There must be a vacation for Five Question Friday. So sad. I am seriously bummed. Spent a wonderful two and a half days on my own– spent some time in Amish Country. Wonderful and beautiful times. Very relaxing. Well, since I missed last week’s Five Question Friday, I thought I would answer those questions instead… so, here we go…

1. Have you ever been robbed and how did you handle it?
I have never had anything major stolen– not to long ago, I had some cash taken from my desk drawer at work. I don’t know who did it, but obviously they needed the $1.35 more than I did for a pop.
2. What do you do at a kids function when Parents don’t behave? Meaning they are the ones being impatient and rude.
I try to steer my kids away from them. I hate that– especially at sporting events when they are hard on their kids. I just want to turn to them and say “This isn’t the freaking NFL and there isn’t a scholarship riding on it.” But, to make a point… there was one kid whose parents (okay, dad) was always on him during sporting events– he was in a lot of sports with my brother. I did turn to him one day and told him to shut up and to stop before his kid turned into a druggie and was good-for-nothing. Hmmm… guess what… his kid turned into a druggie and good-for-nothing. Let the kids have fun people… let them have fun.
3. Have you heard of a potty party? Will you/have you had one for your child(ren)?
I have two 4 year olds… everytime I go to the potty it is a potty party… kids, dog… In seriousness though, I have never heard of a potty party. Kinda weird.
4. How young do you think kids should be when they start taking swim lessons?
Around 3 or 4. Which, I need to get my kids signed up for. However, I took lessons at 4. I had a lot of ear problems growing up and had to drop out because I kept getting swimmers ear… and to this day I can’t swim and it scares me knowing I probably couldn’t save my kids. I have dreams/nightmares about it sometimes. That being said, I have plans to take swimming lessons because I was promised that I could go kayaking as soon as I did.
5. What makes you happy?
Hearing my kids laugh. Their uncontrollable belly-laughs. The laughs that make me laugh. The laughs that leave us lying on the floor gasping for breath.
