Wolf or Traditional Family Member?
WOLF. ’Cause once they’re yours, they’re family. Differences aren’t anymore.
Feelings on the Sleeve, Internal Explosions, or Don’t Sweat It?
FEELINGS ON THE SLEEVE. ’Cause everybody sweats somethin’ sometimes, and bottling is only fun if we’re talkin’ Diet Coke and Mentos. Better to get feelings out so you can work ’em out!
On Hunger Emotions:
Grumpy or Tired?
GRUMPY. Like Wolfie, I love to eat things all up! Unlike Wolfie, I get grumpy when I don’t! You know those Snickers commercials? Those are based on me.
Protective or Revengeful?
PROTECTIVE. Like Dot Bunny was, when Wolfie was threatened. Unlike Dot, I’ve never told a big bully I was gonna eat their toes. A shame. Think I’m too old now?
On New Situations:
Reject or Embrace?
EMBRACE. New is just somethin’ you don’t know is AWESOME yet.
Wing it or Stay on Schedule?
WING IT! Parenting is tough—tougher than an insistent bunny when nobody’s listening. Sometimes you gotta throw plans out the window. (Or dinner, if you burn it while you’re writing.) So long as you end on a “Good night! I love you,” you’re doin’ just fine!
On Sibling Rivalry:
Peace & Love or Bring it On?
PEACE & LOVE. But, I’m an only child—like Dot was before Wolfie arrived. I might’ve answered the other way if I wasn’t!
Wolfie the Bunny or Wolfie the Bunny?
WOLFIE THE BUNNY! Which was originally WOLFIE THE GNU. But Zach didn’t wanna draw gnus. (And I am totally kidding!)
Thanks for thinking quick with us!
THANKS for having me, Carrie! It was FUN!
