Big Bear--I think I would like you!
I'm always the parent ON the fieldtrips. While I love kids, I don't trust most people with my kids. While I am happy to have my kids' friends to our house, I am pretty cautious about my kids going other places. Maybe a lot of parents are like that.
As for weird quirks, I don't have any! :-D Oh, maybe I should go ask my husband. I am a neat freak. I cannot stand having crumbs on the countertop. While cooking, baking and canning, which I do a LOT of, I have to keep stopping to clean up in the middle of the project.
