What my kids say about me....

Found this fun survey for my kids and thought I'd find out some interesting things about myself.  I asked them to say the first thing that comes to mind.  Luke said "train".  I said "After I ask the question please."  Brad also chimes in occasionally and I respond to some responses in parentheses.

1. What is something mom always says to you?
Luke- Be on your best behavior & I love you,   Grace- Get back to your school work! (my darling distractible daughter said)

2. What makes mom happy?
Luke-coffee, Grace-sudoku, Daddy-sleep  (yep, doesn't take much for me!)

3. What makes mom sad?
Grace-when things aren't put away in the right place (not always, but she remembers my morning rant) Luke-when I don't do my school work 

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
Luke- funny things you say, Grace-when you get silly words all mixed up, (like at dinner tonight when I meant to say "I do!" and it came out "I doe" and they laughed hysterically)  Brad-when you pout

5. What was your mom like as a child?
Grace- I don't know, I wasn't even born!  Luke- caring and honest, Brad- "goody-goody" (he's just jealous.)

Luke-sleep, Grace-play games

9. What is your mom really good at?
Grace-Wheel of Fortune, Luke- Cooking 
10. What is your mom not very good at?
