What the Kids Say About Their Momma

Ever since Carter was 2 and a half I've done a fun little questionnaire with him for Mother's Day each year. It's so cute to hear his answers each year and I love reading back over what he said in the past. I tried doing it with Elise when she was 2 and a couple months but it didn't go over very well. She mostly just screamed "NO!" at me every time I asked her a question. She was able to answers questions last year and it's so sweet to see what she says. Read their responses from last year at almost 5.5 years (Carter) and just over 3 years old (Elise) here and Carter's responses from 2015 at almost 2.5 here, from 2016 at almost 3.5 here, and from 2017 at almost 4.5 here. Here are their answers in 2019 at almost 6.5 years old (Carter) and just over 4 years old (Elise):
