I'm Game!

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 if I am in kid all over again.

If anyone wants me to ask them the "5 questions" just say it..

I could so do without winter too. Texas has been teasing us. It was 85ยบ one day and freezing the next. I'm ready for spring.

Ronnica said...

I would never have guessed #3, but that's why I asked the questions! I totally agree with #4, though I grew up with winter.

Michelle said...

Oh I love the five questions. That's such a neat idea. I'm with you on the winter thing (although I've almost always lived where there's snow) and the avoidance of sick kids at all costs. Fun post!

And thanks so much for stopping by my blog yesterday on my SITS day. I had so much fun and am still wading through wonderful comments. I hope you enjoyed yourself and that you come back to visit soon!

Interesting!! I agree, I love these game to get to know each other more and this post is no exception!

Actually, I rather be at home with a sick kid.. I had a very bad experience on the plane when my first daughter was 7 months old. She didn't misbehave, but one crazy passanger totally went nuts on us that we're sitting in business first with a baby saying baby doesn't belong there. Crazy!!!

Ever since that incident, I'm a nervous wreck every time we travel on planes.

Lalapoo said...

OH Gosh Maki, I can't believe someone would actually attack you because of a child.. some people are just too much!

I would give up winter in a second. In fact that is the main reason I moved out of PA to AZ!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
