A Post Inspired by 5QF Jun 09

I’m sure you’re all surprised to see me post for 5QF again. Not. There are a ton of small things going on around here and it doesn’t leave a ton of time to blog. I do have a couple posts in the works though, so maybe I can get some things posted in the next week or so.

Anyway, to play along, link up with Mama M.

1. How close to your childhood dreams is your life now?
This is difficult. As a child, I wanted to be everything, including a SAHM like I am. Usually though, my dreams involved something in the medical profession. I might get there once the babes get into “real” school. We’ll see. 🙂

2. What is one must have item for the summer?
Watermelon.

3. Do you have your kids stay up on school stuff during summer vacation? (Or, if you don’t have kiddos, did your parents make you keep up on school stuff during summer?)
My daughter’s only 2, so she’s ALWAYS learning. I try to avoid workbooks for this age, and just try to expose her to life. This has become even more difficult than usual, because on top of my usual introverted issues, the pregnancy gets in the way as well.

My mom never made us keep up on school stuff over summer. She thought my brother and I were both crazy when we voluntarily took summer school (both of us the summer before our junior years). When we were real young, like K-2nd, she always made sure she knew our strengths and weaknesses from the previous year, so she could help us remember right before the next year started. Just a little refresher before the new year started. 🙂

4. Do you can or freeze fresh produce?
No. I wouldn’t mind learning how, but it’s not a big thing for me right now.

5. Do you get ready for the day first thing in the morning?
No. I hate mornings. If I need to be somewhere before 11am, I put everything together the night before. If plans are after 11, I might wait and get ready in the morning. If no plans turn into plans, it all depends on how much prep it will take me in order to get ready. 😉 I’ve become a pro at prepping for activities though, so it usually doesn’t take too long to leave once I’ve put my mind to it!
