In the Words of my Child:

Amy had a fun post that got me wondering what my 6 year old might say to these same questions...I was very careful to hold my laughter until Jianna had left the room. So here I am in the eyes of my child:

Why did God make mothers?
So they help their child

How did God make mothers?
That one's too hard

What ingredients are mothers made of?
bones, muscles, nerves...that's all I know.

Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?
Because that mom was right for you.

What kind of little girl was your mom?

What did mom need to know about dad before she married him?
If he was mean or good

Why did your mom marry your dad?
Because he was right for her

Who's the boss at your house?
Parents...(when I asked her if one of us was more the boss...she said "I said ParentS")

What's the difference between moms and dads?
They don't look alike.

What does your mom do in her spare time?

What would it take to make your mom perfect?

If you could change one thing about your Mom, what would it be?
I would make you fun. (OUCH!!!!)

LOL!! I like the "love" one--too funnY!! I'm def. going to ask the kids!

Rhonda said...

Very smart young lady! Guess we'll have to work on the 'fun' part. Maybe Jianna & Mommy should go get pedicures together - ha!

Amy said...

Jen I revised mine with the answers from Hannah & Isaiah...I had to hold my laughter as well!!

Roxanne said...

LOL..."I said parents." Did she ask if you need a hearing aid?

Jen, I think you are fun.
I think Calia would have said the same thing about me needing to have more fun. Daddy usually wins for some weird reason in that category.
Hmmm I think I need to interview my kids.

Holly said...

Ha ha ha ha!!!! Too funny! I wish that I had thought of asking these questions to the kids when they were younger. I will have to get my sister to do this with her 5 year old!

Vicki said...

Love these answers! It's so neat to see what kids are thinking. My sister has a little one as well, so I'm going to suggest she ask her daughter the questions!

Awwwww, how cute! I want to ask my 6 yr old these questions too! Thanks for sharing!

Shari said...

Don't think I'm brave enough to ask my 17, 18 and 21 year olds these questions... they may get a little to honest for Mom's comfort level!

Cheryl said...

I'm with Shari, not quite brave enough now, although, well maybe if I asked Lindsay. Yah, that's who I'll ask. And I already know all of her answers.
She speaks with blinks of her eyelashes. And they all say the same thing.
"You are the best, I love you unconditionally"
(sometimes there are benefits to having a child who can't talk... this would be one of those moments)lol!

Tammy said...

ya asking 20 year olds these questions aren't so cute. Oh well, I guess Shari and Cheryl and myself (ouch) will have to wait to ask the grandbabies!!!! that will have to wait for a while though.

Hilarious! I am glad that you and your husband haven't morphed into one of those couples who look exactly like...and it's great that the kids recognize this!LOL
