Ahhh, I wish my kids were young so I could ...Ak! No, no, I'm too old to have kids that young again. I've raised mine and no way do I want to hear their answers now. I'll just live vicariously through your Sweetness and Light.

99% huh? That's pretty danged good, Wylie.

Hey Leah... you SHOULD ask your kids. Their 'old and insightful' answers might suprise you more than my 'young and innocent' kids suprised me.
And yup... I'll take that 99%. I suppose with the tween/teen years not far off, I've only got DOWN to go.

99% rocks! :-D Adorable interview with Light. He sounds like a wonderful little boy! And you sound like a great and loving mom. Cuddles! Cuddles are good. :) (As is chocolate!)

H & P!

He definitely knows chocolate will never be a wasted gift for Mom. (mmm...chocolate...)

I loved this interview, Wylie, especially 'she owns the house' (LOL!)

Hope you're having a lovely Thanksgiving.
