Q & A...with Stephen

Today I'm doing things a little differently, and I'm bringing one of my babies on the blog to answer some fun questions. I'm planning on doing these a little more periodically, because I just love learning little things about my babes, and I know that Stephen will be so excited for me to share his responses.
Today I'm asking this boy these questions...

A few things to note about Stephen before we dive into his answers.
He's our big-hearted firstborn, who loves all things basketball and sports! Basketball is life, and there is no changing his mind any time soon. He's super smart too when it comes to school work. He may be lacking in the organizational side of it, but they often say that brilliant people are often a little disorganized. He's super serious nearly always, but he can cut up with the best of them! He has that dry sense of humor, and the boy loves puns just like his mama. He may look so much like Joe, but he and I are alike in every way as far as our personalities go. He cannot stand injustice at all, and he needs wrongs to be made right immediately. I love his heart, but I just love to watch his little mind work, whether it's solving all the world's problems or just figuring out fractions, he never ceases to amaze us.

Now let's get into his answers!

What is your favorite food?

Tacos -  specifically crunchy tacos with ground beef, cheese, and lettuce, and when you put that together, they're so good.

If you had a million dollars, what would you do?

1. Buy a big ole mansion with a basketball court.
2. Go to all the basketball games with front row seats!

What is a friend?

A friend is kind & respectful & making them feel good about themselves...oh, & being cooperative!

What 3 words describe your family?

1. out-going
2. respectful
3. super

What is love?

Being kind.....uhm, I don't know!

If you could have any super power, what would you choose and why?

Reading minds, so I would always know what my brother is up to!

What are you good at?

Basketball and school...fractions!

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

Hawaii with all my friends and family!

What is the worst smell in the world?

Skunk Spray!
(haha, you might live in the country if...)

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A famous basketball player, but my back-up plan is to be a doctor. Mom thinks a dermatologist!!

What this little q & a session with Stephen showed me is that he loves basketball, school, and his family & friends. He's my little All-American kind of boy, and I just can't wait to see what HUGE things he does. He's a total game & world changer. 

You can do major things, boy of mine. Keep loving Jesus & your family. Keep your nose in a book, and always dream bigger than possible. Remember to treat everyone the same, with tons of love and respect. We are so very proud of you, Stephen...my sweet, smart boy!



  1. Oh my gosh, what a super fun post, and how awesome to have this to look back on someday, Britt!

  2. What a great post! I want to do more videos with my girls with stuff like this and post on my YouTube channel. If only I would've done it when they were smaller. Thanks for sharing! Stephen is a great kid!

    1. I may venture into videos next time, but for now, this was so fun.

  3. I love this and I think him and Solon would be good friends. Basketball and tacos are high on Solon's list too :)

    1. I agree completely!! Those two are high on my list of favorites too!

  4. Such a great interview - he did so well! That toad photo got me for a second time - I thought he was holding poo again, haha! I want C to be a dermatologist too - how awesome would that be for US? He eats lettuce - who did you wangle that? Love the fact basketball is such a passion of his... and he describes his family as SUPER -like the Incredibles! Great post xx
