A 4 year old Mom

I have been Jacek's Mommy for 4 years!

I am still trying to grasp that he is MINE.  How dare I ever say I am not a lucky person.  For surely I am one of the luckiest.
I put together a bunch of questions and have been bugging Jacek all week with them.
I was only able to ask 2 or 3 at at time until I was (most of the time) politely asked to STOP!
I would love to do this every year for both Jacek and Aidan during the week leading up to their birthdays.  The goal is to have a record of the same questions being asked through the years with a multitude of different answers that are sure to be received.
