1. If you're out shopping and hear a baby cry, what's your first thought?

2. Are the passengers in your car required to buckle their seat belts regardless of age?

3. Do you ever feel the need to clean/straighten your loved ones? With your own spit?

4. Some people are described as having "a face only a mother could love." What people or things in your life do you love unconditionally?

5. In what ways are you like your mother? What habits, catch phrases, and tricks have you picked up from her?

1. If you're out shopping and hear a baby cry, what's your first thought? Poor thing is probably tired and hungry. Or bored!

2. Are the passengers in your car required to buckle their seat belts regardless of age? Yes, it is a safety issue.

3. Do you ever feel the need to clean/straighten your loved ones? With your own spit? Haha! Depends on where I am and what I am doing. If I am going to the grocery store and Aiden is filthy, I don't care too much. If we are on our way to church, and I noticed some leftover PB from breakfast, I probably will. You know, the whole look your best thing and all!

4. Some people are described as having "a face only a mother could love." What people or things in your life do you love unconditionally? Aiden and Steve, for sure. This new baby even though we have never met. Chocolate chip cookies, even though they make me fat.

5. In what ways are you like your mother? What habits, catch phrases, and tricks have you picked up from her? I heard myself say "oh crumb!" the other day and thought I would die laughing. That is definately my Mom's phrase! Honestly, I don't even know. My Mom and I get on each other's nerves a lot because we are so alike. When I had Aiden she came and stayed for three weeks. She taught me so much and I still call her for advice, and we got along great. She is coming to help with #2 as well. I thought about it the other day, and I thought as much as she drives me nuts at times, if I can be half as good a parent as she is, then I will be happy.

1. If you're out shopping and hear a baby cry, what's your first thought? Awww, Poor baby.... and poor mother....

2. Are the passengers in your car required to buckle their seat belts regardless of age? Always.

3. Do you ever feel the need to clean/straighten your loved ones? With your own spit? I am embarrassed to say yes. I do actually do this with Madeleine. Hopefully I'll learn to stop before she gets old enough to notice. lol

4. Some people are described as having "a face only a mother could love." What people or things in your life do you love unconditionally? Madeleine. And possibly coffee.

5. In what ways are you like your mother? What habits, catch phrases, and tricks have you picked up from her? I make a huge deal out of holidays... birthdays, christmas, etc. If there's a reason to celebrate, I go all out. So far I haven't started copying any of her little sayings. I'm sure that will come in time. I focus on Madeleine's imagination and do everything I can to help her expand it. My mom always did that with me.

1. If you're out shopping and hear a baby cry, what's your first thought? Aww, bless their little heart.

2. Are the passengers in your car required to buckle their seat belts regardless of age? Yes

3. Do you ever feel the need to clean/straighten your loved ones? With your own spit? Yes, unfortunately

4. Some people are described as having "a face only a mother could love." What people or things in your life do you love unconditionally? Just Marshall. I love him always and nothing will ever make that change.

5. In what ways are you like your mother? What habits, catch phrases, and tricks have you picked up from her? I say to Marshall "Do you want to go to timeout or do you want Mommy to take your toy away" whenever he is not listening and everytime I say it, it reminds me of my mother asking dumb questions like that because NOBODY WANTS TO "go to time out or have a toy taken away".
