5-Question Friday!


[Well, durn it, I didn't think there were going to be 5QF's today so that's why I posted about parental diplomacy below!  It's a pretty funny post if I do say so make sure you scroll down and read that one too!:-)]

Here goes;
1. Tube socks, calf socks, crew, ankle, none? (From@ThisDaddys_Blog)
Um.  Tube socks, really that's a choice these days?  I don't think I have ever worn a pair of tube socks, to be honest.  I was born in the early 70s so I think that particular "fashion trend" had, sadly, died off by the time I would have been old enough to rock the tube socks.  Anyway...It's crew socks during the cold months and ankle socks for the warm months.  I can't wear the flip-flops anymore because, sigh, I have very flat feet and if I wear those then I'm pretty much in serious pain by the end of the day!

2. Was your childs (children's) name a mutual decision or was it a debate? If you don't have children, do you plan on giving your spouse a say, or do you have a name you MUST have, regardless if your other half likes it or not?! (From @momtodh)
Well.  If you talk to the Hubster, he will say that Elder Daughter's name was his idea.  I however, clearly remember where we were (in a friend's car, driving back from dinner, on an evening early in the year we got pregnant w/her) when the topic of future children's names came up and I told the friend that we thought this one particular name would be what we would use for a daughter.  Clearly remember this scenario.  Hubster does not.  Hmph.  As for Younger Daughter, eesh, that for some reason was much harder.  It took us several months to decide on her name.  We went through books, I made a few lists, we talked about it...then one day he walked into the living room and threw out a suggestion....and that was it.  After S was born, and we started down the PWS road, I remember thinking that it was quite fitting that her name means "wisdom", as we definitely need that and are developing it at a pretty fast clip, living with PWS!  [If we had ever had a boy, I really like the name Daniel.]

3. What is your favorite type of weather? (From@TheSpunkyDiva)
I love it when it is sunny, but just cool enough to put on a comfy sweatshirt.  I'm not one for really hot days, but at the same time while I do love to snuggle in a bunch of warm blankets and read a good book, usually by March I am really, really tired of the cold.

4. If left to your own devices, what time would you wake up every day? (From Sandy at "Pardon My Dust")
Oh, I would get up at 7 a.m. every day, are you kidding me?
NOT.  I am so not a morning person.  If I didn't have to get up early I'd probably sleep til about 10 a.m. every day.

5. Have you bought your cemetery plots yet? (From Pam at "Troop Petrie")
Um, no.  This is one of the "I'm a responsible adult, who also has children, so I really should grow up and take care of this detail" things which I/we, erm, just haven't gotten to.  Along with the whole make-a-will, choose-a-guardian, set-up-a-special-needs-trust, stuff that keeps me up at 3 a.m. worrying.  Plus I am not sure on the cremation vs. burial thing.  Basically the whole topic gives me the heebs.

Thanks for reading!

I don't know how you parents actually come to an agreement on a child's name I alone had to name a kitten this week and had a terrible time LOL! I would hate to have to agree with someone else on the matter! For someone who had to carry that name through elementary school, Jr high and life in general! Tough job if you ask me! I have flat feet too and I have found that I can wear raised flip flops for a little while without extreme pain but not for long! I am pretty much stuck in sneakers all the time! I wish I could be barefoot constantly that would be preferable!
