I saw this list of "interview" questions on Wisdom of the Moon . I found myself laughing and "awwwing" as I read the responses so I decided to sit down with Evan and ask them to him.
I also asked my almost 14 year old if he'd like to answer them. "Ummm, no thanks Mom". That totally would take away 15 minutes of his precious telephone time. How dare I even ask!
If you have a few minutes I encourage you to sit down with your kids and record the answers to these questions. I typed everything he said, just as he said it, with no editing. My comments are in blue. I think years from now we will re-read them and smile.
