not being in pain

3. What makes mom sad?
me being sick

being wierd (proffesional courtacy)

5. What was your mom like as a child?

6. How old is your mom?
43? (well, he's only a year off - someday he'll realize we're exactly 30 yrs apart)

18. How are you and your mom the same?

19. How are you and your mom different?

she says it herself (we all say it all the time - to one another - it's one of the most important things we do in our family, both my side and Mike's side)

22. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?
her parents' (ahh, he knows me well)

Aw, Cathy, this really is sweet. And It must be so interesting for a parent to see themselves through their kiddo's eyes. My Mom was really into saying "i love you" all the time too. Constantly. We do the same. Whereas my dad thinks it should be saved up or something.

Kids see alot. I'll be interested what Eleanor says to these when she's Simon's age. Did I ever tell you she gave me one of the best compliments of my life around 15 months old? Snow White came on. It was the scene where she is standing over the well singing that song "I'm wishing" or something. Eleanor stopped dead in her tracks and stared at the screen. She whipped her head back and looked at me and then back at the screen to shout and point "Mama!" at Snow White. How cool is THAT? :) xx

Hope you are feeling better. Sorry to have written a book here!

I love long comments - and I love that story. What a sweetie she is!

Si seems like a very cool & charming young man! I especially enjoyed the "wierd" comments. I have told Meri since the day she was born that in every group of kids there is always one kid who has the wierd mom, she's that kid, and the sooner she accepts it, the easier life will be for us all! :O) So far she's embracing it....only time will tell!

I think I've said this before, and if I haven't I meant to. I am so impressed with Si. What a mature young man. AND while I am laughing at a lot of the "stuff, and the weird" comments, I can tell he is a very intuitive young man who pays attention and loves you very much. That is just really cool.
