Classy and Witty Q&A's...

Last week I started some well needed Spring cleaning. My house is still a HUGE mess, but my blog is more organized.

You might have realized I got my own URL. You might have read my "About me" and witnessed my remarkable photoshop abilities. You might have clicked on my "Neighbors" and glanced at the blogroll. You might have been curious to see what "Bling" was. That "Bling" my friends makes me blush everytime.

The last thing on my blog's Spring cleaning to-do list, is to include a "Q&A" section. I really disliked my 100 things post and am envisioning the "Q&A" section to be full of classy and witty questions from my classy and witty readers. I envision a place where new readers can come to learn more about me and find you.

Please leave me ONE QUESTION and your url address, so I can minimize my clicking and pasting. Keep it CLASSY and WITTY... things you really would like to know about me, about blogging, about parenting, or whatever else. Please remember that my entire family and handful of friends read this blog. Mwah from a PG-13 kinda of gal.

I will try to answer as many as possible. MR. OHmommy will pick his most favorite. That lucky blogger will be rewarded with a basket full of adult and kid's toothbrushes and toothpaste. What do you expect from a dentist?


In the meantime, I will be crying all weekend long as we celebrate Fifi's 1st birthday. I might even make Monday a holiday and not blog. Imagine that? I leave you with Fifi's 1st portrait, that is waiting to be hung next to her siblings.Summary: Leave me ONE classy and witty question (include your url) for my new Q&A section and you might win TOOTHBRUSHES and TOOTHPASTE for your family!!!

How do you keep your skin looking flawless? (I love your skin.. that sounds creepy right...LOL)

How in the world do you really make it through your days in stilettos? I've read carefully -- in your life, there's dog poop on the floor, kids to spoon feed, and many different activities to carpool towards. I'd be in some comfy Born flats all day long. Yet you keep referring to--and even sometimes posting pictures of--stilettos on your feet. How in the world do you manage it?!?

I'm seriously impressed.

That picture is adorable. I love Fifi's little pigtails!!

Wendi said...

My question is or was...

"Do you really do EVERYTHING in stilletos?"

explain. elaborate. discuss.

In 20 years, when your children are grown, what do you hope your blog will tell them about you? About your marriage? About your life with them?

(Aside from the fact that you had coffee with me, of course.)

If you could live anywhere, where would it be?

How's that for a totally generic question? I think I left my brain cells on my pillow this morning. No, really.

If you were going to write a novel about your life, what would the title be? What would be the central storyline?

How did Mr OHMommy and Mrs OHMommy come to meet?

Mommy is Moody

I need questions for my Q & A, still, too!!!

The Egel Nest said...

Will Mr. Ohmommy's basket include nitrous oxide? Just curious...

My question is...

If they can make children's toothpaste that effectively brushes teeth, and tastes good, why can't they make that for adults? I vote for Cheeze-it flavor :)

OHmommy said...

Hello OHMommy !
I thought your idea is great and I look forward reading all your answers !!
My question is : knowing your experience of differents cities and countries in the world, which city or country would you choose to live with your family if you could move your whole house and life in a second (and ignoring the problem of language) and why this choice ?
Have Fun !!
Marie

girlymom said...

OhMommy~
The previous blogger kinda asked my question, so I will tweek it...

What are the 3 languages that you speak? Why? and are you teaching them to your children? What is your biggest challenge with speaking 3 languages? How have you benefitted from this?

Ok, othe people asked more than one, I couldn't fit all that into one question...

Question for MrOhMommy...
My Kindergartener is loosing her front tooth, what is the best way to encourage brushing when the tooth is sore? She is missing the teeth around it because she is scared she will hurt it. She normally does a pretty good job, but I can't wait for this tooth to pop out and get it over with already. She doesn't want me anywhere near her mouth- UGh. This tooth is taking forever, her other ones were much faster.

Just curious if you had any secret dentist pointers.

Happy Birthday Fifi! What a cutey-patootie!

Okay, a question for you!

With all you do for your family, what is your favorite thing to do for yourself?

Stephanie said...

Love the hair in the portrait! So cute. Did you take it?

My question (from one ameteur photographer to a professional on):

How did you come to be a photographer? Do you own your own studio?

Happy birthday to Fifi... I know it's bittersweet, but ONE YEAR, that's a huge thing!!! Wipe your pretty tears, ohmommy!
So, a question. I hope you haven't already answered this in some form or another, if you have, just ignore it.
Did you ever think you might have as many kids as you have; and would you want more? We're happy with two, but I must admit after I had my baby, and still even now occasionally, I feel twinges, and I think it will take a while for those twingest to fade.

Jenni said...

OHMommy,

When you lose your temper, in which language do you scream?

My mom is Polish, and boy she could let loose a string of consonants!

Don Mills Diva said...

At what moment did you know Mr. OHmommy was the one?

Lisa said...

What a neat idea!!!
I loved your little girl's one year pic--the pig tails are darling.
OK my question....when piecing together the perfect outfit, which is more important, the shoes or the purse?

Grace said...

What a sweet and beautifull, adorable Fifi.
I love the picture.

Robin said...

Does the dentist scene in Little Shop of Horrors make you and Mr. Ohmommy cringe or laugh maniacally? Oh, and how long were you working as a dentist before you got tired of this question?

You write often about the vast differences in your children's personalities. What do you think has been the most important parenting lesson you have learned from each of them?

PS Happy Birthday Fifi!!

Janice said...

Happy Birthday to Fifi-

I love the picture of her, really it should be entered into a contest or something,

I am to sick to think of a good question, so this is what you get...

Any special tips for getting rid of the Flu? J/K

Around The Funny Farm said...

Happy Birthday Fifi.. your beautiful!

Toothbrushes and toothpaste...oh my.. irresistible! ;-) lol

Here is my question:

Tell us who you think would be a better president- YOU or your HUBBY? Why?

Kelly said...

That picture is too cute for words!!!

I've been dealing with a sick kid all week and do not have enough brain cells awake to come up with something classy and witty. If I do, I'll be back!

Smart A$$ Mom said...

One Witty:
What is your natural hair color? Do you color your hair, is it highlighted?


One Classy:
What is your fav brand of stilettos? I would live for nothing more than a pair of classy Louboutins, but until I can swing negating a months mortgage for a pair, I love BCBG's.

Amy said...

love fifi's portrait. happy birthday to her!

now for the question.... what attracted you to your husband?

krissy said...

What is your best memory with your husband??

Pretty lame, I know...however, my brain is on freeze time today! I take what I can get from it!

What a sweet picture...the pigtails are so adorable! I love it!

Lisa said...

Her picture is darling. I would tell you to go & frame it, but it looks like you already did!

Alright - I'm having a hard time deciding between two questions, so you pick which one you'd like to answer....

a) What is the most extravagant thing you've ever purchased for yourself? Your Hubby? You kids?

b) What classy woman inspires you most?

Lisa said...

Oh yeah -

happy 1st bday fifi - your present will arrive 2 weeks late :-( via american airlines!!

Miss said...

My question is how do you get your hair so shiney! I want!

Also, what did you want to be when you grew up? How close did you get to those dreams?

Cecily R said...

I've been staring at your comments for ten minutes and not one bit of wit or snark or class has entered my head. Sigh. What do you do?

I'll try again later, after the afternoon fog has cleared a bit...

Flea said...

What an ADORABLE picture of Fifi!

Okay, my favorite og my MIL's Polish recipes is her version of Bigos. What are your favorite secret Polish recipes and can you share them? :D

Kellan said...

I hope Fifi has a wonderful Birthday - she is such a little sweetie - have fun!

I'll have to think about a question and come back.

Mom Of 3 said...

I cant think of a question right now, but I wanted to say the picture is adorable!

Maria said...

First of all, that's a really cute picture! Secondly, your teeth look very white. How (I'm assuming you do) do you whiten your teeth? Does your husband do it at the office? I just use Crest Whitestrips.

Tara R. said...

My question for OHMommy... are there any OHSisters or OHBrothers? Oh yeah, the photo is precious!

suchsimplepleasures said...

happy birthday,little miss fifi!!

ok...i can't think of a fabulous question...brain is hardening from headache...

xoxo...have an awesome weekend, honey!!

suchsimplepleasures said...

what is your happiest childhood memory?

momof3crazykids said...

How about a tip on taking "classy photos of kids". I seem to never get any good ones that don't look too posed.
Cute photo of Fifi!

Question #2...
Why did you think Mr. OHMommy was a foreign exchange student from Belgium instead of a Dental School boy?
Curious minds wanna know!

Lizzy in the Burbs said...

Hi!

Happy 1st Birthday to your little princess Fifi! LOVE her birthday portrait, adorable!

Okay, OhMommy, a question for you...hmmmm. You showed us a picture of yourself in a bikini from a few years ago and you had amazing abs. What do you do to keep in shape? (besides running after three kids all day!)

What's the most unexpected thing you've discovered about yourself since you became a mother?

A Mom Two Boys said...

First off- the portrait of Fifi is ADORABLE. Those pigtails kill me. I can't even imagine what it's like to have a little girl to dress up. So fun. And, you have two of them. Wow.

Great site. I don't know what you old one looked like, but this one looks nice! If I can get creative and come up with an awesome question for you I'll be back. Sadly, it probably won't happen.

Anonymous said...

Great photo of Fifi. You have beautiful children.

So my question for you is how do you keep your teeth so white? You have a beautiful smile. I want that smile!!! ha! Any recommendations from Mr OhMommy he can share? For someone who is looking into doing some cosmetic dental work, veneers or LUMINEERS???

thanks!

Amy said...

well,I'm kind of new here, so if this has been answered already then I apologize..
What is your one guilty pleasure? The thing you do just for you that doesn't involve your hubby or kids?
stilettos, really? wow I don't even own a pair...:-)

Will you share your story about leaving Poland? I think we would all love to hear it and we would be moved and inspired.

Ya... About That said...

I assume you have an accent - so what's it like?

Jessica said...

First, Happy Birthday to Fifi!!! Many tears and hugs coming your way!




Okay... hmmmm... Question time....

How did you and your husband meet and did you know that he was the one?

If you give live anywhere, where would it be and why?

If you could choose someone to be the next president, either already a candidate or not... Who would it be and why?


http://jessica-neveradullmoment.blogspot.com/

Mr Lady said...

I would like to know (Are) how you (You even) chose your names (open to the possibility) for your children?

I mean, are they family (of making) names or did you (out) always know what you'd name them, or did you find them (with me) somewhere?

Grandy said...

Great pic! Great Idea!! GREAT QUESTIONS before me!!!

Happy 1st Birthday, Fifi!! You are indeed adorable!!

I did read all the questions, I think, because I wanted to make sure mine was different.

If you could take your family anywhere in the world, to introduce them to culture and diversity while still having fun, where would it be?

Thank you!! I love your blog and your sense of style. :)

Karen said...

Do you take your kids photos? They're fab!

What a darling Fifi is - happy birthday!

Rob said...

Classy AND Witty? I might be able to muster up one or the other but I think both of them at the same time is asking for quite a lot!

Anonymous said...

Having 3 kids under the age of 5, how do you manage when you're out with them? Do you carry a double stroller for the smaller two and if so, which one do you use? I just find it a bit challenging controlling my own when I'm out and about. Thanks!

Rhea said...

I'm jealous of your Polish identity connnection. My background is such a mishmash of boring stuff...I wish I had a stronger sense of culture and identity like you do.
