A's to Your Q's: Part 2

Oof, today was a long day.  But I've got more questions to answer, doldrums be damned.  Luckily some of these questions were for Scott and the kids, so I'm kind of getting an easy pass today.

Belle from Metcalf Mania asked the following questions:

For Scott:  "Do you feel like your life is just one big blog post of Megan's?"

His response was, "You mean the camera that is now the sixth member of our family? No, I’ve never noticed."  Always a comedian.

For Ashley Belle:  "If you could pick anything to have wings (that doesn't already), what would you pick?"

She said,  "A frog.  Because it would be funny and everyone would laugh at it."  Hmm.  Now I'm feeling bad for this imaginary winged frog, poor thing.

For Owen: "What is your favorite color?"

He said, "Blue."  He's very succinct, that Owen.

For Aidan:  "What is your favorite animal?"

His response, verbatim, was, "Um… I know… a seahorse."  That just makes me smile.  :-)

Gringationcancun from Gringation's Blog asked me:  "What is your favorite movie and why?"

Star Wars.  Because it is AWESOME.  Yes, I am a nerd.

She also asked Scott:  "In Scott's opinion, who is the hottest actress?"

He went with Charlize Theron.  Harumph.  She also asked who *I* thought was the hottest male actor.  I'm gonna go with Robert Pattinson.

Yes, please.

Brandy from You Don't Know... also had a question for Scotty:  "What is Scott going back to school for?"

He answered, "Accounting. Because I love numbers so much. For example, why have one baby when you can consolidate pregnancies and have two at the same time?"  Isn't he just so smart?

Next up was Holly Ann, from Twins Plus One, Three Times the Fun, who wanted to know "What 'mommy milestones' are you most proud of?"

Hmmmm, that's a good question.  What am I most proud of.....hmm hmm hmmm.   They're all still alive - that's something to be proud of, right?  ;-)  Seriously though, it doesn't take much for me to be proud of myself when it comes to handling these three kids - if they all get a bath on the same day, I'm pretty much ready to nominate myself for mother of the year.

Emily from My Faith and Joy asked "How are your boys' speech habits going?"

Well, they haven't started speech therapy yet, so there is nothing major to report on that area.  But I do think being in preschool this year has helped them a ton with their pronunciation.  Their teachers are also having a lot easier time understanding them, but who knows if that's because the boys have improved or whether the teachers are just getting used to how they talk.  I'll keep you all posted once they actually start the therapy!

Marcia from 1, 2, 3 Blog wanted to know "How did you and Scott meet? Was it love at first sight? And how long did you date before getting engaged and married?"

I feel like this could be a post in and of itself.  In fact, I just might make it into one! Patience, readers.  All will be answered in due time.  Which probably means next week.

But I will answer Marcia's other question right now - "And of course, what is your motherstyle?"

You know, I don't know if I really have a motherstyle.  In fact, I don't even know what a motherstyle is.  But I think I'm going to get one, because it sounds fun.

And last but not least, Kristin from Kristin's Four Kids asked "If you could take a vacation without your children, where would you go and why?"

That one's easy.  Paris.  I've always dreamed of going with my husband.  Someday, I will.


Thanks for all the Q's everybody!  I still owe wonderchris from Love, Life and Ice Cream a QandA with Ashley and Jen from Buried With Children a Date Night Challenge, but I think I got everybody else.  If I missed any questions, or if you've thought of anything else you want to know, just ask and I'll spill!



Holly Ann said...

Haha!! My husband always answers the question "How are the kids?" with "They're all still alive so we must be doing something right!"

Kim said...

ooo! I have another one. Do you think you'll ever add another munchkin to the bunch?

Ruth Anne said...

I have a question... how did you lose your baby weight and get so svelte after the twins? You're just a wee thing. If it's not too personal; did you have a tummy tuck? Do you want one? I do. ;-)

Katherine said...

Dang it, now I have to go out and find a motherstyle.

wonderchris said...

Seahorse - good one Aidan. :)

Krystyn said...

That Scott...he's funny.

I bet you've rubbed off on him.

Robert Pattinson is indeed hot!!!
Can't wait till Breaking Dawn comes out.

Oh Paris. That sounds lovely. I want to go back to Italy, without kids underfoot (we took a 4 year old and 4 month old. ugh).

Ok, when you find out what a motherstyle is, will you let us know?

Another question~do you LOVE being a lawyer? I didn't, which is one of the reasons I stay home now.

Ha! I'm an accountant. Good choice. I don't exactly think numbers a "fun" but it pays the bills.
