Flowers...and a meme for kids..















Before I get to the business at hand, I thought I would share with you a picture of the beautiful roses my S.O. brought me Friday night, "just because". What a sweetie! They are all opening up now and look lovely on my entertainment center. (smile)

Anyway, I stole this meme from Tricia's blog....it's not that the questions are all that new, it's that she asked her kids to answer them. So, I did the same with my four kids. So, sit back, relax, and read some very interesting answers to some traditional meme questions. Here are their responses:

3 THINGS THAT SCARE ME:

Joseph, age 16, high school junior - crowded elevators, large bugs, failure.

Rachael, age 14, almost 15, high school freshman - asthma attacks, change, the future.

Daniel, age 12, junior high grade 6 - other than Joseph? (laughs) dark places with no noise, when someone jumps out at you, very tight situations.

Aaron, age 6, 1st grade - beasts, wrestlers, bounty hunters. (Daniel has a new Star Wars Bounty Hunters game on his Game Cube.)


3 THINGS/PEOPLE THAT MAKE ME LAUGH:

J. -Will and Grace, my friends, my siblings.
R. - Becky, Alex, and Kameron (2 friends she's had since kindergarten, and her boyfriend)

A. - Mom, Daniel, and Joseph.

3 THINGS I LOVE:

J. - family, friends, musical theater.
R. - my family, my friends, music.

R. - mushroom, disease, HOMEWORK!
D. - spinach, homework, snotty people.

J. - politics, the New York Stock Exchange, Ms.Brown (last year's Spanish teacher).
R. - life, why people do what they do, and Daniel.
D. - certain parts of football, some jokes, and why I sometimes have bad luck.

R. - Spongebob, CSI, Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide.
D. - Spongebob, Ed, Edd, and Eddy, Drake and Josh.

Well, I don't know if I've amused any of you or not, but I know I've learned a lot about my kids. Week 1 of school was a success. I'll let you know how Week 2 goes. Have a great week, everyone!

That must've taken a long time! I was thoroughly entertained!

Well, I asked Daniel (12 yr.old) and Aaron (6 yr. old) all the questions, but I just gave a list to J. and R. to fill out. But it WAS fun!

I really enjoyed that. Thank you for sharing. Have a good second week back at school!

I love this! And, can I just say how jealous I am that your kids started school already? We still have 2 weeks, and the "nanny" i hired, as i found out today, decided she'd prefer to sit on her ass all day and read rather than actually play with the boys during the day. For this I'm paying her $400week?!

Sorry for the rant in your comments!

Cute meme idea. Isn't it amazing how different they are? Glad week 1 went well. I've still got 21 long days before both of mine are gone. Yep, three looong weeks.

HOW CUTE! Thanks for joining in! I couldn't stand waiting for mine to answer - so I gave each of them a question.

I was amused - thank you :)
