Shannon's brave idea...

Shannon did this post all about her, and though I doubt very much I'm interesting enough for you to wonder about, if you have any burning questions you'd like to ask me, now would be the time. Neisha also did this post...I'm still thinking about what I can ask her. Anonymous comments enabled for anyone afraid to post with your name, but there's really no reason to be afraid! ;0)

Here's the video that seemingly was the inspiration...I wanna Talk about Me!

amber, you are VERY interesting! I'm trying to think of a good question to ask, not some cheesy, cornball one ;) I've debated doing this on my blog.. but I doubt I'd get too far, since our blog is in "hicktown" :)

here's a starter question...
What do you LOVE about yourself the most and WHY?

Amber said...

I take care of my friends, even the ones that aren't very good to me...I'm also blunt, which I like because I don't think people are worth much when they can't be genuinely themselves.

most embarassing moment?

Amber said...

When I was expectin gBrookelyn, we stayed with some friends for a few days..apparently they caught on that I was starving because we were playing cards one night and she had baked a cake. He asked of anyone wanted any and I said i'd have some and he said, as he handed over the whole cake, "do you just want a fork?" I was mortified and hurt. As soon as enough time passed that it wouldn't be obvious, I went into their bathroom and cried.

Ben, Heather & kids said...

aww.. That's TERRIBLE and RUDE..#1- just because you're pregant doesn't mean you're automatically a pig, #2.. hello, he must have not heard pregant women are hormonal..(it would have been rude to say to anyone, much less a pregnant woman)

Here's the question I thought of:

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? And it CANNOT be physical.. like you can't be more beautiful (which you are by the way) and you can't change your body/looks!

Amber said...

Aww...thanks:0) I would be less critical. I constantly critique (in my head) and sometimes it comes out (of my mouth) when it shouldn't...there are ways to do things that are different from the way I'd do them and I need to be more accepting of other people doing it their way. I'd also slow down. I'm always in a hurry whether I need to be or not.

Jenny said...

I think it's great that you're blunt. I tend to be too. My husband says he appreciates my honesty. I wonder why anyone would not want to be honest and direct.
Hmmm...a question.
Do you ever feel insecure as a mother? I ask because I do. I feel like I'm lost and don't know what I'm doing a lot of times.

Heather said...

Okay, so who's your favorite cousin? Haha...just kidding!!;0) Hmmm...can't really think of anything to ask...lemme think on that one...;0)

Amber said...

Jenny: All the time...I worry I discipline them too much or not enough, when they have runny noses I feel like people think I just don't bother wiping it, when I find them socks and somewhere between home and meeting they go missing I feel like people assume I didn't bother to find them any, if they end up with a atain and I don't have an outfit change I feel lik people think I didn't do laundry, (for the record my kids have never started out with dirty clothes), I guess I worry all the time about their appearance...I feel like I yell to much and it may scar them, I feel insecure about not loving to comb Brookelyn's hair, I feel bad that all my kids have scars of some sort...the list goes on and on. If people want to cut deep they just have to say, insinuate, hint at me being a bad or unfit mother. If I never do anything else right, I just want my kids to remember me as a good Mom.

Heather...actually you are my favorite, I wouldn't just say that either!

Neisha said...

Ok, on the topic of kids...do you feel overwhelmed with having 4 kids?

Amber said...

It is overwhelming some days, but I am grateful everyday that I get to be their Mom. I feel complete now and have always envisioned myself with 4 children and wouldn't have it any other way. Of course sometimes I want to put my head in my hands and sob and there are days I want to leave the kids with their Daddy and get a few hours of quiet and I wish I could sleep for as long as my body would let me....but I know soon enough my kids won't depend on me anymore so I want to savor the moments with them and be thankful each day that I have healthy kids. I never want to take it for granted that I'll always have them.

Ben, Heather & kids said...

It's good to read your comments about kids. I think it's reassuring for me to know I'm not alone.

Duey and Kandace said...

I enjoy following your blog.
On your earlier comment about being worried about what others are thinking= Anyone can see/tell how much you love your kids, and you should be proud of yourself!

Is there anything(s) you would like to re-live?

Amber said...

My wedding/honeymoon...and I'd love to re-live a day with each of my kids when they were newborn. I'd love to go back and see how tiny they were and how different each of them really are because we say they all look alike, but then when we compare pictures, they are much more different than I remember. I think they all just get rooled into the baby of the moment, and you forget a little more with each one.

Shannon said...

i'd love to relive any vacation that we took prior to kids. i love my kids and vacation wouldn't be the same without them but boy wasn't it fantastic to vacation without the added responsibility!

Amber said...

No doubt...and any vacation now without them would make me stress over whether they're okay or not and how thy're doing, therefore wouldn't be as care free as it was when all I had to worry about was myself, which my Mom and Dad were also doing...someday.

Heather said...

Awww....thanks, Amber!;0) Still can't think of anything to ask...I guess growing up together I kinda know some things...and if there's something else you want me to know, you'll tell me...;0)
