When I scheduled my swap with Rea from Reality Bites I knew that I was going to have fun because I had already fallen in love with her honest, fun and carefree look on life in the Philippines and her adorable family. If you want to find out what I’m talking about make sure you head over to her place and visit for a bit.

#AskAwayFriday with Rea from REAlity Bites | MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter.com

Okay, so let’s dig into these questions because Rea definitely came up with some great ones for me:

#AskAwayFriday with REAlity Bites | MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter

1. I’d like to start with this question. What made you smile today? ๐Ÿ™‚

 My Hubby. First thing in the morning he told me how much I meant to him. Definitely the best way to start a day! I also woke up to the laughing of my youngest Kiddies which is almost contagious ๐Ÿ˜€

2. I can see how much you value your big wonderful family. Share the 3 top most things that you will never allow other people to do to your children?

Oh Wow!

1. Hurt them – physically, emotionally or spiritually. I am their protection until the time comes when they can protect themselves.

2. Discourage them – I won’t allow anyone else’s fears, limits or boundaries be placed on my children and their dreams

3. Underestimate them – I will scream from the mountains my children’s potential for greatness and I will not allow anyone to expect less of them than what they can offer

3. My son is 3 years old. Some people say it’s important that kids join preschool while others say it’s perfectly fine to skip it. Being a mom of 6, what are your thoughts on this?

 My oldest (now 17) is the only one out of the 6 Kiddies who attended preschool. I only sent him because I was a working student and needed for him to be in a safe place during the day. If I had the options then that I am blessed with now I would have stayed home with him and let him start at Kindergarten.

I teach my younger Kiddies at home and they are all starting Kindergarten with the same knowledge (if not more) that any preschool attendee would have.

4. What’s one thing you’d like to do as a family but have never done before?

 Disney! I am so happy to say this is something we will be able to check off our Must Do List this summer. We have wanted to take a family trip to Disney since we were only a family of 5 now that we are a family of 8 and our oldest is 20 we knew it needed to happen ASAP.

5. I’ve read that you’re also a fashion blogger for a fashion jewelry website. How different is being a fashion blogger from being a parent/lifestyle blogger?

Yes, I write a post here and there for PrettyInPynk.com as well as post Reviews of their pieces by Blog and Vlog. I can tell you it is so very different! Now instead of simply writing about my life and family I also need to remember to take a picture of my outfit, where accessories and actually pay attention to the fashion trends happening around me.

Although I feel it is a lot different I am so happy that the opportunity has been given to me. I am so much more aware of my look, my style and my fashion identity. I am more than a Mom…I’m a Wife and a Woman who has the right to look good everyday! I’m having a blast ACCESSorizing my Inner Fashionista!

6. What do you consider as the biggest blogging achievement you’ve had so far?

 Hmmm… I would say getting to a point where I have the opportunity to be a part of some amazing Blogging Campaigns and reach an audience that in the beginning I was not sure I would. So far I’ve been able to work with, Kohl’s, Marco’s Pizza, Paula’s Choice and most recently #ChevySalutes for this post as well as this one. This are all opportunities I could not be more grateful for and truly count as blessings.

It has taken a lot of research, handwork and networking but I am in a place where MrsTeeLoveLifeLaughter can begin to reach out beyond my URL and begin to interact and connect with not only through my screen and words but beyond my URL in person and through my personality. I am excited about what the future still holds.

7. I love your blog name! For you, what is…

LOVE — God, Hubby and Kiddies

LIFE — Woman, Wife and Mother

LAUGHTER — Family, Friends and Interactions

…in 3 words each.

*What a fun question!

8. I’ve once posted a photo blog post where I shared a picture of myself with someone or a picture of a time in my life. Share a picture of you in a time of your life that’s over but you wish it hasn’t. What’s the story behind it?

Ok, I don’t want to be a Debbie Downer but I have any times in my life that I wish weren’t over. I say here and look through so many pics but in each one that I considered either a Kiddie hadn’t been born yet, situations were ….well complicated or I was better off for begin past it.

SO, I am showing a picture of a choice that I wish I didn’t have to make. About a year ago I had to cut my hair due to loss and thinning from a medication I was on for my migraines. I regret that so much! When my hair was longer I was always complaining about how hot it was in the summer and how much of a pain it was to maintain but now that I am trying to grow it back I wish I could take it all back and go back to when my hair was right where it was here….

AskAwayFriday with REAlity Bites When I first cut it I loved it! It was manageable, stylish and fun yet now I miss my length. I miss my messy full buns, I miss the long ponytails and I miss the way my Hubby loved it. So, I am on the regrowth path and hopefully it won’t take me too long. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

9. Father’s Day question: What’s your husband like as a father to your children?

I wrote about how important my husband has gone a step away from being just a stepfather to my son and how blessed I was to have been found by him.

He has always been the kind of man who goes beyond what is required of him. My husband is the ultimate Daddy. For him there is nothing to hard, difficult or impossible for him to make our children happy. He will teach, discipline and spoil them in one day and to disappoint them for he is the ultimate hurt.

I love that he is the type of Daddy who will get down on the flow and play, run around in circles or simply sit and have a day of video games. There is nothing he won’t do to spend time with and make our Kiddies laugh.

For me, my husband takes his role as father to our Kiddies beyond biology and shows himself to be their Father, Protector, Provider and Friend.

10. Mrs Tee in numbers.

Number of favorite shoes you own – Ok, just favorites? I’d say heels, sneakers, sandals, boots… at least 10.

Number of posts on your blog since Day 1 – 537 Posts! Wow, I never even looked that up before.

Number of linky parties you currently & actively participate in – I keep a Page with the LinkUp Buttons I participate in. There may be a few more because I think the best way to make friends is to be friendly. Supporting fellow Bloggers in their endeavors is key.

I currently CoHost The Mommy Monday Blog Hop, Tunesday Tuesday,  AskAwayFriday and most recently the Social Media Mixer So that’s 4:D

Number of goals you have for this month – 10

Number (total) of hours you’ve spent writing this post – 2

 

How much fun were those? I think I may have to borrow the numbers questions ๐Ÿ˜‰ Be sure to head over and visit REAlity Bites and check out how Rea answered the questions I came up with this week.

  • Christy Garrett

    Wow, you had some very long and beautiful hair. I am so sorry that you had to cut it off. Hopefully, you can regrow it. I chopped my hair off and donated it a few years ago. I kinda like it shorter, less hair to deal with.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Christy! I love the short look but miss some of the versatility of the length…it\’s growing back slowly but surely.. LOL ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Brittnei Washington

    Hey Tiffany! You have so much going on since the last time we chatted. Congrats to your son and your family. I had no idea that was the reason why you had to cut your hair. It looks great then and now of course. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you're having a great Monday.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hey Brittnei! Yes, life is definitely moving fast of us. Thank you so much! It is an exciting time for sure. Yes, my migraine medication plus the stress of the migraines themselves just took a toll. I am glad I have it back to a healthy place Thank God and hopefully can get some of if not all of my length back. I had a wonderful day and hope you had the same … xoxoxo ๐Ÿ˜€

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Christy! It gets easier with more Kiddies because the older ones can help teach them most times through their everyday activities. They don\’t even realize they\’re learning ๐Ÿ™‚ As long as I keep a schedule to remind me of everything, it\’s not so bad LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ era definitely gave me some great questions…thanks so much for coming by today!

  • ssgannett

    Such an awesome swap! I am so with you that no one have better ever do any of those things to my kids. Only my oldest did pre-school, as well. The two younger ones learned all that they need to from the oldest and the hubby and I. Wow, that is some really long hair! Mine is about that long, and I have been thinking about getting a cut, because during the summer it is so hot, and ponytails, can give me a headache, so I normally braid it, because I really don't like it hanging in my face. But we will see. LOL! Hope you have a wonderful weekend, Tiffany!
    My recent post #AskAwayFriday They Asked…I Answered…

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Stacey! Rea really gave me some great questions to work with and I had a lot of fun answering them. Exactly! Maybe we got 6 for the price of 1.. LOL After the first one went I realized I was teaching pretty much the same things at home when it came to the younger ones. Oh, I do know the ponytail headache! I started making them looser or just doing a messy bun. I can\’t wait to see what you decide ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for coming by Lovie…

  • tamaralikecamera

    I love the three things you wouldn't do to your kids, or let anyone else too! You're teaching them wonderful tools.
    We sent Scarlet to preschool and she graduated today! Des will go but not for another year. By then I swear I'll need another baby to cope with it.

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Tamara, it actually took a minute for me to think of only 3… LMBO I tried to pick ones that covered almost everything. Yay! Congratulations! My oldest liked preschool but I just couldn\’t handle the cost with 3 back to back… ๐Ÿ˜€ I\’m on my last in house baby and I am dreading when that Kindergarten day arrives… Lawd Help Me!

  • Beth

    Loved how you summed up the meaning behind your blog name with three words for each of the three words! So creative!
    And it was touching to read how you wrote about your husband – so real and so loving!!
    Loved that numbers questions!!
    Have a great weekend!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Beth, those 3 reasons were all part of why I picked my name. I wanted to cover the parts of my life that make it me. I\’m glad it worked! ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thank you, I am always so grateful to have been found by a man who knows how to take being a father beyond biology.

      I did too! I too Rea I may need to borrow that one in the future ๐Ÿ˜‰

      Have a great weekend…

    • MrsTee Post author

      They really were, Rea had some great ones this week! Thank you, I did too. The convenience of the short hair is nice but I love the variety of styles I can do with it longer. You\’re right the \’in between\’ is solo annoying! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Sonya K

    I hope you guys have a fun graduation weekend!!! That was a lot of hair, it looked really pretty. I'm like you and most moms I know, don't mess with my kids. I agree about preschool, I think you can teach your kids at home everything they would learn in preschool. My son has learned so much from being at home with me, even before we formally started homeschooling. He could read and add at three years old. Know my daughter is two and she already knows her alphabet and numbers 1-10 by sight. So it's just a matter of taking time out to teach your kids.
    My recent post Ask Away Friday with Miss Dre from So She Writes by Miss Dre (Part II)

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Sonya! So far so good, just getting ready for the setting in of everything that\’s happening ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes, I am the nicest person but I have my limits especially when it comes to my Kiddies.

      My 3 year old is so there when it comes to the basic thing she would be learning in preschool especially with his sisters around to help influence him. I rather him have that extra time at home…

  • irkedmommy

    Great questions and answers! I am so with you on the 3 things that no one better EVER do to my family! I also adore what your blog means to you!
    My recent post Ask Away Friday!

    • MrsTee Post author

      Hi Echo!! Yes, there are just certain things a Momma can\’t stand for!! Thanks so much.. I hope your weekend is off to a great start ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Rea Alducente

    Tiffany, I loved reading your answers! I definitely wouldn't want anyone to hurt, discourage, and underestimate my kid too. Love what you said that you're more than a mom who has the right to look good too. I think it's so important that we find our identity as mothers and not get lost in motherhood and parenting.
    So happy you'll finally have your Disney trip with the entire family. And hey, I have to say you had a gorgeous wavy hair, can't wait to see it soon! ๐Ÿ™‚ You've been so blessed. Thanks for being my partner this week and I'm glad you enjoyed the questions. ๐Ÿ™‚
    My recent post Which Senses Do I Give Up?

    • MrsTee Post author

      Thanks Rea! They were some really awesome questions and I had a lot of fun answering them. You know what they say about messing with a Momma and her kids… LOL Don\’t Do It! ๐Ÿ˜€ Yes, finding my style has really helped me get out that Mommy Funk I think I was falling into where everything was about the kids and them and I just went no matter what I looked like. LOL Yes, we are so excited about our trip! Can\’t wait. I haven\’t cut my hair in almost 6 months (besides a trim) so hopefully it\’ll get back there soon… So happy we had a chance to exchange!
