The Kids Behind The Blog, June 2017

It’s the second Wednesday of the month and that means it’s time for The Kids Behind the Blog. Every month I take a few minutes to interview my girls. I love taking these moments to sit down and talk with them one and document the big and little things that they have to say. They always leave me with a smile on my face.

This months questions are about all things summer. Because, what else would they be about?!

Do parents get a summer break?

Marissa// Daddy doesn’t, but you kind of do. 
Emily// Daddy doesn’t, but you do!
Mom Thoughts// Man I wish Russ got a summer break!

If you could change your name what would you change it to?

Marissa// Moana, haha ha! (I guess she thought that was funny.)
Emily// MINNIE!
Mom Thoughts// Minnie, I KNEW she would say that. 

How much do you grow in the summertime?

Marissa// I have no idea. “Can you take a guess?” Maybe 1/4″???
Emily// I don’t know. “Can you take a guess?” Hmmmmm?!?!… No.
Mom Thoughts// My guess, 1″.

Would you rather go to the beach or to Disney World?

Marissa// I can’t decide between those two!
Emily// DISNEY WORLD! Because Minnie is there!!!
Mom Thoughts// I’m with Marissa on this one. Can’t I have both?!?!

What is your favorite kind of ice cream? Least favorite?

Marissa//Rocky Road! That’s really hard. I like all of them!
Emily// Mmmmm!!! Dipped cones (vanilla ice cream, chocolate dip)! Mint, yuck!
Mom Thoughts// I have never “met” an ice cream I didn’t like. I agree with Marissa.

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

Next months questions are…

What do you need to make s’mores?
What is your favorite summertime treat?
Would you rather fly in an airplane or ride on a ship?
How would you change the world if you could?
What comes after summer?

  • I love all the Minnie answers! And Mama is always working, #amiright?? I also can’t believe I forgot this month! I’ll have to post tomorrow!

    • ALWAYS! Although the older they get the less needed I feel….. #allthetears. Can’t wait to read your answers!

  • Heather Bramlett

    How did I know Emily’s answers would be Minnie?!!! 😉
    I’m with you and Marissa. I haven’t met an ice cream 🍦 I didn’t like either…

    • I also feel that way about donuts, lololol! She IS pretty predictable like that, eh?

  • Jessica

    Emily and Emmy are such kindred spirits. Emmy would have the same answers. 🙂 And I think Mommys never get a summer break because we are always working. I’m with you and Marissa and have never met an ice cream I don’t really like.

    • I don’t think I have ever met a donut I didn’t like as well, lol! Yes they are. Emily could tell Emmy all about her “adventures in Minnie Land” Whoooo! Girlfriend has quite the imagination.

  • Oh sooo funny!! Love summer break. Summer break for the dads too would be amazing!

    • Wouldn’t it though?! Russ gives us lots of eye rolls during the summer, lolol!

  • Lizzie Simantz

    Woohoo for summer!! I wouldn’t be able to choose between Disney or the beach either

    • It’s pretty much impossible. Disney should be on the beach. How perfect would that be?!?!

  • I wish my husband had the summer off too! I am with you on the beach and Disney! Both sound lovely 🙂

    • Yes! I am thinking Disney then the beach to unwind from the stress, lol!

  • I love their answers. I would have to go with both on the Disneyworld and beach question as well. And now I want Rocky Road! 🙂

    • You want Rocky Road, I want a donut…. where that craving came from, I have no clue . I am thinking Disney then the beach to unwind from Disney. Sounds perfect to me!

  • Gotta go with Disney and then call the kids Moana and Minnie!

  • I knew she would pick Minnie! Too cute! And I’m with you on choosing both the beach AND Disney World!

    • Picking just one of those two seems pretty impossible!

  • MINNIE!! Ohhhh Emily! I think we all saw that coming.

    • It seems like everyone knows her pretty well by now :P.

  • I am pretty sure there is a Minnie living inside that girl.

  • Whitney Jordan

    Sweet girls! Love their answers. Yes to all the ice cream, beaches, Disney and summer fun. You do such a good job of capturing their personalities in your pictures of them!

    • Aaaahhhh thank you so much friend. I was just looking back on old photos and realizing how much better my photography has gotten over the past couple of years.

  • Love those girls! Oh man oh man, I sure wish parents got a summer break as well! I love that Emily is still all about Minnie!!

    • It has been a 5 year and counting obsession friend. I can’t even believe her dedication to Minnie.

  • I love these, and surprise, surprise Minnie, hehe. I wish parents got summer breaks! I definitely need one!

    • It would pretty much be the best thing ever. Her Minnie answer surprised nobody, lololol
