The Kids Behind The Blog | April 2017

In case you haven't noticed, I've been very MIA from the blog recently.  While I love this space, right now I feel like my time is better spent focusing on other aspects of my life.  At the moment, I'm not sure if this will be a temporary hiatus or a permanent one, but I'm enjoying the extra time.  So while I haven't had a regular post in a while, I can't turn my back on "The Kids Behind The Blog"!!!  Not only is it my favorite linkup, but I really love having these monthly interviews of Noah and would really regret it if I just stopped!  In case you are new here, Noah is my "kid behind the blog". He is 4 years old, goes to school 3 mornings a week, and spends the rest of the time home with me.  I have been recording our interviews on video and I love how it documents his personality, growth, and speech development.

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 "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 is your favorite thing about Spring?
2) If April showers bring May flowers what do May flowers bring?
3) What does a flower need to grow? 
4) Do you like that it's starting to get warmer or do you like the cold and snow better?
5) What do you want to do over your Spring Break?

Bonus: What is your favorite thing about Easter?

A few notes...
1.  We have definitely been going on lots of walks and bike rides, but we haven't flown a kite since the Fall... I guess we better get on that!
2. I was kind of surprised he knew this saying... he told me later he learned it at school.  While I was trying to get him to say bees, I liked his answer even better!
3. I crack up how he says water like such a New Jersey kid!
4. Haha, I love that he loves Chipotle... just like me!!!  But we had Chipotle A LOT this winter, so I don't know what he's talking about!
5. This is Noah's go to answer whenever I ask him what he wants to do.  He is such a homebody! I'm actually amazed we get out of the house as much as we do!
Bonus: Those are all the things I love about Easter too!

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 May 10th

May Questions:
1) If you had a magic tree-house that could take you anywhere in the world where would you go?
2) Finish this rover, red rover...
3) What is your best childhood memory? (this could be funny since they're all still kids!)
4) What is your favorite part about nature and being outside?
5) What do you think Mommy would like for Mother's Day?

We really hope you will follow along and link up going forward!  As always, it will be on the second Wednesday of each month, on the following dates:

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