Today’s ramblings are in response to Annie’s post over at PhD in Parenting earlier this week in which she invited us to “interview” our child about their mother (that would be me) and share the responses. So this evening I sat down and asked my daughter the questions below… She was a little hesitant after about the 3rd or 4th question, asking if this was for school or Sparks (lol). Anyways, you can now disregard all the info over on my Meet Wendy page as THIS IS THE TRUTH… according to Antonia.
What are mothers for?
Taking care of kids.
How are mothers made?
What ingredients are mothers made of?
Skin, blood, eyes, a nose and a mouth.
Why am I your mommy instead of another woman being your mommy?
Because I love you.
What kind of little girl was I?
You had long, dark brown hair, brown eyes and were wearing a black shirt with blue pants.
What did I need to know about Daddy before I married him?
To know if he was real.
Why did I choose Daddy to marry?
Because you liked him.
Who’s the boss at our house?
What’s the difference between mommies and daddies?
Girls have earrings.
What do I do in my spare time?
What would it take to make me perfect?
Wear pretty, long earrings with diamonds and lipstick and have long, pretty eyelashes.
If you could change one thing about me, what would it be?
Your eyes would be green like Daddy’s.
So there you have it… she thinks Daddy is the boss! I am going to have to have a serious talk with that girl! (where HAVE I gone wrong?)
I welcome you to join in the fun – ask your son or daughter the same list of questions and link back to this post. You can put the url of your post in the comments.
