Kid Memories of Mom – Clean Your Room!

“Copy this note, ask your kid(s) the questions and write them down exactly how they respond. Send this back to me, I’d love to hear the answers.”

Well, that’s a little twist on Facebook tag. My sister sent this to me with her teen kids’ fun answers attached (#3 “no chocolate in the house,” #5 “it’s a mystery”). Unfortunately, my youngest and I had to quit the survey after her first three answers were all related to “Clean your room” and the next few were met with confused looks followed by “I don’t know.” I tell myself, “she’s a tween and too busy to pay attention to me,” while she says, “Ask my sister, she’s known you longer.” (Sister is away at college.)

So try these out on your kids – if you dare – and see what kind of memories they’ll have of you. Good luck!
