YAY! We’re back for the 3rd weekly Kids Co-Op Linky … and, like last week, I will be featuring a participating blog/blogger. This week it is fellow play therapist, mom, and blogger … Amanda from Dirt & Boogers. And how could you NOT love a blog with a name like that! It’s just so perfect for a blog about young kids … and having fun with them!
So, here’s the ABCs of Dirt & Boogers …
Bed Size: King…I have a very tall husband!
Chore that you hate: Cleaning the floors. Mopping, sweeping, vacuuming…hate it all.
Dogs: We are more of cat people. We have two named Desi and Lucy. I did grow up with dogs and can appreciate them.
Essential start to the day: Some quiet time with my coffee.
Favorite color: Depends on the day or my mood. I like warmer colors like dark red, burnt orange, and brown. Today I’m feeling teal!
Gold or silver: silver
Height: 5’3 ¾”. I always wanted to make it to 5’4” but always fell a bit short.
Instrument you play: piano
Job: I was a Play Therapist before becoming a Stay at Home Mom almost 2 years ago
Kids: J is 22 months old.
Where do you Live: My husband is active duty military so we are currently in South Carolina, but are moving to the Midwest in May. However, we are both from Dallas and home is Texas.
Favorite Movie: Bridget Jones’ Diary…takes me back to my single days. And, Love Actually…so sweet!
Nickname: I don’t go by a nickname, but I have been called Grace or Train Wreck on a few occasions.
Overnight hospital stay: Just when I had my son.
Pet Peeve: Slow drivers and when my husband doesn’t put in a new bag when he takes out the trash!
Quote: “A person’s a person, no matter how small”, and “We are made to persist, that is how we find out who we are”
Right or left handed: Righty
Siblings: 1 brother, 1 step-sister, 2 sister-in-laws, and 1 step-brother-in-law. Love all of them!
Time it takes you to get ready: 10-45 min, depending on where I’m going that day.
Underwear: Yes, every day…preferably clean.
Vegetable you hate: I actually love veggies and can’t think of any that I dislike…actually I can’t think of any FOOD I dislike.
What makes you run late: Not being able to find the right outfit.
Xrays you’ve had: Just a few chest ex-rays for congestion.
Yummy food that you make: Tex-Mex. One of the hard things about being away from Texas is finding good Mexican food. So, I make my own.
Zoo animal: Elephants!
One of my favorite recent posts from Dirt & Boogers is “Mistakes … we all make them” which discusses the SUPER important topic for moms … “There is no perfection in parenting.” I highly encourage you to check out this post … and to follow the great blog!
