Fun ~ what a great post! Your kids so love you! And hello, where have I been? How come I didn't know about your fun "Idol" blog!???!!!! You are very cool!

Yay!!! I am so glad that you did this with your children! Isn't it great to hear their answers? When I was asking them to my 3 year old, the 5 year old was absolutley dying to jump in and answer along with her.

My favorite answer was the one where one of them was proud of you for writing hearts on their cup. How sweet. I have to take my baby a few hours away today to the doctor and my older two are staying at their cousins house for the day. I just finished packing their lunches....complete with a heart on the outside of the brown must be a mother thing.
Have a great day :)
