Psalms 127:3 (New Living Translation)
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him.
This week we continue with shaking things up a bit. Children are often so pure in what they say. There is no sugar coating it, they just say it as they see it. Their thoughts can make us laugh, touch our hearts and open our eyes.
This week are going to do an “Interview With Mom” and post it to your blog. There are a list of questions below to interview your children with. Feel free to add your own questions or remove any question you don’t want to use. You will then ask your children the questions and post the answers that they give you.
This was a fun assignment for me to do. I was amazed at how accurate my kids’ answers were. It also gave me some insight into who they perceive me to be. I showed me what things I seem to emphasize. I called my oldest also for this assignment because I was curious what his answers would be. We had a funny conversation, especially about the first question. I changed the one about how old I am because they all know how old I am. Here are their answers.
