Mad Libs Monday: “Mother, May I?” by Quinn of CreatedByChicks.com
I love highlighting really nifty bloggers and so I thought I’d combine the two for what is now affectionately called Mad Libs Monday. Today’s “Mother, May I?” post comes to us courtesy of Quinn from CreatedByChicks.com and is again from the Dysfunctional Family Therapy (Adult Mad Libs) book. After the story you’ll find a few interesting facts about my dear friend and blogger Quinn. Enjoy!
MOTHER, MAY I?
by Quinn from CreatedByChicks.com
Yes, this is really Quinn’s life…
Name: Quinn Curtis
Where you grew up: Sandy, Utah
Favorite childhood game: Reading—I was (and still am) a total bookworm. My parents had to coax me away from books to play outside during the summer, as well as make threats about turning my light off at night so I’d go to sleep (but I would still try to read under the covers).
Super cool mom moment (i.e., one of those moments when you were the coolest mom ever): When my kids tell me “you’re the best mom ever!” They usually only tell me this when I’ve given them undivided attention and we’ve read books together, thrown an impromptu dance party in the kitchen or had “art time” and pull out the paints.
Totally uncool mom moment (if you’re willing to share): I’m soooooooooooooo bad about being sweet, patient and understanding when my kids wet their pants or their beds. I know I need to be better because I make it worse by freaking out, but I really don’t freak out over very many things (i.e., when Tate took a marker to the carpet I stayed totally calm while teaching him we don’t take marker to the carpet). There’s just something about them wetting their pants that brings out this crazy person in me (*hanging head in shame*).
Your go-to “drug” of choice (e.g., Diet Coke, chocolate, Peeps, Venti anything from Starbucks): Though I can’t eat much refined sugar, if it’s a bad day I snag trashy chocolate. If I’m keeping composure and sticking to my no-refined-sugar diet, my go-to “drug” of choice is Raw Melissa chocolate raspberry pie (made with agave and natural sugars).
Your guilty indulgence (e.g., reality TV shows, pedis, chick lit): I love dumb teen movies and sitcoms. I can usually snag them from the library (for free!) but Hulu is completely awesome for finding those shows without having to leave my house. I love it.
If you were stranded on a desert island, preferably in the Caribbean, who would you want with you and why? My husband. It seems like time together, just the two of us, is so rare. In our whole marriage, we’ve only taken two vacations away from the kids. Getting stranded together on a desert island sounds like a slice of heaven. Sign me up today, please!
