All the way to the store tonight (and back) I’ve been trying to dream up a new post. Sometimes inspiration comes in floods, and sometimes it doesn’t come at all. That’s how I was feeling tonight. I couldn’t think of anything even remotely interesting to put on paper, let alone on the perma-web.
Fast forward to that peaceful place when Jonah is in bed and daddy is in the office working. No TV, no distractions. Just me and the Goose. I was enjoying some quiet time with Zachary when a random thought occurred to me. “I wonder what Zachary knows/thinks about his mommy.” So while he was beating his Zune at checkers, I thought up 20 questions to pose to my beyond-his-years 5-year old. Here are the results:
Obviously I’m asking the questions (Q), and he’s responding (A). 😉
Q. What is mommy’s favorite color?
A. Red. Just like me.
Q. What is mommy’s favorite animal:?
A. The muskox. Ha ha! i’m just being sarcastic. ((Sarcastic is his new favorite word. Isn’t that cute? Did you notice the sarcasm?)) You really love polar bears.
Okay. The kid’s 2 for 2.
Q. What is mommy’s middle name?
A. Jean. Because of Great-Grandma Jean.
Honestly, I had no idea he knew what my middle name was.
Q. What’s daddy’s middle name?
A. I have no idea.
Q. What’s mommy’s favorite food.
A. My guess would be spaghetti since we have it so much.

A. You work on the computer all day.

Q. What’s mommy’s favorite thing to do?
A. I’m guessing work on the computer since you do it so much.
Q. How old is mommy?
A. [insert scrunchy face, and steamy ears] You’re 37.
My response: how do you know that?!
His answer: because daddy’s 38 and you’re 1 year younger.
Damn, was I that smart at 5??
Q. Who does mommy like better, Iron Man or Spiderman?
A. Iron Man. I know you don’t like Spiderman. ((I know this fact breaks his heart, because he loves Spiderman.))
Trick Q. Who’s a better driver? Mommy or Daddy?
Correct A. You are, because you have a sports car and they’re harder to drive.
That’s my boy! 😉
Q. How does mommy usually feel?
A. Kind of mad. Well, kind of mad when Jonah is running around. When he’s in his chair you’re usually happy.
Hmm, note to self: keep Jonah strapped in chair all day.
Q. Who do you think mommy would rather be: Princess Leia, or Darth Vader?
A. I know you like Darth Vader cuz he’s cool, but I think you’d want to be Princess Leia cuz she’s good and Darth Vader’s bad. You’re good.
I love that my kid still thinks I’m good. Give it a few years, he’ll think I’m Vader.

A. You love me.
Q. What do you like least about mommy?
A. You work on the computer all the time.
Q. How would you describe mommy?

As opposed to the mommy he sent back. Okay, seriously, you just can’t buy better positive affirmation than that!
Q. Who’s the boss in our house?
A. Mommy. Oh, and daddy. I’d better say daddy too.
That’s right–he knows what’s what!
And there you have it. 20 things my kid thinks and/or knows about me. Now That’s a meme!
