So mom usually asks us what our favorites are, but this year I decided that I wanted to do it for her. In other words I am taking over mom’s blog for today. And in doing this blog it will hopefully encourage her to do one for us. – Ivy
Mom what’s your favorite…

Aunt – My favorite aunt? Are you guys trying to start a family war? (I think dad is).
Animal – My favorite use to be a frog and the theme for today’s for Cool Beans Club is frog drawings so we should do that. But now, it might be a dog… or a goat.
Farm animal that we have – It might be the geese but also the silky chickens. But if you made me choose it would be the geese.
Thing to do inside – I don’t know what to say. I like to… wash the dishes? Nope. Play the piano? Hardly do that… I don’t know.

Time of day – Time of day? umm 10pm (both start laughing)
Time of year – winter, fall, winter, fall, winter.
Song – I don’t like music (I don’t like that answer. Mostly because I have my headphones on 24/7). Mom: Ok what about I don’t like music that much, I do like the “Whiskey for my Men, beer for my horses” song and “Na ladeira”
Thing to do while we are at school – Enjoy the quiet.
Friend – Sarah (not surprising) for how many years? How old was I in 2nd grade? 8 years old, so we have been friends for 32 years.
Movie – I don’t really watch movies but, probably “French Kiss” because I don’t watch movies.
Thing to do with me – Wash Dishes… JK I like to work out together and I like to yell at you to take your headphones off when I’m trying to talk to you.
Thing to do with Clara – Take care of her pigeons.
Thing to do with Jane – … What do I do with Jane? Wait, do I do things with you guys? Now I feel like a bad mother. Oh wait, she does do the chores with me and that’s fun.
Thing to do with Dad – I don’t know, hang out with him all day, every day FOREVER because that means I can do everything with him.
Thing to do in the car – Currently, since my concussion? Sleep!
Thing to do in your free time – I don’t have free time… eat chocolate in quiet.

Thing about having kids – um…. Dad “when they are quiet”. Mom “When they do nice things for you like birthday surprises for you and write blogs.”
Flower – Daffodils or forget-me-nots.
Chicken – I don’t have a favorite by name but kind… wyandottes or silkies or any new variety (Dad calls from the other room “So the next chicken”)… Yes
Anything else – Ted the vacuum cleaner (we named out new Robo vacuum cleaner Ted if anyone is confused).
Happy Birthday Mom.
