The Kids Behind The Blog, June 2016

It’s once again time to turn the spotlight to the girls for my favorite monthly link-up, The Kid(s) Behind The Blog. Once a month I have a sit down interview with the girls to ask them random questions and hope their answers don’t rat me out or cause DFS to come visit our home. I would like to point out that I STILL can’t believe that Emily said my favorite thing to do was take naps. I swear I hardly ever take naps!

The unfortunate part is this month’s interview results were compromised. I usually interview Emily first but Marissa was begging to go first and apparently Emily who was supposed to be playing in her room was actually listening in on our conversation. When she started saying the same exact answers as sister for some most of the questions, I became VERY suspicious.

Let’s take a look.

What do you like doing with Daddy?
Marissa // Going on bike rides.
Emily // Playing Memory

What was Daddy like as a little boy?
Marissa // Happy, He liked to play with Legos & look at cars.
Emily // Four? Happy. He liked boy Legos. 

Whatโ€™s Daddyโ€™s favorite food?
Marissa // Lasagna
Emily // Lasagna

What does Daddy do at work?
Marissa // Bring people the stuff they order.
Emily // Get people the things they need. Oh! He works on cars… wait no he doesn’t.

What is your favorite memory of Daddy?
Marissa // When we went to Springfield (See this post)
Emily // Springfield! Playing with my Minnie stuff with him.

So lesson learned, ALWAYS interview Emily first or use ear plugs on her. Maybe I need a sound proof booth?! I’ll see if I can work on that for July ;).  At least when I did ask her, she fessed up. You can see that in her interview video below.

Meet the hosts!
Crystal // Hall Around Texas
Beth // Our Pretty Little Girls
Meghan // The Adventure Starts Here
Jessica // Secrets of a SAHM
Stephanie // Wife Mommy Me

  • She is adorable. I found if/when I ask Hannah, Eli’s sister the same questions with him right there answering first, she will say the same things. But she is only two. Some questions are a bit difficult for her to answer so I skip over and pick and choose who to interview. Funny Emily. They did both get his favorite food though.

    • Yes EVERYONE knows his favorite food, lol. Emily started when she was young too. I keep thinking she’ll grow out of it but…

  • Amy Smith

    Oh Emily! ๐Ÿ™‚ What does Russ do for a living?

    • He works at Joplin Supply, a local building material provider. He bounces around that place from the counter to working in the warehouse. He used to drive a big truck and do deliveries too, but not anymore.

  • Super cute!! And yeah, anytime I’ve done interviews I also separate them!! I love the video idea!

    • I keep thinking I won’t always have to do this… but now I’m not so sure.

  • hahah too funny that she eavesdropped! Ear plugs! And, your Springfield post isn’t linked in the (see this post) bit. fyi =)

    • I KNEW I forgot to do something, thanks.

      Ear plugs may be a necessity, stinker.

  • I also have to make sure my kids don’t listen to each other’s answers!

  • haha, I do the same with my kids because Mini Fox would copy all of the answers if she heard them. I try to do them when the other one isn’t home or has no idea that I am doing it. And let’s see a DIY on a sound proof booth…like the ones you would see on Real World, hehe…dating myself huh?

    • EXACTLY!!!! Baha ha. So funny. I get you girl, I get you.

  • I’m so glad Emily clarified that Daddy played with boy Legos, because they are SOOO different than girl Legos! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • Baha ha. They have lots of Legos Friends sets so those primary colors of the others throw her off a bit.

  • Haha! I have to separate Lily from her older siblings if I want her to give her own opinions! I loved Emily’s answer for what Daddy does for work!

    • She is such a nut. Eventually they’ll stand by their own opinion, right?!

  • Desiree @ Macke Monologues

    Oh, Emily!! HAHA!! Next time you’ll have to use your shooting ears on her! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • I love that Emily “cheated,” haha. Too funny. But, still, great answers from your girls! I love that they said he was a happy kid.

    • She is a mess I tell you. This link-up is always so much fun though.

  • hahahaha!! so cute!! Lasagna for daddy!

  • Ha! What a clever girl to change Marissa’s answers slightly!! You gotta keep an eye in that one ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Haha I love that she was “inspired by” her sister’s answers! The videos are so cute!
    Xo, Evelina @ Fortunate House

    • “Inspired” Now THAT is the perfect way to say it :D!

  • Jessica

    The first answer was different. ๐Ÿ™‚ Emily is smart enough to know how to change her answers just enough to not be copying. You should be proud. Ha ha! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • So funny (and cute) that Emily copied. I’m sure when Autumn is old enough she will do the same.

    • You bet she will. Especially on the ones that she doesn’t know how to answer.

  • These girls… and Russ’ love of lasagna makes him a good man… yeah, that alone.

    • Baha ha! So funny. He LOVES lasagna so much. I need to make him some soon.

  • Meghan Flinn

    What was he like as a kid… 4! Haha, I love kids! And I’m cracking up at Emily eavesdropping!!!

    • I know, right. I have no clue where that came from. She is such a sneaky one. I have to keep a closer eye on her.

  • Puspanjalee DasDutta

    Just loved it. It’s a great idea to bring the kids on the blog!! I wish my son grows up quickly to be interviewed.๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Haha. Oh he will be there before you know it. Just blink twice :).

  • chall1018

    Marissa is so sweet and you can tell she’s digging for real and true genuine answers! Little sweetheart. And haha! Oh Emily! What a character she is. I love that she wanted to give you a hug after the interview!

    • I think that you have my girls figured out to a T :).

  • Whitney Jordan

    Cute, sneaky girls ๐Ÿ™‚ I love that you did this each month and seeing them on video is always adorable. I’m picturing the noise cancelling head phones from the Miss USA contests in your future haha

    • YES! That is so perfect. I’ll use my headphones that I take to the shooting range next time, lololol! Thank you!
