Friday Five: A Girl and her List

Every Friday I’ll indulge my order-crazed brain in a list of randomness. Welcome to my Friday Fives.

Have you guys seen the quiz going around Facebook? The one you’re supposed to give your kids and then post their honest (hilarious) responses? I first saw one thanks to Amy, whose two kids gave the funniest, sweetest answers. I had a certain Little in mind when I saw more and more friends posting their quizzes, so I invited my favorite guest blogger back to help with today’s post.

Here she is…


She’s suddenly so grown up, suddenly a second-grader, and suddenly (and bravely) in a cast for the next few weeks.

M: Okay, I’m going to ask you some questions and you just answer with the first thing you think of, okay?
