77. Answering your burning questions as a family (Quarantine Edition)

Powered by RedCircle

Since we all have been home pretty much 24/7 recently self-isolating, we thought it would be fun to do a laid-back family episode for the podcast week. I asked on Instagram what questions you’d love for us to discuss as a family, and you all submitted such great ideas.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Our individual pet peeves (and Jesse schools us on the origin of “pet peeve”)
  • How the kids feel about fostering
  • One tradition the kids loved from when they were younger (their answer totally surprised me!)
  • A few favorite family activities while social distancing + favorite board games & a snack we all love
  • Whether the kids think they’d like to be homeschooled again
  • Some of the kids’ favorite books
  • Sibling rivalry —  what our kids argue over the most & how they resolve conflict
  • Our thoughts and feelings as we look forward to having two newborns soon
  • Where we’d like to travel to once it’s safe to travel again — my answer got a little deep and serious (I hadn’t prepped what I was going to say, so it kind of surprised me!)

Pull up a chair and enjoy a sitting in and listening on a very typical dinnertime conversation at our house (well, except I don’t usually come with a long list of questions!)
