  1. What a cute idea! I was surpised by how many facts about you the older boys knew accurately (height and age). Happy Mother’s Day Lauren!

  2. This was so cute! I asked my kids these questions and their answers cracked me up!! By the end, my four year old’s answers devolved to be all about coffee. :). I do love coffee…

  3. This is amazing!!! Loved seeing the differences between all three of your boys. I can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to do one of these!

  4. This is a brilliant idea and a great gift to you and your readers. Though, reading emil’s answers straight through made me laugh harder than I have in a long while.

  5. This made my morning! I was laughing with tears…especially when imagining Emil saying all the things.

  6. Hysterical! This was so fun to read. I am definitely going to try this one out next year:) Hope your mothers day was as lovely are you! xo
