Five Question Friday!

It's finally here!  FRIDAY!!!

Another busy week is coming to an end!

Middleman's school soccer team won the championship in the local school tourney, UNDEFEATED!  They played like superstars and had a blast with all their friends!  They ended up with a HUGE trophy!  Very well-deserved!

Threepeat graduated from Sernior Kindergarten...sniff, sniff.  Wasn't he just born like yesterday??  Here he is with his diploma and the most awesome teacher EVER:


Next week, Middleman will graduate from grade 8!  Boy Oneder is in the throws of exams and will finish grade 11 on Monday.  Holy moly...time flies.

Being Friday, it's time for Mama M's Five Question Friday!!

Let's roll:

1. Have you ever been robbed and how did you handle it?


Yes.  In 1997 while we were staying temporarily at my in-laws' house while our new house was being finished.  We went out for about an hour and a half and came home to a broken side door and a ransacked house.  They took ALL of our jewellery, which was in my underwear drawer.  My bras and underwear were thrown all over the bedroom...I threw every single piece away...I felt SO violated.  :(  We went through hell with the insurance company and were only able to recoup a small amount compared to what was stolen thanks to riders and rules on how much we could claim.  I was most devastated by the fact that they stole my Nanny B's engagement ring.  It was probably worth $100.00, but in my heart it was worth MILLIONS.  I still cry sometimes about that.  :(  I hope the robbers were caught some time over these years and have paid for their crimes...it's a hideous feeling when you are robbed. :(

2. What do you do at a kids function when Parents don't behave? Meaning they are the ones being impatient and rude.

Usually, I walk away.  BUT....if you are rude and impatient with MY kid....get the heck out....I'll take you down baby!

3. Have you heard of a potty party? Will you/have you had one for your child(ren)?

Potty Party?  Never heard of it, but if it's what I think it is, it's RIDICULOUS.  Is this where you bring your kids to someone's house and they all sit on the potty and pee together?  That is gayer than gay and I certainly don't mean in a homosexual way....the is LAME!  PLEASE....tell me mothers don't really do this!!!

4. How young do you think kids should be when they start taking swim lessons?

I like the idea of having the kids get used to being in the water right from infancy (6 months-ish).  But for actual lessons, where they learn to swim?  Probably at about 3 years old.

5. What makes you happy?

Not a lot.  I am a pretty sad person most of the time...I am always in pursuit of being happy.  I like sun on my face, wine in my glass and music playing while I relax.  Yes, I could say my kids, but everyone says that. ;)   Have a stupendous weekend!  Ours will be quiet.  It's supposed to rain ALL weekend, so I guess my house will be super-clean!! Pin It
