Mommy Questions gone BAD

So I saw this on my friend Bryn's blog last week and I thought to myself....
"That is so sweet, I've just got to do that with Jack."
So I go down the hall all excited and interrupt Jack who is happily playing with his transformers and say...
"Hey Jack, come in my office I want to play a little game with you and ask you some questions."

I should have known things would not turn out as PERFECTLY as I had imagined them in my mind.

This is the picture I took of him about half way through the questions. He is totally into this Mother/Son moment.

1. What is something mom always says to you?
“ this is not a game mom.”
2. What makes mom happy?
Uhh, I snuggle with you.”
3. What makes mom sad?."
“When I do bad things.”

“burp things.” (K-that is so not true)

"Mom, come on, I don’t want to do this.”
13. What does your mom do for her job?
“Take pictures”
14. What is your mom's favorite food?

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?
“bumble bee.” {The transformer}

Oh What do you do in the Summer time???

Apparently, I'm not much into blogging....but for the sake of our yearly book I'll attempt to play catch up on what we have been doing even though I really can't stand the sight of my computer after editing non-stop weddings.

Happy Anniversary to us. It's funny how your perception of "True Love" changes over the years. It seems like every year that passes with Ted the things I think equal TRUE LOVE become different things.

when we first met on this singles Water Ski trip I thought....
"Wow, that guy can really lay down some sweet rooster must be TRUE LOVE."
"This Ted character is quite the skiier...This is for sure TRUE LOVE."
and when.....
Almost every one of our dates revolved around the Olympic events or Concerts...
I for sure thought..."TRUE LOVE."

AND...when he always left me cute little notes and messages...well, of course...

then when he asked me to marry him.....come on! who gets married unless it's...."TRUE LOVE."

Now, things are different. Don't get me wrong I still love that Ted is a maniac on the slopes and love to water-ski with him on those off years when I don't happen to be pregnant but I'm finding the things that define "TRUE LOVE" to me are the simplest things.

Ted's cousins shaving his head into a Mohawk hours before a family wedding reception last week! TRUE LOVE...right?
When he thinks he is Randy Jackson and while I'm singing says stuff to me like:
"those were some MAD VOCALS dawg."
"Yeah, I don't know was a little pitchy for me."

and when the boys ask him for something.....
"It's gonna be a no for me dawg."

and sweet little moments with our boys. TRUE LOVE.
And finally, the #1 reason it's TRUE LOVE....he cleans the bathrooms for me just because he knows how much I HATE cleaning bathrooms.

Happy Anniversary Tedy!!
