Cat in the Hat personality quiz

No, really! It's all in how you answer the question posed by Dr. Seuss at the end of the book - "Well, what would YOU do if your mother asked YOU?"

I realized this last week when reading the story to Hailey (it's her current favourite). When Sammie was going through her Cat in the Hat phase, she always felt it necessary to answer that question aloud after I finished the book, and her answer was always something like, "I would tell my mommy." Now it's Hailey' turn, and she has taken to looking at me with this big wide-eyed innocent look, shrugging, shaking her head and spreading her hands out and saying, "I din't do anyfing!"

So...what would YOU do if your mother asked YOU?

PS Thanks to those who have left comments. I like knowing who's reading. Let me know you're out there!

PPS Jeanne - I totally understand. I have often worked on the computer with a little one in my arms. I'm not usually ambitious enough to type, though. Well done!

Hey D'Arce,

I don't have much of a comment, but I thought I'd let you know I'm out here. I spend most of any nap times on the computer blogging or catching up on other people's blogs (to heck with the housework!!).

Hey D'
so it's 2:00am and I'm on hold with Sympatico tech support (because now is the only 'toddler free' time I've got) and I thought I'd check out your blog to pass the time. As for the cat in the hat, I don't think I've ever read it...but I'll be sure not to deprive Ben of it. If he ever learns any words, I'll let you know how he responds to the final question.
I was also checking out your profile and I'm flattered that you list U&W as one of your favorite bands! I wanted to ask you if you knew that the Rheos are breaking up? They are playing their last show at Massey Hall in March 07. Ling, Mills, Mick and I have tickets and are going together. Devo couldn't make it - he's working the Junos that day. Anyway, that's my update,
Peace and Blessings
