Mom according to the almost 16-year old daughter

The boys' answers to these cracked me up so much, I thought I'd go ahead and ask the teenager. Her answers surprised me. Also, there is a conflict with some of the narrative. I typed what she said; I thought it made it more 'real.'


1. What is something your mom always says to you?

Me gusta (Spanish for, "I like" or " it is pleasing to me.)

2. What makes mom happy?
Skittles ( I see a pattern forming...)

3. What makes mom sad?
Being lonely or bad grades.

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
Says funny stuff, obviously. (She has inherited my wit, I do believe.)

5. What was your mom like as a child?
::whispers:: How am I supposed to know? Um, quiet.

6. How old is your mom?

7. How tall is your mom?
5'3"? 5'2"? I didn't measure, sorry. (Ok. She also inherited sarcasm. Must be on her dad's side.)

Read books. (She says with a hint of disdain.)

Sports. (Word.)

14. What is your mom's favorite food?
Skittles. (I just ate some. This may be the root of my dentistry problems.)

She is going to college. (::sniff::)

Seriously? That's 15? So nice! I hope Iain's that nice when he's 15. Doubtful, but hope springs eternal.

Wow...I don't think I would have been so nice to my mom at 15. LOL

And what is it with you, Skittles, and jellybeans anyway, woman? LMAO

I also would not have been that nice about my mom at 15. In fact, I'm not all that nice about her now. But you guys seem to have a much healthier relationship. Also, it's kind of weird to think you have a daughter that's the same age I remember you.

I loved the last one, "To the Library. Just kidding, the bookstore." That made me giggle.
