The Kids Behind the Blog | April 2017


It’s that time of the month again – no, not that kind – it’s time to check and chat with the kids that made me a Mama and a Step-Mama! I finally feel like we’ve shaken the funk out of our moods lately and it feels oh so awesome. The sun has been shining more lately, we even hit the high 60s on Saturday! The kids behind the blog is a monthly link up with Stephanie from WifeMommyMe. Each month I ask the kiddos some questions and although I feel like the questions definitely are geared towards little kids, I’ll take the extra 1:1 chats with my bigs while I can! Want more? Read last month here!

The Kids Behind the Blog


What is your favorite thing about Spring?

Carson: It’s finally warmer out. 

Ava: You don’t have to wear heavy jackets. 

Jack: It’s finally warm and you don’t have to wear pants any more. Oh and summer is coming! 

If April showers bring May flowers, then what do May flowers bring?

**not hens and chicks I can tell you that. Grr.**

Carson: Pilgrims! 

Ava: I think there’s actually an answer to this question, but I don’t know it! 

Jack: No clue. I don’t know anything about that. 

What does a flower need to grow?

Carson: Water, sunlight, and air. 

Ava: Water, sunlight, and dirt. 

Jack: Is the whole thing really about flowers, Mom!? Water, soil, and sunlight. 

Do you like when it’s starting to get warmer or do you like the snow better?

Carson: When it’s Spring I like it warmer, but when it’s Winter I like the snow 

Ava: I like fall, but not really snow. I guess warm so I can wear shorts.

Jack: Warm. 

What do you want to do over Spring Break? 

What do you want to do in Florida?

Carson: I want to see Grandma and the cool wildlife. 

Ava: Go to the ocean. 

Jack: Swimming in the ocean. 

Bonus! What is favorite thing about Easter?

Carson: I can go on my electronics again! 

Ava: The food. We have chicken and ham. My aunt Dani makes the best brownies! 

Jack: Easter egg hunts, candy, toys. Getting candy in the morning! 
My thoughts? I better be prepared to  move states as a grandma one day haha doesn’t sound like many like the snow of MN. 

Ava was all I know there’s an answer to the Mayflower rhyme but could not for the life of her remember, then Carson says it instantly and she was like oh duh ha. 

Since the kids also have already had spring break, we decided to check in about Florida! With Grandma in town as of yesterday and coming over today, we can start planning all the fun details. The ocean is definitely on my agenda too! 

We are all looking forward to Easter and all that the holiday brings! Good food, treats, our Lenten sacrifices will be over, and obviously the reason to celebrate in the first place!  

What are you looking forward to with Easter this year?

**In case you were wondering about the hens and chicks. Apparently this Spring I will NOT be having my little hens and chicks (succulent type thing – brown thumb over here) back. I have no clue what happened, but they’re all just gone. And by gone I mean GONE. Caleb even asked if I transplanted them all because there is nothing left. My guess is bunny or deer. Such an awful fate.

  1. Stopping by from the linkup! I thought it was so funny that he asked to go on his electronics again. That’s something my oldest would ask! I hope you have a great Easter!
