6 words

Well, it was bound to happen. I've been tagged by Angela for the "describe yourself in 6 words" meme. Here goes:


Thespian mommy, wife: Child of God


I had a button in high school (I had a jean jacket covered with them) which I've kept, and think it also defines me pretty well, in 6 words it just so happens:
"I'm subject to bursts of enthusiasm"

******
6 words are more than the May Queen had in response to the fact that she'll be at a new school next year. When we told her at dinner she basically said, "Okay!" She later asked about who her teacher would be and where she would be going for second grade, but basically seems unconcerned. We'll see how things go tomorrow at school. Her two best friends in kindergarten are both moving on as well, so I don't think there will be a big missing friends issue.

I liked both of these. Subject to bursts of enthusiasm is very attractive! :) What a lucky girl the May Queen is to have a mother like you!

Ha! They are both good descriptions, and I can personally vouch for the truth of the second one! :)

That six word thing is harder than it looks. Yours is quite descriptive. i wonder if we did them every year, would trhey keep changing?

Angela said...

Love both of your 6 words!! Glad your daughter is on board for the new school...hope it goes wonderfully!

6 words. Too tall an order for my rambling mind but yours seems very succinct. And it's funny how children react so differently than we anticipate in some situations,eh? Our kids are more resilient than we are sometimes!

Those are VERY good six word autobiographies!

Christine said...

and i just read your post below this--i can't believe that one school had no art or music! crazy. sounds like you've found a good place though.

I've so loved reading these "Six Words". They can be surprisingly insightful!

Congrats on finding THE school!

That MQ is so well adjusted. What a brave girl. I suppose it does help that her best friends will both be moving on as well. I'm sure MQ will do wonderfully!

Love the six word description. Perfect!

That is a great description - I have been tagged for this a few times but it just seems sooo hard - I don't know how everyone comes up with such great ones...

Those 6 words WERE insightful. I've been tagged for that one 5 times and still struggle with it.

Glad MQ is on board, that's half the battle!

I had that same button! Also, I'm so glad that MQ is fine about the new school. It may well be that other kids in class are talking about switching schools after K - so many kids do.

First of all, great job on your six words.

And second... what a wonderful Mother you are to have raised such a confident young lady who can handle whatever life throws at her.

Excellent!

First - congrats on the school search. I know how stressful that can be! "Okay!" is a great response to a "stressful" situation.

Love your six words.

In 6? That is a tough one.
