Questions asked by Kimmie

1.What is the number one thing on your bucket list?

Generally, I’d really like to travel more. I want to see Italy and Greece, along with lots of islands in the Caribbean!

2.Why did you start blogging?

I have expertise in child development, as I teach college classes that center around this subject. I’m also passionate about this topic, and I want to help other parents. I know I was a bit lost as a first time parent, and I found the advice from blogs to be helpful.

3.What is your dream car?

I love older classic cars. I would really love a classic Mustang, probably from the 60s.

4.If you could travel to any place in the world, where would it be and why?

The Caribbean. I love the beach and the beauty of it.

5.What is your favorite holiday? Why?

I would have to say Christmas. I do like the presents, of course, but I also like getting together with family. Now that I have a child, I absolutely love seeing her happy on Christmas and enjoying everything that comes with this holiday.

6.If you could sit down for one hour with anyone, living or dead, who would it be and why?

As a psychology person, I’d almost have to say Sigmund Freud. He had some bizarre ideas about some things, so I’d love to “pick his brain” in a sense. I mean, if you know about the Oedipus Complex, I’d like to know where in the world he came up with that!

7.What is your motto or favorite quote?

Honestly, I don’t have one.

8.Are you a dog person, cat person, or something else?

Definitely a cat person! However, I’ve toyed with the idea of getting a big dog such as a Mastiff!

9.What is the best gift you have ever received?

My engagement ring. I hate to sound cliche’ at all, but it was perfect. I’m in love with things that are vintage, and this ring actually came from my husband’s side of the family.

10.What is one thing you would like to learn to do?

I want to get better at pin-stripping!

11.What is one little-known fact about you?

I was diagnosed with a speech disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia. It’s when the vocal cords spasm involuntarily, so it makes it difficult to talk at times. It can make very hard for others to understand me at times.
