30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me – Day 1 #30things

Kelly over at A Mother’s Design shared a link called 30 things my kids should know about me.  I thought, hey, it was cool and fun, so why not?

Day 1: List 20 random facts about yourself

Fair enough.

1.) I have naturally curly hair.

2.) Because I was teased about my hair so much as a kid, I will never leave my house without my hair being done.

3.) I am a die hard dog lover.

4.) My puppies sleep with me.

5.) I like a clean house.  A lot.

6.) I particularly enjoy watching Hoarders while I clean.

7.) Watching Hoarders and the knowledge that we’re done having children has made me particularly ruthless about getting rid of things.

8.) I’m fascinated by our ancestry.

9.) I’d much rather wake up early than stay up late.

10.) My favorite flowers are a toss up between roses and gardenias.

11.) Coincidentally enough, none of them grow well where I live now.

12.) When I stop having babies in cloth diapers, it will be a very, very sad day.

13.) At least I have cloth trainers to make the transition slightly less painful.

14.) I’m not pushing the potty training thing so much because I have a whole lot of diapers.

15.) I can happily walk two miles through the woods but will complain about walking two blocks on the sidewalk.

16.) Cats make me wheeze.

17.) So do most perfumes.

18.) And chemical propellents.

19.) And The Body Shop.

20.) Natural fragrances are nice.

21.) I like essential oils and vanilla extract for fragrance.

22.) Lush also makes wonderful bath products that I can breathe in.

23.) I have five diaper bags.

24.) But only one purse.

25.) I haven’t actually carried that purse in many years.

26.) I’m really, really sick of Elmo.

27.) I hope that Norton gets more interested in trains so that we can build awesome train track layouts together in the living room.

28.) I really hope that Eudora wants to play Barbies.

29.) I still have the handmade crocheted Barbie doll dresses that my grandmother made for me.

30.) I’m more soft-hearted than I seem.

Did any of these things surprise you?

  2. 🙂 I loved this, and I love the show Hoarders. But… my blog is A Mother’s Design, not Adventures in Fluff ;). Love her blog though

  3. I was quite sad when Hoarders stopped being available on Netflix. (We don’t have cable)
