When Reese was still a tiny little baby I saw a fun little questionnaire a Mommy did for her kids. At the time I could not imagine being about to have a conversation like that with Reese. Well today I did! I asked her the same questions about me and her daddy but did them at separate times so she would have different answers for each of us. Her answers are in italics for me and are in bold for Lance.

Don’t be mean.
