NOW, TWENTY QUESTIONS ABOUT YOU
- The most significant aspect of my upbringing. My parents are still married and happy!
- My best advice to mothers about to enter the stage of child rearing that I just went through. Don’t sweat the small stuff, and pick your battles!
- Something that concerns me about my children. They do not listen to me! EVER
- My absolute worst mothering moment (so far). Ugh…there are so many….
- What annoys me most about other mothers. They think that their children are so perfect, when they are such brats! I KNOW my kids are evil! LOL
- I am happiest when. My family is all together, snuggled in safe for the night.
- I am saddest when. I feel like I am just not doing everything I should be to ensure my family is happy.
- My biggest fear. Losing someone who I love so much, again.
- I am ashamed of. My weight.
- Something I need to forgive. I always forgive. ALWAYS. Life is way too short to hold a grudge.
- Something I wish I could say to someone. I am pretty outspoken and I speak my mind.
- Something I have never told anyone. I have thought about suicide on more than one occasion.
- Something I am trying to change about myself. My weight – I am SO FAT!
- My biggest accomplishment. My babies.
- I wish. I had more money.
- Something my relationship with my mother has taught me about parenting. LOVE is enough, no matter what you do, nobody will ever love you like your momma does!
- Something my relationship with my father has taught me about parenting. It is ok to be firm, and to stand your ground. Your kids will love you for it later.
- How I would describe my faith life. I am a Christian, but I do not think that you have to behave any certain way to please others.
- Something I hope will be different for me by this time next year. I hope that my husband and I can find our way back to one another.
- Something important about my story that hasn’t been captured by the questions above.
