I saw this on Brittany's blog and thought it looked like a fun thing to do. I was curious (and I admit a little nervous) to find out what my childrens' answers would be. I was working in the kitchen yesterday and Abigail was on the couch in the sunroom during rest time. She was supposed to be sitting quietly looking at a book or playing with her baby doll, but I looked over to see her flying through the air. So I decided to take her picture and ask her these questions. So here you go. Mama...according to Abigail. :)
What makes Mama happy? "When I don't disobey God"
What makes Mama sad? "When I disobey God"
How does Mama make you laugh? "If I'm silly"
What was Mama like as a child? "Like Abigail"
How old is Mama? "Eight. That's five and three"
How tall is Mama? "Probably this high" (holding out hand). "About 1 mile" :)
What does Mama do when you're not around? "Wash dishes"
If your Mama becomes famous, what will it be for? "Washing dishes"
What is Mama really good at? "Teaching me how to write numbers"
What is Mama not very good at? "Disobeying God" (So sweet of her, but if she only knew!)
What is Mama's favorite food? "Lasagna"
What makes Mama proud of you? "Talking to people with brown skin"
(Okay, lest you think we're awful people, I must explain! Our children...particularly our firstborn...have a hard time remembering to responding to people when they are spoken to. Before we go into a store I usually give a lecture on being polite and saying "hello" when someone says "hello" to you. Anyway, Abigail seemed to be a little intimidated by people who have different colored skin, so I explained to her that we are all made in God's image, skin color doesn't matter, and she needs to be respectful to her elders. I elaborated a little more than that, but that was the point. She seemed to understand, and she has made an effort to be polite to everyone since then. Just had to clarify. :)
What do you and Mama do together? "Fold laundry"
How are you and Mama the same? "Not really" :)
How are you and Mama different? "I don't know"
How do you know Mama loves you? "Because you wash the dishes" (apparently the story of my life!)
What does Mama like most about your Papa? "He works hard for us"
Where is Mama's favorite place to be? "With Papa"
