20 Questions To Ask Your Kids This Year

I have done a few different things like this over the years, little surveys with the kids. Some focused on them, some focused on their perceptions of the world around them. Every time I do this, I'm taken aback by some of their answers.

I'm hoping to take them out for a photo shoot today since we haven't done one in a while. I always mean to do a session with them around their birthdays, but forget to more often than not.

In the next week or so, I'll be asking each of my kids these questions. I urge you all to do the same. Maybe not with these questions, maybe not every year, but do it and write the answers down. You'll be grateful you did someday and so will they.

We are not talking about the fact that
