The 25 Things about me band wagon...with a twist

If you're on Facebook you already know what I'm talking about. For those of you who haven't heard of the 25 things about me lists (or Facebook for all that's worth), it's a list of tidbits about the author that's sent on to his or her friends. Those friends come up with their own versions and send that out to even more friends and so on and so on. My husband was the first one to send me one these and since then I have received a fist full. I've enjoyed learning some pretty interesting things about my buddies, things that I probably wouldn't have learned otherwise. And, let's face it, for a word whore like me those lists are a just another opportunity for me to write something.

So I've decided to put a list here, maybe you'll learn a little something about me that you didn't know before, and hopefully you'll post your own lists under mine. I think the list may become a Friday tradition so keep checking back.

25 things I hear my kids say everyday...and my answers.

  1. Have you seen my shoes, shirt, brush, Ipod, homework, backpack, sister.... I don't know, I don't pay attention to what you do with your shoes, shirts, brushes, Ipod....
  2. What's for dinner? Food.
  3. Ummm, I don't like what we're having for dinner. Can I make a sandwich? I don't care, just don't make a mess.
  4. There's this movie on t.v. and I haven't seen it in a long time and it goes off at 10:30 (lights out is ten at my house) can I finish watching it please? Didn't you just watch that last week?
  5. Is it going to snow tonight? No, you have to finish your homework because there will be school tomorrow.
  6. Can I use the phone? (I'm basically like an air traffic controller with the phone, I've got to clear them for landing so they don't fight over whose turn it is.)
  7. I have a headache. Well, take something for it. (Remember I have three teenage girls, one always has a headache.)
  8. I'm sleepy. That's because you stayed up watching that movie last night.
  9. I had a really bad day, my teacher is so mean, the bus driver yelled at me. If you had to deal with several hundred middle schoolers everyday you'd be mean too.
  10. Can I stay after school or Will you pick me up after school? Well, I have to pick up your sister so I'll pick you up after that. I live to serve.
  11. I'll put that away as soon as I'm done. Yeah right.
  12. There's nothing to eat. Yes there is, you just have to make it.
  13. I can't find it. Look on the second shelf, right hand side, right beside the box of ...
  14. I still can't find it! Hold on I'm coming.
  15. As soon as I get up and am on my way to help... Oh I found it!
  16. I am so cold. Well, put more clothes on. Or why aren't you wearing socks?
  17. Stop it, don't, leave me alone, you took my..., don't come in my room, etc. I want to hear you people fight like I want to claw my own eyes out.
  18. Does this look okay? Do you want me to be honest or make you feel good?
  19. Hug me. DO I have to? (Like I would say no.)
  20. I didn't do it. Ughh, no one EVER did it!
  21. Is there ice cream? You don't get dessert every night!
  22. I need a ___ for school. Do I have to get it right now, or can it wait until the next time I go out? (This one usually comes right at bedtime, or right after I've put my pajamas on.)
  23. Why is Emily allowed to do that, but I'm not? Because Em is 16 and you're 13.
  24. Can I go on My Space? Who are you going to talk to on there?
  25. SO then I went to my locker and I saw this boy and I told her and she said and then... YOU ARE STANDING RIGHT IN FRONT OF THE T.V. AND IT'S THE LAST 30 SECONDS OF TOP CHEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! TELL ME AS SOON AS I SEE WHO PACKS THEIR KNIVES THIS WEEK!!!
  26. I love you. I love you too, punk.
