  1. LOL! I'm cracking up about the sitting in the corner comment.

    I had to do this interview with Abby! I will post it later.

  2. That's too cute, love the answers! So you're only 16 huh? And I think your favorite foods ARE hot dogs and chicken nuggets and you just don't want to fess up!

  3. This was so cute!
    Today I asked a few of the kids what their moms and dads do at work and also got some really cute answers. One that made me laugh was Kayla..."my mom makes money at work so she can take me to Chucky cheese.....and I do not like that Chucky Cheese mouse!"
    I love asking this age group such questions...their responses are priceless.

  4. Love these answers! It looks like your 3-year old pulled out some great answers. I haven't done this yet because I wasn't sure if Mikayla would understand what I'm asking, but maybe she would!

  5. That is just tooo cute!!!
    My son did this in Pre-K, and my favorite food was OJ and Cheese Sticks. Yuck!!


Thanks for taking a moment to comment. I love to hear from you!
