The Kids Behind the Blog - November

I'm bracing myself for a tense day in the United States. We don't even know the outcome yet, but when we wake up, approximately half of our country will be relieved while the other half will be  angry. Social media will be full of hateful words from both sides and insults will be tossed around without care. Unfortunately, that's how it goes after an election. I will be doing my best to stay away from all the ugliness and hoping that people will move on quickly!


As I said earlier today, as much as I want my candidate to win, it really won't be the end of the world if they don't. We are doing our best to teach our kids how important it is to vote for what or who they believe in and that it's equally as important to be tolerable and civil if we don't get our way. Nothing is permanent, and the great thing about living in the United States is that we have the ability to bring about change every 4 years. No matter the outcome, the sun will still rise tomorrow and life will continue.

The only thing I want to do right now is share light-hearted, happy posts! Here's the November edition of The Kids Behind the Blog:

The Kids Behind the Blog


Dylan - Age 11 (Next month when I do this interview, he will be 12!!!)



What are 3 things you are thankful for?



" I am thankful for my family, my house and I'm thankful to have siblings."


(I like that answer!)

What is your favorite food served at Thanksgiving dinner?



"Hahaha! Stuffing!"


(I'm not surprised.)


If you could be president for the day, what would you do?



"Make it so there would be no school!"


(Niiiice, Dylan. Nice.)


How many feathers does a Turkey have?



"Oh gosh. Ummm...I'll say 16."


 (Think higher, dude!)


Who is your favorite relative to see during the holidays?



"I'm happy to see my Great Grandma!"

 (My husband's maternal grandmother whom we only see on certain holidays.)

Alexandria - Age 9 




What are 3 things you are thankful for?


"Family, Bunnies and Food."

(I'm not the least bit surprised food made the list! She's our biggest eater!)


What is your favorite food served at Thanksgiving dinner?


"I have to say mashed potatoes and gravy."

(She could easily eat 4 servings!)


If you could be president for the day, what would you do?


"What would I do? Ummm. I would stuff myself with food. I would just eat the whole day!"

(Food. Again. All she does is eat or think about food!)


How many feathers does a Turkey have?


"I'm guessing like a million."

(That just might be an exaggeration...)


Who is your favorite relative to see during the holidays?


"Ooooo, tricky question! All of them!"


 (Such a fair answer!)

Liliana - Age 5 



What are 3 things you are thankful for?


"I'm happy to have my family, a life and a bed."

(Oh, she's good!)

What is your favorite food served at Thanksgiving dinner?


"Turkey!"

(That answer DOES surprise me!)


If you could be president for the day, what would you do?


"I would just talk to everybody."

 (Another fair answer!)


How many feathers does a Turkey have?


"Nine! No. I mean yes. I mean they actually have a lot more. Like 21, 22, 23, 24..."

 (Typical Lily answer. She likes to talk. And elaborate on every single detail.)


Who is your favorite relative to see during the holidays?


"Uncle Scott!"

(I don't think she realizes yet that Uncle Scott moved back from Michigan and now lives 5 minutes away!)

Liam - Age 3



What are 3 things you are thankful for?


"Hi, Mama!"

(Hi, Liam!)


What is your favorite food served at Thanksgiving dinner?


"EAT!"

(One track mind.)


If you could be president for the day, what would you do? 


"EAT!"

 (See what I mean?)


How many feathers does a Turkey have?


"Un. Oooo. Reee!"

 (I had to ask him to count how many feathers a turkey has!)


Who is your favorite relative to see during the holidays?


"Papa! And Nana. Mana."

 (His favorites!)



 The Lucky Few

Their answers always make me smile! I hope my interview with the kids behind my blog made you smile, too. Stay positive, my friends! Despite the outcome (whatever that may be), life is still incredibly good!
