Mommy Tag!

1. Typically what time do you wake up? Usually between 6 and 7.
2. On a good night what time are your kids in bed? Usually between 9 and 9:30 p.m.
3. How long have you been a mommy? About 15 months, and yes I do have two kids now. We get it done around here!
4. How old were you when you became a mommy? 27 years old
5. What is your favorite kids tv show/movie? Sesame Street, hands down. Skylar will watch a whole hour of it. I know it is kind of bad to let her watch that much TV but I have my hands full!
6. What is your least favorite kids tv show? Wiggles
7. What is your favorite chore? I don't have a favorite but the one I hate the least is vaccuuming.
8. What is your favorite meal to cook? I love to make Shepherd's Pie.
9. What is the meal you cook most often? I rotate thru about 5 meals and I think I make them all equally. Travis teases me that I make the same meals every week! I need some new recipes so feel free to email...
10. What is your kids favorite meal? Skylar doesn't really eat anything but Macaroni and Cheese. Sailyr just loves breast milk and Similac since she doesn't really know anything else!
11. What is your favorite thing your husband does with your kids? Everything! I love watching him be a dad! It makes me love him even more than I already did before we were parents!
12. What are 5 things that make you smile when you're being a mom?
1. When Sailyr smiles and giggles at me.
2. Skylar learning new things.
3. Both girls in the tub together.
4. When Skylar lifts up my shirt to see my belly button. She just discovered "buttons".
5. Skylar giving Sailyr kisses! My heart feels like it is going to burst with how much I love both of them!
13. If you could take your kids anywhere where would it be? I think that I would take them on the Disney Cruise! I have always wanted to go on that. Right now we would settle on just making thru a shopping trip or out to dinner.
14. When was the last time you went out without your kids? Last week Travis and I went golfing together, just the two of us. It was so much fun. That was only the second time we have been on a "date" without a baby since Skylar was born!
15. What is your favorite past time/activity to do with your kids? Playing outside on the driveway...kind of sad I know, but we don't have a yard yet so that is as good as it gets!
16. Name 1 thing you said you'd never do as a mom: Have a toddler that was really bratty. I hope we aren't heading down that road but it is a possibility!
17. What is your favorite quality that your mom has? She never tells me how to be a mom and she doesn't ever give unsolicited advice. She has let me figure it out on my own unless I have asked for her help, which was early and has been very often!
18. What is your advice for new moms? Enjoy every moment, because they're not little forever. The last year has flown by and they change so much in just a short period of time! There is such a big difference in what Skylar can do now compared to Sailyr's age. It makes me so sad and excited at the same time!
19. What is the scariest or most heartbreaking moment as a mom? I haven't had very many scary ones yet but it always breaks my heart when Skylar cries when her dad leaves in the morning for work. Sometimes he is going out of town for days and it makes me feel so bad that she is sad and doesn't realize that she really won't see him for a while!
20. What is your most joyful moment of being a mom? I love it all and I can't pick just one moment. It is the hardest, most rewarding work in the world!
21. When was the last time you were told 'I Love You' by one of your kids? They can't say it with words yet but I can't wait until they can!
I now tag: Anyone who is a mom and wants to do this tag.....
