112 Questions!

Me Ra Koh

Is how many questions Blaze asked from the moment we stepped into the airport, during our flight to LA, and then the wait for Uncle Shae-Shae to pick us up.
Blaze is a serious 3 1/2 year old. Can someone get daddy a coffee and mom a nap? πŸ™‚
112 QUESTIONS that went something like;
58. Can we get something to drink? (sure, Blaze, you and I can get something to drink, said Brian.)
59. Can we get something to drink for mommy and sissy? (of course)
60. Why can’t we get anything to drink for me? (we can)
61. Are you going to have something to drink? (silence from Brian)
62. You don’t want any thing to drink dad? (no, I do Blaze, I do)
63. Can you help me go to the potty before we get something to drink? (sure Blaze)
64. After I drink something, can you help me go again if I have too? (yes, Blaze. I chime in, “Blaze, we’re going to take a two minute break from questions.”)
65. Will you tell me when the two minutes is all done mama?
66. Am I in trouble mama?
67. Mama?…
When Blaze stopped asking questions he was trying to figure out 112 ways to put on his seatbelt. Click, unclick, click, unclick, click, unclick, click, unclick, ALL the way to LA. πŸ™‚


All in all, we had a great day traveling with the kids yesterday! They were pretty amazing, Pascaline knitted most the flight. Yes, knitted, and she’s six. She broke one of her knitting needles, so she took my suggestion to use chopsticks. And away she goes. That’s my 1/4 Korean daughter! πŸ™‚



Our house sitters are set, the cat is fed, the weather is looking “slightly” better for LA than what we left in Seattle, the kids slept through the night, Christmas is only days away, AND Blaze has Uncle Shae Shae to ask questions with!

Can I get an “AMEN”?

    I can completely relate, and I bet most of the moms reading your post felt as if they were reading their own. πŸ™‚ Maybe Pascaline can hold a knitting workshop! I’m still struggling after my 25 year effort to learn. A very Merry Christmas to your wonderful family!

  2. Dorian says:


    Thanks for you help yesterday in your very busy day.


  3. Amanda Mays says:

  4. Me Ra,

  5. Wendy says:

    Me Ra,
    That is a total crack-up! You are also a great story-teller! Love it! Aren’t 3 1/2 year olds great. I hope your family has a great holiday. I am glad to see you are blogging on the run.

  6. Sue Christianson says:

    I Love it!!! Blaze, you are awesome! I can only say that since my kids are older now! Have a Merry Christmas in LA!

  7. Airika says:

    I love it! Can you tell me when the two minutes is up?!? LOL. πŸ™‚

  8. Jen MacNiven says:

    So funny! I’ll give ya and AMEN! I guess a post like this only works with kids though…if it were an adult…not the same outcome as people saying “how cute”. LOL Quite the opposite I’m sure.
    Glad your on vacation now. Enjoy the holidays and Merry Christmas to you, Brian and the kiddos.

  9. Oh the joy of flying with Kids! I love the two minute time out from questions bit you tried. Hope you all have a fantastic vacation. You’ll have to check out some of my last blog posts. Pascaline may appriciate seeing what she will be able to accomplish if she just keeps at it. Not sure if chop sticks would cut it though! Also had a blast trying out tips from Carey’s post yesterday and Brian and your post a few months back. Merry Chritmas and remember to BREATH DEEPLY!

    Hi! I am a new reader to your blog and I love it so much already. I noticed where your son is named Blaze. My four year old son is named Blaze, also but what’s neat about this is we call him Blazey too. We got a lot of slack for naming our son this but now everyone loves it. I am so glad we chose it also as I cannot imagine him with any other name. Merry Christmas!!

    I can’t wait tot be a mommy!

    I find this hilarious especially since my nickname as a kid was millionquestions – everyone just called me that or questions until I was at least in jr. high school.

  13. Stephanie says:

    That post is too precious!! Bless you and your family the Christmas. I hope you all have a safe and wonderful Christmas and New Years. Thanks for everything!

  14. Jesse says:

    Yay, Pascaline! I’m so excited she’s knitting on the plane! We miss you already and are sending you lots of love this holiday season, friends!
