For a nice little change of pace, I thought I'd interview my kids to start off the year. I found this questionnaire over at The Train to Crazy, and thought it would be fun to hear my kids' answers Tonight I have Breanne's interview for your reading pleasure. Any comments I added are in parenthesis. Enjoy!

While Breanne and I have had our differences over the last year, she really is such a good, good girl. I'm re-realizing lately that she is, despite how much I've grown to expect of her, only 6. That is not very old, and not as capable of organizing as I'd like, even though she's very capable of doing lots of things I don't think to ask her to help with. I don't know why she and I were butting heads so much, honestly, but as I've made more of an effort to remember that she's only 6 and she's trying her hardest to please me, it's been easier for me to see just what a sweet girl she is, and to just enjoy her company.
