The good, the bad, and all the funny stuff of modern family life (but mostly the funny stuff).

In what ways is your home town unique from other places you've lived or traveled?

What do your kids love most about living in the European Union?

What outdoor activity do you enjoy doing most with your kids?

This year I'm actually praying for rain in the UK, and LOTS of it! My four-year-old, Big Sis, has been lucky enough to try two great pairs of Wellies (Rainboots) this Autumn/Fall. You can read what we thought of them here: http://www.mummyslittlemonkey.com/2012/10/splish-splash-splat-kids-rain-boot.html

What's the most awkward or funny thing that has ever happened at one of your family's holiday gatherings?

We had met up with a bunch of my hubby's distant family when one of his second cousins pulled out a photo album and began pointing out the different family members. 'Wow, look at the state of them!' OH laughed, pointing at one couple. 'I hope I'm not related to them!' 'That's my parents,' the man replied.

Your pockets are filled with toy figurines, used wipes, and cheese sticks Your turn around every time someone calls 'Muuuuuuuuuum!' You call dogs 'Woof-Woofs' You have one really strong arm, from carrying your child You talk slightly too loudly Your favourite words are: 'Stop!' 'No!' and 'Hurry Up!' You have a laundry pile as tall as your child You find it normal to say things like: 'Stop chewing your sister' and 'Why are you naked AGAIN?' You'd rather have a cuddle, than a night out.

Are your kids hooked on a toy, clothing item, or style trend that makes you crazy? If so, tell us why and share a picture!

My youngest is currently obsessed with a zebra-print sun dress and wears it EVERYWHERE!!!! She puts it on over her clothes, and every time I manage to coax her out of it, I turn around 10 minutes later to find her back in it again! She wears it wet, straight from the washing machine, inside out, and even puts it on over her pyjamas and sleeps in it.
