According to My Kids....


My friend Stephanie had this on her blog and I thought I should try it.

I wanted to try it because I was curious what my kids would say. I also

thought it might give you some added insight into who I really am.


According to my Kids.....


What is something your Mom always says to you?

-my 1o year old daughter: "Put your shoes/clothes away"

-my 6 year old son: "Clean up your room"


What makes Mom Happy?

-daughter: "When we obey"

-son: "Me being a good boy"


What makes Mom sad?

-daughter: "When we fight or if we don't try new foods"

-son: "Not being a good boy"


How does your Mom make you laugh?

-daughter: "When you are tired you are really funny!" {I must have been a real blast the past month being so tired with so many changes in my life and starting a new job!!}

-son: "When you make silly faces"


How old is your Mom?

-daughter: "Forty something"

-son: "20" {Do you see why I love him?}


How tall is your Mom?

-daughter: "6'2" {really??}

-son: "1 inch tall" answer was given with a huge giggle


What is her favorite thing to do?

- daughter: "Read and making us happy!"

-son: "Reading books"

My kids know me well. Just like Belle, my nose is often stuck in a book!


What does your Mom do when you are not around?

-daughter: "Read, clean or you are on the computer"

-son: "Crying for me because I left"


What is your Mom really good at?

-daughter: " You are a good Mom and are good at reading and cooking"

-son: "Helping me"


What is your Mom not very good at?

-daughter: "Drawing and being a bad Mom"

-son: "I can't think of anything" I must be perfect in his eyes! Ha ha!


How do you know that your Mom loves you?

-daughter: "You show us through helping us in things we plain can't do. You show affection

by encouraging us, tucking us in, and so many other things."

-son: "You give me hugs and kisses"


This was very enlightening for me; hearing what my kids thought about me. I can see

the good things that I am doing and ways to improve as a Mom. But I can tell they know that

I love them and will do anything for them. I challenge, you other Moms or Dads, to try this same little experiment; it may surprise you what will come out of your children's mouths.

  4. Why thank you Sara! I am tired a lot, so I guess that is where my continuous smile comes from. LOL! Thanks for the support!! :)

  5. A lot of people commented to me that they were scared to ask. I think most moms will find the answers aren't as scary as they thought and can actually be pleasantly surprised!

  6. I agree Stephanie, the answers are not only fun, but can be quite surprising in a good way! I am going to print off the whole questions and answers thing to make a cute scrapbook page. Thanks for letting me "blog" lift! :)
