I know Mother’s Day was a good month or so ago, but I totally forgot about posting our annual interview. And, what’s a month late in the long run? Nothin’ absolutely nothin’!
For Mother’s Day we went to the Pacific Science Center, but shortly after Mother’s Day I took the kids to the zoo. That was our just mama and the kids trip. Jem and Max were big fans of making animal faces. If you ask me, they are quite the little impressionists! ^^^ Fierce tiger + serious wolf award def go to those two. ^^^ Reid loved the reindeer most of all. He’s MIA from this year’s interview though since is current vocab doesn’t really suite answering questions. By next year I bet he’ll have a lot to jabber about!
Handing the mike to Jem now, the 6 1/2 year old sweetheart …

And then, Max, he’s seriously hoot. And a trouble maker. And a favorite of so many. You just can’t not love this one! Emotionally he’s struggling a bit with his transition to big brother (again) while still falling in line as Jem’s little brother. I don’t doubt that it’s hard for him and we’re working to make life stable and calm despite his efforts to drive us all bonkers. But, I mean, how can you not adore this funny almost 5 year old?!?
