20 Questions with Ben

My first “baby” turns 7 on Friday. Seven! And while 7 is old (compared to the once little bitty baby) I find myself having to remind myself that he’s only 7. He’s smart, funny, and says things that are wise beyond his years and that sometimes leads me to have slightly unrealistic expectations for the guy. And like every momma at some point or another…or often, you think, Am I screwing my kid up?

This questionnaire has been floating all over blogland and Facebook and honestly I was a little hesitant and nervous to hear what Ben might say. But just when you think you’re doing it all wrong, your kid will surprise you…and make you tear up a little (hello #11). And then when you start to get all, MY KID IS AWESOME, I’M A GREAT MOM, he brings you back to reality (cough #9 & #12). Thanks kid.
