Stepping Out On A Limb Here…

I never know what to say about myself.  Yet I wanted to join the “five things about me” party at My Cup 2 Yours.  So I got to thinking, What if someone at school walked up to my boys and said, “Tell me about your mom,”  what would they say?  

I realize that by actually asking them that question, I’m walking WAY out on a limb twig here.  But now that I’ve wondered, I can’t tame the curiosity tiger. My three boys 1

So, instead of letting them wrestle the night away, I asked them to give it some thought.  The following is a list of their answers. 

(The 12 year old interviewed the five year old.) 

My 12 year old son’s list: (He just informed me that he is over 12 and a half, and technically, I should be saying he’s 13 years old.  I love having him watch over my shoulder.)  Anyway, the list…

  • Nice (sometimes)
  • Likes cleanliness (and deodorant)
  • Hates Star Wars
  • Likes Chick flicks
  • Good blogger (Aww, that’s a sweet thing to say!)
  • computer freak!! (Freak?)
  • Pet peeve is teenagers (Really???  Well, they do tend to baffle me at times…but I love them.  Honest.)
  • Cool (sometimes)  (I like the qualification, Lol!)
  • oh, and a little out of whack.  (What?? What’s that supposed to mean?  Oooooh, he’s telling me it’s teenager language.  I told you they baffle me.  Can any one help me here?)

My 10 Year old son’s list: (the man of few words, but a big heart)

  • Very nice
  • Intelligent (I’ll take that!)
  • Tall
  • Loves computers
  • Happy

My 5 year old son’s list:

  • Smart, but mean
  • Sometimes happy
  • Way more cooler than Sid (The Science Kid) (Be still my heart!)
  • Skinny (He’s definitely my favorite child)
  • Lovely
  • Kisses you a lot (Lol!)
  • Cares about you all the time (ABSOLUTELY!)

My three boys 2

I love my boys.  Seriously.  They’re wild and crazy and I wouldn’t trade them for the world. 

They also just helped me out with my Five Things About Me post for Talking About Thursday!   The only thing I might add is that I love Jesus, want to please Him, and fail a lot. 

I’m so glad you stopped by!

Adoption Mama said...

Your boys sound way, too fun.:)

Isn't mothering great?

Thanks for stopping by the Ponderosa.

I'd print their answers out, have them "decorate" their piece and then frame them! :)

RR Mama said...

Thanks for stopping by, it's nice to meet you too. I love your list. I never thought to even let my boys make one. Guess I'm to scared of what they might say. Like Mom freaks out all the time. Hope you have a great day!!

How fun to learn more about you! I'm so glad you joined in today, and I love the fact that you interviewed your kids.

How great to be classified as a "cool" mom by your kids. And a great blogger...yes! :)

Thanks so much for joining in today!


Lisa said...

I like how you asked your kids, that's cool:)

Also any child that says I'm skinny is automatically the favorite!!

Christie Lanning said...

I love that you asked your kids, and they sure did have some cute responses. This'll be a something to keep forver!

Annie said...

Haha, great way to meet you. I like the kids list.

Have a nice day.

Stopping from My Cup 2 Yours.

PS: I became a follower of your blog.

Ha ! my sons are 13, 10, 7 and I had to laugh at your lists. I suspect my sons would say very similar things!

KellieS said...

I love your creative twist on the 5 things about you. Kids are so honest and thoughtful. Be proud of those babes!

Nice to meet you...

Be well,
