I've Been Tagged!

I've been tagged in this 8 question game by Lauren at Three Crazy Munchkins. So here we go.....

1.) How old were you when you had your first kid? What were the positives/negatives to having kids at that age?

I was 19 when I had my first child, I was not ready, and very scared. I don't believe this is a good age to start a family unless you have found that someone who will be a life partner. I wouldn't change it for the world though, because I love my son and wouldn't trade him for anything!!! A positive thing is I will be young enough to enjoy my grandchildren!!!

2.) What is a fun craft you like to do with your kids?

So far I think the favorite is making peanutbutter playdough!! They love making different thing and then being able to eat them!
3.) What is your favorite recipe to make for dinner?

At our house, we try to recreate our favorite dishes from different restaurants. Our ultimate fav. is Chinese, so when we can't afford to go out, but are craving Chinese, I cook sesame chicken, general Tao chicken, and white rice.

4.) What do you do to relax/relieve stress?

My favorite stress reliever is a hot bath and a good book behind a LOCKED door.
5.) What's your favorite part about parenting?
Seeing my children smile and having fun is absolutely the best part of parenting! That and seeing them accomplish something they have been working so hard at!

6.) What's the hardest part about parenting?

Time management!!! Having four kids and all going in different directions gets really crazy. That and seeing my kids sick, or hurt (physically or emotionally!)
7.) What's your favorite room in your house? Why?
Probably be the living room. That is where we all gather and chill as a family.
8.) What is one of your favorite memories you have with your hubby?
That would have to be when we first started dating. We use to go out to our local national park at dark and hold hands and walk around the entire lake just talking.

Here are my questions:
1. What expectations did you give up on with your consecutive children? (second, third, ext.)

2. What is the bedtime routine like in your house?

3. What are your best cleaning cheating tips?

4. What is your funniest new mom story?

5. What do you and your other half do to keep the relationship going?

6. What is your best dinner shortcut?

7. What do you do when the kids are driving you crazy?

8. What is you favorite fall activity to with the kids?
