Getting to Know You

I promised Impulsive Addict that I'd do her new Wednesday thingy, but yesterday I had a total blonde moment and posted something else before I even remember. So I begged her to forgive me and promised her a couple gallons of th' Cap'n (not of the Crunch variety) if she'd say it's okay for me to post the Wednesday thing on Thursday. (Ok, so I didn't really promise a gallon of Captain, but it was going to be my ace that I was going to pull if she was going to try to get all nasty and tell me "NO--only on Wednesdays!" Betcha she's wishing she'd have held out a little longer. Hee hee! here's my first We Want to Know You Wednesday, sponsored by Impulsive and her buds Mamarazzi, Janette, and Seriously Shawn. So even though we're a day late to the party, go on over and check out the others who played along!

What they are wanting to know about this week is Friendship. They give you 5 questions and you answer them. Here's the 'Friendship Five.' But let me tell you...I mixed it up a bit. Instead of me answering the questions. I asked my 7 year old daughter. I wanted to see what was important to 7 year olds when it came to friendship. Here it is:
1. Do you make friends easily? (remember these are Katie's answers), "no, it's kind of hard, especially when I go somewhere I don't know people. I get kind of shy. But usually people come talk to me."

2. What 3 qualities are a MUST in a friend? "They have to be nice and friendly and fun."

3. What makes YOU a good friend? "Because a good friend makes good choices and I make good choices. Because I stick together with my friends."

4. Have you ever met a bloggy friend in real life? I'll go ahead and answer for her, she has not. She does not blog and has no 7 year old bloggy friends. I'll answer for myself, that I've met Dawn IRL and she's super great, though our time together at the par-tay we were at was cut short due to an accident her daughter had. And I've met Yogi. He always buys Girl Scout cookies from Katie and he's super funny and has a dry wit IRL. He's also a fellow runner, though I'm pretty sure (100% positive) he would kick my rear in a race. I've met Baloney, too, but I knew her before I entered the blogosphere, so that's kinda cheating. I would like to meet Impulsive, though.

5. Who is your best friend? Tell us about them. (back to Katie talk here). "I have a couple, but my very best friend is Maddie. We always play together on the playground and we make cards for each other. We like to play Barbie's and she showed me her special rocks. We take tap together."

Here's Katie with her BFF.
Aren't they just full of 7 year old cuteness! Gosh--I can hardly stand how precious and innocent they are.

That IA, she's easily bought isn't she?

How cool! I love that you had your daughter answer, I bet we could all learn a few things from our children if we only took the time, like you did, to ask and then listen!

Thanks Katie for playing along, you're simply adorable!

Baloney said...

How cute is that? I loved that you had Katie answer. Now I'm wondering what my guys would say.
I'm offended. Why isn't IA asking ME? I know I've been a little out of it lately but GEESH! :)

Well, sounds like I need to kiss up to Jonni now.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE you for linking up and now I feel all famous and stuff because you talked about me and said you wanted to meet me. I would LOVE to meet you too! Maybe the next RHOK Out? That Yogi is a mess isn't he!?

What a creative idea to have your daughter answer the questions! That pic of her and her BESTIE is adorable!

Thanks for playing with me even though you were a day late!

Natalia said...

Awww she's a cutie! 7 year olds sure do know what life is all about.

Mamarazzi said...

love that your daughter answered the friendship questions. i love a child's perspective on friendship.

thanks so much for linking up with us! even late, you are a good friend for doing it for Impulsive.

don't you love that her forgiveness can be purchased with booze? yep, she is easy that girl.

Great idea to have Katie answer most of the questions. She is a real cute little girl and just so everybody knows, her Girl Scout cookies are the best in town. I bet most people think they are all the same, they are not.

I think you live down the street or maybe a street over from another blog friend of mine, Bill of Tulsa Gentleman. It must be something about the neighborhood that attracts nice people because he is a super person also.
