Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep67

MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta BravesWe’re back from another evening of baseball practice. It’s amazing how one can improve just by seeing others do what you’re trying to do. Like swing a bat. He has always swung well. Or at least well enough to hit the ball. A couple days ago we were taking some swings in the backyard. Our neighbor, also a ball player, joined in. Once Crash how he swung he adjusted his own swing. Immediately, he added 30 feet to his hits. Sometimes you just need to see what the next level looks like in order to reach the next level.

1. What made you laugh today?

Crash: When we were watching funny bird videos at Nanny and Pop’s house.
Bang: Doing funny things at the water fountain. When my friend was getting a drink at the fountain I pulled his head away and then he got splashed

2. What are three things you are grateful for today?

Crash: That my friend is allowed to sleepover tomorrow, that I’m still alive, and that I have a loving mom and dad and only on occasion they get mad and yell.
Bang: Math, Spring, and it’s almost my birthday!

3. Which accomplishment are you most proud of?

Crash: I’ve made friends
Bang: I’m most proud of my fast running

4. What are three things you are learning in school?

Crash: Persuasive writing, fractions, and medieval times
Bang: Parallelograms, and I can’t think of anything else because I’m smart. I’m ready for grade 6.

5. Are you going to be a dad one day? How many kids do you want?

Crash: Maybe… I’m hoping for at least one and a maximum of four
Bang: I’m going to be a dad and a worker. I’ll have 3 kids and they’ll be little triplets.

6. What nice thing did you do for someone today?

Crash: Held the door for all my classmates because I was the last one out
Bang: Hugged Brenna.

7. What do you like most about yourself?

Crash: I like my good looks most
Bang: I like how I’m smart.

8. What do you like most about your brother?

Crash: That he entertains me and he sings in the church choir
Bang: He plays Bey Blades with me and loves me

9. What’s your earliest/first memory? (alt: What’s the most embarrassing thing I do?)

Crash: I remember we were doing wood for Guppie’s house, I was talking about MineCraft a lot and Guppie gave me money to buy Minecraft because I helped with the wood.
Bang: When I got stuck in the bathroom because I had soapy hands I couldn’t turn on the water to rinse my hands and I couldn’t open the door because my hands were too slippery. I layed on the floor crying.

10. What is the theme song for your life?

Crash: Castle on the Hill by Ed Sheeran
Bang: Don’t Stop the Music by Rhianna

  1. I think life in your house must be one head shaking laugh to the next!! The son that is grateful for math is heading for engineering school for sure. Personally, it’s the bane of my existence. Maybe he can come help my fourth graders with long division so I don’t have to? Anyway, I love what you said about baseball, seeing someone at the next level makes it more attainable. That actually works for just about anything in life.

    • There are many laughs, indeed. I love that he loves math. I also love that he loves to ask questions. Sorry, he hasn’t learned long division yet. He is picking up some multiplication, though. So it won’t be long!
