So I stole this from Rosie because I thought it was so very cool. The questions that she asked her 18 year old son about herself were so fun and his answers were a crack up. It showed what a great, quick-witted sense of humor he has - just like his mom.
So I decided that I was going to ask my 2 rugrat daughters the same questions - separately of course and here's what they came out with.
I've separated their answers so that you can see what the 11 year old said and what the 6 year old said.
1. What is something your mom always says to you?
11 – Put your shoes away (hey, maybe she’s actually listening!)
6– Go to sleep
( I have to tell you that when my 6 year old was in preschool the teacher asked the kids a few questions like this for the 3 years olds mothers day tea. I'm friends with her teacher and at the time she had to run down to my office to tell me that when she asked my daughter what my favorite thing to say was she said "shit". Omg how wonderful/mortifying is that? lol It was all the teacher could do not to bust out laughing and just ask for something else mommy might say!)
2. What makes your mom happy?
11 – When I do what she tells me to do
6 – If I pass my timed (math) tests
3. What makes your mom sad?
11 – When we get hurt
6 – I really don’t know
4. How does your mom make you laugh?
11 – When she tells us jokes.
6 – When she pretends to laugh (apparently I have a sarcastic fake laugh that she loves – who knew?)
5. What was your mom like as a child?
11 – A sweet, caring little girl (she’s obviously trying for brownie points! Lol)
6 – She liked to read books
6. How old is your mom?
11 – 43
6 – 43
7. How tall is your mom?
11 – 4 feet (dayum)
6 – 3 feet (double dayum…I’m actually 5’5”)
8. What is her favorite thing to do?
11 – Read
6 – Read
9. What does your mom do when you’re not around?
11 – Read
6 – Go on the computer
(I think they’ve figured me out)
10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
11 – Reading (she's totally laughing at this point - the little stinker)
6 – You’d be famous cuz you’re really good at reading
11. What is your mom really good at?

(While I love both of those it’s my long deceased grandmothers depression era inspired spaghetti recipe that makes my heart go pitter pat. Thank heavens I inherited the recipe)
15. What makes you proud of your mom?
11 – That she’s always there for me
6 – (At this point she stopped the questions and said...Her: Wait, is this all about you? Me: Yes, I told you that. Her: Wow.) That you buy me cool videos (awww to be 6 again)
16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?

6 – She has brown eyes and red hair and I don’t
20. How do you know your mom loves you?
11 – She kisses and hugs me
6 – Because she always kisses me
(love them kisses!)
21. Where is your mom’s favorite place to go?
11 – The library
6 – Knott’s Berry Farm (I think she was channeling her favorite place at this point)
(after the questions were done I just looked at them and said: Hello! The bookstore! They just hit their heads in an "Oh, yeah" moment)
Anyway that's the scoop from my wee ones. Well, 1 wee one and one that's not so wee any longer - oy.
