So, apparently I yell too much, work out at the Y an awful lot, and would make a great cartoon dog. At least my kids know I love them! :)

Oh wow...Ken's answers were cracking me up. I love how she said you were a toy when you were a child. What a fun thing to do.

Rebekah said...

That is so incredibly funny! I'm going to ask my kids these questions tomorrow. I don't think Spencer will be understandable, but Lauren will. (Fuji apples are my favorite too.)

Lauren said...

This is hilarious! I can't wait to ask my kids questions like this. My favorite is that Kenna thinks you go to the bathroom when you're not around. Too funny.
And I'm so impressed that your kids think you work out a ton (which I'm sure is no lie). When my kids are old enough to talk they will say things like, "eats lots of cookies and fried stuff and sits on the couch all day."
Thanks for posting this! Made my evening.

Shannon B said...

haha...I posted my blog and then I read yours...I guess we are on the same wavelength. we are twins. don't you wish we could be as creative as our kids? :0)

Dan~Kerstin~Bree said...

CUTE! I love those shows where they ask kids questions. It is so fun hearing what their perception on things is.

Chelsey Howard said...

that is adorable, I'm totally gonna do that with Shea:) Yeah they did say work out a lot, no wonder why your so skinny.

Where did you get the expression "Willie off the Pickle Boat"? My mother and grandmother have been using the expression for at least 50 years. I've traced it back about a hundred years

Megan said...

Kids are so's funny. I'll have to do this with my kids!

Jessica said...

Very cute. It made me laugh. I want to ask Jenna these questions. I think I will probably get similar answers. Your girls are so much fun.

Erin said...

This is so stinking cute!!! I'm laughing out loud sitting here at my computer all by myself. :) Thanks so much for the comment you left on my blog! I've had so much fun "meeting" people in blog-world. You have a beautiful family! Congrats on your referral - maybe we'll be heading to Ethiopia about the same time! I look forward to reading more!!

That's precious!

Shannon said...

Some of my favorites:
You were a toy.
You always "hold it" when the kids are around.
You have very scared children -always in fear of being disobedient or naughty. (jk!)
You were a good girl when you were little (Ha! Just wait til I share a few stories with them when they are older...)
You are famous like John the Baptist.
Emma is sick of you saying that you love her.

This was a great reminder that Mckenna says the funniest things. It's an interesting insight into Emma, though.
