Interview with Mom

I saw this float around on Facebook, and other blogs. It was an interview Moms did with their small children. Well, mine only has a vocabulary of about 6 words. I don't think it would work with him. Every answer would be Mama or Bye Bye, with some incomprehensible gibberish thrown in for good measure. With that being said, I swiped it and decided to answer the questions about my Mom. Now that I'm all grown up(you can laugh here if you would like), she's my BFF.

1. What is something mom always says to you?
"I love you"

2. What makes mom happy?

3. What makes mom sad?
"Anything that hurts her babies"

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
"She doesn't get our(Dad, Jesse, and Me) sarcasm and humor sometimes. That's OK Mom, neither does Chad or Amy, or possible the rest of the known world."

5. What was your mom like as a child?
"Uhm, I don't know how to answer that. I've only known her as an adult."

6. How old is your mom?
"Do you think I'm insane?"

7. How tall is your mom?
"Taller than I am, but that's not saying very much"

8. What is her favorite thing to watch on TV?
"Paula Deen, and anything on HGTV"

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
"Probably has a party, and is thankful her house is quite again for a few days. No, in all seriousness, she is very busy helping Dad with his ministry."

10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
"Making sweet tea. Hers is the best. No matter how hard I try, mine is never as good."

11. What is your mom really good at?
"Cooking, and Research"

What is your mom not very good at?
"Again, do you think I'm insane?"

13. What does your mom do for her job?
"She's the preacher's wife. That's a job all to itself."

14. What is your mom's favorite food?
"I have no idea. I guess because she would always cave to what Dad, or Jesse and I wanted. Mom, what's your favorite food?"

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
"Everything. She is an amazing lady and friend."

16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?
"Jane Jetson. Don't know why, she's just the only one I could think of."

17. What do you and your mom do together?
"Shop, eat, talk, shop, eat, talk. Sometime we change the order up a little for the sake of variety."

18. How are you and your mom the same?
"We are both preacher's wives, short, freckled, like massages(but really who doesn't), and pedicures.

19. How are you and your mom different?
"I am super obsessive, organized, and incredibly up tight about absolutely everything. Mom is super relaxed, and can go with the flow so much better than I can. I need to be more like her."

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
"She is always there for all of us. I mean, if you need something, no matter how small or seemingly silly, she will drop what she's doing and be right there for you. I've never really thought about that. I guess I have just always known that Mom loved us more than she loved her own life."

21. What does your mom like most about your dad?
"Dad takes care of Mom, in a way that is so incredibly sweet. I don't know if this is the right answer, but on the outside looking in, this is my favorite part."

22. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?
"Savannah, and Key West"

Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!!!! If you can, tell your Mom how much that you lover, and how much she means to you. Love ya Mom!!!!!!!!!

How sweet of you to think of me.I so enjoyed the stages when you and your brother, Jesse were in the home. When the home is still and quiet I still find myself missing those days.It actually happened one night this week. But it is so wonderful to be able to enjoy having adult children and adult relationships with you and your brother. God has blest me so in spite of me when He allowed you and Jesse to be a part of my life. Icing on the cake is grandchildren.
Loved all your answers,and outside the Lord my life is for your dad, your brother and you and the extras that you all bring with you(the in-laws and grandbabies). I do love you all more than life itself. And count it an honor to be your mom and to be allowed by God to be a mom to two amazing children.

You were so scared when you brought Clayton home, but I had no doubt that God would work in you and meet the needs daily. You are an amazing Mom and it shows and has been wonderful to watch you transform from being a young lady to a wife and now to being a mom. God is so good to us all.

Happy Mothers Day, baby

Hi Nikki! My mom told me about your Dad's site about a month ago, and I found your and Joan's site also. It has become a daily habit to chec in with you guys. It is amazing to see what a strong woman you have grown up to be. I was one of the older youth at G.B., and you and Jesse were the preacher's kids and younger than me. Sometimes I can't believe we're still not little kids at Lake James. I don't know when I first felt it hit me that I was part of the Mom club. One day though I was driving home from work and the boys were chattering in the backseat, and my mind was tired and foggy, and racing thru everything I needed to get done when I got home, and all of a sudden it cleared. I thought how did I get here? When did the old me turn into a married mom of two boys? I had been so egear to speed things up and be an adult, to make something of myself, and without relizing it, I was there! Although life is crazy as a mom I wouldn't change a thing.Regardless of what I do from here on out they will always be my greatest accoplishment. Life may never be simple or easy every again, and I may not sleep again for 18years, but they are my joy. I have been praying for Johanna, and will continue to do so. No one knows what God's plans are with her, but if the worst were to happen know that you will always be her mother and no one could ever deny that she was loved and your child. If it helps, Noah my three year old was a twin, and I lost the twin at 8weeks. I don't know if it was a boy or girl, but I am that child's mother too. A friend told me that it hadn't had time to become a baby, but it was my baby before I ever knew that it had been there. I believe that that child will be in heaven when I get there, and will know that I am their mother. To myself I like to think because it was faternal, and I have two boys that it was a girl, and her name is Natalee. I would have kept with the "n" names, because I have Nick and Noah. Anyway, I'm not sure why I shared that, it's not something I ever really talk about. Most moms have that in common, the ability to love their child before they ever saw them face to face, and to love without it ever running out. When I first laid eyes on Nicholas I thought It would never be possible to love another child that much. But when Noah came along it was just as strong and endless.
