Charity said, “Don’t touch the kettle.”
Keona said, “Have you changed the laundry yet?”
I’m not a slave driver… honest. She’s making $5 a week to do laundry. (she’s saving up for a new digital camera since they killed my old one)
What makes mommy happy?
Four of them said, “obedience”
Yes, obedience makes Mommy very happy!
Keona said, “When I do well on my tests.”
What makes mommy sad?
Three for disobedience, 1 for lying and Elijah said, “When I wrote that I’m not thankful for her.”
How does your mommy make you laugh?
Three say “tickling.”
Two say, “When she says something funny.”
I’m really not funny at all… :/
“A good girl, obedient, funny, crazy, and… crazy like me!”
Everyone got it right with, “25” except Keona, who said, “24.”
Elijah and Prayer said, “15ft”
Charity said, 5’8”
Eve said, “2ft”
Keona, played it safe with, “tall”
I think we’ll be working some more on measurements during math…
What is her favorite thing to do?
"Read her Bible, write on the blog, play…"
Elijah said more specifically, “play Mario cart Wii!”
Keona said, “Be with us.”
Ok, that makes up for the laundry comment.
“Rest, write on the blog, talk on the phone, play Scrabble with Dad…”
I also got, “Teaching, art, and ‘I don’t know’…”
What is your mommy really good at?
Good thing they weren’t there to see me lose by 80 points to Scott the other night!
What is your mommy not very good at?
Keona said, “She’s not very good at being not being good.”
Thanks, I think…?
What does your mommy do for a job?
Elijah says, “nothing”
I think he forgot about the whole cleaning thing….
“Teaches us, and watches kids”
One “mashed potatoes”
A “pepper” ???
What makes your mommy proud of you?
“When we do good on tests” and “When we behave”
Though Eve said, “When I put Ella to sleep” more about that on another blog…
If your mommy were a cartoon character, who would she be?
This stumped them all. “Ariel and Belle” ha!
Keona said, “She would never be a cartoon character. Just a Mom”
She knows me.
“Play Mario Cart Wii, play Scrabble, cuddle, read the Bible, and talk.”
