Yesterday Ronnica answered five questions about her on her blog (they were asked to her by Evy) and in turn asked US (her blog fans ) if we wanted her to ask 5 questions.. of course I am game for anything that helps us learn more about one another as blogofriends , although I did not want too personal questions (Ronnica also took that into consideration) since I am still kinda weird about the whole revealing too much to the internet thingie.. So here they are:
1. Would you rather be home with one sick kid or travelling (by plane) alone with two kids?
I would rather be traveling alone with 2 kids, and all the madness that this entails, then being home with one sick kid.. I hate when my children are sick, I feel so powerless. My four month old daughter had a bout with Grastroenteritis aka the stomach flu and I really wish it was me instead of her. I guess I am really a sap when it comes to my children.
2. What talent or personality trait do you think gets most overlooked or underused as a mom?
Actually, I think that being a mom I get to use a variety of traits and talents that I did not even know I had: I get to be a teacher, an craftster/artist, a nurse, a cook, a friend, a police officer (that is when I really have to step my foot down).. and the list goes on.
3. If you had to eat the same thing for breakfast every morning, what would you choose?
I would choose to eat "soupe giromon" that is creole for pumkin soup; it's a typical haitian soup recipe.. It is made with the pulp of the pumkin and all kinds of veggies thrown in... Yummy!
4. Which season's weather would you give up if you had to?
That is just too easy: Please take winter away! I grew up in Haiti where it's always hot (probably one of the reasons I love hot yoga so much) and then I went to college at the Seventh Day Adventist University in Puerto Rico where not just the weather is HOT, I only moved here 5 years ago.. and I still can't get used to the whole winter thing!
5. What's your favorite book?
"Les Tazar" :This is a book that I read and re'read as a teenager and beyond, It's by a haitian author named Fernand Hibbert; we actually had to read this book in high school for class but I love it so much because of the reality it depicts, I also love it because of the feeling I get when I read it...as if I am in kid all over again.
If anyone wants me to ask them the "5 questions" just say it..
