A Disgraceful Interview

I decided to play along in the creative meme being passed around by Miss Grace. She has sent me a few provocative and soul searching questions to answer in a mini interview. I know you are all dying to hear the answers, so……ready…..go!

1. What do you miss the most about your pre-baby life?

This is hard to say. It has changed from the day Rocket was born to now. At first I really really missed and had a hard time of letting go of the idea of “Jeremy and Me.” It was no longer the two of us. And although we had had over a decade of time to spend as just us, I wondered if that had been enough. If we had rushed into this too soon. But as time as passed, I realize that I COULDN’T IMAGINE life with out our little boy. I think he has brought us even closer. I love seeing Jeremy interact with him. And I love it when he walks into the door, after coming home from work, and says, “Hello, my little family!” So, I guess at this point all I really miss is the ability to sleep for 8 hours in a row. Fortunately, that won’t be gone forever.

2. What changed once you became a mother that you were totally unprepared for/unwarned?

My ability to do good hair (*spoken with a southern accent ala Daryl Hannah in Steel Magnolias*). Seriously though, my hair sucks right now.

3. Pick a single materialistic and unnecessary object that you wish you owned at THIS second.

A video camera.

4. Would you rather have a shopping mall or a freeway interchange named after you? Why?

Hmmm that is a tough one. I would have to say shopping mall, because they, occassionally, get jingles written about them. I would like my own catchy little tune. No one ever writes songs about freeway interchanges. Well I guess there is that shitty “Life is a Highway” song, but that’s not the same thing.

5. Guitar Hero is banned from the world (Rock Band too). How do you spend your evenings?

So I realize from my blog that it seems like I spend a ridiculous amount of time playing Guitar Hero, but I really don’t. Ok maybe for the first few days that I have it. But by then I have beaten the game. And while it still is fun, it’s not the same challenge as it was before, so I don’t play it as often.

That being said, I would do what I usually do. Read one of the many books I am reading at the time, play the piano, watch a movie with Jer, or do something artsy fartsy.

Feeling narcissistic, too? Post a comment here saying so. I’ll send you some questions. Answer them on your blog, and pass it on.

  1. I wouldn’t be so sure about ever getting a good night’s sleep again. You get all trained to hear the noises in the night. Even if Gabriel sleeps soundly all night, I’m up a couple times checking on him or listening or just going pee.

    I’m also crazy, so there’s that.

  2. Ok I am game sign me up for the narcissistic questions.

  3. If Guitar Hero was banned from the world, I’m pretty sure I’d lock myself in my bedroom and cry for a week.

  4. ooh fun, count me in! I love your Blog sus. I read it EVERY day when my kiddos allow it. You are a riot!

  5. Sure, I love attention. Send those questions right on over.

  6. Great answers, girl. I’ll save you from coming up with any for me, since I got hit by Missy Grace and Badass yesterday with some tough ones.

    I’m avoiding answering them until tomorrow…

  7. Okay first I would say that a video camera is absolutely not an unnecesarry thing when you are a parent. I LOVE and cherish the videos I have of Dante & Noah. lol
    And second, I think I should jump on this interview train: I still have that Whitney Houston question you were unable to comment to my blog, but I’ll take a few more for more content. 🙂

  8. We got a video camera when lil moonspun was a year old. Invest in one. YOu won’t regret it. And you don’t have to video everything. But trust me later, you’ll love to look back and see rocket on video.
