Ha! That was great! I'd be afraid to know what my kids would say if they could communicate well enough to tell me. :) I loved their answers.

Mandy said...

Jesse is hilarious. I love that he thinks you like to put them in thier rooms, and that you are not really good at anything. Much better answers then I got.

Alison said...

Oh, this made me cry. I had such a bad day and reading this made me realize I am not alone in my attempts to be a good mommy. Thanks for posting the real stuff. I hope you are doing well and feeling good. babies are what we do. Loves...

White Family said...

Mike and I laughed so hard. I love how you always put things in their exact words. I can't wait to do fun stuff like that with Evey. You guys are too funny.

Alison said...

I am not selling them, probably be gifts. Would you like one? I would love to give you something you actually enjoy. I am using them as picture frames. let me know.
Try the video again if you want. It worked just now.

Dilgers said...

That was funny I am going to do that with my girls. We'll see what they say...if it is not too bad I might post it. :)

Emily and Kyle said...

funny! I'll have to try this sometime.

Jill Hunt said...

That is the cutest idea! And kids are so honest. I love it!

Alan and Jeni said...

That was so funny! I'm gonna have to try it out on our kids.

I did this same thing, '20 questions', with a couple of my kids---just haven't posted yet. Fun to read yours! Sure gives you a window into their little brains!

Joanne said...

How funny! I just barely did this same thing with my kids, except it was with different questions - Bekah was sending around that email about the 2nd-graders who answered questions about their moms and came up with bizarre answers, and I thought it would be fun to see how my kids answered the same questions. Your questions are much better, though - I'll have to make them do it again.

Karalee said...

I love it! I will have to try that with my kids. It will be interesting to see what they say. Thanks for the idea.

I am not sure if you even know that I look at your blog occasionally.....but I had to tell you how cute your interview was. I love that Grace thinks you would be the character of Hannah Montana and that Jesse thinks your favorite thing is to put them in their rooms. Thank you for sharing that with us.

I want to try this. What better way to get a good feel for how I'm doing as a mom. Though I'm a bit scared to face the honesty.
