  1. What perfect answers..and your kids sound so smart and sweet.

    The one who said you're pretty should immediately get a raise in her allowance and the one who said you're 45 should clean his room, the little stinker.

    They sound adorable..and yeah, really worthwhile uh?

    My cousin has a daughter named Shyla..I've never seen it anywhere else.

    Are you a veg and your kids eat meat? Me too.

    Thanks for sharing..I've got that note completed with my little ones...maybe I should post it on my blog.

  4. This is so adorable!! I can't wait until Daniel is old enough to say some of these things. :) You are obviously very loved.

  5. Wow. How funny to have who you are reflected by your children. The difference between your boy and your girls is striking. :)
