Some answers to your questions for our family (and perhaps the only video you’ll see of me)

Before Ree took the fateful swoop off the monkey bars and got her huge neon cast, we had started answering some of your awesome questions from this post.

We tackled five questions at a time, so these are the first three sets of video answers.

Video #1, Ro and Ree answer: What's your fave time of day, any advice for a 3-year-old having nightmares, what's your fave color, what's your fave animal, what do you want to be when you grow up?

Video #2, Ro and Ree answer: What do you like best about having a twin, what's your fave thing about Tahoe, are you excited to be starting Kindergarten this month, what are your fave places to be/visit, what do you like best about your sister?

Video #3, I answer: Are you a member of a twins group, do Ro and Ree know they are adopted, what one thing do you miss about your life before having the twinadoes, how do you handle TubaDad’s frequent travel, how do you keep your photos all organized, backed up, etc.?

Oh man, I’m really self conscious seeing myself on video. I might just have to type answers from now on, it’s way less intimidating. :-) I offered the girls a jelly bean for each question they answered, by the way, which they thought was crazy fun, so they’ve been bugging the heck out of me to be able to answer more and more questions. Anyhow, more answers coming soon, including some from TubaDad (who I’m guessing is going to require more than a jelly bean to get behind the vid cam, heh). Sorry we’re kind of delayed on this, I guess the broken arm and start of school kind of threw us for a loop.

IMG_2999 PS: The McDonald’s family fun pack giveaway ends in five days, so there’s still time to enter AND it’s for a great cause this time. Not very many entries yet, so the chances of winning are really high. Also, that reminds me: we walked into a McD’s today and that oatmeal that we taste-tested (and I loved) is now available. Cool beans!

    Owning a shop seems to be a favourite with this age group. My DD is going to own a lollie and Chinese baby shop apparently!

    Well, I thought you were just terrific on camera and hope you do not shy away from sharing yourself with your adoring public! The girls were also great!

    "Because you can change your mind?" That is the funniest thing I have ever heard! Great videos!

    The videos are fabulous! Thanks for being candid about the 1 to 2 year old stage. My boys are a year apart, ages 10 month & 22 month right now and I'm feeling quite "haggish." To hear you say it's so great in a year or so gives me great hope! Thanks for living your life out loud.

  8. Now that's a great idea - video taping questions and answers. You did great! Thanks for sharing.

    You pronounced my name right! Can't tell you how often I get Renee.

    They did a great job answering the questions. So did you:-)

    haha loved the end of that first video (haven't watched the others yet). I totally agree with Ree only wanting to be a mommy and not wanting to work- I would love to not have to go to work either! ;) hehe... Unfortunately I have about 40 years left!

  11. Fantastic!!! I only had time to watch the first video - but I'll be back... (I really want to see your video ;)

    I love how Ro wants to be a Mummy! ;) (oh! and her favourite time is "meantime"... what a classic!!! she's a genius!! ;)

    Coming back later!

  12. Loved them all! You were great on camera btw! Can't wait to hear all about the girls adventures in kindergarten. I have been teaching kinder for several years and got moved up to second grade this year. I'm going to miss those little sweeties. :)

  13. i'm with Ree... i just wanna go NOWHERE when it comes to work!! thanks for the huge smiles with these clips!

  14. Wow, just love their on camera presence! So verbal, and Ree saying she didn't want to work, and wanted to be a mommy and adopt...
    classic and so touching!
    All the time you spend with them really shows!
