One summer day while I was driving to the beach with my
three children and a couple of their friends, the kids
started to get restless. As always, they started in with
the chant, "Ask us questions, Mom, and please ask us some
questions!" After all, it was their favorite activity
to pass the time while riding in the car.
We started to play the game and they loved answering the
questions. Some answers were right, some were wrong, and
they'd compete to see who could get the answers out the
fastest. After about 20 minutes I'd had enough, so I suggested
they do one of the mundane things I did as a child, like
looking out the window to count all the red cars that
drove by. But they didn't fall for that - they wanted
more of a challenge! So the whining began, "C'mon mom,
just one more question, please. Please just ask one more
That's when it hit me! I thought, wouldn't it be great
if I could just pop in a CD that would ask questions and
give the answers... wouldn't that be a parent's dream?
The kids would be learning while having fun, and I wouldn't
have to be actively involved - I could actually focus
on my driving and listen to them have fun! I searched
the market for such a product, but I couldn't find one
that was done in such a way that it would challenge my
kids. And so, I decided to develop my own and the Mr.
Quizmee Asks About series was born!
