I decided to participate in 5QF this week with my favorite Minnesota mama, MamaM!
1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?
I've been pretty blessed to have a relatively pain free childhood. Giving birth to my children ranks up there at the top...but in college I suffered with IBS and I gotta say that it could be nearly as painful as contractions...the pain just didn't last as long.
2. How much sleep do you get at night?
Well, I suppose I average about eight hours...from about midnight to eight. I know, I know...but my kids sleep in, too, and I home school so...nanny nanny, poo, poo!
3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus? How did you find out that he does not exist?
I was pretty old...I can't say exactly how old (maybe eight-ish)...but I remember just thinking about it one Saturday morning while watching cartoons and just went up to my mom in the kitchen and asked and she told me. My brother, on the other hand, was traumatized by the discovery...he had to be told on Christmas Eve one year because "Santa" wasn't going to be bringing him what he asked for and my parents decided he should know the truth. I remember his discovery pretty vividly as well.
4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?
Dear heavens! I'm not sure...it's been so long! I think the last movie we saw was "Avatar" which I hated! It's possible I've been to one since then but...I don't think so. It's just too hard with kids, no baby sitters & no money! But we have considered taking Eden & Jasmine to "Tangled" Thanksgiving weekend when our parents could watch Acacia. We'll see. I won't be shocked if it doesn't happen.
5. What do you wear to bed?
T-shirts & loose pants.
