The Kids Behind The Blog

Another month of "The Kids Behind The Blog"!!!  I am really loving this link up and it's proving to be a really great way to document Noah throughout the course of a year.  I really love recording our interviews on video because it really shows his personality, growth, and speech development.  The past few months we've done the interviews when daddy is home, where one of us does the interview and the other records it.  But this month got away from us, so I had to do the interview yesterday when Chris was at work.  Noah also has been excited to ask us questions as well, but this month he didn't bring it up, so I let it go.  I personally find it fun that we keep naturally mixing it up.

As much as I love asking Noah the questions each month, I also have so much fun reading what your and my co-hosts' (CrystalBethJessicaStephanie) kids have to say each month! And in case you are new to the linkup, here's a little background information. We came up with this idea because we are such huge fans of Betsy's "The Guys Behind the Blog" and wanted to create something similar to do with the "kids that made us mamas".  Each month, we have a set of questions to ask our kid(s) and we will share their answers on our blogs. We sure hope that you will do the same and link up with us each month! We can't wait to read what your kids have to say!

This month's questions were:

1. What was your favorite thing you did over the summer?
2. What’s your favorite thing to learn about at school?
3. Who is your best friend from school?
4. What do you want be when you grow up?
5. What is your least favorite thing about school?

And as usual, I have a few notes regarding the video and some of Noah's answers.
  • I was kind of surprised Noah didn't have questions for me this month.  Though I did think his answer to what he wanted to be when he grows up was cute, and quite appropriate.
  • I think he's confusing camp with school because he learned about dinosaurs during dinosaur camp and had to ask for clarification on what I meant by "school" for the best friend question.  I hope he isn't disappointed when he starts school again and it isn't dinosaur camp ;)
  • But based on the answer to the last question, I think the new school year will be great!
I'd love for you to share what your kids had to say this month. Just grab our button and link up at the bottom of the post! Also make sure to stop by CrystalBethJessica, and Stephanie's blogs to see how their cute kids answered!

And as for next month, the link up will go live on September 14th. Here are the questions...
