If you saw my moms Instagram story, you know she’s having me (Poppy) write today’s post. I can’t decide if this is a good opportunity or my mom is just trying to find time to take a nap. Either way, I think that it will be a good experience to see what my mom does on the daily.
As you may know, I’m Poppy. I am 13 years old and the second child in my family. My mom is going to ask me a couple questions.
Q&A with POPPY
What is it like to have Avery as a sister?
Next question please!
What is it like to have Goldie as a sister?
Tiring, I love Goldie but sometimes the way she goes about life can be a little exhausting.
What is it like to be Ozzy’s sister?
Entertaining! You can read more HERE.
Do you wear eyeliner?
Haha, NO! I frequently get asked this question and I find it a little annoying. But I do use Super Hero Mascara, same as my mom and Avery.

What is the most annoying thing about your mom?
I would say her laugh but I think we have the same one. And that she doesn’t let us have sleepovers.
I got a few questions on why I don’t allow sleepovers and answered on Instagram story.
Here it is, again: this was a choice I made when my kids were little. I don’t judge anyone who allows them. Again, no right or wrong way to parent.
There are two main reasons. One, I’ve heard way to many horror stories from readers and friends about sleepovers. Are there kids and families I would trust? Absolutely! But I stick to a cousin only policy to avoid having to pick and choose who I allow. It saves feelings and also the argument with my kids as to why they can’t have a sleepover.
Second, when my kids stay up late and don’t get enough sleep, they have terrible attitudes and it totally kills the weekend vibe for the family. We compromise on late nights with friends, staying out or at our house till 10-11. We’ve managed 14 years with this rule. From the over 400 DM’s I received in the past 24 hours, 99% of you have the same policy in your home, many with traumatic past experience as children/teens from sleepovers.
My short answer for this question: it’s my rule and I stick to it. That’s all.
What is the best part about being a teenager in Encinitas?
Probably getting to hang out with my friends at the beach all year round. And also, taking surf PE instead of regular PE next year.
What is the hardest thing about being a teenager in 2018?
Personally, I don’t really think this but I know that a lot of girls my age struggle with trying to fit in with the so called “popular” group. The truth is that just because you hang out with the popular group doesn’t mean that people with change the way they think about you. My advice is, don’t become friends with people just because of their popularity because the friends who like you for you are the ones that stick.
What is your least favorite food?
My whole family likes shrimp but its not exactly something I would like to see on my dinner plate!
