Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep63

Have you ever longed for bedtime? Not for yourself, but for your kids. PLEASE! Can it be bedtime now? I know they have only been home from school for 17 seconds, but can I send them to bed anyway? Getting in the truck to come home from school Crash hit Bang on the head with the truck door (accidentally) when he was trying to get in his brother’s side of the truck instead of his own. At home, I send them outside to play since it was sunny and warm. Crash took my GoPro with him to video himself skateboarding. Bang runs into him with his bike and breaks the frame that holds the camera. They come inside because apparently it’s no fun outside without a camera. So they try to play inside but all we hear is “Watch me.” “Watch this.” “Watch watch watch.” We watch some, but they certainly don’t need an audience for everything they do.

It’s 9:34pm. Guess where they finally are? You can probably tell from all the silence around here…

As always, feel free to ask your heathens these questions. Just be sure to tag me so I can read their answers.

6. Did you have a dream last night?

Questions I Asked My Kids

Episode 62. 620 questions. That’s how many questions I answered before breakfast. They ask more questions than Numeris (they’re that survey group). This is my chance to exact a bit of revenge. It’s only 10 questions, though. The difference is, my questions don’t have wrong answers. Theirs do. Imagine all the ways to answer, “Why is windy?”

Feel free to borrow these questions to ask your own kids or spouse or parents or neighbor or next random person who passes you in Wal-Mart. Remember to tag me in it so I can read and share!

So without further ado, my questions…

Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep61

January was a slow month. It only had 9 posts. February will be different. I’ll kick it into high gear. Or at least a couple gears higher. Preferably not reverse or neutral. But I’ll save those stats for Monday’s State of Blog Address.

As for tonight, I’m going to enjoy the silence that is as sweet as the birthday cake flavored ice cream I’m eating. The kids are finally in bed. Putting them to bed is akin to wrestling gators. The gators don’t like it and by the time you’re done you’re both lucky to have survived.

Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep 58

I think I can let the cat out of the bag now. My parents are joining us for Christmas this year! They are serious about their traveling. Hence they left at 2:30 in the morning so they could drive for about 14 hours in one day. They have stopped for the night and will be here around lunch time tomorrow. To say that I’m excited would be an understatement. The boys know nothing about them coming. It has been so hard keeping the secret, but the secret is safe. Just before they get here we’ll send the boys to DW’s mom’s (three house up the street). We got a refrigerator box to wrap with Christmas paper to hide them in to surprise the boys. I can’t wait to see their reaction. You will get to read all about to tomorrow. There will be video, too. Now to get these questions done and get a bit more cleaning done!

Questions I Asked My Kids: Ep55

There’s an age at which we don’t care what other think of us. We are young and innocent and naive. At some point we cross a line, reach a milestone, come to realize that other people have thoughts, too, and some of those thoughts are about us. Then we start to take notice of what we wear, how we look, what we do, what toys we play with. We go from hating jeans to wearing nothing but. We want to be in the “in crowd”. We want to belong. I’m not exactly sure when it happens, but somewhere between the age of 6 and 10. I know this because the 6 year old has no issue, and thinks it quite funny, to wear one boot and one shoe to walk to Nanny’s house. The 10 year old has to fix his hair before he leaves the house. The 6 year old will wear snow pants and a winter coat when it’s cold and snowy. The ten year old is too cool for snow pants. I’m proud of them both, though. No matter how much or little their desire to fit in is, they always try to include everyone in whatever they perceive to be the fad.

1. What do you like dreaming about?

Crash: Playing Minecraft with my classmates
Bang: Playing with my girlfriends in the yard. I have about 6 of them!

2. If you could do anything right now, what would you do?

Crash: Play Minecraft Play on the Switch
Bang: Be cricket and stay up late and hop around and play

3. What does it feel like when I hug you?

Crash: Like you love me
Bang: Pretty warm or pretty cold, but maybe really hot because you are hot sometimes

4. Did you help anyone today?

Crash: Yeah. I helped my friend when she dropped her pencil case and everything went everywhere.
Bang: I helped my friend when he was waiting in the front office. I told him his mom was in the gym.

5. What makes you awesome?

Crash: There’s a girl in my class who likes me. Maybe one or two!
Bang: That I’m an awesome listener. I put my hand up. I don’t call out and I keep my eyes on the teacher and I play safely and I’m nice and kind

6. What animal do wish could you could talk to and it could talk back?

Crash: Dolphins
Bang: I want to talk to a real dog and know what they’re saying

7. If you had to make your own supper, what would you eat?

Crash: Spaghetti. Get the noodles how they’re supposed to be. Then get the hamburger all brown and add the sauce
Bang: I wish I could make macaroni and cheese. I would make Kraft Dinner instead because there’s instructions on the box

The story behind this: For lunch one day I made what Canadians call “Kraft Dinner” which is macaroni and cheese. Bang didn’t want to eat the same thing as his brother and threw his temper tantrum. I asked him, “Want me to make macaroni and cheese for him and Kraft Dinner for you?” He was okay with that…

8. How tall is Santa?

Crash: 6 foot 2
Bang: Thirty feet

9. What are you tired of hearing?

Crash: No, when I don’t want to hear it
Bang: My brother go “mmmmm” (cow sound)

10. What 3 gifts did the wise men bring to Jesus when he was born?

Crash: I think one gave him gold, like treasure. One gave him a basket of berries. And one gave him a bottle of rum.
Bang: A front loader, a digger, and clothes

(Guess what story we’ll be reading next…)
