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.  This month's questions were all Thanksgiving related.  We did manage to throw in an election related question, without getting too political ;)

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 are 3 things you are thankful for?
2. What is your favorite food served at Thanksgiving dinner?
3. If you could be president for the day, what would you do? 
4. How many feathers does a Turkey have?
5. Who is your favorite relative to see during the holidays?​

    And a few notes from the video...
    1.  I absolutely love hearing what little kids are thankful for.  They really are so pure and innocent.
    2.  I knew his answer would be funny... he really doesn't like the typical "Thanksgiving food".
    3.  Maybe we should just let a 4 year old run the country!
    4.  I'm not at all surprised at this answer... this is his go to answer when we ask how much something costs too.
    5.  I assume he's thinking about Canadian Thanksgiving just a month ago, when we saw my parents and his uncles.

    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 December 14th. Since my co-hosts and I are crazy fans of Christmas, we couldn't narrow it down to just 5 questions this month.  So instead, we have 10 questions for you!  Feel free to ask your kid(s) all of them, or just pick and choose the ones that suit your kids the best :)

    December Questions:

    1.) Which reindeer is your favorite?
    2.) What do you want for Christmas?
    3.) What would you do if you caught Santa at your house?
    4.) What if Santa got stuck in your chimney?
    5.) Do you want it to snow on Christmas? Why or Why not?
    6.) Have you been naughty or nice this year? Why?
    7.) If Santa asked you to fly in his sleigh with him would you do it?
    8.) What is your favorite Christmas movie?
    9.) If you could change the color of Rudolf's nose what color would you make it?
    10.) Sing me one Christmas Carol (then note which song they pick and how they sing it. This could be funny because kids are always mixing up lyrics!)

    And I'm very excited to announce that we will be continuing The Kids Behind The Blog in 2017!  It will still be on the second Wednesday of each month, on the following dates:

    January 11 | February 8 | March 8 | April 12 | May 10 | June 14
    July 12 | August 9 | September 13 | October 11 | November 8 | December 13


    1. He is so sweet! I love his little voice. I would have totally voted for Noah for president. I wish I'd known he was running. :)

    2. Adorable! I can't wait for December!

    3. He's so cute! I vote for letting a 4 year old run the country, too!

    4. Oh Noah! I always love watching his interviews. I am totally with you on #1 too. It is just the best.

    5. Noah is such a cutie! How can you stand all that cuteness?! It tickled me his "pat answer" for money and feathers is 20 ;) And he basically has the same food preferences as Kinsey lol

    6. I love the way he says Super Heroes! So cute. Mason totally doesn’t like any of the traditional Thanksgiving foods either. Sometimes I can get him to eat a little bit of ham, but its hit and miss. He usually gets his own macaroni & cheese, macaroni and bread! Poop/Poopy is such a favorite word among little boys, isn’t it? Did he almost say Happy Halloween?
