One of my blogger friends is pulling together a Mother’s Day post. To participate, she posed a series of questions for our children to answer about us.
I gave the list to Hubby for him to cover with the girls, one at a time, while I took a shower yesterday morning. I was planning to head upstairs…but I couldn't help but perch on the steps to listen to the girls’ answers…they just cracked me up!
If your mommy were an animal, what kind would she be?
[I think the idea of a mama lion is pretty fitting. And while I wouldn’t normally be happy to be called an elephant, I guess I’ll take it since that’s B’s favorite zoo animal these days.]
What is Mommy’s favorite TV show?
[We don’t watch TV in front of the girls, so they would have no clue about this. I thought they would say “weather”, since I’ve turned on the radar a couple of times during storms. Soccer is Daddy’s favorite thing to watch…not sure about elephants!]
My mommy is as pretty as……………
A: Baby A
B: Baby B
[Hahaha! They think a lot of themselves and/or me, I guess!]
I love my Mommy because...............
A: I just do! (followed by a fit of giggles)
B: of Sasha
[Sasha is our cat…no clue what she meant!]
My mommy says the most important rule is……………
A: to sleep!
B: to sleep!
[Yes, yes, YES!!! Now, if they would just heed that rule!!!]
What does your mommy do while you are napping?
A: files stuff
B: files things
[This cracks me up! I do sometimes file, but I wouldn’t classify myself as a chronic filer, or anything!]
What food does your mommy make best?
B: sweet potatoes
My favorite thing to do with my mommy is……………
A: play with her
[Awww…be still my heart!]
Nobody is better than my mommy at…………
A: making eggs
What makes your mommy laugh?
A: Laughing at me.
B: When I do something funny.
On top of hearing their super-sweet answers, a nice visit downtown and a good lunch together...the girls napped for almost TWO HOURS yesterday...during which I took a nap for MORE THAN AN HOUR!!! Happy Mother's Day to me, indeed!!!
And Happy Mother's Day to my many wonderful mommy friends who inspire me every day.
