Speaking with the Today Show, the country singer said she put her two sons to work on the farm helping with animals. Underwood said she has a variety of farm critters such as chickens and horses.
“We have chickens and they’ll go down and help us feed the chickens and collect the eggs,” she said. “We’ll go down and feed our horses and go fishing.”
She’s also given her oldest son Isaiah various household chores to complete such as helping his mother in the garden. So far the Underwood family has tried to embrace the outdoors during the pandemic.
“Isaiah has been helping me in the garden, That’s a new kind of hobby I’ve picked up and he’s been doing a great job helping me,” Underwood said. “We’ve been getting outdoors a lot, which has been great. I feel like I haven’t been in one place this long in the past 15 years at least, so the silver lining is that we’ve had a lot of family time.”
Carrie Underwood Also Made Arts and Crafts with Her Son
But it’s not all been work for little Isaiah. Underwood revealed her son’s recently got involved with arts and crafts. Underwood supports her son’s artist ambitions, but confessed she’s not very artistic herself.
“We’ve — uh — had our fill of crafts,” she said. “I’m the least crafty person. He wants me to help him and I’m like, I cannot draw. I can glue stuff? Or cut stuff out? But that’s about the extent of my craftiness.”
When not working on the farm, Underwood released a No.1 Christmas album called My Gift. In a separate interview, she discussed working with her son Isaiah on the “Little Drummer Boy.”
“I was in the booth with him. And trying to get him to access all his little 5-year-old emotions, which he can totally do on his own,” Underwood said. “When I heard the song back with his sweet little voice on it, I was laughing and crying. Just so many emotions,” she said. “I’m so proud of him.”
