21 Questions I Asked My Kids...

Well, my kids and I had quite an interesting conversation today before nap time. You see, I had read about 21 questions to ask your kids over at Hey, Ho, Kelly Go and I thought I'd give it a try.

First, let me introduce you to Michael...
He's almost five and loves being Spiderman, Captain America, or a cowboy in no particular order and at any given moment.

This is Melody...
She's three and loves everything about being a "Pincence"...that's princess for those of you who don't speak "three year old" fluently. Other favorite things include having her nails painted and wearing her Tangled or Captain America Girl outfit.

Now that you have been introduced to the participants, here we go with the answers to their questions:

1.  What is something Mommy always says to you? (Oh, this should be good!)
     Michael:  "No" and "Yes"
     Melody:  "Obey!"

     Melody: to obey
    (Smart kids!!)

3.  What makes Mommy sad?
     Michael:  When I don't obey
     Melody: Disobeying
    (And here I thought they didn't understand about obedience...silly me!)

     (I just LOVE these kids!)

7.  How tall is Mommy? (At least it doesn't ask them how much I weigh)
     Michael: This tall (One hand at top of his head while the other is at his knees)
     Melody:  This tall (Standing on the couch reaching up as high as she can)

8.  What is Mommy's favorite thing to do?

     (I do?!?!?!)

     Melody: When she's happy when I obey

16.  If Mommy were a cartoon character, who would she me?

    (Wow! Never saw that answer coming.)

Needless to say, I thought their answers most enlightening. Hope you had a good laugh like I did. Happy Thursday!


  1. I think this is very cute when they're little. I would not dare ask my children these questions now! : )

  2. My Mom asked me if she should ask my sister and me these questions...but then quickly added she had thought better of it! I'm going to look for more to do with them. They really seemed to enjoy doing this. And I enjoyed seeing how their little minds work. :)
