Dad’s questions, answers, and remarks indicated in black.

MacKayla’s questions, answers, and remarks in pink.

 

Q. Have you ever found a fossil?

A. I have never found a cool fossil.  I have found seashells in limestone gravel.  Even though I never found one I would really like to.  You know when I was little I wanted to be a paleontologist.  They study fossils and stuff like that from millions of years ago, it is pretty cool.

 

 

Q. What is your favorite toy from when you were little and what is your favorite toy now?

A. My favorite toy from when I was little was probably my Super Nintendo.  Me and your uncle bought some games for it and we pretty much played it all day.  Today I would say my favorite toy is my computer.  I can play games on it just like I did my Super Nintendo!

 

 

Q. Who is your favorite Mario character?

A. I think Yoshi is my favorite character.  I like that he is a dinosaur and he’s got that long tongue that sucks up bad guys and turns them into eggs.

 

 

Q. Who is your favorite Shopkin?

A. I don’t know many Shopkins really but my favorite one that I know about is Cheeky Chocolate.  I made your birthday cake last y ear into Cheeky Chocolate so he is my favorite one probably.  Who doesn’t love chocolate?

Q. If you had unlimited money, what would you do with it?

A. Buy food like spaghetti and tacos.  Oh and candy.  What else could I buy?

 

 

Q. If you could be the star in any movie, which one would it be?

A. There’s a movie Luke Bryan is in, I think it is Angry Birds I would be in that one.

 

 

Q. Do you think we are alone in the universe?

A. Maybe.  We don’t know.  No one has explored all of space yet and never will.  It is too big and too far.

 

 

Q. What one thing would you like to rid the world of?

A. Pretty much like jerks in the world and death.

Back With a Little Help

I started Parent Bucket back in 2013 with a vision to share with people the ups and downs and lefts and rights of being a parent.  I had a good run, however, as many know, being a parent and working full-time doesn’t leave much room for leisurely activities.

Fast forward three years.  My oldest daughter, MacKayla, turned eight.  She’s doing everything kids her age should be doing.  Going to school, getting good grades, and either unfortunately or fortunately (depending on how you look at it), has found the internet.  One of her latest obsessions is YouTube.  She thinks it is pretty cool that kids and parents record themselves doing whatever they want.  Playing games, opening new toys and displaying them, or just being silly.  I noticed she was really into these videos and I said to her “You know you don’t have to just watch people all the time, you can do what they are doing.  We can write stuff and record stuff and put it on the internet for other kids just like you.”  She looked at me and smiled and said, “Ok, well then lets do it then.”  So here I am.

I started back up the ole’ blog for starters.  She says she wants to be a content creator instead of a content consumer.  I think that is pretty neat.  Even her sister who is a bit younger is showing interest.  In this day and age, it has never been easier to share your story with anyone who is interested.  Even though it is not my first go around at this whole blogging and content creating thing (even if my first go around was a bit short lived), I believe it will be a great learning tool for everyone including myself.  Being able to market your personal self can greatly help in the future when trying to market your professional self, something I need more of.  I also think of this as a way to keep some pretty neat memories of our life “backed up” so to speak.  We will be able to look back years down the road and have a good laugh or two I’m sure.

So, with a little help, Parent Bucket is being resurrected.  We will be going at our own pace and writing and doing things when we can.  We would appreciate it if anyone reading this comes back and checks up on us once in a while.  You can always follow us on Facebook or Twitter.  It doesn’t cost anything and you may even get a chuckle or two from it.
