My Real Life

Five Question Friday

Filed under: Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:45 am

1. Who wakes up in the morning with the kids, you or hubby?

I do.

I seem to be the default person for the kids to come to when they need something in the morning, and even if I wasn’t, I hear everything.

The second someone is up, I’m up.

Real Man will try to let me sleep, every now and then, on the weekend, but the problem is, I’ve already woken up and heard the monkeys and I can’t fall back to sleep.

So, it’s me.

2. Do you watch the World Series even if your team isn’t in it?

Don’t have a team.

Hate baseball.

No World Series for me.

3. What is the best compliment you have received?

That my  children were kind.

It’s really all I want for them…to be kind people.

So, whenever someone tells me that they have been kind to others, it makes me beam inside.

4. Do/did you dress up to take your kids trick or treating?


I usually take Halloween as a personal day so I can go to all of my kids Halloween parades, and since I’m not at school, I don’t dress up.

To dress up to stand in the street while my kids go up to doors and ring doorbells seems silly to me, so, no, I don’t.

Before kids, however, I used to dress up for school every year.

5. Do you have a favorite bible verse? What is it and why?

I’m not much of a biblical scholar.

I’ve already shared that one bible verse that I had memorized when I was a little girl (Luke something), but as for a favorite?

Probably not.

I am a fan of the Christmas story, and I think it’s because my Dad used to do the Christmas story in candles at church.

The lights would be dim and he’d light a candle each time he mentioned a new person in the story, and then extinguish the candle as each person left the manger, and eventually, it was just the Christ candle and it was really beautiful.

Whether or not you believed it, it was beautiful.

So, I guess that story.


  1. I used to dress up at work for Hallowe’en. I still dress up to hand out the candy.

    • I always thought it was cool, when I was a kid, when the adults who answered the doors were wearing costumes. 🙂
