I firmly believe that sometimes my daughter’s “listening ears” are physical parts of her body that she can remove and leave somewhere. Maybe we left them at daycare with her nap time bag. Maybe they got dropped off at the church library in the return basket accidentally. Maybe she was washing her hands in the bathroom and accidentally dropped them in the potty.
All I know is that the number of questions we’re asked on a daily basis exceeds my ability to count. But the repeat questions? The ones she’s already asked and I’ve already answered? Those are the ones that make me look at her and wonder what alien life form recently took over her body so that she was actually unable to hear my answer the first 50 times. Maybe I should WebMD it and see if it’s normal. NO. Do not do that that. I’ll go in to look for normal listening skills for toddlers and walk away sure that we’ve all contracted a terminal disease.
Since I’m pretty sure it’s a toddler thing, and hopefully a phase she’ll grow out of, we’ve started replying to her repeat questions with “asked and answered.” It’s her way of knowing she asked it, we answered, and if she didn’t listen to us the first time it’s not on us.
But I also thought it might be a fun name for something I wanted to try here. One of the responses I received on the survey I shared was that some of you might like to have the opportunity to ask me questions that I could either respond to with a blog post, or email you. Who knows, I might even respond in a video (because we’ve all seen how awesome I am at those. Ahem.)
So here’s your chance. I’ll add a page eventually to my site so you can find this later if you think of other questions, but for today if you have a question for me about blogging, working from home, social media, community building, virtual assistant stuff, being a working mom, where I went to college, what my favorite food is, or anything else you want to know that I could share with you, the floor is yours!
Fill out the easy peasy form, click submit, and I will figure out the best way to respond once I see your question (if it’s super personal I probably won’t write a blog post about it so be sure to leave a valid email address!). I love sharing what I know and what I’ve learned, so ask away, friends!
