So, what do you think your KIDS would say (provided they're verbal), if we asked them what their mom is like?

What kind of Mom do you have? Or something to that effect, with age appropriateness in mind.

I've got three teenagers, 19, 17, and 14.

I think they'd say something like, DUDE, DIRT, and MEH. (That is provided they felt like acknowledging the question at all.)

Good question. I think I'll ask my 8 yr old tonight. I'll have her write it down, She needs to practice writing anyway for school. lol
They asked her at school before "What was your mom like when she was little?" and she wrote.... Special!! So I thought that was pretty cool : )

answers from Dallas on

Mine are still little enough to like me. ..hehe. I hope that doesn't go away! They regularly tell me what a nice mom I am and how much they love me. It doesn't mean they get away with whatever they want (in case it sounds that way!). Even if I lose my cool, they are quick to forgive and let it go. Overall they seem to think I'm pretty easy to talk to, be with, and love. Maybe it's just part of them being so young still!

answers from New York on

I already know. My son's very verbal. (Soon to be 13.) Here's what he has said lately:
1. You're a lot cooler than Dad.
2. My mom's got a really bad case of ADD!
3. "Who says you can't remember stuff, you just remember what you want to."
4. Why can't you play....
5. Why are you always busy?
6. Mom, be careful I don't want you to get hurt and die!
7. Go away, mom! (Usualy when he wants to do something himself and doesn't want help or when he's on the phone or talking to his friends on the computer.) lol....Yes, I'm an "evil mom"....I like to bug him.

answers from St. Louis on

excellent! Both are busy/gone right now. Can't wait to ask them....I'll EDIT later 2nite!

24yo son: MOTHER in all connotations of the word, caring, bad aim when angry, ....& finally he hit..."Mom, will you please stop. You're making it too easy for me to mouth off". Whatever....

15yo son: evil, crazy, you believe in hard work, you keep track of too many things about us, a good cook when you want to be one - otherwise it's yo-yo for dinner, chaffeur every day for band practice before school, .....& then he said, "okay, that's enough, you're driving me nuts. Can we please go to the JV football now?" LOL!

My 12 yo said, "Ummm, you're pretty good."

My 9 yo said, "You make the best pancakes."

That was it.

Yeah, I'm feeling pretty special right about now! lol

Next time I think I will ask them when their noses aren't buried in their books and they actually look up at me when they answer!

answers from New York on

My 16 year old daughter would say that I'm awesome. Really. She thinks I top all of the other moms she knows.
My 12 year old would likely say I was pretty good but not quite as good as dad.
