Five Question Friday - April 27

1. Do you make your kids finish all the food on their plates?

It honestly depends.  If Lynden hasn't eaten much throughout the day and we know the amount we've given him at dinner he can eat we will make him eat all of it.  (It's more frustrating when he asks for a snack 5 minutes after dinner).  It is hard to tell sometimes because we dish him up, as he gets old enough to dish his own plate then we'll be a little more strict about it.

2. Do you give allowances?

Not yet.  We threw around the idea of paying Lynden to do certain things each day, like put his toys away, put dirty clothes in the laundry, help make his bed, etc, but he wasn't too keen on the idea.  Probably after his birthday we'll ask him again; the kids does like money!

3. Do you actually park your car in the garage?

We only have a carport, and Danny doesn't even pull the car into it.  I don't know why...

4. What's the one food you'll NEVER cook?

I don't know... There's foods I don't eat, yet I still cook them.  I probably wouldn't cook something weird like dog.

5. Do you have anything exciting planned for the summer?

Yes!  We're taking a road trip to Alberta to visit with some family.  I'm actually really excited about it (maybe not the actual roadtrip.  2 days each way with an almost-4 year old and an 18 month old.  That part should be interesting).  We're going to take them to West Edmonton Mall and Drumheller, both places I've never been either. 

Other than that, not much else is planned.  Danny will be working crazy hours again so it's a lot of solo-mommy time, in between working


  1. Let's see: no, yes, yes, not sure, and hopefully! new follower from the blog hop, would love a follow back

  2. Sauerkraut is awful lol, My mom was sweet enough to bring dinner one day. It was stuffed cabbage. Which has sauerkraut. Of course I couldn't gag when I walked in and my house reeked of it! :)

    Thanks for the follow, following back!


  3. ew dog haha, sounds like a fun trip! -Jessica

  4. Your questions reminded me of so many things my parents did when I was growing up! New to your blog, please stop by at and follow back when you can!

  5. LOL - I wouldn't cook dog (or cat) either!

    When I traveled with my nieces when hewere little, I made them "swag bags" for the trip. Dollar Stores were always great to find little car-friendly toys and books to put in the bag for about $5 per kid.

  6. If I won't eat it, I don't cook it. Somebody else can, but that's one sacrifice of being a mom I'm not willing to make. As for the rest...I take things in stride and enjoy my family. It's the best gift I've ever received in this world!

  7. I would not cook dog either and yet that strikes me funny as in the political world of late eating dog was a debatable situation LOL
