The Kids Behind The Blog - May Edition

The Kids Behind The Blog

Nothing marks the rapid passing of time quite like The Kids Behind The Blog monthly interview. Every time I sit down to write my post for the month, one thought comes to mind: How is it already {insert month here}?!? This year is flying by even faster than last year!

Each month, I ask my kids a set of questions and I love to see how they answer. It just gives me a bit of insight into their thought process and some of their responses are hilarious! I love this link party, because I know that one day I will be so grateful that I did this!

The Kids Behind The Blog May 2017

If you had a magic tree-house that could take you anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Liam (Age 3): "See Dada. See Papa." (Mom Thoughts: Not surprising!)

Liliana (Age 5): "I would go to the beach! Virginia!" (Mom Thoughts: It's her favorite place!)

Alexandria (Age 10): "I would go to Bunny Land. When I go to sleep, I see it. Okay? Don't judge me." (Mom Thoughts: When Lexie gets old, she's going to be the crazy bunny lady.)

Dylan (Age 12): "Can it be fantasy places? I would want to go...I'm thinking here...fantasy place...maybe a medieval castle back in the 1500's! That's where I would want to go!" (Mom Thoughts: Bonus points for creativity!)

The Lucky Few

Finish this sentence ... "Red Rover, Red Rover..."

Liam (Age 3): "Red Red Red Red Red. Red Rover Red Rover!" (He followed this by laughing so hard that he fell over!)

Liliana (Age 5): "I don't know what that means! Wait...I would say I'm coming for ya!"

Alexandria (Age 10): "Sees rainbows."

Dylan (Age 12): "Call Dylan over. I guess. I don't know what Red Rover is! Weird..."

Mom Thoughts: None of my kids have ever played Red Rover. I had to explain it! Definitely a sign of the times I guess. Apparently a game of tag called "Infected" is a thing now?


What is your best childhood memory?

Liam (Age 3): "Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah."  (Mom Thoughts: I think Liam is done with the interview. And Dylan is going to be grounded for teaching him how to say blah blah blah!)

Liliana (Age 5): "My favorite memory was when you babysitted Charlie, and she fell over by your door and said, "I farted!'" (Mom Thoughts: What is it with kids and farts?!?)

Alexandria (Age 10): "My best childhood memory was when I went to the Deckhouse and I got a prize." (Mom Thoughts: Awww! It was her birthday and she was SO excited!)

Dylan (Age 12): "Let me think here. I'm going to have to say whenever we built the swing set in the backyard. But now I can't go on it because I'm too big!" (Mom Thoughts: He's right and it makes me sad!)


What is your favorite part about nature and being outside?

Liam (Age 3): "Outside. That. Bounce bounce bounce!" (Mom Thoughts: He's LOVES to go outside and he loves to jump on the trampoline!)

Liliana (Age 5): "My favorite thing is finding baby animals that are hurt. I help them survive and when they feel better I let them go." (Mom Thoughts: Can you tell what her current career choice is?)

Alexandria (Age 10): "My favorite part about nature and outside is that there are pretty flowers and creatures." (Mom Thoughts: Typical positive Lexie answer!)

Dylan (Age 12): "My favorite part of nature is toads, and finding them. Any reptiles really. My favorite part about being outside is basically you can do anything you want. You could build a tree fort or sword fight with sticks." (Mom Thoughts: If only we could pry the football out of his hands...)


What do you think Mommy would like for Mother's Day?

Liam (Age 3): "Pig. Oink, oink, oink."  (Mom Thoughts: Only if it's one of those teacup pigs that I could dress up in tiny outfits. Anybody have a few thousand dollars to contribute?)

Liliana (Age 5): "I would say a picture of a flower and a tree."  (Mom Thoughts: I would treasure it!)

Alexandria (Age 10): "A nice day to relax!" (Mom Thoughts: BINGO!)

Dylan (Age 12): "I don't know! LOTS OF CHOCOLATES!" (Mom Thoughts: He DOES know his chocolate-obsessed mom quite well!)

That's a wrap! As always, I loved hearing the kids behind MY blog answer these questions. Check back next month for June's interview!

Linking up HERE for The Kids Behind The Blog. 


  1. Crazy bunny lady << I love it! I am giggling over Liam’s answer to the Red Rover question. I love that he laughed so hard he fell over. That boy has so much joy!! Hey, I’ll take one of those tiny pigs too! Love all of the answers and the pictures too. Thank you for joining us again!

  2. I cracked up at Liam laughing so hard he fell over! And for Dylan not knowing what Red Rover was he got the answer right!

  3. I just love Lily's sweet little heart. Her answer about finding baby animals just melted my heart. She is definitely going to make a difference in the world one day. Sweet girl!

  4. haha, crazy bunny lady. I would be too if I wasn't crazy allergic to them, so sweet that she wants to help all of the animals. What I wanted to be when I grew up, until I realized I was allergic to anything with hair...haha!

  5. Oh your eldest is so imaginative. Such funny little answers!!

  6. I agree that the months go by so quickly and I really notice it due to this link up. Ugh! They had great answers!! I think Liam wins for cuteness. And I'd ground Dylan for teaching him blah blah blah too. Ha ha!

  7. I love Liam's answers :) And going to bunny land? I love it!!
