It would be fun to do every few years to see how the answers change.
I love the "how tall is your mom" and how A said "8 of my clear kid rulers tall" SO great!

Very cute! I might have to try that. I'm curious and little nervous about what my kids would say.

You're not good at acting like a kid and fighting and crying? What kind of a mother ARE you? :) This is so cute. Great answers. I did this with my kids too. Love it.
