Hmmmm... so apparently I am a slave-driving Mom who only cares about clean rooms, cake and ice cream!! But this was fun... to watch a millions thoughts go by their eyes... to make them squirm... to make them guess. Most of their answers were pretty good... although Cam thinks I am younger and much taller than I am- perhaps he needs an increase in his allowance! But most of all... I love that my daughter just knows that I love her... that she feels it all about around her. That is what I want my home to be... so full of love that you can't escape it.
Happy Mother's Day to me... and all of you...
