    2. My mom's a better mom than I was.

    2. One of them is 12.
    3. One of them is 21.

  5. Why did we get pregnant with our first child?
    1. Whoops. That's why we got married when we did.

    2. Camden
    3. Carl, Jr.

  10. What do I consider my main jobs as a parent?
    1. To prepare my kids for adulthood.
    2. To shelter them from disappointment and failure.
    3. To support and encourage them.

  11. What do I do for my kids on school day mornings?
    1. Pack their lunches.
    2. Make them breakfast.
    3. Read to them.

    1. They think for themselves.

  13. What did I ask for for Mother's Day?
    1. To have this painting framed.
    2. Books.
    3. Peace and quiet.

Argh. I should have just made this a straight quiz. It was harder than I'd expected to come up with two truths and a lie. But I'm nothing if not stubborn. Answers will show up in the comments shortly.

thanks for the answers. I was just guessing. :)
Great idea....
Great list, Darla! I'm terrible at the two truths and a lie game. I'm an awful liar, I blush and giggle like an idiot.

I actually have a TT today - 13 things I love about my mom. :)
Darla - I stink at finding lie although I knew the answers to some of them. Consider how long we know each other LOL

Great list! I had fun, and I hope you get what you wish for, Mother's Day. Happy BTT!
OOOPS! That suppose to say Happy TTs...NOT BTT! *Grin*
Awesome two truths and a lie game! I didn't get very many right, though. I hope you have a wonderful Mother's Day!

Happy TT!
Peace and quiet sounds good to me too!
You always have the coolest TTs, Darla!

I don't have a TT today though.
This is an awesome idea for a TT. My kids are too little to grant me peace and quiet for Mother's day. But I don't mind at all. :)
I'm glad you posted the answer key. I'd never pass your test otherwise!
I'm afraid I didn't have a lot of the answers right. The again I was just guessing. :)
Thanks for visiting my food TT!
Very fun! I enjoyed your TT!
I stink at two truths and a lie too. Like Caryle, I'm all blushes.

Great TT this week.
Hey Darla, I think this is fun! :) Another awesome idea for your TTs!
