My laid back day has turned into a rerun of yesterday. No weekend update again. Music Girl and I are off to spend some more $$. We're going out under the guise of buying food to make white chili for tomorrow. But you know and I know, I'm going to find a store with an 'intimate apparel' department. ;)

1. Typically, what time do you wake up? I wake up several times a night. I get up somewhere between 2:30-3:00 a.m.

2. On a good night, what time are your kids in bed? They need to be upstairs by 7 and in bed by 8 - if we're home.

3. How long have you been a mommy? Over half my life.

4. How old were you when you became a mom? 20.

5. What is your favorite kids T.V. show? Lazy Town - because of Sportacus. I haven't seen it in a while. Is it still on?

6. What is your least favorite kids T.V. show? Teletubbies and the like.

7. What is your favorite chore? Straightening up a room/putting things away.

11. What is your favorite thing your husband does with your kids? Family time.

12. What are 5 things that make you smile when you are being a mom? Being goofy with them, watching them do something they love, teaching them something new, end of the day hugs and kisses, when they've had a great day and are so excited about it, etc.

13. If you could take your kids anywhere, where would it be? Back to Colorado to stay.

14. When was the last time you went out without your kids? Yesterday. And the day before that. And today I'm going shopping with Music Girl. I get plenty of kid-free time.

19. What is your favorite kids book? I like the Junie B. Jones books that the kids have.

20. What is your favorite advice for new moms? Don't be so uptight about everything. Relax. Don't forget that your relationship with your SO is the most important.
