{May 10, 2013}   Five Question Friday for May 10th,2013/Day 10 of Reading Challenge!

Welcome!

As always, you may answer these questions in your own post or in the comments section!

This 5 Question Friday was brought to you by:

On to the questions!

1. What’s the one personal hygiene thing you will not do in front of your spouse? Well, the one time I did a face mask, I scared him half to death so I think he would prefer I NOT do that around him! I’m pretty comfortable around my husband so I don’t know if there’s anything I won’t do…I prefer to tweeze facial hairs(when I need to) when I’m by myself only cause if I get startled, it can hurt worse and I prefer to shave alone for the same, but I don’t care if he happens to be around me when I do

2. What’s your favorite thing about a newborn? Newborn baby smell, the sound of their giggles and their little toes and fingers…how incredibly cute and adorable they are. Can you tell I’m ready to have kids? LOL

3. When is “too young” to have a Facebook account? Unfortunately, there is a lot of inappropriate things shown on FB that even I find distasteful so the age limit they have of 13(which is NOT enforced) is too young in my opinion….If they did a FB for kids, I feel like there might be perverts lurking and pretending to be kids, though so it’s a tough thing. I think parents nowadays have to be very vigilant and aware of what their kids are doing and I almost think the parents should be the ones to decide.(Not that every parent makes the best decisions) I don’t have kids yet but I think I would consider it once they get to high school. I would have to be able to monitor their involvement to some extent, though.

4. What are your hoping for for Mother’s Day? Not a mom yet….it would be nice to get the news that I was going to be a Mom on Mother’s Day…but that’s impossible at this point…..maybe next year, eh? 🙂 I hope my Niece has her baby girl by Mother’s Day though 🙂

5. What was the best field trip you ever took in school? Definitely the 10th grade Choir Trip to DisneyWorld! We had to pay our own way, which meant saving money, but it was worth it!

Day 10-Favorite Classic Book

There’s a lot of classics that I have not read…I’m ashamed to admit it, but it’s true. I was going to say “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien until I realized “Rebecca” by Daphne Du Maurier was a classic. I don’t know what it is about the book, “Rebecca” but it’s absolutely one of my favorite books of all time and I JUST read it last year. I actually have a few more of her books…Daphne is a she, right? lol….and I really hope they are just as good. If so, the Daphne Du Maurier will be one of my favorite authors as well!

I want to add that I didn’t pick any of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy because while I admit that J.R.R. Tolkien is an amazing writer, the LOTR trilogy is full of descriptive writing to the extreme. Some people LOVE descriptive writing where the characters and scenery are endlessly described down to the very last detail and some people are like me. I like just enough description as needed to tell the story and then my imagination takes over. In the case of describing things, I like the “less is more” theory. I love reading dialogues and I love reading into the story lines and the plots and I prefer my descriptions short, simple and to the point. That’s just my taste but I respect others as well. 🙂 The world would be a sad place if we all liked the same things!

I’ve definitely seen kids on FB younger than 13. . . . I’m completely uncomfortable with the topic. Abby’s already asking about when she can get on FB. I’m not big on strict age guidelines because I think every kid is different. I told her 13 is the minimum and then it depends on her, but that *all* of her online activities will be monitored. She uses my old computer now and I have it set so she can only go to certain websites. She goes on Club Penguin and they have a socialization aspect which kind of freaked me out at first, but at least they have an option where the conversations are limited to what’s available in a drop-down menu. So she gets a list of things she can say to other kids and other kids can only uses those phrases when talking to her. . . . . I much less worried about the content on FB than I am the people she could be interacting with :/

Ugh! I think our parents had it easier! 😛



I’ve seen kids younger too because there’s no real way for them to make sure. They ask the age but it’s not hard to lie. Like you did with your daughter, parents are responsible for trying to monitor it the best they can. I know parents who have young kids with FB accounts and they know it and they don’t monitor it at all…and I think that’s just crazy! And like you said, it’s not just the stuff they might see or read, but WHO they might meet on there. I remember during my wild time(I guess you could call it), how I would meet people and not tell anyone else about it…and I was an adult at that time making stupid decisions so I KNOW teens and young kids are susceptible to that. There are some messed up people in this world that will take advantage of young people and lure them into situations where they will get hurt or even killed which is why parents have to work so much harder to monitor their kids(even if it means being the bad guy)! I don’t even have kids yet but I do NOT look forward to when I do and they get old enough for when to deal with this….

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
