An Interview with Rugby and Riley

My friend Christy recently interviewed her kids with a form that was floating around Facebook. It sounded like fun, so I did it with Rugby and Riley over the weekend. Some of their answers are surprising, some....not so much. But, it's neat to see how their little brains think of me.

1. What is something mom always says to you?
Rugby: You get what you get and you don't throw a fit.
Riley: Not to jump off the couch or you'll get hurt (Guess what he did this weekend? With a goose egg to prove it. ugh!)

2. What makes mom happy?
Bug: Hugs and kisses.....and candy!
Riley: Listening

3. What makes mom sad?
Bug: When we are naughty
Riley: I don't know

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
Bug: Tickle us
Riley: nothing

5. What was your mom like as a child?
Rugby: A sister with a naughty brother (Sorry, Jase, don't know WHERE he'd have gotten that idea wink, wink.)

11. What is your mom really good at?

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
Rugby: She gives me lots of hugs
Riley: Cuz you give us hugs and kisses

21. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?

I think it's interesting that Rugby and Riley answered some things so close to the same even though they weren't even in the same room when I asked the questions. Also, Rugby answered like he was talking to someone else and Riley was talking to me in the way they answered the questions. I think it'd be fun to get TJ and Tucker's answers in a couple years....I may have to try to remember!


  1. This is sooo cute, I need to try with my kids!
    AND Prayers to all of your family - yikes, bad week!!!

  2. Too cute but they missed the ever popular 'what is your mom's name?' question.

  3. That was awesome! I especially love "I'm a boy and she's a girl" LOL!

  4. Love it! Make a copy for yourself to keep for years to come!
