An Island Life is hosting Aloha Friday. I thought it would be fun to participate. All you have to do is answer the question I ask by leaving a comment. Then click over to An Island Life and link up to Aloha Friday with your own question!


My Question:

Ok.. this week..I'll make it easier on you lol

Do your kid(s) do something that completely surprises you?

My Answer:

I think I phrased that right lol. My 5 year old son..loves maps. He can name most all of the states and many countries. He studies maps for hours. His favorite website.. is Google maps lol This love for maps comes from my father and his father.. kind of funny.

My boys are always surprising me. A short time ago I was asking my 6 year old his spelling words quickly. The word was ten. Without missing a beat he says to me "One Zero Mom!" Oy, he's already getting a quirky sense of humor.

Design it Chic - you're a hoot.

Anyway, my daughter does tons of things that surprise me and they aren't all good. LOL Like she has not problem decking boys in school that tick her off. BTW She is 14, so i guess it's a good thing. No one will ever take advantage of her.

Sometimes she does.

pam said...

My son does things that surprise me sometimes. The way he reacts to things surprises me because I'll think something is not a big deal and he'll have a meltdown about it. (he's 10)

My kids surprise me on a daily basis. They are little sponges.

My kids surprise me a lot :-) My daughter has surprised me lately with how well she can spell -- we can't spell anything anymore to try and "fool" her -- she figures it out now! And my son surprises me with how musical he is -- no one else in the family can carry a tune and yet he has the most beautiful voice -- go figure :-)

Every day he learns something new, so life is always full of wonderful surprises!

Both my kids have wonderful vocal skills. Some of the words my daughter uses sometimes, I think "how do you know that".

My son has been doing 25 piece puzzles since he was just over 2. That surprised me because he started out better at them then his 5 year old sister is now!

My girls amaze me every day! I have 6 yr old identical twin girls and they have been so advanced in their reading since they were very little. They are in 1st grade and were just tested at a 4th grade level in school and passed at 96%. I love having super smart kids but how do you keep them engaged and not bored?

A little about me...



It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
