5QF- Feb. edition!

It's February!!!

I've always wanted a February baby.  Why?

Because the birthstone (amethyst) is simply beautiful!  Purple-y beautiful.

My grandmother's birthday was this month, and after she passed, I inherited her birthstone pendant.  EVERY TIME I wear it, I get compliments.  It's beautiful. Feb. baby for me.  I get December, August and October.  Still pretty ones...but no purple.

Just thanking my goodness that I didn't have a November baby.  Oye...browney yellow???  Sorry, man.

Ok...Again, I'm pushing my luck with Baby L's morning here we go.

1. What is your favorite book to read with your kids?

There's a Sesame Street book that I always read to the boys called "The Monster at the end of this Book."  It stars Grover...and it's a cute book.  Plus, I do the voice...and the boys laugh and laugh.  C. still asks me to read it to him.  The other night, Dave read it to him while I was feeding Baby L, and after Dave got done, C. promptly came to me on the love seat and asked me to read it "the right way."  #iwin

2. After having kids, what body part has changed the most?

Ummmm...this is a family friendly

Seriously, everything changed.


3. Would you ever go back to college? What would you study?

I would indulge those thoughts!  I'd probably do something in the medical field.  Possibly with anti-ageing medicine.  Ever since I found out about my gluten issues and all the domino effects from that...I've been studying how my body works and reacts to certain things.  I'd love to be able to pass my knowledge on to people.   And help them.  My peers are more open to listening, but when I offer advice to older adults, they won't listen unless I have an MD or something after my name. 

4. How do you close a phone call? Bye, bye bye or other?

ok. bye.

5. What is the one food that will always be your "cheat food" on a diet?

There is one food....regardless of whether I'm "watching it" or not...I will always eat.  Without shame.  If it's not originally in my eating plan, I'm putting it in my eating plan.

Raspberry Meringue Cookies.

Thank goodness my mom only makes these once a year at Christmas.  Seriously, I am helpless when it comes to these. 

Perhaps they're not that bad - since they're filled with air....right???  Practically a health food.  :)

I'm laughing re: your baby birthday/birthstone comments! I have a February baby (well, not so baby - he turns 7 tomorrow), but my other two were both November babies. Needless to say, I don't think birthstone jewelry is in my future :)
