Time for some fun! During one of my numerous Pinterest binging sessions I came upon some ideas around mommy and me activities. Now that the girls are getting older and communicating much more with me, I figured a questionnaire would be doable.
This one caters to the girls answering questions about me!
The thing about kids is that they answer so honest and those answers can either make you feel warm and fuzzy or worst-case scenario, inadequate. So, I took a chance! I want my girls to continue to feel safe to talk to me about anything regardless of how I feel about the situation. This questionnaire was the perfect warm-up exercise.
Here are the questions with their darling responses…

Most of the answers they gave made me feel that I am doing something right as their momma!! Some of the responses definitely made me laugh out loud! Then there were a few answers that made me realize how much they are actually watching me, observing my actions and reactions…which is scary…but at the same time so beautiful.
Until next time,
