How sweet! I was getting excited when Savvy was saying you had blue hair... lol

Cyndie said...

Love it! My kids are much too old to say cute things. I'm afeared of what they might say. Maybe I'll ask Lincoln. Even if every answer is RAAAWR! or Milk!

Bridget said...

This is WAY cute! I can't wait to have conversations with Rory, although I don't want her to grow anymore so I guess I'm kind of contradicting myself!

Sarah said...

Love it! It's great seeing ourselves through their eyes.

Christine said...

Hilarious! My favorite was Jaxon saying you're not very good at farting. I about died when I read that.

Michael and Bonnie said...

How cute are they? It must be nice to hear all those nice things. I would be scared to hear what they have to say :)

Kelly said...

So cute! I love it. And I'm stealing it! Mwah-ha-ha!

C said...

Oh heavens cutest thing ever!! I'm stealing this and putting it on my blog, but using your kids as my subjects. Yup. I am.

Maybe I'm just emotional, but that was so sweet I got very teary-eyed.
The ways they see you as different is only your hair-- because you're not that different to them! And how Jax says he knows you love him? Because you love him!
Sooo sweet. I have to try just to see what Ender would say.
