My Mom: An Interview with Noa

Here is my fourth and final mom interview. Noa is my first-born child and I’ve kept her around for sixteen years now.

1. What is something mom always says to do?Noa
Clean your room.

2. What makes mom happy?
Books. Well-written books.
[Oh so very, very happy.]

3. What makes mom sad?
I don’t know. You’re not sad much.
[Poorly written books?]

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
[Noa mentions several unrepeatable family in-jokes. Really. Unrepeatable in a polite blogosphere.]

5. How old is your mom?
Really? 46

6. How tall is your mom?
5 foot 7
[Finally someone got that right!]

7. What was your mom like as a child?
Kinda dumb for getting run over by a bunch of animals.
[HEY! Well ... okay, it's true. On my grandfather's farm, I was: chased by geese, thrown from horses (one horse stepped on my hand, one fall scarred my face), chased by a javelina, cornered by an angry donkey, run over by an entire herd of sheep, AND had a mother chicken dance on my head when I tried to pick up a baby chick. But at least she doesn't know about the time I fell down the mountain and sat on the cactus. And for most of these, I can blame my older sister who was on hand but mysteriously unharmed in each and every incident. I'm not saying it's her fault, but I can blame her.]

8. What is her favorite thing to do?
READ. Write. Make t-shirts.

9. What does your mom do when you’re not around?
READ. Write. Make t-shirts.

10. What is your mom’s favorite food?
Chocolate. Dark chocolate.
[And FINALLY, someone got this right!]

11. Where is your mom’s favorite place to go?
Home? Quiet places?

12. What is your mom really good at?
Everything involving creative activities.

13. What is your mom not very good at?
I don’t know … composing music?
[Actually I make up songs just fine. I just can't sit down and instantly play the tune in my head at any instrument the way she can, so I complain about it.]

14. What does your mom do for a job?
Make t-shirts.

15. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
I always assumed you were already famous on the internet. Probably for your blog and stuff.

16. What makes you proud of your mom?
That you plot with me and help me make awesome ideas and other kids’ moms don’t do that.
[She writes, and I help her with plot points every now and then.]

17. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?
One that I draw?
[That would be Noa's cartoon version of me, to the right.]

18. What do you and your mom do together?
Belt out Disney songs in the car.

19. How are you and your mom the same?
Introverted. Reading. Creative activities. Should I keep going or just say I am like your mental clone?

20. How are you and your mom different?
I look nothing like you.
[She looks nothing like me.]

21. How do you know your mom loves you?
[snickers] I know you love me because you’re awesome.
ME: Final answer? Because I’m awesome?
Because you take care of me and let me pursue my artistic endeavors.

And that is my fourth and final mom interview! Go read Mica‘s and Kyler‘s and Colter‘s.

This homeschooling mom meme idea was borrowed from Jennifer and Heather.
