1. What is something you do for your kid(s) that they could (and probably should) be doing themselves? (this won't be used against you in a later thread lol).

2. When you go shopping in a store like Walmart/Target (someplace that sells a variety of things) do you manage to just go in and buy what you intended to or do you find a bunch of other things to purchase?

3. What is your food weakness?

Not unless some ill-informed person comes on and says that they aren't worth the money and Red Delicious are just as good.Wink

I wash and fold the laundry for everyone.

I'm more likely to forget the item I intended to purchase.

Butterscotch suger ice cream cone (I may have one for lunch)

I only think of them in that way because of the expense of the darn things.  I was going to say the Tyrrells potato chips, but I didn't want to start the great potato chip debate again.  ;)  I figured apples were boring and wouldn't cause an issue.

His laundry, sometimes.  He does do it quite a bit, but there are only two of us and sometimes if I'm doing a load of my whites (or whatever it is I'm washing) and still have room, it just seems silly not to throw his in, too.  

2. When you go shopping in a store like Walmart/Target (someplace that sells a variety of things) do you manage to just go in and buy what you intended to or do you find a bunch of other things to purchase?

I will sometimes pick up an item or two that I didn't plan to buy.  Especially if I see a really good deal on something.  For example, I recently noticed that the coffee we like was on sale for less than half of what I usually pay for it.  It wasn't on my list but it was a great deal, so I bought a few of them.  

3. What is your food weakness?

If I have one, it's olives.

Probably preparing lunches for them for school, they used to do it themselves but at some point I started doing it again.  They are usually in the kitchen with me and it's a nice conversation every morning, I like that connection with them since I don't have the car ride to school with them most days anymore.  They are usually in the kitchen when I make dinner too, so it's a nice connection again. 

2. When you go shopping in a store like Walmart/Target (someplace that sells a variety of things) do you manage to just go in and buy what you intended to or do you find a bunch of other things to purchase?

I don't go to either on a regular basis but it's rare that I go in/out with only the items on my list.  I buy most things at either the grocery store or Sam's each week or two.  

3. What is your food weakness?

This time of year it's carmel apples and honey crisp apples.  We go through pounds and pounds a week of the hc apples.

Clean up their rooms, put their laundry in the hampers. Could they do this? Do this do this? Yes but I guess the mom and the OCD in me to have a neat, organized home wins over some days lol.

It all depends. Last night I went to Walmart to get Yams, Marshmallows and Hair Dye. I ended up getting those things plus things I did need. Lighter for my candles, calendars for work and home, lock for my dd's locker at school, makeup for my dd and a mum (didn't "need" this lol). 

3. What is your food weakness?

Chocolate
