The Kids Behind The Blog {April}

I love the month of April! The days are longer and warmer, Spring is in full bloom and Easter is right around the corner. It definitely makes me happy after a dreary winter, and the promise of the (slightly more) carefree days ahead just lingers in the air!

My kids have Spring Fever, too, but they kindly took the time to answer a few questions before running out the door! Here are their answers to April's edition of The Kids Behind The Blog:


What is your favorite thing about Spring?

Liam (Age 3): "Play!"

Liliana (Age 5): "My favorite thing about Spring is...going out to play!"

Alexandria (Age 10): "It rains, and it's nice and pretty outside."

Dylan (Age 12): "The warm weather."

Mom Thoughts: Well, this is going to be a straightforward interview...


If April showers bring May flowers what do May flowers bring?

Liam (Age 3): "Mama!"

Liliana (Age 5): "Honey?!? Because bees and butterflies come and get honey from the flowers!"

Alexandria (Age 10): "Ummm. Leprechauns? I don't know!"

Dylan (Age 12): "Fun outside."

Mom Thoughts: SERIOUSLY? Not a single one of you said pilgrims?!? 3 out of 4 of you told that joke over and over and over and over again at Thanksgiving!


What does a flower need to grow?

Liam (Age 3): "Shhhhhh..."

Liliana (Age 5): "Rain."

Alexandria (Age 10): "Water."

Dylan (Age 12): "Water."

Mom Thoughts: Obviously Liam wants me to shut up.


Do you like that it's starting to get warmer or do you like the cold and snow better?

Liam (Age 3): "Outside!!!"

Liliana (Age 5): "I like when it's hot."

Alexandria (Age 10): "I like that it's starting to get warmer."

Dylan (Age 12): "I like that it's getting warmer BY FAR."

Mom Thoughts: A sure sign that we need to move south!


What do you want to do over your Spring Break?

Liam (Age 3): "I don't know."

Liliana (Age 5): "Hmm...let me think about that. You bet! I like to have playdates with my friends! Mom, can we actually do that with Charlie?"

Alexandria (Age 10): "I want to lay in bed and rest my arm. I want to get this thing off."

Dylan (Age 12): "Swim, play basketball, jump on the trampoline and hang out with friends."

Mom Thoughts: I like Lexie's plan. Hey, kids, let's all lay in bed and rest our arms!


What is your favorite thing about Easter?

Liam (Age 3): "I don't know. Jump jump jump! Sneeze!" (Or in his own words, "I duh-know. Ju Ju Jup! Sneeeeeeeeeeeee!")

Liliana (Age 5): "My favorite thing about Easter is having an Easter Hunt!"

Alexandria (Age 10): "That we get presents from the Easter Bunny." *Smiles.* "Yeah. Just because I'm ten years old doesn't mean I'm not allowed to believe." (She doesn't.)

Dylan (Age 12): "That I get to spend time with family and friends."

Mom Thoughts: Liam clearly wins for best answer of the day!


These interviews are one of my favorite things to do each month! I love how Dylan and Lexie are good sports and still participate, even though they are cool tweens now. I just love hearing all of their thoughts, and I love to record their answers, exactly how they say them!
