Learning/understanding my kids

Today I had my boys answer questions. I didn’t help them, I just gave them the list of questions and had them type out their answers. As they get older, their need for having ol mom around as much is changing. The chats and cuddles we used to have have diminished and with the craziness and busyness life seems to be throwing at us keeps us drifting further and further apart. I had them each write down answers to these 30 questions. I was a bit surprised, but it gave me a bit of insight into their hearts. Slightly. Here are the questions and  responses of both boys.
