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.  While I loved the questions for this month, I suspected I'd get either a lot of "I don't know"s or some very random answers.  And while I was right, I was pleasantly surprised with how well it went!

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" (which I've heard rumors will be brought back very soon by some of my favorite blogging friends!) 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 is your favorite sport? Why?
2. If someone gave you a million dollars what would you buy?
3. Tell me 3 things that kids do better than mommies and daddies. 
4. What is your favorite thing to do in the fall?
5. Share with me 3 things you like about yourself.

And as usual, I have a few notes regarding the video and some of Noah's answers.
  • Noah's outfit and hair cracks me up.  He is currently obsessed with camo, and while I'm not against it per se (I actually bought him a camo winter coat!), it bothers me that the shirt doesn't match the pants (even though they are both Old Navy).  Ideally I'd love him to wear each piece with a solid top or pants, but he feels the more camo the better!  And even though we just got his hair cut, it just looks messy if we don't comb it and put a little gel in it.  I tried to do it before we started, but he was very against it.  You win some, you lose some.  
  • Noah's favorite sport (or rather sports team) is pretty funny considering where we live!  Let's just say that Noah's Nonna, who's a Yankees fan, is not very pleased ;)  I have to acknowledge that Chris, who's a Mets fan, is handling it very well.  
  • I think it's so funny that even with a million dollars, Noah would still just want more toys.  I guess we don't need to win the lottery!  
  • I had a feeling that Noah wouldn't really know how to answer 3 things that kids are better at than mommies and daddies.  While his first answer was all on his own, and hilarious, I'm glad Chris was there with me to help him with some ideas.
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 October 12th. Here are the questions...

October Questions:

1. What do you want to be for Halloween?
2. Do you like handing out candy or collecting it? 
3. What should mommy and daddy be for Halloween?
4. Do you like to make a scary or happy faces Jack-o-lantern? 
5. What is the best part of Halloween? What's the worst?


  1. He's so silly!! Cam likes camo too and I'm trying to get on board but it's tough.

  2. The money question cracks me up! Mine wanted to buy gummies!

  3. haha, the camo thing, my son too! And mine just wanted to buy more toys too!

  4. Oh friend! I just adore him. I love the messy hair and I kind of like that the camo doesn't match. His answers to #5 were so good!

  5. Noah is adorable!!! My older son went through a big camo phase, too. It used to drive me crazy when he didn't match!

  6. Haha! So good that Chris is handling things well. It will be interesting to see how Noah feels in a few more years. I don't think the kids grasp just how much money a million dollars is.
