Kid Q & A

I really have so many things to say but I don't want to talk\write about any of it. I am in a freaking stupid funk this week ... the kind where you start crying at your desk at work or over a text your daughter sends you. Instead I am stealing a little something from T's blog ....

Aw, that's sweet. I agree that question #19 from your oldest is touching.

Sounds like you are a great mom and have every reason to feel proud.
