A's to your Q's (part 2)

More answers to the questions you asked in this post!

Q:
Which of my boys do you think Chickie should marry?
-LEstes65
A:
Whichever one is the richest, of course. That's a vital part of MY retirement plan.

Q:
Do these pants make me look fat?
-LEstes65
A:
Okay, here's the thing. The pants came to me the other day and asked me, "Does the person wearing us make us look fat?" Not wanting to interfere in what may be a codependent relationship between you and your pants, I'm going to let the two of you work that out on your own. Communication is key!

Q:
How do you get to the end of the day without posting one of your children on freecycle? (Can you tell I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting to having 2 kids?)
-nopinkhere
A:
Well, right now they're watching Dora, so that helps. Oops, did I really say that? Seriously, I try not to force myself to live up to some arbitrary standard of perfection. I'm not going to be the perfect mom to either of them, so we do what we have to, even if that involves turning on the TV. (And as that baby grows, it really does get easier! Also, since you live close to me, you could always call me for a playdate....)

Q:
Where does the green go when the leaves turn color?
-2cats
A:
It flies on the autumn winds to the southern hemisphere of the globe, just in time for their spring.

Q:
If Santa lives at the North Pole, does the Easter Bunny live at the South Pole? Where does the Tooth Fairy live?
-2cats
A:
No, the Easter Bunny lives in a cushy little addition to my house, where he watches all the Netflix he wants in exchange for providing me with year-round chocolate. (No, I'm not sharing.) The Tooth Fairy lives in the sewers. (Just as Santa comes down through the chimney, the Tooth Fairy comes up through the tub drain. This fact is not well-known, as it might decrease her popularity.)

Q:
If you could move to any US state (not including the one you currently live) what state would you pick?
-caryn
A:
Oh, definitely Arizona. I'd really like to live closer to my parents.

Q:
If you could swap lives with some one for a day, who would it be, why and what would you do?
-Fannyfanackapan
A:
President Obama. Sorry to be so generic, but I think it would give me so many insights on how the country works. I don't think I'd use the day to make drastic changes; anything I did could be undone. But while it might not be country-changing, I bet it would be life-changing for me.

Q:
What are the kids doing right now? Describe their activity, the sounds they are making (or not). Are you joining in? Why/Why not?
-Crazy Mo
A:
Chickie is watching Dora, very quietly, while laying on the couch. I didn't have her take a nap today; I'm hoping she'll go to bed early since we have to get up early for our flight back home tomorrow. But the poor kiddo is tuckered out after walking around Boston half the day. Zoodle is stomping around the house, doing something fun. Being in my sister's house has been really entertaining for them; all my niece's toys and books seem so much more exciting than the ones they're used to at home!

This has been a lovely long weekend in Boston. We'll head home tomorrow (well, it'll be today once this is posted on Tuesday morning), and then Friday I'll fly back here by myself with Daddy taking kid duty for the weekend. Saturday morning my sister, brother-in-law, and I will drive into New York City, and we'll stay there overnight. I'll come home on Sunday, ending this manic, fantastic season of travel.

I shouldn't be surprised to hear about the Tooth Fairy living in the sewers. I mean, she collects teeth that have fallen out of of someone's head. Totally a sewer-dweller.

Glad you're all having fun. Hope your flight home is safe and uneventful.

Great post - thoroughly enjoyed it.

As always, great answers. Very diplomatic on the pants thing. I'm pretty sure one of my boys will want to marry Chickie especially once they realize that will make Zoodle their Brother-In-Law. If Chickie turns them down, then I assume they will just continue heading up the Zoodle fan club.

I have to say that bit about the tooth fairy living in the sewers is just a tad creepy . . . I think we'll keep our teeth around here! :)

I never knew. Now of course I know it all.
