10 Questions I Asked My Kids

Welcome to Thursday. That makes tomorrow Friday! They’re calling for some snow here tomorrow night. 5-10 cm. Not much. But it is much because it’s March. They’re calling for another 10-20 sometime next week. But this is Cape Breton, ‘bye. That’ll change a dozen times between now and then. Plus we’re making a road trip next week. We don’t need no snow storm screwin’ up our plans.  I’m officially ready for spring. I’m tired of winter clothes.

  1. Bang’s “her head” and “his skull” — I am dying over here!

    We had 75 degree weather today and the weatherman is saying we’re getting a freeze this weekend with the possibility of a dusting. Crazy weather!

  2. The ‘ribs’ answer certainly made me laugh! And the answer to question #4 is just so cute…

    The spring is here in ENgland, daffodils are boarding the streets and there’s buds in the trees. But it’s bloody raining all the time! Though we recently had *two* days of sun in a row… I swear, two!


  3. I wish there were a ‘love’ button instead of just that mealy-mouthed ‘like’. I look forward so much to reading your ‘questions I ask my kids’. This week, aside from the howlers involving electronics and construction — and yes, the ‘ribs’!!!!!!! — I am seriously pleased with this exchange:
    4. How can you tell when two people love each other?
    Crash: They usally play together a lot
    Now there’s a Life Lesson for everyone.
    Thank you — and thank Crash and Bang for me, please.

    • Aww.. Thank you so much Alice! Best comment ever! Yeah, they get pretty pissy when I take electronics away. That’s how I know it works. They’ve now gone 2 weeks without, minus one day they were allowed and then lost them right after. I was totally not expecting them to name those body parts as the best. I bet that answer will change in a year’s time. I love asking them about love. They never fail to entertain on that one 🙂 I will be sure to thank them for you.

    • I checked out a book about giraffes from the library. It said their tongues are 21 inches long! He wanted me to measure his tongue after that. Not sure why he has chosen a giraffe but more power to him 🙂


  4. Hahahaha! I Love the quote at the bottom. Who’d have thought you could ruin their life by asking them to put on their pants; amongst other things. A chameleon is ALWAYS a good idea for a pet and who doesn’t like ribs and skulls. Brilliant! 🙂
