Was really hoping one of my kids would praise me for downloading some Lady Gaga and having a big dance party in the den to Poker Face. Guess I'm not as cool in their eyes as I am in my own. (grin)

Holy Interview, Batman! I believe I'm first!

I'll post mine tomorrow. So...he's got a sexy butt, huh?

I think your kids know a) they're loved, and b) you lurve your technology. :)

Gina said...

I think I would be afraid to let my kids answer these questions....

His Girl said...

I'm going to have to do this one.... I love your kids' answers. Sounds like you guys know each other pretty well- I think that's awesome!

Kendra said...

Estes Park is WONDERFUL!!!

And how nice to have a husband with a sexy butt. Even if his daughter thinks so!

Tiffani said...

this seriously has to be one of the best "meme" thingys ever.

I was laughing!!! The sexy butt?? HILARIOUS...those girls are perceptive I tell ya...JuJu said "his lips" remember?? ;)

I loved Sarah's answer about what you'd be famous for...very sweet.

Oh and Abbey's what you say the most "NO!" ;) Gracious!

And I loved that Will was rolling his eyes describing how much you love him--he loves it! ;)

Girl, we dance to Kanye West (edited) and Pink...so carry on...and saying "butt"--you awful mama.. ;) the pirate joke my kids referred to? involves nuts...not the eating kind...it was just one of those things that got "said" and Connor is a boy who has them and it makes him laugh...aren't there worse things??!!

I LOVED this!

Cathy said...

I loved that! I've seen this other places (may have even been tagged on facebook to do it:)) and have thought about doing it myself...but was a little scared what the answers would be.;)

Those are some funny kiddos you have there!

Puva said...

This is simply awesome (:

Michele said...

I LOVED ALL of their answers. These have been so much fun to read. I loved Sarah's answer to #10and Will's answer to #12. Please pull this out for Will for answer #13 when he has children (wink, wink) Sarah's answer for #21 made me laugh.

Rae said...

Too funny-I absolutely love this!!! What a great way to glimpse into the way our little darlings see things! I think I might snag this idea for my blog!

Carpool Queen said...

We should have done a linky. I saw this on Tiffani's page yesterday and when I get some coffee in me, I'm doing it on mine.

Nice on the sexy butt....

Lisa said...

Too funny! You are gutsy to let them answer some of those questions.

These are great.

-S's answer to # 15 and #18
- A's answer for #10 was funny!
and W's answer to #12 made me laugh out loud!

I love it when we get glimpses like this of our blogger friends...real life is funnier than anything we could make up isn't!?

Becky said...

Loved this! Laughed out loud about the sexy butt!!

Anonymous said...

I've seen this a few times now. I think I may have to play too at some point. Although I may be a little nervous about some of the questions.

"You've got the 'pretties.'" How sweet is that?

Spend a lot of time answering radio questions, do you? I'm trying to picture you frantically hitting redial every few seconds.

Shanda said...

This is awesome! I've seen it on FB; just haven't done it myself yet.

Estes Park is one of my favorite places to go too.

Moriah @ Please Pass the Salt said...

Abby's "NO!" and Sarah's "butt" comment nearly made me snort my coffee.

So, so funny.

JenB said...

Funny! I did this the other day too but I haven't posted it yet. (I've been watching Tim Hawkins lately too! Love him!)

Lori Motl said...

So fun! I'm working on mine. Should post it tomorrow. Do you need a new Arkansas mug? I can send you one! Such good insight into our kids.

Megan L Hutchings said...

How precious and interesting ;)! I will have to remember this so I can do it when my kiddos are older.

Christen said...

so cute! can't wait untill the kids get home to do this, not sure what my 3 year old will say, should be interesting. she's napping or i'd start with her right now!

Amber said...

Oh so cute! I'm kind of scared of some of the responses I think I'd get!

Melissa said...

How fun!

Unknown said...

Love this! Trying to decide if I'm brave enough to interview my kiddos....and not edit :)

Sara is a hoot!!

Kecia said...

That made me laugh! And I'm so glad you're polite and obedient.
