We interrupt this #anniversaryweek for a little Kids Behind the Blog! It’s the second Wednesday of the month and time to check in with the other loves of my life: our big kids! Sadly, Harv has taken another turn for the worse and another long night and day is ahead. Send health and good vibes. So I’m jumping right in with the kids and their questions and then off for extra baby snuggles.
What’s at the end of a rainbow?
Carson: Whatever you were looking for.
Jack: A port-a-potty. Haha no. Nothing I guess.
What do you like to do when it rains? Jump in puddles or play inside?
Carson: Binge watch TV.
Ava: Play games & eat snacks.
Jack: Play on tablet or games & eat snacks.
If you found a leprechaun at the end of a rainbow what would you do?
Carson: Threaten it until it gives us its gold.
Ava: Build it a tiny house and then live it, ok I’ll just live in it myself.
Jack: Force him to give us 50 million dollars.
Tell me three ways you know it is spring time.
Carson: The top YouTube videos are all about gardening, Harv eating dandelions, & everyone else scooters too.
Ava: No more winter coats! The grass is green again. Shorts are allowed at school.
Jack: The sun comes out and the weather gets warmer. We also go outside a lot.
Do you wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? What happens if you don’t wear green?
Carson: Try to!
Ava: I try to if I remember, but usually I forget and it gets awkward because I’m not and everyone else is.
Wow kids just wow. Apparently not only do we need health vibes, but maybe some positivity, too!
First of all, the binge watching tv, the excessive tablet playing, and YouTube watching doesn’t happen at our house. We try to limit that stuff as much as possible! Carson did however, give up screen time for Lent so I think it’s getting to him, you know after the week it’s already been.
Ava and I are totally on the same Tiny House-Big Living page! Ha, hello HGTV and future kid blogger! I will not be inviting any leprechauns to mine, though. Also, the fact that spring means no winter coats is pretty fantastic! And… Carson is right, he will happily scooter in 10° windy weather, whereas the rest of us are still camping out in the warmth. Spring means company for him!
Lastly, we had a nice chat about the beauty of a rainbow and the value of money. Oh! And Caleb found a picture.. That should clear things up about Jack… I was not involved with that. Just so you know.
There you have it, a very um… interesting… kids behind the blog. Wish me luck, wish me luck.
What are you all doing to prepare for St. Patrick’s day?? Anything fun! Can’t wait to hear!
