My First Interview…Well Sort Of…

Queenie Jeannie tagged me with this “interview”. She thinks it will keep me out of trouble for a while. Shows how much she knows.

1. What are some of the best/worst things about being a Mom?

Hmmm, well that’s kind of a loaded question…The best thing is just being a Mom. I have this beautiful, amazing little girl that grew inside me. We are forever connected. I love hearing her laughter. I love watching her learn and discover new things. The light that illuminates her whole face when she comes across a new treasure or masters yet another skill makes my heart swell with love and longing for that kind of innocence again.

The worst things about being a Mom are never getting a break, always being “in Mom mode” and people, including my Husband, thinking that I sit around all day watching soaps, blogging and “eating bon~bons”. The way they think, its a wonder that my daughter isn’t developmentally delayed, malnourished and neglected.

Taking care of her, teaching her things, playing with her, disciplining her when she does wrong is a lot of work. She goes all day, rarely takes naps and wants to learn EVERYTHING. So, yeah, my house always looks like a hurricane hit it — Hurricane Ro — and I am always behind on my laundry. But she will only be this young once; she will never have this kind of purity again. I don’t want to miss it.

2. What dream did you have as a child that you gave up?

When I was 11, I wanted to marry Rick Springfield. Now I just want him as a love slave. OK, I’m kidding about that last part {Or am I?}. I wanted to be a Pediatrician. When I found out that they really didn’t have all patient interaction I wanted and that most R.N.s knew more than them, I decided to become a nurse instead. My Mother was none too pleased with my new career path and that hurt a lot. But my Dad always supported me no matter what I chose, as long as it made me happy and wasn’t illegal. LOL

3. You have only one more day to live….what do you do with it?

Wow! This one has so many possibilities…I would obviously spend it with my daughter and Husband. I would go somewhere beautiful and serene. The North Shore of Hawaii or the seaside cliffs of Ireland. This is all provided that I could get a Concorde to fly us there, otherwise it would be my favorite beach in Oceanside, CA.

4. Describe your happiest childhood memory.

There are so many…Going shopping on Christmas Eve with my Dad and wrapping the presents when we got home. And sharing my birthday with him. March 1st is my birthday, my Dad’s birthday and my parents wedding anniversary.

5. If you met a Genie and received three wishes, what would they be and why? And no, you don’t get to wish for more wishes – nice try!

That’s easy, good health for my loved ones for the rest of their lives. To have another baby. And to always have enough of everything my family and I need.

Well that’s my little Q&A. I hope you enjoyed it.

  1. Since you are simply the best, if I had 3 genie wishes, I would wish for Rick Springfield to be your love slave, to cook and clean for you and take you shopping anytime you want for whatever you want…so there!

  2. Kathy says:

    You sound like a fab wife, mom, nurse, and I’m sure you’d make a wonderful mistress to Rick Springfield (wink, wink)

  3. ChicagoLady says:

    Great answers! Keep thinking about those “best things” when she’s 15 and wanting nothing to do with you, lol.

    Someplace beautiful and serene to spend your last day, I think that’s a great choice.

  4. Well it took me forever, but I finally made it over to your blog! You did a great job and I loved reading your answers.

    Don’t worry, you will get to “sock it to me” very soon….stay tuned!
