Mommy and Me (by the Short Kid, age 8)

Saw this on Angie’s blog and it was cute, so I decided to hold my breath and give it a shot. First—eight year old boys are not as cute as four girl old girls. Second—I asked him the questions using the phrase “your mom” not “me”, so he answered using “she”, not “you”. Third—he answered them rapid-fire as though it was the final timed round of a game show. Funny stuff.

    These were great answers! LOL I tried to do this too, with my almost 3 year old boy. The only answer I got was “watch Mickey Mouse club now?”, so I gave up. I may try it with my 7 year old daughter. It’s interesting to see what the different ages/genders say.

    Your kids sound great, btw! I always love hearing about them.
