23 Questions I Asked My Kids: The 2 Year Anniversary

This is the origin of the “Questions I Asked My Kids” series that appears here every Thursday. Or most Thursdays. This is the 52nd episode, the one year episode. I have asked 10 questions every Thursday for an entire year. 520 questions. Except the pilot episode had 23. Of course, sometimes questions were repeated just to see if they would give the same answer.

In honor of those first 23 questions, I thought I’d revisit them. It took me more than two years to ask a year’s worth of questions. The pilot first appeared in June of 2015. Crash was just 8 and Bang 4. You can read Bang’s answers here and Crash’s are here. As always, feel free to steal these questions to ask your own kids (no matter how old they are). Just be sure to tag me so I can read their answers.

  2. Two years! It hasn’t been every Thursday, just 52 of them. They look forward to them. Often they ask to answer questions before Thursday. I can’t wait to be in a Dad book and be famous for teaching! HAHA 😀 Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Hahahaa! It’s always good to revisit those questions, isn’t it? Are you going to ask the same thing again and see how different the answer would be?

    “I have hairband you don’t” has got to be one of my fav. The living room couch seems like a universal cool place to hang out. 😊

    • The couch is a great place for hanging out. Unless you have food. No food on the couch. Food is restricted to the floor. I asked the same questions that I asked 2 years ago. I haven’t looked at how their answers are different, yet. I did leave links in the post to them so we can get to them quickly 🙂
