I am starting a new work schedule this week where I work Monday through Thursday and have Fridays off to stay home with Austin.  This doesn't bode as well for my participation in 5QF, but hopefully I can still work it in on a regular basis.  And hopefully I will have time to catch up with everyone else, if not on Fridays.

1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates?

Austin is not a big eater, so most nights it's a challenge to get him to eat his dinner.  I don't really ever make him "clean the plate," but we do encourage him to eat more because he would eat like a bird if we didn't. 

2. Do you give an allowance?

He's three, so no allowance yet.  Once in a great while he enjoys playing with coins, putting them into a coin sorter or piggy bank, so I will give him the change in my purse and it usually ends up in his piggy bank afterward, but it's not really an allowance.

3. Do you actually park your car in the garage?

We don't have a garage, so nope!

4. What is one food you will NEVER cook?

Liver, yuck!  My Mom used to fry liver and onions and make me eat it.  See my parents' answer to #1 was YES THEY WILL CLEAN THEIR PLATE before they can leave the table. (even so to this day I do not have any eating disorders or weight issues though)  I hated liver and onions.  I know back then it was thought that liver was some miracle iron food, but now we know that it is horribly unhealthy in addition to tasting like poop, so I will never ever, ever eat it again!

5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the summer?

Well yes in fact, I am planning to give birth to this amazing baby girl I have growing in my tummy, and I think that is very exciting on the grand scale of life.  I am due August 12, but would be more than happy if she would make her grand entrance any time after 37 weeks and spare me the Arizona summer heat. 


  1. August 12 means she's going to be a little Leo! For me little Leo meant dance recitals and the state girl's hockey playoffs - Be different, be seen, be queen! :)

    SO with you on the liver! Thankfully my Mom hated it and we never had to eat it!

  2. My Aunt Paula {my Uncle's Russ's wife} has some very strong opinions about forcing kids to eat. Apparently she was when she was a child and it was a horrible because of that fact none of our family ever would, she wouldn't let us even if we tried lol!

  3. Liver and onions! Poor you! Haha! :)


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
