Friday Five - 5 Things I Hope My Kids Inherit from My Husband

1. His metabolism.

I am so jealous of his metabolism.  Adam weighs 10lbs soaking weight.  I really want them to grow up with at least a little help from his biology.  My metabolism sucks.  It works, but it's a constant battle against my weight and I do not wish that on anyone.  Especially my children.

2. His immunity.

He has been sick all of like, three times, in the time we've been together.  Which doesn't count the time he got food poisoning.  I, on the other hand, get at least one cold every season.  I've also had the flu, strep, bronchitis and other things since we've been together. They should have all of his immunity, plus whatever I can add so they don't get sick as often as I do.

3. His intelligence.

He's so smart.  I want our kids to have choices in life and having intelligence certainly doesn't hurt.

4. His curiosity.

He's learning French, he just finished a book about economics, he knows, like, 1,000 programming languages and he asks all kinds of questions.  A lot of what he learned about computers he learned outside of school.  I hope our kids have that quality and that we can encourage it forever.

5. His athleticism.

I'm not so sure about his ability to throw a ball, but he's pretty athletic.  He bikes and runs (the 5K we did last weekend, he didn't train hardly at all and took fourth in his age group.  And he was upset with his time. Which is bull.  He averaged a 6:42 mile.)  He likes all kinds of sports.

Oooo, I like this Friday 5 deal. I think I might steal it for my blog...if I ever start writing in it again. :) Speaking of kids, any plans for those anytime soon??? (Just kidding!!! Take your time!)

@Aubrey LeeAnn You should start writing again! It's a meme hosted over at Living Like the Kings. Kat writes about her life over there and she had THE CUTEST little girl.

Kids are not happening for us for awhile. We = broke.

Is the next list going to be 5 things I hope my kids don't get from my husband?

Going along with your current list, mine is as follows:
1-sense of humor
2-his laid back personality
3-his ability not to find everything in this world irritating
4-his awesome driving skills
5-his stunning good looks
