As you may recall, in 2012 my mom got me this book Q&A a Day for Kids. I failed miserably at keeping up, as I do with all things in my life that are “extras.” We made it through April in 365 days… but I’m not letting that stop me. I’ll keep going not paying attention to the dates and write down their silly answers. Some may be a year apart, and some may be three. Does anyone care? I didn’t think so.
Alex, now 4, has picked up some new themes – as you may recall, he was obsessed with Target at the beginning on 2013. But due to a relocation of the store further from our home (BOOOO!!), Target has exited the brain and has been replaced with wrestling.
