What they really think of me...

These little questions have been going around on a note on Facebook. I asked the girls the questions this morning and the answers are too funny not to share. I asked Mara before Emily was awake, so the few answers that are the same really crack me up!

Ok, here they are....

21. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?

I always knew you were tall, but I didn't notice you were coming in at 20 feet!

#15 almost made me cry....I held it in. Barely.

That is adorable. I think your second born is a snuggler much like my second born! All her answers seem to value that lovey, dovey, snuggle time. I wonder if it is because they know they have always had to share Mom and Dad with big sister. Is you third child like this? If so how bad will little Sam be??!!!!

I did the same thing with this poll and just haven't put it on my blog yet. Maybe I will get around to it this week.
