Marianne said...

What a cute posting...

Matt and Heather said...

That was such a cute idea!
Your kids are so dang adorable :)

Kiersten said...

What a cute quiz for your kids...I might try it.
I feel like I'm always doing laundry too :)

Shelley said...

not only are you always doing laundry, but you do it FAST! and too bad about you not being able to bawk like a chicken. i never knew that was one of your weaknesses. good to know. now i have something to make fun of you about.

Gotta love anyone who has her kids convinced shrimp is one of her favorite foods.

And cheesecake.

I didn't know you tooted (if that's what I think it is)! And I love that your laundry skills make Whitney proud, they'd make me proud too if you were my mom:)

I love that tooting and snorting make you laugh. Some moms probably don't find that entertaining, but it just makes life so much better if you can laugh at kids' toots and snorts. They seem to make noises like that a lot.

Darling post! They really know you pretty well. I might just copy your idea.

That's really cute! Its so funny to see how the kids perceive their parents...your husband must feel so lucky to get to go on dates with a piano-playing woman who toots and snorts like a pig:)

Troy and Jessica said...

So cute! I LOVE what kids say!

Mom Sweat said...

You DO look like Jane from Little Einsteins! Hope you're having a great week - thanks for all the great pics!

Julie said...

I think it's great that your kids are proud of you because you do the laundry "so fast". I do laundry....and I fold it in the family room.....and I put it in the baskets.....but "fast" is not an adverb I would use when it finally gets in all the right drawers. Rock on, Andrea! Barbie says the thing she doesn't like about laundry is that it is never done. Hugs to you and your beautiful family. Aunt Julie

My favorite comment was the tooting. Nice.

Laurie said...

This is a cute idea. Your kids articulate well b/c I think a lot of kids would just say "I don't know." Love the Little Einsteins comment.
