Nice. I had my kids answer these questions, too. I 'll have to get them posted. I think it's great that all of your kids have things in common with you that are so varied. You rock!

Those answers were so cute! I love it that your kids don't think that you are ever sad that that you tell funny jokes. No wonder it is so nice to be around you. How cute that you could be famous for being a beauty queen or the best mom! I am sorry that you aren't a good juggler.
