Twitter has Follow Fridays, recipe sites have Menu Mondays... I think it's time that us mommies start Tell Me Thursdays! It's easy enough to play, just copy and paste the questions, fill in your answers, and post as a comment. This is a judgment-free zone, so be honest and have fun. Let's hear it, mommas!
Since this is our first installation of Tell Me Thursdays, I'll start with a basic introduction:
1. Your age: 27
2. Your child/ren's age(s):
Avery (2-1/2), Baby #2 arriving Summer 2011!
Work-from-home HR Consultant and Editor
4. Favorite thing to do when your kids are napping or at school:
Knitting sweaters that my daughter will never be caught dead in.
5. Least favorite kids' TV show and why:
Three-way tie between Imagination Movers (I hate when adult actors 'dumb it down' for kids); Yo Gabba Gabba (watching that show makes my brain leak out of my face); and Max and Ruby (who are we kidding here? Ruby is a jerk).
Yo Gabba What?
6. Your mommy guilty pleasures:
Catching up on trashy celeb gossip, any books by Jen Lancaster, and MTV's Teen Mom.
7. Funniest or most embarrassing thing your kid(s) said or did today:
I yawned and Avery asked, "You tarded, Mommy?" I've tried to correct her pronunciation of 'tired' several times, but I'm hoping she just grows out of this one.
8. What about parenthood still makes you cringe (be honest):
I still don't handle vomit well. The word alone makes me queasy. Now, poop? I can do poop. I am the Special Forces of poop.
9. Proudest mommy moment:
Watching Avery request hugs from her relatives and saying "I love you" without being prompted. Although, yesterday I caught her saying "I love you, Spun-Bob." It's a work in progress.
10. What you miss most about the single life:
The ability to meet up with friends at the drop of a hat and sleeping in the next day. But I'm not too proud to admit that my current best friend is 2 years old!
