i always said if i could have hand picked a mother for my grand children. a wife for my son i would have picked this girl Jenn, the girl my son did pick. she is a wonderful mom and wife. i could never have picked a better girl my self. we are so lucky as a family to have her. she is loved by all. she did this survey on her blog that has been going around..the kids interviewing her i would love for you all to see it i thought it was darling!!

>Survey Says...
So I saw this 'Interview your kid' thing on a friends facebook. And then two of my sisters did it and it's such a cute little idea, I figured I'd give it a go. Unfortunately, some of the answers I got from my kids I find rather embarrassing... but I'm going to post it anyway, and I will refrain from editing any of the answers. Please don't judge me! LoL

I interviewed my three kids. Each separately so that they would give more individual answers. I was really curious about how they would respond. Very enlightening. This was fun to do. I highly recommend it. =)
