I'm Back

Oh, I have been missing for awhile now! We have seemed to be extra busy around here, but when I try to figure out what exactly has been accomplished I can't seem to figure it out.

Anyway, I've been wanting to share this list of questions that my friend sent me on facebook. There are 22 questions to ask your children and they are all about YOU. I brought my 4 oldest in the room one at a time to answer the questions and typed them in. It was really quite funny to hear their answers. I was thinking it would also be a fun Mother's Day gift if Dad got the kids to answer them without Mom knowing.

So here's what my kids really think of me...

1. What is something mom always says to you?
A7-I love you.
G8-Do your cursive and your math. (This is so true, I say it at least three times a day to both G8 and A7.)
E5-I love you.
H3-I love you.

2. What makes mom happy?
A7-whenever we do something without her telling us to.
G8-when we do what she says.
E5-she really likes seeing me, because when she leaves she really wants me. (I nearly fell off the chair after this one, he was so serious. I always tell the kids, "I missed you while I was gone" when I come home from's funny how they interpret things.)
H3-when I draw a picture for her.

3. What makes mom sad?
A7-when I don’t help her.
G8-when we disobey her.
E5-when people hit each other.
H3- when I don’t let her watch tv. (This is because I always get stressed out when I am trying to watch a television show and all 204 of my children are running around the living room and asking me questions.)

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
A7-whenever she tells us a really funny story about her life. (Um, okay? I can't recall ever doing that.)
G8-when she sings a funny song. (I actually do this all the time.)
E5-she tickles me a lot.
H3-she tickles me.

5. What was your mom like as a child?
A7-she was nice and she had a lot of animals. (This implies I lived on a farm or something. Actually, I had a dog and a bird and we had 3 dogs at my dad's...this is a lot of animals to the child who has none.)
G8-she worked at a whole bunch of jobs. (We had recently had a conversation about what type of jobs I had before I had all of them to take care of.)
E5-she was like a girl. (He knows me so well.)
H3-she had a pretty shirt on. (Apparently this is in reference to a picture.)

6. How old is your mom? (I'm 26.)

7. How tall is your mom? (I'm 5 ft. 10 in.)
A7-10 feet tall
G8-about 6 feet
E5-I think three feet tall.
H3- 500 feet
(I'm so glad a weight question wasn't on here.)

8. What is her favorite thing to watch on TV?
A7-Gilmore Girls
G8- Gilmore Girls
H3-Gilmore Girls (This show comes on every day at 5pm and with this pregnancy that has been the precise time that my by body gives out on me. I collapse on the couch in front of the tv for an hour and watch the Gilmore Girls.)

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
A7-sew a lot (Not so, but I had recently been doing some sewing.)
G8-she’s on the computer. (This IS you know.)
E5-she usually takes a shower. (???)
H3-watch tv. (This is only true Feb.-April when the new seasons of American Idol and Lost come on.)

10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
G8-scrap booking
E5-I’m thinkin’…movie star. (lol!)
H3-for being a Mommy (I figure this is the most accurate as my only chance of fame is if some reality show comes knocking at my door wanting to film me and my gazillion kids.)

11. What is your mom really good at?
A7-cooking (That's sweet but REALLY not true.)
G8-Do you want me to just give you one? (Awwwwww! I, of course, replied, "No, say them all!!!") sewing and scrap booking
E5-she’s really good at teaching.

12. What is your mom not very good at?
A7-remembering our names (:o))
G8-Wii Boxing
E5-all of the maths.
H3-the dance game

13. What does your mom do for her job?
A7-take care of us
G8-home school
E5-her job is scrap booking (I sell Creative Memories.)
H3-to help us do homeschool

14. What is your mom's favorite food?
E5-I guess vegetables
H3-salad (I like all foods...I'm not sure why they all said salad except that I apparently like it more than they do.)

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
A7-whenever she finishes something she had a hard time doing.
G8-she watches us
E5-letting me do my math
H3-helping us do homeschool

16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?

G8-home school
E5- home school

18. How are you and your mom the same?
A7-both like animals
G8-We both like to read.
E5-we both like the color green.
H3-we like to play

19. How are you and your mom different?
A7-She likes salad and I don’t.
G8-she’s older, I’m younger.
E5-“I’m really funny and you’re kind of funny…nooo…I don’t want to tell the WORLD that!” (He's a hoot.)
