So THAT'S What They Think of Me!

I copied this cute idea from my sister-in-law's blog. Copy this note, ask your kid(s) the questions and write them down exactly how they respond.

It's kind of fun to get this kind of perspective. :)

1. What is something I always say to you?
Kaitybean: Good night.
Scud: Hello
Mashuga: You love me and I'm so cute.
Coc0: Bird

2. What makes me happy?
Kaitybean: Me getting my jobs done and hugs and kisses.
Scud: Seeing your children.
Mashuga: When I come home from school.
Coc0: Happy!

3. What makes me sad?
Kaitybean: This one's hard. You're very slow-tempered, that's for sure. It's pretty hard to make you sad.
Scud: Me ripping up your flowers.
Mashuga: When I don't obey and I don't clean my room.
Coc0: Sad.

4. How do I make you laugh?
Kaitybean: When you tell me stories of your childhood.
Scud: I don't really know.
Mashuga: I don't really know.

5. What do you think I was like as a child?
Kaitybean: A little bit quirky. A space case like you are now. Sweet and gentle. Definitely fun.
Scud: Sad, lonely, watching Sesame Street.
Mashuga: Small and cute and loving.
Coc0: You!

6. How old am I?
Kaitybean: 31?
Scud: 30
Mashuga: About, like, 30.
Coc0: Look, a fly!

7. How tall am I?
Kaitybean: About 4 1/2 feet.
Scud: I'd say about 5 foot 2.
Mashuga: About 5 feet tall.
Coc0: You.

8. What is my favorite thing to do?
Kaitybean: When you can get away from us, sleep.
Scud: Garden.
Mashuga: Just cuddle down with me and love me.
Coc0: Mommy hug me.

9. What do I do when you're not around?
Kaitybean: I don't know. I'm not around you when I'm not around.
Scud: Party.
Mashuga: Cuddle down with Coco and love him.
Coc0: Laughs...

10. If I become famous, what will it be for?
Kaitybean: Singing.
Scud: Paying me thirty dollars a week.
Mashuga: I can't think of anything.

11. What am I really good at?
Kaitybean: It's not personal, it's just a fact. You're good at changing Coco's diapers. I'm no good at that.
Scud: Feeding.
Mashuga: Loving and cuddling down with me and loving me.

12. What am I not really good at?
Kaitybean: That one's tough. I just really can't think of any.
Scud: Playing games which you don't understand.
Mashuga: Being mean.

13. What is my job?
Kaitybean: Mothering.
Scud: To be my primary caregiver.
Mashuga: To stay home and love your siblings. (Do you mean my kids?) Yeah.

14. What is my favorite food?
Kaitybean: Cake.
Scud: I don't know. Lettuce?
Mashuga: Healthy food.

15. What makes you proud of me?
Kaitybean: I'm not the only space case in the family.
Scud: When you make lasagna.
Mashuga: Cause you always cuddle down with me and love me.

16. If I were a cartoon character, who would I be?
Kaitybean: Woody Woodpecker
Scud: Hmm... Daffy Duck
Mashuga: I'd hafta say... Garfield!

17. What do you and I do together?
Kaitybean: Well, we've watched Twilight lately.
Scud: Watch movies while being lazy on the couch.
Mashuga: Clean my room.

18. How are we the same?
Kaitybean: We're both Nacnuds.
Scud: I have brown hair. You have brown hair.
Mashuga: We have ears, mouths, nose and a neck.

19. How are you and I different?
Kaitybean: I like Twinkies and you hate them.
Scud: I'm a boy. You're a girl.
Mashuga: We have different color hair and we're different sizes.

20. How do you know that I love you?
Kaitybean: You take care of me. And you say it a lot.
Scud: You give me allowance. You feed me. You buy me presents for Christmas and for my birthday and you don't make me your personal slave.
Mashuga: Cause you cuddle down with me and love me.

21. Where is my favorite place to go?
Kaitybean: Bed.
Scud: I'd say your room.
Mashuga: Home from a store to see your siblings. What I mean by siblings is, like, your kids.

oh i love it. i love coco's responses they make me laugh and i know why the stoped after a while. i did this with my kidos like 6 months ago and it was like pulling teeth to get any answers out of them. you can really tell you have older kids then i do with the first 2 kids replyes they actually spent time to understand most of the questions. and the awnsers totaly fit their individual personalities. i love it cant wait to see you all on sunday.
