My friend Jill did this Facebook thing with her son and the result was totally cute and charming. So I mistakenly thought it would be nice to try it with Graham, age 9.
WITHOUT ANY prompting, ask your child these questions and write down EXACTLY what they say. It is a great way to find out what they really think. When you re-post put your Child’s age.
1. What is something mom always says to you?
“Graham put down that flame thrower!” *laugh* Okay no, really: “I love you.”
2. What makes mom happy?
Turds! Haha. No my real answer is Seeing me eat anything that is the opposite of junk food.
Also punching me in the face. *laughs hard*
3. What makes mom sad?
The thousands of times I have burned the house down. Seeing that I live in a cabinet. (Gets into a kitchen cabinet.) Hey this is actually a great place! Okay this is my new favorite hiding place. (comes out of the cabinet)
I don’t know actually. I know it makes you sad that I have to get scoped.
4. How does your mom make you laugh?
By doing this quiz on me and letting me give such honest answers. Like for instance that I live in a cabinet. *gets back in the cabinet*
5. What was your mom like as a child?
I’ll never come out!
6. How old is your mom?
This is my HOME NOW.
7. How tall is your mom?
I don’t know. Roughly three and a half feet.
8. What is her favorite thing to do?
(exits cupboard) Draw. Specifically pictures of turds. Hahahaha no, just draw.
9. What does your mom do when you’re not around?
Ummm well for one thing swear like a horse.
Stays in the bathroom all day because there’s no one to knock on the door and say Will you be out soon??
Eat sushi because she secretly likes it.
Probably something random I can’t even imagine like order 17000 5-gallon jugs that are empty and then fill them with oxygen using the tanks you secretly have set up in the basement and then breathe oxygen for the rest of the day.
10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
Having glasses. *laughs so hard he can no longer speak, takes several minutes to pull it together for a real answer*
Ummm okay probably making the best bacon ever.
11. What is your mom really good at?
Pooping. Laughs. Okay no, for real Okay. POOPING. I’m just guessing because she has done it so much in her lifetime.
12. What is your mom not very good at?
Juggling lit matches while balancing eggs while riding a unicycle, standing on the pedals. I’m just guessing because you’ve never tried it before and things like that take practice.
I have an actual answer but you’re probably not going to like it. Do you still want to hear it? Anger management.
(ME: What? Really? When? I’m pretty even-keeled.
HIM: makes a horrible, loud high-pitched noise and stares at me smirking and daring me to respond.
13. What does your mom do for a job?
She’s never told me but her uniform has the symbol for the Illuminati on it HELP ME.
She really makes cards. With letters on them. (whispers: help me for real)
14.What is your mom’s favorite food?
Honestly I don’t know. Ummmm
15.What makes you proud of your mom?
Let me go into my thinking place… (gets back in the cupboard). I’ll be out in a few minutes when I’ve thought of an answer. (comes out)
Just how nice you are.
16. If your mom were a character, who would she be?
Gwen’s mom from Ben10.
17. What do you and your mom do together?
Go shopping at Target when Nicolaus and Daddy aren’t here. We draw pictures together when they are here.
18. How are you and your mom the same?
Our skin tone color is similar. Is that racist? That sounds a tiny bit racist but it really isn’t.
I just thought of three more things: We both have very rounded ears. We both like to draw, as mentioned earlier. And the third is we both have a large ugly growth on our noses. OH WAIT, that’s our face and body. (laughing, answers the rest from inside the cupboard)
19. How are you and your mom different?
I think the scarf things she wears on her head would be horribly uncomfortable and she obviously likes them.
20. How do you know your mom loves you?
Because she says so about 1700 times a day.
21. What does your mom like most about your dad?
Ummmmmmm. I really have no idea. I’m guessing his personality.
22. Where is your moms favorite place to go?
Turdland! A themepark all about turds!
Wait no that’s ME.
The oven. Because she is envious that there’s no way she could fit in this amazing cupboard.
I’m going to guess Target but she only likes it if she can go with me.
23. How old was your Mom when you were born?
I don’t know. I’m guessing 32! What’s the real answer? Or do I need to count when I was zero? Can I move these paper towels to another cabinet?
