Five Question Friday for June 3, 2011

What a crazy day I had yesterday.  It started off slowly; but, then the afternoon picked up.

It started shortly after lunch when I went to the twins' school to watch Boo give an oral presentation.  They are learning about animals and their habitats (les animeaux et où ils vivent).  Boo's animal was a dolphin (un dauphin).  He did really well only stumbling over some words like the dauphindae, the family a dolphin belongs to.  Then it was home to prepare dinner for Boo, Pickle and Mr. Twingle as they were headed out to Boo's lacrosse photos and game.  Oh and did I mention Boo was also on drink duty?  
Then Pretty and I headed off to Banquet for the Guiding groups.  I had to be there early to let the caterer in since I have the key and at the end of the evening, Pretty had to hang around while the other Guiders and I cleaned up.   Needless to say I slept well last night!

Thank Goodness it's Friday and time for the weekend!  I'm giving a Stampin' Up!® demonstration tomorrow, which will be a lot of fun, and then we're having dinner and scrapbooking the rest of the night!  Yay!

In the meantime, it's time for Five Question Friday.  It's been a while since I've played along so I thought I would answer both last weeks and this weeks questions.  Go on over to My Little Life to link up and play along.

Questions from May 27, 2011

1.  Do you apologize to your kids?
I do...when it's deserved.  Although, it's never easy to admit you're wrong it is important to teach your kids the value of a sincere apology and that it's okay to admit when you're wrong.

2.  What colour are your nails right now?
My fingers are natural with just a clear coat on top.  I'm not a huge fan of colour on my fingers.  I think mainly because it chips and flakes off so quickly.  Being a mom isn't easy on the hands.  They're constantly in and out of water, dirty diapers, digging in mud, etc.
My toes however are flourescent pink with a white flower on the big toe!  I love having pretty toes, especially during sandal season.

3.  When you were growing up, how difficult was it for you to stay home from school sick?  (As in, did you have to vomit or just say "I don't feel well"?)
I don't think I ever faked being sick.  I'm one of those weirdos who actually liked school and didn't want to miss it.

4.  When was the last time you bought a new comforter for your bed?
Does a duvet cover count?  If yes, then about a year and a half ago after our last one fell apart.

5.  Favourite website(s)?
For a good laugh, damnyouautocorrect.com.  This site is so funny.  I actually woke the twins one night because I was laughing so hard!  The one that caused my hysterical laughter can be found here.

For mom stuff, momstown.ca.  There's no better community for moms that I've found.  With lots of support and activities for the whole family, momstown can't be beat.

Questions for today, June 3, 2011

1.  If you had to choose, how would you prefer to spend your money...on landscaping or a pool?
This is an odd question, I mean don't the two usually go hand in hand?
I think I would have to say landscaping.  I mean as great as a pool would be on those hot and sticky summer days; it's only functional two-three months of the year.  At least I could enjoy the landscaping for three quarters of the year.

2.  Death penalty, yay or nay?
I'm a big YAY on this one.
I can't think of anything worse than a prisoner, like say, Paul Bernardo, being set free to repeat his crimes.

3.  What's the worst thing your kid has gotten into when you turned your back/blogged/showered/blinked?
I think the worst has got to be when the twins were about 20 months or so.  There were in toddler beds in their room (they still shared) and we could hear through the monitor that they weren't napping.  I went up to find that Boo had climbed the dresser, despite childlocks, and had tossed a brand new bottle of Aveno Baby Lotion to Pretty who was using it to finger paint on the ultra suede covered glider.
Needless to say, all I could do was cry.  Have you ever tried to clean lotion off of ultra suede?  It's not easy and my glider has never been the same; although it does smell good :P


4.  How often do you REALLY go to the dentist?
Since both Mr. Twingle and I are self-employed, we don't have the luxury of benefits.  Thus making trips to the dentist very expensive.  We send the kids once a year; but, Mr. Twingle and I only go if and when there is a problem...bad, I know :\

5.  What is your favourite animal (doesn't have to be a pet-type animal)?
I LOVE pigs.  They're just so cute.
An incredibly smart.  If it were possible to have a pet pig in a residential area, I totally would!  A Portuguese potbelly named Moo!
