3 Peas in a Pod Has 500 Posts!

I am entering to win this lovely basket of goodies from 3 Peas in a Pod. They are celebrating their 500th post, so I'm entering for a chance to win. Now I have to answer the following questions:
1. Typically, what time do you wake up?
Whenever our 19 month old wakes us up...anywhere between 6am and 7:30am.

2. On a good night, what time are your kids in bed?
The 19 month old usually goes down at 9pm (any earlier, and he would be waking us up at 5am or earlier!) and the 14 year old usually goes to bed at 10pm (he's homeschooled).

3. How long have you been a mommy?
If you're including womb time, I've been a mommy for just over 15 years.

4. How old were you when you became a mom?
23 at his birth.

5. What is your favorite kids T.V. show?
Between the Lions

6. What is your least favorite kids T.V. show?

7. What is your favorite chore?
You mean we're supposed to have a favorite chore? Isn't that an oxymoron? Ok, I guess mine would be doing laundry.

8. What is your favorite meal to cook?
Enchiladas and Spanish rice.

9. What is your least favorite meal to cook?
Anything that takes too long and has too many ingredients.

10. What is your kids favorite meal?
The 19 month old is still eating baby food (tactile issues), and the 14 year old's favorite is fajitas (Mom-made fajitas!).
Really though, my 14 year old pretty much says that every meal I fix is his favorite!

11. What is your favorite thing your husband does with your kids?
Loves them, teaches them about being real men, gets down on the floor and plays with them.

12. What are 5 things that make you smile when you are being a mom?
When my 14 year old does something well,
when my 14 year old does a chore without being asked,
when my 19 month old comes running to me at full tilt,
when my 19 month old giggles,
and when they both give me hugs.
13. If you could take your kids anywhere, where would it be?
On a roadtrip across the USA, visiting historical sites, state parks, small towns, and more. I would love to visit some of the restaurants we see on the Food Network!
14. When was the last time you went out without your kids?
May 30th..for a girl's night out.

15. What is your favorite pastime/activity to do with your kids?
Reading to them...going fishing with my 14 year old.

16. Name one thing you said you would never say as a mother.
I can't think of anything.

17. Name something you do, that your mom did.

18. What is your favorite quality your mom has?

19. What is your favorite kids book?
Any Laura Ingalls Wilder book (I know...they're older kids' books, but my mom said that I was reading them when I was 5...seriously!)

20. What is your favorite advice for new moms?
Take a nap when your baby is napping!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

21. What is your most heartbreaking moment as a mom?
When my 14 year old was born, he was only born with 1/2 a heart. He has had two major heart surgeries, and 5 strokes because of it. (Before he was 3). That was pretty heartbreaking. Other than that, it's when my kids disobey willfully, or are disrespectful.

22. What is your most joyful moment being a mom?
Seeing my boys accomplish new things, or seeing them asleep. It's a tossup.

23. When was the last time you told one of your kids you loved them?
I told the 14 year old last night at bedtime, and told the 19 month old this morning while he was taking his bottle.

24. When was the last time you were told?
Last night. :-)
So there you have it!
