukes Of Hazzard (non-cartoon). I like the Octonauts because it's the show that Noah is the most into currently, so we can play with the different characters before, during, and after the show.
What was your favorite board game to play as a child? What is your favorite board game to play with Noah now?
Favorite board game as a kid was Sorry, and then Monopoly when I was in my teens. My favorite game to play with Noah right now is probably Loopin' Louie because it's a game that I never had as a kid and it's cool to see his hand/eye coordination to make sure Louie doesn't knock over his chips.
Who was/is your favorite superhero and why?
I used to really love Batman growing up. I'd watch the old Batman tv show from the 1960's with Adam West and Burt Ward. It was fun to see him battle all the bad guys (Joker, Penguin, Riddler, Catwoman, etc)
How did you spend your summers growing up?
I'd play outside a lot in the summer and go to the beach as well as the town pool or even the man-made lake we joined for a few years. As you can see, it was a lot of things that were outside. We'd occasionally play Nintendo too, but that would be at night or on rainy days, haha.
How do you think Noah is similar (and different) to you as a child?
I think Noah can be a little shy in some situations, so that's similar to me. He's different in the sense that he has so much technology at his fingertips (literally) that he can lay in bed and watch tv shows on his iPad. I don't think I even had a tv in my room until I was maybe 7 or so, and I didn't get a VCR until years and years later and Noah has maybe 100 shows pre-saved on the Tivo so he can literally watch anything he wants. When I was little and watching tv, I'd either look to see what was on in the TV Guide or else I'd switch to the channel that scrolled what was on.
