I found this fun list of questions to ask your kids over at my friend Mandy's blog. I was curious and wanted to see what my silly kids would say, so I decided to put my crew in the hotseat. Rod was at work, so I had to do the questioning myself, but I made sure to separate the kids so they couldn't steal each other's answers. Some of the answers were what I expected, some surprised me and some just left me laughing and scratching my head. Par for the course, I guess...
If your mommy were an animal, what kind would she be?
Will- a funny monkey
Izzie- a dinosaur
Julia- a kangaroo
Drew- a giraffe
Paige- a giraffe
--yes, the kids were separated and Drew and Paige each came up with a giraffe on their own. I don't think that any of these animals would be my first choice, but they are all animals my kids love, so I'll take them.
My mommy is as pretty as……………
W- a flower
I- a rose
P- a giraffe
-- Izzie's answer made me smile. Her middle name is Rose and I often say, "Isabella Rose is as pretty as a rose." I guess it stuck. As for Julia's, I do look like my Mom, so I guess that works. Paige's? Well, okay.
I love my Mommy because...............
W- you're the nicest Mommy in the world!
I- you feed me.
J- I like you.
D- I love you.
P- you are Daddy's wife.
--Will clearly knows how to sweet talk his Mama! Izzie, well she could take a lesson there. Guess I'd better keep the meals coming. Again, I'm not really sure where Paige's answer came from.
My mommy says the most important rule is……………
W- do not hurt anybody.
I- I don't remember.
J- go in the potty.
D- don't hurt people.
-- clearly, I have been refereeing quite a bit lately. Well, that and potty training. Also, I have to say this is not the first time Izzie has forgotten the rules around here :-)
What food does your mommy make best?
W- sloppy Joe
D- peanut butter & jelly
-- Yes, I am quite the gourmet. At least my lasagna got a mention!
My favorite thing to do with my mommy is……………
J- help wash dishes.
D- play puzzles.
P- play pretend.
-- Awww Will. I love hugging him too! The girls really do love to help me do things. I hope that desire to help and clean sticks around.
Nobody is better than my mommy at…………
I- making lunch.
J- writing people's names.
--After the question about my best dish, Will's answer is in debate. Maybe I should have given Izzie a snack before asking her these questions. She seemed to really have food on her brain. Julia's answer? Nope, no idea.
What makes your mommy laugh?
P- funny faces
-- All true answers.
Thanks to Mandy for letting me play along. I love to get a glimpse into my kids little minds :-)
