Five Question Friday

1} What do you call them- flip flops, sandals, thongs, or slippers?
Flip-flops. I have six pairs of Old Navy flip-flops in my shoe collection right now.

Sandals are dressier, more substantial than flip-flops.

Slippers are also known as "house shoes".

Thongs - both the word and any object named that - just make me laugh. Because I'm nine years old inside.

2} Are you a "my kids can do no wrong" kind of mom or a "Johnny punched you? Well what did you do to him first?!" kind of mom?
Probably somewhere between these two extremes. I definitely have some "Mama Bear" tendencies but, on the other hand, I know my kids are not angels. And if we're talking about their interactions with each other, I almost always ask what they did to provoke their sister.

I'm not sure I've ever admitted this but here goes: I do not like other people - whether family or friends - correcting my kids when I'm right there, especially if it's not in a loving way with no mocking or ridicule. I (or their Daddy) will handle it and correct our children in the ways we have learned are appropriate for that particular child.

This may not be the right point of view but I figure God made me their Mama for a reason.

3} Would you confront a good friend that looked/looks down on your husband/significant other?
This has never come up. Philip is awesome and everyone loves him. I think some folks in my family love him more than they love me. {Kidding. Sort of.}

But yeah, I'm extremely protective of my family. If anyone ever said anything seriously out of line about my husband in my hearing, I would throw down. Oh, yes I would. There is no friend or family relationship more important than mine to my husband. (The best part: he would do the same for me.)

4} Biggest pet peeve?
Wow. Let me count the peeves. Actually, I have:
Here's one list of my literary pet peeves. And another list of things that make me nuts.

5} What's your favorite take out meal?
Does pizza count? If so: Papa John's pizza (I like the kind with vegetables). Consistently good, no matter where you are.

If pizza doesn't count: Orange Chicken from a local Chinese restaurant. So good.

Five Question Friday is hosted over at Kate's Life today while Mama M is on vacation.
Come share your answers!
