Were you a good student in school?

What is the most memorable moment of high school?

What is your most embarrassing moment?

Were you a good student in school? I was a straight A student all through 8th grade. I took the SAT's in 7th grade and did better than 85% of high school seniors. I was the kid the teacher always used my assignment as the example of how it was supposed to be done. Then in 9th grade I just decided I hated school. It was boring. I dropped out at 16.

What group were you in during high school? (nerd? popular? jock??) I was a rebel, did what I wanted to while I was there, I drank Mad Dog 20/20 in my 1st hr math class and pissed off my teacher when I corrected him. I smoked cigarettes walking down the hallway and skipped school. I fought a lot.

What is the most memorable moment of high school? I guess having a beer party on the football field during school

What is your most embarrassing moment? Probably getting nominated most likely to get suspended for the yearbook. I didn't care then, but now I think its embarrassing.


**disclaimer** My mom was very sick when I was growing up, we moved when I was in 8th grade. I had a lot of issues as a teenager. I got over them as soon as I got pregnant with my oldest.

How did you meet DH?
How did you tell him you were pregnant with your first?

Do you have a lucky number?

How did you meet DH? We aren't married and he isn't the father to the first six, but we met a few years ago when I was underneath a van in front of my friend Dave's house taking a muffler pipe off. Dave is a mechanic and I was working with him. I actually went to school for a little bit for Auto Tech but...guess what....had a baby and stopped. Anyway, he (SO) came over to meet the girl (me LOL) who'd climb under vans to work on them.

How did you tell him you were pregnant with your first? I gave him the test and told him Merry Christmas


Do you have a lucky number? Hahaha....yep, 13...I am strange aren't I

Your stories are great!!

What do you do to relax?

Where would you go on a dream vacation?

What is your favorite part of the day?

UrbanMomma September 8th, 2009 11:21 AM

Re: Our MOTW is Jenifer (UrbanMomma)
 
What do you do to relax? I read, I love to read. I read when I wait on kids, like at football practice or Young Marines. I love to bake too, huge, complicated desserts. The more elaborate the better.

Where would you go on a dream vacation? I don't know. I have never been anywhere. Ohio...LMAO. There is probably plenty to see right here in "good 'ol Michigan". Ya know I live 15-20 minutes from the bridge and I have never been to Canada. Anyway. I'd love to go somewhere tropical but not touristy...if that kinda place exists.

What is your favorite part of the day? I just love the parts of the day when we all get to hang out here and do nothing really. Maybe just BBQ and eat and watch silly movies. I love to watch silly movies with my two oldest sons, dumb movies....like we are gonna watch Dance Flick this weekend. It always seems like the days are so hectic and life is racing past us. My "babies" aren't all babies anymore and two of them look like grown men! I like the slow days the best!

WHat was your inspiration to have a big family :) ?

UrbanMomma September 8th, 2009 02:29 PM

Re: Our MOTW is Jenifer (UrbanMomma)
 
Where did you grow up? Livonia, South Lyon, Detroit MI

How old are all your kids? Isaac is 14, Aaron is 12, Elijaah is 10, Naathaniel is 8, Laliyaah is 6, Nazaaria is 3, Isaiaah is 2 and Maarquay is 8 months. **note** in my siggy Aaron and Elijaah are switched, I didn't notice for about two weeks after the siggy was made for me, so I just left it.


WHat was your inspiration to have a big family ? I just believe my kids are all meant to be.

Why do you like "a" so much. Cool names! But them is a lot of a's!

What do you want for your kids in their adult lives?

What do you think the next one will be named? How about Naahum if a boy? That is an old Jewish name. (pronounced Nay-um)

LOL...it wasn't really intended until Elijaah. I just liked Isaac, then named Aaron after me (mn...Erin), realized we had an accidental double a, so I added an extra a to Elijah, then just had to keep going with it after that.

What do you want for your kids in their adult lives? Happiness, stability, love, success (and I don't mean money necessarily, just to succeed at (most) whatever they attempt), contentment.


What do you think the next one will be named? How about Naahum if a boy? That is an old Jewish name. (pronounced Nay-um) Not bad, maybe too close to Naathaniel, but it couldn't be much closer than Isaac/Isaiaah, huh? Ya know I didn't want Maarquay, I wanted Maarcus, his dad didn't like it, said it was too plain. I wish I had insisted upon Maarcus. I have a feeling this is a girl. Maybe Evaani (or Avaani) J'Nessa. Not too sure what a boy wold be. I have always LOVED Obadiaah.

Do you have any pets?
Can I come to your house for dessert?
Can you post a pic of your kids altogether?

UrbanMomma September 9th, 2009 07:46 AM

Re: Our MOTW is Jenifer (UrbanMomma)
 
Do you have any pets? A ball python, a bearded dragon and an iguana

Can I come to your house for dessert? Sure, anytime you are hanging out in the metro Detroit area.

Can you post a pic of your kids altogether?Sure, it's from February though at their cousins bday party so it has my two nieces and two nephews in it as well as my kiddos. I don't have a digi camera so I don't get many new pics on the computer, also for some reason they won't resize, so they might be gigantic.

Oh I wanted to say the oldest son is quite a heart throb!

Do you believe in arranged marriages? :D

UrbanMomma September 9th, 2009 05:16 PM

Re: Our MOTW is Jenifer (UrbanMomma)
 
What's your favorite holiday as an adult? Thanksgiving!! I LOVE to cook!!!

What was your favorite holiday growing up? Christmas, of course. As an adult I am not particularly fond of it and am referred to as "Momma Scrooge" by my kids.

Who are you closest to in your family? My mom!

An arranged marriage could work...LOL. He is a pretty nice young man. He's a Young Marine, plays football and basketball, tries hard in school, is very respectful, does yard work for older people in the neighborhood for his own spending money and does lots of volunteer work! He also changes, feeds and takes care of babies...rare, I think, in almost 15 year old boys!

PERFECTO! My oldest daugther is 14 years old, and is exactly as you describe your son. And yes, you have a gem for a son because my 15 year old would not dare change his sister (maybe it will change when I have my baby boy in Jan!).

You're not too far from us either, like what, a two and a half hour drive or something? LOL! I am so silly! :D

How old were you when your first was born?

Did you ever play an instrument?

What is your favorite color?

What is your favorite food? You like to cook so that could be a hard question ;) LOL...
