Tony does not like surveys or questions of any sort that do not have a definite answer. He does not care for the color gray–ESPECIALLY when it comes to things you are asking him. Have I ever mentioned that our children are JUST LIKE THEIR DADDY???
So, when I stole this straight from Joshilyn Jackson’s blog, I should have known it would not end well.
What it told me is that I shouldn’t pull my kids away from playing with their stuffed animal tents in the living room floor to ask them questions about me.
And that I drink a lot of Diet Coke. And that we are big on food around here.
