Shatzi said...

So cute!! It's so nice to know that your kids think your driving is perfect. I think I'll ask my kids next time were in the car about my driving.

BrittanyLane said...

I was a little disturbed that my kids think I clean the house all day and that it's my favorite past time. Do we live in the same house? Clearly they don't pay attention.

Sharee said...

This is very very funny! I laughed a ton! Such a cute idea. I will have to do this someday...

patrecia said...

That is very good!

Sally said...

I loved it! I may steal this idea!

BrittanyLane said...

Feel free! I stole it from another blogger as well. I've seen these same questions used over and over, so I don't even know who to credit. :)

Brittany said...

I, also, loved that you clean all day long :) And that Brandon's favorite food is onions and he likes naughty jokes.

Marie said...

I haven't read any blogs for awhile. This one is priceless. I really really needed a good laugh.
