Five Question Friday

Head over to Mama M's to participate in Five Question Friday! 

1.  Have you ever testified in court?  For what?
No.  But I would LOVE to.  I would also love to have jury duty but I've never been picked!

2. Do you still have your wedding dress?
It's still at the cleaners...4 years later.  I'm fairly certain I won't be going to get it seeing how the marriage turned out.

3.  Is there a special place you like to go when you're happy, sad, stressed, etc?
I used to like to drive around in my car with my music turned up real loud but I can't now with Belli in the car.

4.  If you have kids, do they sleep with you?  If you don't have kids will you let them sleep with you when/if you have them.
No. No. NO!  This is a major no no for me.  Belli has only slept in my bed twice in her whole life.  Once when she was sick and once when she was scared of some caterpillars in her room (that didn't exist) and she had woken up five nights in a row and I just didn't want to deal with it anymore.  I am very anti cosleeping in my house.

5.  Do you watch late night tv?
I used to watch Jay Leno.  Especially on Monday when he would have all those funny newspaper clipping with funny headlines.  I don't really watch anymore though.

The Special Needs Mother Club

It's not something you would ever want to be in but it can certainly be rewarding too. 

Since I have started this blog I have had four people contact me who have children with Larsen's that were seeking information. 

And recently I had a friend of mine who has a little boy that was in Belli's class for a few years contact me about a friend of hers whose just found out her son would be having spinal surgery.

I hate that Belli's and I have been through all that we have but I LOVE that I am able to help those in need of someone to talk to!

See, it can be rewarding!

Five Question Friday

Head over to Mama M's to join in on Five question Friday!

1.  Have you ever forgotten your child in a store or at school?
I've definitely never left her at a store but there was one time a couple of years ago when she was in MDO so I could go to class that I almost forgot her.  Class got out early one day so I went home to lay down for a little bit before I had to go get her.  I was supposed to pick her up at 2 and the next thing I know I wake up at it was 1:55.  I was WAY late picking her up.  So I guess I didn't technically forget her...I just fell asleep.

2.  Where did you go on you first date?
I actually don't remember...Most of the guys I dated where people I actually knew already so there was never really a "first date" per se.

3.  What's your "silly" fear?
Insects.  Any insect.  OH. MY. GOD.

4.  Confrontation:  do you cause it, deal with it as it comes, or run far far away from it?
It depends on the situation.  I will cause it if I need to or avoid it if I don't think it's necessary.

5.  Wood floors or carpet?
I am currently a big fan of the laminate wood flooring.
