I'm terrified of interviewing my kids about telling what they would say!!!

I love that she has no idea what you see in your husband! :)

kelliegene said...

Great answers! I think they both have you pretty well pegged. Too bad I can't get Maggie's response to these questions!!!!

I think the teenage sarcasm is shining thru...gee...can't wait for that to arrive at my house!

Fun, Ginger. I'm glad you played along! It sounds like they know you pretty well...and the cleaning thing is kinda funny! If you're like me it really does seem like I'm always doing it.
