I've been loving the answers produced by these questions as I've read some of the mommy-bloggers interviewing their munchkins, but when Autumn and Charlie took a stab at it I thought we might as well do the same. Who says parents should get to to have all the fun?!? The following are Hans' answers as the questions pertain to me, some of which could have used a little elaboration, but that would mean I was speaking for my husband again which I have been trying so hard NOT TO DO. It would be fun to do this again in a year or two to compare the answers, something tells me they will evolve.
