interview with my babies...

Mini is 4.5yo, and Lam is 6.5yo. And I've always wondered what goes on in their minds when they think of their mommy.

Now, I know they won't tell what they REALLY think -- especially when they're allowed only one piece of cake or banned from playing video games -- (although I'm sure I have a good idea), but this little meme gave me a little glimpse into their massive brain matter.

To avoid any cross-contamination, I interviewed these monkeys separately, because you know, they're monkeys. The boy's answers made me laugh. Especially #11 & #12. LOL!

1. What is something mommy always says to you?
Lam: Elbows off the table, because I do that a lot and forget.
Mini: I don't know.

2. What makes mommy happy?
Lam: Relaxing.
Mini: Taking care of her kids.

3. What makes mommy sad?
Lam: Getting sick.
Mini: When she's alone.

4. How does your mommy make you laugh?
Lam: Sometimes when you do funny things.
Mini: Funny jokes.

Mini: Putting me on your blog.

11. What is your mommy really good at?

Mini: Hugging.

12. What is your mommy not very good at?

Mini: Sushi places.


  1. *very* adorable. Quite the window (I <3 Lam's #12 - brat!)

    I've got mine in the queue, but have yet to nail down #2 for her responses (I made a point of isolating #1 for hers, as it seems you've done). I think one of them said my favourite thing to do was laundry, which would explain why they go out of their way to generate it.

  2. Would that be Atomic Netty? :)

  3. I love that you'll become famous for putting Mini on your blog. :)

  4. These always crack me up! Good idea on separating the two so there was no cross contamination.

    I really need to do this with my kids, ti shoudl be good for a laugh or two at my expense!

  5. I love this post. Makes me wish I can interview both my kids now too. Hehe. :-)

  6. Your kids are very funny. I'm almost afraid to interview mine... nah, I'm going to try this. Separating them will be the issue.

  7. @harmzie:
    yes, I don't think he knows what Mommy used to do for a living. Bwahaha!

    good one, Mary! :)

    she surprises me with her insight!

    I was putting this off for a while, unsure if I should do it or not. But they loved it, and it was fun for me.
    Do it! I think you'll be surprised with your results. :)

    Your son might be old enough, right? :)

    Why not get that hubby of yours to help distract one while you interview the other?!
    But to be honest, I was a little afraid too. :)

  8. Apparently you have some pretty amazing life-saving skills (#15) so it's a good thing you go for balance, Relaxi-Mom. And you do almost nothing with your son. Those are my faves: Hilarious.
    I wish I'd done these every year with both kids.

  9. @Musing:
    Yeah, I'm not sure where she got that number! LOL

    Yes, balance is key! :) I think I deserve it after the 200 aliens thing.
    Yeah, the 'almost nothing' made me laugh. Priorities, I guess, right? He only remembers that I won't play video games with him because it make me motion-sick. :)

    I think I *will* do it every year. I guess you can do that with M, and it would still be interesting to find out which cartoon character Z thinks you would be. ;)

  10. you apparently eat a lot of sushi and give good hugs! :)

  11. @Carlene:
    I guess I could be famous for worse things, right?! LOL :)
