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!)
