1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid?  I made older dd lunch for school.  I woke up (multiple times) dd2 to get ready for school.  My kids are such sound sleepers!

2.  What things do you like doing with your kids?  Watch movies and there are a couple tv shows we all watch.  I like talking to them, dd1 is easy to joke with/talk with & I even like shopping with them now.  Dd2 and I have started going to the gym together.  

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?  Mostly good, I probably blocked out most of the bad. ; )  She was a sahm until we were in elementary school then she worked part time at one of the schools in our district (there were only 3, so it was an elementary/middle school and I went to the school she worked at for 2 years--when in middle school).  She always seemed to know everybody and I pretty much knew I couldn't get away with much, she'd hear about it eventually--small town and both my parents grew up there too.  And she knew most of the kids I went to school with, since she worked at the school.  

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted?  Both planned for

5.  Do you have a pet(s)?  Yes 2 toy poodles.

This has been a nice thread, thanks Jam!

No, they call it an iMac not an Iapple lol. Yes, most businesses abbreviate now or just go to all letters. Has been like that for many years.

[I am not a fan of super-short skirts, either. It doesn't even matter to me who they're on and what their legs look like...it's just an unbecoming look]......... Younger girls can definitely get away with them more. I just don't like the very short skirts where the girls can't even bend over without you seeing everything lol.

It is hard to find decent (for our tastes) clothes for teens. The shorts are all very short and my dc is not really into capris anymore like she used to when she was younger. She can still get away with wearing short(er) shorts though as she hasn't gotten cellulite yet lololol.

Nope.  An iMac is a specific product made by Apple.  As was the Macintosh.

1.  What was the last thing you did for your kid? Put a snack in DS's backpack with a little note.

2.  What things do you like doing with your kids? Taking them to the zoo, amusement parks, camping. Anything that gets them running around and laughing.

3.  What memories stand out about your own mom...  Good or bad?  Since my mom passed last year, all sorts of memories have come back that I hadn't thought of in so long.  Most of them good. But being human, she did make her share of mistakes, so yeah, some bad. All in all she was a great mother and did the best she could. Can't really ask for more than that.

4.  How many kids do you have?  Is it a # you planned for/wanted? Two, and it's exactly what I wanted.

5.  Do you have a pet(s)? A dog and three cats.

The Macintosh was the first compuer I ever worked on in an office--first office job.  It was way way way before windows and I just thought it awesome.

And now I can't get a stupid joke/song out of my head, "Don't sit under the Apple II-e, with anyone else but me." Oh man. I'm such a geek!

Well, it's quite obvious you don't live in the computer/geek/IT world.  and I-Mac is an actual computer.     http://www.apple.com/imac/

There is also a whole line of MacIntosh items.   Yes, it is often shortened to Mac.   But, Mac isn't synonymous with Apple. Macs are simply one part of the overall Apple line of products.
