I saw this cute little questionnaire going around on facebook and I thought I would do it for the blog. You ask your kids a bunch of questions about you and share what they had to say....
Just to give you some perspective on their answers...Ella is 5 and Catherine is 3 1/2.
Ella: I love you
Catherine: clean up
2. What makes mom happy?
Catherine: when we love people
Ella: not listening
Catherine: not listening
Ella: Tickling me
Catherine: tickle me
Ella: the same size as daddy
Catherine: this tall (holding up her pinkie finger)
Ella: read (oh yeah, she knows her mom!)
Catherine: clean up (hmmm...really Catherine? I must be a cheerful cleaner for her to think I like it that much. Or maybe that's why she makes so many messes - because cleaning up is my favorite thing!)
Ella: clean up (hmmm...if that were so the house would be a lot cleaner.
Catherine: work (does playing on facebook and reading blogs count as work? If so, she's right on!)
Ella: teaching (I'm really surprised that she would think that after I recently starting to work with her on some reading basics. I am so not a teacher!)
Catherine: cooking in the kitchen (don't I wish!)
Ella: reading (again, right on. I will admit it, I am a good reader. not something to be super proud of but I'll take it!)
Catherine: exercising (Catherine must have a good long term memory, because she can't have any short term memories of me exercising!)
Ella: raking leaves (why Ella, why? I really think I'm a good raker)
Catherine: cutting trees down (hmmm...I don't know what to say about this, except, I imagine she's right.)
Ella: be Cinderella (I think that must be referring to Cinderella picking up after everyone and working and not Cinderella all dolled up going to the ball.)
Ella: washing the dirty dishes
Catherine: when I do silly things
Ella: Sister Bear of the Berenstain Bears (this really cracked me up because she answered right away without hesitation)
Ella: read together
Catherine: play rough house (I think she got me confused with daddy on this one)
Ella: we have some of the same jeans
Catherine: blue eyes
Ella: She has a diff. finger nails than me
Catherine: I’m lower than her
20. How do you know your mom loves you?
Ella: because she snuggles with me a lot.
Catherine: because she is proud of me.
21. What does your mom like most about your dad?
Ella: I don’t know, but she’s always mad at him (Oh. My. What can I even say about this? Matt asked her this questions when I was gone so I didn't get to see how she said and if she was messing around. But wow. I thought about asking her for another one, but I figured I'd keep it real! No judging please! Even if she wasn't serious (I did talk about it with her later) I still better watch myself!)
Catherine: When she got married to him (oh thank you - I have no idea what she really meant by that but it just sounds so much better...)
22. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?
Ella: The Outlets (I hardly ever go, perhaps I talk about wanting to go?)
Catherine: To a Party (that's me, the party girl!)
