Questions and Answers -2009

To help my forgetful self better remember my children at this age, I asked the girls some questions last week to start off 2009. I got this idea from one of you but I couldn't remember who -- so, if it is you - let me know. I'll totally give you props.


I also couldn't remember the questions asked, not all of them anyway. So, I used some that I remembered and added my own.

For posterity, here goes. (My comments in parenthesis)

What a wonderful idea and what precious children!!!

What a great idea! I always said as a teacher I needed to write down some of the things my students say so I won't forget. But, never thought about doing that for my kids. I need to try that.
**Just to share a laugh--one of my students told my TA as we were all sitting at lunch together, "Ms.C maybe if I listen closer you'll be funnier." We laughed till we almost cried. Especially since Ms.C prides her self on being funny.
