When boredom gets the best of me

Oh, alright, since Maggie and I were stuck at home last night watching the most exciting basketball game in my alma mater's history on T.V., I decided to do another "meme" with her. I saw this last week on Michelle's blog and thought it was so cute. Of course, her daughters are quite a bit younger than my youngest, but I thought it would be interesting to try it with older kids.

So anyway, here's the deal with this one. I asked the questions; Maggie gave the answers. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. Aww, the perfect mom! Except...ham and cheese loaf??? Really??

  2. At least Maggie thinks you are least sometimes! I didn't realize how boring I was until I gave them this interview. :) And she likes your cooking! You should be mother of the year!

  3. Jodi, have you ever tasted my ham and cheese loaf?! :) Anyway, these were HER answers, not mine! (That's actually not my favorite food.)

    Yes, Michelle, my family does like my cooking! I had a good teacher in my own mom who was (and is) a fantastic cook.

  4. I would be scared to ask my kids these questions. Well, maybe with Anna it would be funny. The others might be too uncomfortable true.

  5. Meant uncomfortably

  6. It just dawned on me...I bet ham and cheese loaf means a hot-wrappy-sandwich-type-thing which, yes, would be yummy! I was picturing the deli ham/balogney with the cheese bits inside. :)-
