Oh Dear!  

Friday, 24 April 2009

Okay, so I was over at ‘who says 8 is enough’ (http://bouffard11.blogspot.com/2009/04/out-of-mouths-of-babes.html) earlier and her interview with her son was fantastic, it inspired me. I’ve been tagged on this one several times…so I got the kids to interview Deion on how he feels about me…(doing the sign of the cross and looking heavenwards as we speak) well, we were already on the subject or Deion embarassing me...so better to get it out of the way!!!

1. What is something mom always says to you?
“You can be anything you want to be” oh, and “do you need to do a poo before we go?”

2. What makes mom happy?
She likes cuddles and when I do well at school, she is very happy when someone wins a lot of money in deal or no deal.

3. What makes mom sad?
If we argue, if people drive like total idiots and if we fart or burp in a restaurant (making stabbing motions in my chest now)

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
By tickling, or pulling silly faces, or when she tells me something silly we saw in a film.

5. What was your mom like as a child?
I think she was very tidy and never answered her mum back, cos she tells us she would never have been able to get away with those things, and she always ate all her vegetables, even if she didn’t like them so she wasn’t ungrateful.

6. How old is your mom?
She’s 40 this year, but doesn’t want a party cos then she won’t be able to lie about her age.

7. How tall is your mom?
Very tall for a girl, but not as tall as dad.

8. What is her favorite thing to do?
She likes going to the park and she reads a lot of books, she writes on the computer, her favorite thing is to go on holiday and swim in the sea.

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
She drinks tea I think. (???)

10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
For writing a book and for killing plants. (huh?????)

11. What is your mom really good at?
Cooking, cleaning, shopping, making superhero costumes, and I think driving fast.

12. What is your mom not very good at?
Football, basketball, cricket, baseball, running, jumping, riding a bike, hoola hoop, skipping, rugby, high jump, long jump, skateboarding ice skating, roller blading, she has a bad aim, netball, volley ball, tennis, badminton (I had to shut him up at this point, I was getting depressed)

13. What does your mom do for a job?
She sells t-shirts and helps children go to the dolphins, but I don’t think she gets paid for that, she looks after us all, and she cooks a lot, I think she gets paid by my dad.

14. What is your mom's favorite food?
Chocolate cake (oh yeah!!!)

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
Ermm, she lets my friends come round and gives us lots to eat.

16. if your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?
Mum would want to be wonder woman but I don’t think so. (thanks Dee)

17. What do you and your mom do together?
We go swimming, watch films, play computer, she takes me to the park and visiting, we have to go to the bank sometimes, and shopping, we go to a lot of appointments and have picnics in the waiting rooms so I don’t get bored or hungry.

18. How are you and your mom the same?
We’re not really, she says I’m mad like dad!

19. How are you and your mom different?
She’s a girl silly, and, like, old! (thanks Dee)

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
She tells me every day, and she didn’t come to school dressed like wonder woman when I asked her not to. She makes me my favorite food.

21. What does your mom like most about your dad?
She beats him at scrabble (okay, this one’s true)

22. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?
Bimini to swim with dolphins.

You may laugh...you think its easy...but its not...I set you a challenge!!! if you're nerves are up to it, ask your child and let us know what they say lol!

    I did this with my four-year-old and quickly realized a lot of the questions were over his head. I look forward to doing it again next year just to see how his answers will change.

    I have to say it: either you were an angel of a child or you really have your kiddo hose over as to what type of child you really were. : )

    this was fantastic and so cute. I love it...mind if I copy I'm going to try to post Riley's answers tonight. Too Cute. I'm with you on the birthday...I think if you stop celebrating you can secretly swindle then that your a lot younger and they don't remember without a party to mark the event.

    This is a great idea. I wonder which child I will pick on for the answers...maybe I should butter them up with ice cream first!

    this is adorable... and see? i read it with a british accent (in my head) and it was just the most charming, sweet thing. even the bit about the farting!

    i did this with my youngest on video. it was a hoot. but he totally busted me about my tiny little habit of keeping up with soap operas.

    NO, it is a requirement, once children are old enough to talk, they are old enough to embarass you. My six year old told my mother-in-law exactly what I thought about her and her interfering last week and I'm not sure we'll recover. I am also not sure that is a bad thing.
