"Her bed," talk about my kind of kid!!! I loved that answer, although they were all good.

I was also amused by how much my children attributed cleanliness to me...because we would starve before I could make a living cleaning houses.

So clean freak!
Monica, Thanks for checking my blog and for the support for me and my Wild Man. Loved the answers and I started to the the patten with "V". Is he your Wild Man?

I may ask my gang what they think of me. Fearful of what I may get.
