AskAwayFriday Herchel Scruggbug

Did you see that Tagline?  What a great description for most of us SAHM/WAHM Moms!  I couldn’t agree more and I am always excited to see what Herchel has to write about it all and I promise you will be too.  So, once you see my answers to what Herchel has picked my brain about this week be sure to head on over to Scruggbug Corner as see what she has to say to my interrogation interview questions.

Here We Go…

AskAway Questions Herchel

1)      Team Haywood is awe inspiring!  With such a big age gap between your oldest and youngest what has been the biggest difference in how you parent the younger ones versus how you parented the older ones at the same age?

Thank You!  I know..I was a gluten for punishment, huh?  LOL  It was definitely an adjustment because i had already been through all the different phases of my oldest son’s childhood and was getting to the point where he was pretty much self-sufficient.  I could come home and he would be making his own lunch, doing his own  homework, etc.  Going from there to life with an infant again was a bit jarring at times but the joy of having my little girl was worth it all.

As for differences in my parenting, when I had my son I was a teenager so in all honesty a lot of the true ‘parenting’ was done by my grandmother.  I was trying to juggle going to college twice a day and working in between classes.  It wasn’t easy and I sacrificed a lot of that early quality time with him.

When I had my daughter I was actually considered a high risk pregnancy from about 3 months and my Hubby and I were blessed enough for me to begin my SAHM role from that point. I was able to experience and share in so many more moments with her and be a lot more hands on and involved than I was with my oldest.

That had it’s ups and downs because she and my 2 youngest Kiddies are a bit more spoiled by me than he is but he received a lot of spoiling from my grandmother so I think it all kinda balances out 🙂

2)      What would be the best thing about having a larger family in your opinion?

Always having each other.  I grew up basically as an only child and it wasn’t always fun.  I had to play alone, eat alone, sleep alone…well you get the idea.  Me time was never an issue.  I always wished that my sisters were in the same home with me so that I could have that bond they seemed to have with each other.

When I watch my Kiddies together I see what I always wished for being nurtured between them and I love it. So I feel the best thing about having a large family is definitely having each other to be there even when you may not have anyone else.

3)      What would be the worst?

Ironically the worst thing is very much the same as the best.  It is almost hand in hand a blessing and a downfall because there are also times when I see my Kiddies wanting that alone time and being in a house with 4-6 other Kiddies at alternating times that can be close to impossible.  Still I see them work it out and in the end they always end up back with each other anyway. LOL

4)      How do you manage to have time to blog, vlog, and always quick to respond on social media?  Tell me your secret because I don’t know how I would have time to do half of what you do!

Oh trust me it ain’t (yes I meant to say that) always easy!  The main thing that helps me stay connected and on top of things is scheduling and my trusty iPhone.  I plan and schedule out almost every Blog and Vlog at least 1 week in advance 2 if I am having a really good flow of creativity.

When it comes to my Social Media interactions my iPhone is my lifesaver.  With all of the Apps available out there I am able to stay connected and informed to almost every one of my Social Media Networks as well as reply, post, support and share all from the convenience of the palm of my hand.  I wouldn’t trade my iPhone for anything (except maybe the next edition 🙂 )

5)      What do you miss most about Hawaii?

The Aloha Spirit.  The people of Hawaii are absolutely amazing and the love that they ffer to perfect strangers always put me in awe.  Hubby and I often talk about returning and living out our old age there…LOL

6)      When you are having an off day, how do you pamper yourself?

An off day?  Is there such a thing?  No but seriously my Hubby makes sure that I have a day to myself whenever I need one.  I actually had one today and wanna know what I did?  I had a Starbucks Caramel Frap, went to Kohl’s and finally went to the mall and had an ‘all by myself’ visit to Build-a-Bear where I …. Built A Bear!  It was so much fun!  I truly love Build-A-Bear and I think I have almost as much fun as my Kiddies every time we go there.  I recently built a bear in my Hubby’s image for Valentine’s and have been wanting to add one to represent myself ever since and today I did.

AskAway Herchel Build-a-Bear

 

Isn’t she pretty?  I know you saw her before I brought her home…she is fancy 😉

7)      Is there a food that you love but other people think looks or tastes disgusting?

Hmmm.  I do have a food combination that I love that my Hubby thinks is weird but I don’t know if he really would say disgusting. I absolutely love to eat fresh out the oven biscuits with a bowl of applesauce.  The weirdness comes into play (as far as he is concerned) when I dip said warm biscuit ito my applesauce and eat them.  I then clean the bowl with the biscuit.  Hey!  Don’t knock it until you try it!  It’s YumYummy!

8)      When I was still working, I used to love waking up a couple of hours before the kids.  Now I enjoy late nights.  What is your favorite time of the day?

I think early mornings when my little ones are still asleep.  I can enjoy a cup of coffee, the peace and stillness plus get some things done most times before they get up.  It’s my mini ‘me time’.

9)      I enjoy your sense of style.  Where is your favorite place to shop? (Anything new and cute you have a pic of from your favorite store?)

Thank you, I think I may just be finding it myself…LOL  I am like a mix of a tomboy and a girlie-girl.  A weird combo and most times to find things that fit my taste and style I have to go to several different stores and combine pieces.  Right now I am loving Kohl’s, American Eagle and Old Navy.  I can usually find something in each one of them all the time for almost every occasion.

I actually went to Kohl’s today to replace my old worn and beat up sneakers.  I have had them since Sophomore year of High School!  They finally gave up the fight the week while I was working out with the Hubby trying to train for The Color Run.

Ask Away Herchel Ripped Sneakers

I was a bit excited though because I really wanted a different pair for it anyway to match up with my look… LOL  So today I picked up this cute pair of hot pink & black Cross Trainers.

Ask Away Herchel Cross Trainers

 

Yes, I know…I have tiny feet.  I actually get to buy Kiddies sizes most times because the women’s are too big! Can anyone guess what size I am????

10)   Folding six loads of laundry at one time or get a root canal?

Ummm…Root Canal!  I truly despise folding laundry…and I hate to say it I usually do have just about 6 loads in a week.  LOL

    Oh my goodness – all you small feet people in the comments here make me feel like big foot! haha! I wear a 10, which I have always hated because the cute styles used to always stop at about 9. It's gotten better, and usually I can find shoes I like. But it's much harder to find my size in clearance sales.
    I also find my iPhone is my life saver for keeping up with social media. My hubby jokes that if he ever wants to see my freak out he would just need to take my phone! but I do rely on it for so much when it comes to blogging – social media, replying to comments, visiting other blogs. A lot fo that is done on my phone!
    Love the bears – so cute!!
    have a great weekend!
    My recent post Ask Away Friday with NJ!

      Haha! It has it’s ups and downs…LOL Oh my phone is definitely a must for me…I have come all the way back home to get it…but I rarely forget it…LOL Thanks..I\’m still a kid at heart 🙂 Home your weekend is off to a great start!

  • irkedmommy

    You are an amazing person! I love getting to know you more!

    Truth be told: Hot biscuits and homemade, cinnamon applesauce is one of my favorite treats! I also love it on pancakes!

    Stopping by to say hi! Love build a bear, was just in there today, think I’m going to get the girls ones for their birthdays. 🙂 Have a good weekend!

    • MrsTee Post author

      I dread. Always have even as a Teenager. I don’t my washing which is funny. I used to have to walk 2 blocks to wash but is take that over folding LOL. Try matching sock for 3 Kiddies all who wear different sizes!!! Sharpie markers to rescue!

  • Lanaya

    I love the Aloha spirit .. so calm and fun! And you amaze me! Your poise throughout your life, raising a large family and still smiling is just awesome.
    Have a wonderful weekend mama!

    Folding laundry is definitely the worst.

    I can't quite fit into kid sized shoes anymore. But what is even worse, is that my daughter is at the point where she can fit into a woman's size 5, now, and she doesn't get the appeal of kid shoes anymore. This made our shoe budget increase. But we both love Old Navy, so that makes up for it.

    Love that you went to Build A Bear by yourself and built a bear. That is so much fun!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Yes it is! LOL

      Oh wow my Girlie still loves her pretty girl shoes but I can already tell se doesn’t have my small feet so she may no be able to have them for long 🙂

      It was so much fun even by myself. True ME time.

  • tamaralikecamera

    Funny because the topic of small feet came up on my Ask Away Friday too (in the comments) and I'm a six. My sister is a 5.5 and she can easily and happily buy kids' light up shoes.
    And I grew up as one of five kids, so I totally get it about always having each other.
    I think fresh biscuits and applesauce sounds good!
    My recent post All The Good Stuff Happens On Twitter.

    • MrsTee Post author

      That’s so funny! I’ve always loved my small feet because I could get the kid sized shoes … Not sure I’ve ever gone light up but I probably would 😀

      I always wanted that big family as a child having one now is such a blessing.

      It is so yummy Tamara…you must try it!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Haha! I\’m a 5 a 5.5 with an insert. Lol. I used to get a discount when I bought display pairs but now I can hardly find those. Don\’t the Kiddie sections have some of the cutest? 😉

  • Herchel S

    It is so crazy how alike we are! I wear a size 5 shoe so can get away with kids shoes too. All my jeans come from American Eagle, my tees and tanks from Old Navy, Kohls or Target. My iPhone is also my lifeline. Now I just need tl work on scheduling everything too 🙂

    Thank you so much for partnering with me Tiffany!
