Thoughts on Our Daddy by Gracie and Bub

My friend Leslie posted this meme as a note on Facebook, and I've seen it on blogs from time to time. I think it's fun to read and I'm always curious about how my kids will answer. (In fact, I asked them the questions separately and was shocked by the similarities!) If you have a kiddo old enough to answer, feel free to take this for yourself... it's worth it for the laughs!

(Cut and paste these questions and ask your kids their answers, typing their responses. Change it to Mommy or another family member if necessary.)
