I am looking for other people's input here.

2) What is for dinner tonight? It's Friday. It's pizza.

3) So far, what was the most fun child stage (when was it the most fun to be the parent)?

For me, it is right ow - they are 11 and 13. They are independent enough and nice enough. It is summer, so we don't have the4 hassles and stresses of school. Although it is about time for me to start worrying about YDS's teacher assignment. I hope this one actually is trained in his reading program and we don't have to go through what we went through last year to change it.

4) Mommy Brags here- was is super special about each of your children? YDS is great at SUDOKU and ODS is about to get his Star in scouts.

5) What is your super power? My super power is that I am able to get in anyone's way at the supermarket without trying.

6) In how many states/countries have you lived? Iowa, Montana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, DC and Virginia. So, six states, one District and one country.

7) Dream time, you have four weeks to go anywhere with anyone. Where do you go and with whom? With DH to New Zealand for three weeks and a quick trip to Sidney for a week.

Sounds like you have your color scheme already!

2) What is for dinner tonight?

Dunno, we have not been cooking much lately.

3) So far, what was the most fun child stage (when was it the most fun to be the parent)?

The last couple of years. Nice to see that the experiment worked.

4) Mommy Brags here- was is super special about each of your children?

I think it is neat that she taught herself pattern-making from internet resources and that she makes very nice clothes for herself. In general, she is very independent and capable.

5) What is your super power?

Uhm, not sure I have one, lol.

6) In how many states/countries have you lived?

2 states, 5 countries.

7) Dream time, you have four weeks to go anywhere with anyone. Where do you go and with whom?

I go alone and I go either to Italy or else to the highlights of the US south, although I will skip the sweet tea, I think.

Probably yellow squash linguine and a salad

3) So far, what was the most fun child stage (when was it the most fun to be the parent)?

empty nest

DD1:sense of humor

The ability to keep track of the status of 100+ jobs every week.

Probably dark green, light green, cream, and beige.

2) What is for dinner tonight?

We're getting takeout burritos/tacos. DD's 4 birthday is today and the chicken tacos from this place are one of her favorites.

3) So far, what was the most fun child stage (when was it the most fun to be the parent)?

It's pretty fun right now.

4) Mommy Brags here- was is super special about each of your children?

DD remembers the funniest things and then repeats them back to us. DH tells her about all the science that goes into cooking while she helps him make things. So, the other day, we were making zucchini bread and I said something about not stirring it too much or the bread wouldn't be good. She said "You mean the gluten strands will be too long."

DS is still really cuddly and has the best smiles and giggles. He also just learned to nod yes and shake his head no. It's the cutest thing ever.

5) What is your super power?

Keeping track of everything that's going on and making sure everything is ready before we/I have to do something.

6) In how many states/countries have you lived?

2 states (WV and IL), 2 countries (US and Germany).

7) Dream time, you have four weeks to go anywhere with anyone. Where do you go and with whom?

I'd go with DH to Chile for a week, Germany for a week, and India for a week. The fourth week would be eaten up by travel time.

I think we may be related. My grandfather had the knack for always getting the stone in the cherry pie and the bay leaf in the soup.
