Five Question Friday 11/12/10

It is time for Five Question Friday.  A fun little blog hop over at Mama M.'s blog.

1. What is the most physically painful thing that has ever happened to you?

Um... I would have to say childbirth.  It hurts like crazy.  I had an epidural with my daughter and that hurt.  It was an awful experience just getting the needle in my back.  It was one of the worst experiences ever.  Even with the epidural it hurt to give birth.  I was so proud of myself for giving birth, I thought I was amazing for getting through it.  I quickly learned when I had my son, (no epidural) that the epidural helps A LOT.  Wow, natural child birth HURTS.  I guess I sort of should have expected it since GOD said it would hurt in the Bible and he is never wrong.

2.  How much sleep do you get at night?

I try to get 8 hours, but don't always succeed.  I think my body works best on about 9 hours.  I love sleep the hard thing is I stay up too late after the kids go to bed.  There is just something so nice about the quiet once they are sleeping.

3. How long did you believe in Santa Claus?  How did you find out that he does not exist?

I was 5 and in kindergarten.  A couple of friends told me.  Their family didn't do Santa so they informed me he was not real.  I remember my mom telling me later that she cried when I no longer believed since I was her baby and last one to still believe and she was hoping it would last longer.

4. What was the last movie you saw in a theater?

We took the kids to see Toy Story 3 a few weeks ago at the cheap theater.  It was their first movie at the theater.  It was so good.  I cried.  

5. What do you wear to bed?

I usually wear flannel pants and a t-shirt.  Socks are a must in the winter time.


  1. I love these questions! I was the same age for not believing in Santa as well :(

  2. Hi! I've just found you via 5QF, and glad I have! :) I enjoyed reading your answers and could definitely identify with them!

    I really feel for you and your mother!! Imagine finding out about Santa at FIVE!?! So unfair!! I would've wept if that had happened with my girls! Christmas is definitely more magical with young kids in the family who get excited about Santa! :)

    We took the girls to see Toy Story 3 too, and we all loved it!! It was amazing! :)

    Have a great weekend!..
