One Of Those "Ask Your Kids" Surveys

An opossum got hit right outside our
house, so we had a lesson about
animals and death and roadkill
I should try to blog more often, but I really don't have anything to say! I mean, unless you want to hear about how I let the laundry pile up. Well, I suppose a few things have happened. Jayce turned 4 in September, and we moved to a new house. I guess that's significant. Both kiddos are doing fantastic, and love their new home. I love it too, especially since it's bigger and has a fireplace. It's a stately old home (1904) and we are loving the smaller town and quiet-ish neighborhood.

This morning, sitting in front of the fireplace, my kiddos and I watched YouTube videos about otters, and then somehow they were asking about eyeballs. Science was not my forte, so my explanation was fairly sketchy. To transition to a safer topic, I began one of those surveys where you ask your kiddos random questions and inwardly chuckle or grimace to yourself at their answers. Some their answers were spot-on, and some were a little humorous. I'll share.

1. What is something I always say to you?

Son: Flat my bed (Make the bed)

Daughter: Tigers (Tae Kwon Do Tiger program)

2. What makes me happy?
Son: When I snuggle with you

Daughter: Obeying and do the right thing

Son: You like turtles

Daughter: A baby

6. How old am I?

Son: I don’t know

Daughter: 3

Daughter: A little bit short

8. What is my favorite thing to do?

Son: Go on a walk

9. What do I do when you’re not around?

Son: You take care of your own self

Daughter: Stay by yourself

10. What am I really good at?

Jayce really does enjoy working in the kitchen, and he's getting pretty good at washing dishes himself.  He made a muffin mix almost all by himself, and did a pretty god job! Anya is a little nurturing mama, and I love seeing the compassionate side God gave her.
