Ever wonder what your family thinks of you?
Ask them. I did. I got some clever answers. My answers and comments are in (*).
#1) What is something your mom/wife always says to you?
Roo: No (this is true I do say no a lot to him, you would too if you heard "can I have a cookie/treat/snack every 5 minutes.)
Butter: You love me
Hubby: I love you
(Good they are both listening! :)
#2) What makes your mom/wife Happy?
Roo: When I give you hugs. (true DAT. I do love me some Roo hugs.)
Butter: When I play nice with my brother. (also true. Nothing makes my heart sing like watching my children play nicely.)
Hubby: Quiet. (Oh , this man knows me.)
(I enjoy being around my family when there is no arguing going on...)
#3) What makes your mom/wife sad?
Roo: When I broke your book light. (Yes, that did make me really sad. I'm glad he remembers that...he is much more AWARE of touching things.)
Butter: When Sherri's (my sister) not being nice to you. (wise beyond her years.)
Hubby: Your Family. (Painfully true.)
(Rob got this one right. That and sin.)
#4) How do you know your mom/wife loves you?
Roo: You give me high fives. (I do. and Nugs and hugs and KISSES)
Butter: You play with my hair. (I was surprised by how true this is, Not a time goes by when she'll sit by me and I will end up stroking her hair.)
Hubby: The things you do for me. (Keep it clean ladies, he's talking make his lunch and leave him notes...not be his dessert.)
(I enjoy doing things for the ones I love, not to "get something in return" but because I have the time, energy and want to do it. I like being NICE)
#5) How does your mom/wife make you laugh?
Roo: Tickle me. (He is SO ticklish!)
Butter: When you say silly stuff. (I try.)
Hubby: When you act goofy. (Did I miss my calling? I should be a comedian!)
(I try to keep things light, I'll dance around or sing or make faces. I spend too much time caring about feelings...I'm working on loosening up.)
#6) How old is your mom/wife?
Roo: 59 (I couldn't understand him at first. Asking him to repeat himself only makes him angry, so I said 59? and he said yes. Ok then.)
Hubby: Right now or next week? 34.
(birthday coming up. My girl is well aware of our ages and will tell anyone.)
#7) What is your mom/wife's favorite thing to do?
Roo: Vacuum da fwar. (Vacuum the floor? HUH? I might bust it out weekly.)
Butter: Play with me. (This is part true. I can only handle it for so long, she gets really bossy.)
(Yes, I do enjoy reading...take me away...take me away.)
#8) If your mom/wife became famous, what would it be for?
Roo: Dressing up. (cool. Fashion!)
Butter: Numbers. (Umm, not quite the mathematician.)
(Hmmm, maybe writing.)
#9) What is your mom/wife's favorite food?
Roo: Salad. (LOL! Yeah if I ate more of those I'd be the perfect weight!)
Butter: Chili. (we just had it for dinner.)
Hubby: Spagetti. (Could be in the top 5)
(I can not believe my family didn't get this one! Hello! Desserts! That's it I need to get baking!)
#10) What is your mom/wife really good at?
Roo: Baseball. (I have no idea.)
Butter: Playing games. (As in board not head.)
Hubby: Raising kids. (AH! Not just our kids but kids. How nice to hear THAT!.)
(I am good at a lot of things one of the things I pride myself on is common sense and anticapation of needs. Oh, and being honest. I can cook a good meal, drive well. I bargin shop well. I'm organized. I could list a gazillion things.)
#11) If your mom/wife could be on a TV show what show would she be on?
Roo: Jon & Kate plus 8. (I do watch this a lot. So would I be Kate then or one of the kids? I should ask him...)
Butter: American Idol.
Hubby: The Bachelor. Wait your married. American Idol.
(Seriously?! I can't sing people. I would start bawling when Simon told me it was Horrendous. They wouldn't even let you sing in a Karaoke bar...As much as I love to WATCH AI I don't want to be on it. I would like to be on a soap. How fun would it be to live out THOSE crazy story lines?)
#12) How are you and your mom/wife the same?
Roo: Like to comb our hair. (He hates combing his hair! I have no idea...)
Butter: We have the same color hair. (sort of. I color mine and hers is a bit darker, but it's what she sees that matters.)
Hubby: Our values. (Oh very true.)
#13) How are you and your mom/wife different?
Roo: I have this hair and you that. (He has short hair. I have longer hair. What is it with him and hair?)
Butter: I have brown eyes and you have blue. (Well, bluish/green but ok.)
Hubby: I'm more easy going. (Yes. He is.)
#14) What does your mom/wife like most about you?
Roo: Hugs. (True. I could snuggle with this boy 22/7)
Butter: My sass. (also true. It may drive me crazy at times, but I sure DO love her spunk!)
Hubby: My work ethic. (Sort of. It's not my FIRST choice, but ok.)
(What I love about each of them is their ability to put up with me. I can be so crabby or sad and they never give up on me. Either with a hug or a comment or just listening they are always there for me. I love that we are a TRUE family. Nothing like the family I was raised in and much like the one Rob came from.)
#15) What is your mom/wife's favorite color?
Roo: Pink (Typical boy answer for favorite girl color, plus we were in my bedroom which is pink right now.)
Butter: Purple. (She's good. She knows her mama. I do love purple.)
Hubby: Red. (Yes. I like red too.)
(My favorite color depends on what we're talking about. Car: Silver. Shoes/clothes: Black. Food: Red. Flower: Pink. and my mood. I love looking at blue...water and sky. I love walking on green. )
#16) What is your mom/wife's favorite animal?
Roo: Polar bear. (Top 10.)
Butter: Panda bear. (She got it!)
Hubby: Tabitha. (our cat) With Paper a close second. (our dog). Oh wait, animal not pet...umm, leapord. (No. You should have stuck with the pets honey.)
(Buttercup knows her mama. I can only hope I know her as well!)
This was fun. I loved hearing what the kiddos thought. Butter was worried about having the "right" answers but I assured her there were none. But she does know me well and she is a good listener. Roo had some trouble concetrating, but he's four and boys can't sit still. Rob's answers are usaully right on but sometimes he'll catch me off gaurd and I rethink MY answer.
