From The Mouths of Babes

Facebook, like MySpace (does anyone hang out there anymore?) has about a bazillion surveys always floating around: 25 Random Things About Me, 15 Albums, How Well Do You Know Your Spouse...etc. I typically don't do them. No offense, I like reading other peoples, but I just don't do them very often. This one, however, has got to be one of my favorites. I love interviewing my kids and recording their answers, or having them narrate a drawing they did. They crack me up so much. Kids are the best entertainment ever. So, this survey I had to do. And I found it just as funny as I thought it might be. I interviewed them separately so they wouldn't be influenced by each other. Priceless!

I am little disappointed that the last question was not answered, 'The river for fishing'. I will work with them and we can try this interview again later.

Oh goodness, your boys are too cute. Seriously, outer space? Love it! And, of course, you'd be spidergirl. I would have answered that one the same way. :)
