I'm joining Mama M. at My Little Life
for her Five Question Friday.
Establish boundaries with your in-laws from the get go. Never, ever complain to your mother-in-law about your spouse. Always defend your spouse to any and all negative comments from your family. Oh, and DON'T sweat the small stuff and always kiss each other goodbye and goodnight.
2. If you could tell your 16 year old self ONE thing, what would it be?
You're not fat, you're not ugly and he's not the only guy in town who will date you and being a teenage mom is really, really hard. Okay, I know that's more than one thing...but it all ties together.
3. What do you do to keep cool in the summer? (AC, windows, fans, swimming, etc.)
Open up the south facing windows and let in the afternoon ocean breeze, it's better than AC. We do have a window AC unit in the master bedroom, but that's reserved for use only when it's too hot for my hubby to sleep at night-he drives a concrete mixer through the mean streets of LA and needs to be fully rested to safely do his job. Or if I'm having a hot flash, then I'm turning that thing on high and camping out in front of it!
4. What did you (or your wife) crave most while pregnant?
I only had cravings with baby #4 (of 5) and I craved those nasty tacos from Jack-in-the-Box. I worked the swing shift during that pregnancy and stopped for two of them every night on the way home from work. I still love them, but won't eat them-I've sworn off fast food.
5. Who is your favorite TV mom? Why?
It's a tie between Roseanne and Lois from Malcom in the Middle. They were the most real TV moms in history. Their kids weren't perfect and they knew it and accepted it and loved their kids all the same...like me!
