Questions I Asked My Kids: Would You Rather…

So apparently I’m doing this blogging this all wrong. DW shared an article with me about a lady who is making over $50,000 a month with her blog. A MONTH! I’d be happy to make that in year, let alone 30 days. She also spends 40-60 hours a week on her blog. I might spend 7-10 if I write every day.

  1. What fun!!! I am going to ask The Dude at least one of these questions later when we’re in the car on the way to our friends’ for the weekend. Curious about the elephant trunk/giraffe neck in particular.


    • It was fun. DW was surprised that I would rather eat a cricket than drink lemon juice. Go ahead and ask Dude all these questions. It’ll be fun and he’ll look at ya funny πŸ™‚ Both the elephant trunk and giraffe neck would be fun!

  2. Came across your blog post today. Although all in good fun asking if someone would rather be deaf or blind is rather insensitive. Just some food for thought from a dad of a child who was born deaf and will lose her sight.


    • Thank you for stopping by. Thank you too for your insightful comment. I apologize if the question seems insensitive. I certainly didn’t mean for it to be. Both of my boys fully understand, though, as they attend school with a young girl who is blind. The question was simply to make them think about the conditions and perhaps empathize with those who can’t see or hear. I know your challenges and struggles are every day. Parenting is tough enough as it is.

      • Thanks, Just to add a bit more context. When we found out our child was deaf she was about a week old, we were devastated and felt isolated during that time. What happened over the course of the next months of her life was life changing for all of us, we were introduced to a culture that we did not know existed. Our daughter was now part of the deaf community a community that did not see their deafness as a disability or a problem at all. You will never see or hear a deaf person refer to their deafness as a disability it is just their normal. So the question of would you rather as it relates to being deaf and blind? paints being deaf as a bad thing. Anyhow, thanks for listening and you are absolutely correct being parent is challenging and that is why we try our best to be our childs strongest advocates. -Jake

      • I would never refer to someone’s condition as a handicap or disability. I’ve witnessed too many overcome their struggles and succeed – deaf, blind, or otherwise. My oldest was born with a heart condition – Transposition of the Great Arteries. He had open heart surgery when he was 5 days old. He now only goes once a year to the cardiologist for check ups. Like you, we discovered a new world upon learning of his condition. The difference for us is that his heart condition was fixable, whereas your daughter’s hearing and vision are not. You face an everyday battle and I tip my hat to you.
