Me, According to Them

I got this great idea from Perri. (It is significant to note that they were having breakfast, so you'll know I am not as food obsessed as some of their answers might otherwise indicate. )

1. What is something Mom always says to you?
R "I Forgot" (I think he meant that he couldn't think of anything...but he may very well have meant that I forget things a lot.)
P "What kind of cereal would you like?"
K "Eat!"

2. What makes Mom happy?
R "When I love on you."
P "When I eat."
K "When I do something that you didn't even ask me."

3. What makes Mom sad?
R "When I do something bad."
P "When my brother hits me." (R retorted, "I just did that when I was three and four, not four and a half.")
K "When I don't come when my Mommy asks me to."

4. How does your Mom make you laugh?
R "When you tell me jokes."
P "I'm going to tell you how I make you laugh...when I tell a silly green monster story."
K- "Tickle me."

5. What was your Mom like as a child?
R "Like you, but littler."
P "Like our age"
K "Like the beach." (?)

6. How old is your Mom? (34)
R "12"
P "20"
K "30...Mom, why are all these questions about you?"

7. How tall is your Mom?
R "I forgot."
P "44 feet"
K "11" (She did this cute thing with squinty eyes and her hand as she counted up my body.)

8. What is her favorite thing to do?
R "Play with us."
P "Play with me."
K "Play with me."

9. What does your Mom do when you're not around?
R "Works"
P "Cry" (This really made me laugh. I guess I shouldn't say I have missed him when I pick him up after school.)
K "Wash the clothes"

10. If your Mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
R "Rock Star!" (giggles)
P "Rock Star!" (more giggles)
K "I don't know what famous is."

11. What is your Mom really good at?
R "Playing baseball with me."
P "Being a deejay."
K "Doing work and being a Mommy and take caring of us."

12. What is your Mom not very good at?
R "The race car Wii"
P "Exercise Wii."
K "Writing or painting"

13. What does your Mom do for a job?
R "Clean the clothes."
P "Wash the dishes."
K "Take care of her kids and make sure they don't lie."

14.What is your Mom's favorite food?
R "Lettuce"
P "Salad with dressing on top."
K "Salad"

15.What makes you proud of your Mom?
R "When you get magnets on the board." (This is their reward system that R has decided to use to reward me too. :-)
P "When...the same thing R said."
K "Can you tell me some stuff that I can say?"

16. If your Mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?
R "Lightning McQueen and Mater--both of them."
P "Green Monster with one eyeball."
K "Minnie."

17. What do you and your Mom do together?
R "We play sometimes."
P "We play bouncy ball games."
K "Go on errands sometimes."

18. How are you and your Mom the same?
R "You and me have black hair."
P "We eat the same cereal."
K "We have the same color eyes."

19. How are you and your Mom different?
R "Nothing!" (incredulously!)
P "You have dark hair and I have lighter hair."
K "You have straight hair and I have curly hair."

20. How do you know your Mom loves you?
R "When you kiss me and love me."
P "When you hug me."
K "Because I just know."

21. What does your Mom like most about your dad?
R "Going to Disney World with us."
P "When he washes the dishes."
K "When he loves on you. I see him do that sometimes."

22. Where is your Mom's favorite place to go?

i so love this...i am planning on stealing it for some blog fodder...i'll let you know if i do...

of course having triplets answer it makes it 3x as cute!

dee said...

So precious! I'm with you on the Disney answer!!

Isabella said...

So precious! The age question is always hysterical. I eat lunch weekly with a little girl at an inner-city school. I told the girls at her table that I just turned 33 and one of them said, "My Auntie is 33 and she's a grandmother!" Since I'm single with no children, it was quite a lesson in contrasts (and choices).

JMom said...

The funniest is that I really don't eat salad THAT often...only once or twice a week.

Liz said...

Oh, they are such a delightful mix of sweethearts and hilariously funny! I like that P&K definitely know that you prefer to play with them specifically, but R thinks you like to play with everyone.

I also love that you're 12. :)
