My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

OK, PenofJen tagged me at her homeschool blog. So, I'm finally going to try and do this one.

ACCENT - born and bred in and around the Dallas, Texas area, you figure out if I have an accent!

I DON"T DRINK - least not very often. I'm not a teetotaler, but in my hubby's words I'm "dry as dust" in the alcohol department.

CHORE I HATE - cleaning the litter box. Ever since we started trying to get pregnant (6 years ago) my hubby has solely done this chore, for which I am eternally grateful.

PETS - 2 cats, Mr. Boots and Speedy girl

ESSENTIAL ELECTRONICS - cellphone, digital camera, I guess now I'd have to add the computer heehee.

PERFUME - none. I'm allergic to most perfumes so I don't bother trying to find one to wear. Hubby can't hardly smell anyway. :-)

GOLD or SILVER - who cares? These days I don't even put things in the holes in my ears because if I did someone would just pull on it. I also don't wear my engagement ring when they're babies as I kept scratching them with it.

INSOMNIA - periodically.

JOB TITLE - Wife, Mother, Walking Milk Factory, Jungle Gym, Playground Monitor, Photographer,.........

MOST ADMIRED TRAIT - heck if I tell me!

KIDS - 2 sons, 1 daughter

PHOBIA - heights

RELIGION - "I am a born again Christian, knowing of my destiny. I am part of the body of Christ." This is Jen's answer, I thought it was cool so I left it. I will add that I am a life-long Methodist.

SIBLINGS - 2 Half-brothers and 1 Half-sister

TIME I WAKE UP - The very last moment required to get kids going for whatever they have today...hubby usually gets breakfast started before I roll out of bed. Yup, he spoils me rotten!

UNUSUAL TALENT/SKILL - well, I have been blessed with many talents but I don't know that I'd call them unusual. hhmmmm have to think.

VEGETABLE - Well, I love okra just about any way you can make it. (except maybe raw.) I like just about any veggie but squash, zucchini or Lima beans.

WORST HABIT - now why would I go and tell you that??

X-RAYS - dental and a zillion sonograms for the babies.

MY FAVORITE MEAL - Hubby's homemade cream of mushroom soup. Anything Cajun. My Step-mom's Etouffee', Jambalaya and Gumbo top the list.

OK, Susan also did a fun meme that I thought I'd play along with.

Players, you must list one fact that is somehow relevant to your life for each letter of your middle name. If you don’t have a middle name, use the middle name you would have liked to have had. When you are tagged you need to write your own blog post containing your own middle name game facts. At the end of your blog post, you need to choose one person for each letter of your middle name to tag. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.My middle name is...........

H - Helen Louise is my aunt who died as a child. She is my namesake.

E - "Everybody loves Mom" that's what hubby tells me...everywhere I go I always have a minimum of 2 kids and 2 cats following me

L - Love "Faith, Hope, Love, abide these three, but the greatest of these is Love" 1 Corinthians 13:13

E - Endless laundry and dirty diapers

N - Never a dull moment!! This is such a fun time in my life!! It's wonderful to know that I am right where God wants me to be doing just what He wants me to do!

OK, now for the tags....uuummmm

I'm gonna retag Jen for the middle name one.

Love and hugs,

The earring thing is so true, I had the oldest tug and tear my ear and that was it, no earrings since 1990!

Cool about the litter box, I love cats, but the litter gets me@#@# crazy.

I am very pleased to read that you too know your destiny!!

And I will do the middle name tag, tomorrow on the home school blog.

Penless Thoughts said...

Love your answers Helen!!!! Especially the milk machine and jungle gym. You make me laugh.

Stephanie said...

Just to let you know--I haven't forgotten the last tag, and am almost ready to put it out.

Thank goodness I have a short middle name. 8^)

Will try to get this new tag up in a day or so.

Love the walking milk machine! Belly up to the milk bar, kiddos!

Hootin'Anni said...

Hi....I saw a comment you left on another blog and noticed you were a Texan. So, just saying Howdy to a neighbor...I'm from coastal bend area, Texas!!

Nice to meet you. The meme is good, you did a fantastic job.

ellen b said...

Well Mighty Mom Helen, I love your descriptions of who you are through your middle name..
Blessings on you and all that laundry!

MightyMom said...

Hello Hootin'anni!!
Thank you so much for stopping by here! I'll make it to your place here soon.

Maybe I should stop tagging people?? They seem to be backing up heeheehee.

Thanks Ellen! I actually love my middle name so it was a fun one for me.

PEA said...

I'm glad I have a short middle name! LOL I've never done this meme so it will be fun to give it a try...I'll do it in tomorrow's post:-) xox

Linda said...

Being that there are two there which one did I get tagged with? And please don't tell me both as I still need to do the other meme you tagged me with and haven't gotten to yet! There just aren't enough hours in the day! Of course, it would probably help if I didn't hang out at day-long concerts!

MightyMom said...

friend you may do whichever tag or none that you think would be fun to do. Feel no obligation!
Your hours are not unlike hospital hours and I did those long enough to know that it just plain stinks!
