A Fun Mother’s Day Keepsake Activity for Kids

I was looking at older posts on the blog today and stumbled upon this post from Commuter Mom from Mother’s Day 2009. I loved the idea of this quick little activity and agreed with Commuter Mom that this would be fun to do each year to see how the answers changed. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go with my 4 year old Olivia but, once again, she surprised me. She enthusiastically agreed to do it and her answers are so thoughtful. This is the best Mother’s Day present!

    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the pictures on this blog
    loading? I’m trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
