Five Question Friday

Hello, Friday, so good to see you again! We currently have no set plans for the weekend and I’m glad about that because that’s not likely to happen again until maybe February… or ever.

On the way to school this morning, the following conversation occurred:
Liam: I’m not happy with just Jack.
Me: Oh really, did Jack do something to upset you.
Liam: No, I think we should have more than two kids. We need three.
Me: Well, I don’t know that we are going to have any more kids.
Liam: But God knows… and Jesus.

This comes after a conversation we had yesterday where he was trying to pin me down on exactly how the doctor got the baby out of my body. So I asked him how HE thought it happened and he said he didn’t know but he did know that the doctor didn’t just reach in my throat and pull it out because their hands would be too big. [No kidding.] Actually, it comes after multiple conversations on all different aspects of being pregnant and having babies – someone has babies on the brain and it is NOT me. It kind of cracks me up and makes me wonder if he knows something I don’t about God’s plan for our family… he regularly says God tells him things, like is morning God told him to push the booger back in his nose rather than blow it out.

On that note, Five Question Friday…

1. Do you have a go to song that always puts you in a good mood?
I love music – duh, I have a fairly regular Music Monday posting/feature thingy – and I also have a number of songs that put me in a good mood, but there is one that tops the list: Babylon by David Gray, I just love the music intro and the moment I hear it, I smile.

2. Are you a real Christmas tree kinda person or do you go with a real fake one?
Fake all the way, I hate the needles. But as I mentioned yesterday, we haven’t put up a Christmas tree in ages. We just enjoy the one at my parents’ house.

3. What are you thankful for?
So much… family, friends, good health, good jobs, Diet Coke and coffee, church community – that about covers it. And in case you missed it, I am thankful for people who say the right things at certain points in our lives.

4. Which fashion fad from the past do you wish you could wear today?
I’m pretty happy with where fashion is at the moment (minus leggings or jeggings, I just can’t get behind those for myself). Though I thing I would have loved the 70s – tie dye, muumuus, bell bottoms… all appealing.

5. Do you wait until the “low fuel” light comes on before you fill up the gas tank?
Usually not, but lately, it’s come on quite a few times. I think because my husband and I swap cars so often, I feel like I’m always putting gas in a car so I think it doesn’t need to be done in whatever one I’m driving and then the stupid light comes on and I’m like whoopsies. (Just like that, yes.) I could never understand how people could run out of gas but then I had two kids and a full-time job and other commitments and now I fully understand, apparently in the past I just wasn’t distracted enough to have that happen.

Happy weekend, y’all!

Linking up with Mama M for Five Question Friday!

  1. That Liam is a smart smart kid. 🙂

  2. we are fake christmas tree people as well come see me at and see my answers

  3. Consider this my warning to not drive with me. Matt and I used to have ‘contests’ to see who could get the closest to empty without running out of gas – receipts were our evidence. now that i have a car with a digital display of how many miles left to empty, i far too frequently wait UNTIL it hits 0 and then find the nearest Costco (because not just any station will do). Talk about procrastinating …
