Five Senses Meme

Bonnie came up with this one and I thought it was cute and different. And since she tagged everyone, that does include me. So, here we go!

1. Sight - My kids getting along. They are almost 6 years apart in age, and though they love each other fiercely, they fight A LOT. My 8 year old is a bully to his little sister because he's bigger than her, and my 2 year old is a pest to her older brother because she loves to push his buttons. Sigh. BUT! Every now and again they click and I love nothing more than to see them playing together so nicely. It is a nice reprieve. :0)

2. Smell - I am a freak about smells. In fact, if something smells bad I will hold my breath until I can get back into a "safe zone". I don't want to inhale the stink. Weird huh? Oh well. Anyway, so it makes it hard for me to pick just ONE favorite smell. I love the smell of baking bread, and my hubby's cologne, my kids freshly shampooed heads, dryer sheets, and lavendar.

3. Sound - This is another hard sound to narrow down to one choice. But, as most of you already know, I LOVE music. So, I'll just go with that whole generic category for my choice of favorite sound. I normally have music playing non-stop at home. I think I would go crazy without it. :0) I also love to hear my kids singing along to the songs. Nothing better. :0)

4. Taste - These categories are so hard to narrow down! Holy cow! This one, though, I think I would have to say chocolate. :0) But not just any chocolate. The darker the better. I love the taste of dark chocolate....the I prefer mine frozen. There is nothing better than biting into a bar of frozen dark chocolate. I'm not kidding should try it. :0)

5. Touch - Oddly enough, I am not a touchy feely person. I like my space and tend to feel a bit claustrophobic when even my kids get too cuddly. Sad, huh? But, my even so, my favorite thing to touch would have to be the faces of my kids. I love to hold their little heads in my arms and play with their hair, or stroke their cheeks, or tickle them under their chins. Those are some of my favorite moments. :0)

So, now that you have the general idea of how to play....get on with it! I tag all of you that wish to play. Thanks. Bonnie, for the great idea of this one. It was fun and yet oddly hard to think of my favorites for each of my senses. I look forward to seeing what the rest of you have for answers.
