Sarah's Interview

Going through one of my journals and I found an interview I did with Sarah in January. I do these little Q&A's every once in a while - started it with my sisters kids and now with Sarah - mostly because some of the answers can be hilarious. It's also a great way to look back and remember what your kids were like at a particular age. We often forget the small details, or at least I do. When you scribble it all down in a journal or add it to a scrapbook page, there's a guarantee you'll re-read it one day and it will make you smile.

Oh this is just too sweet! I did this almost every year with Noah (Now if I could only remember where all the pieces of paper are that I wrote the answers on)! It's so cute to look back on! You're such a great mom!
