I did this interview, which I think someone emailed to me or I saw on Facebook, back when Brailey was six and Britt was five. A good friend of mine (thank you, Lolo!) posted this on her Facebook earlier this spring, and so I interviewed my B's again. I intended to get this on the blog all summer long! Ironically, when I was looking for the questions to write my post, I found the original interview from nearly seven years ago. How fun! It was a great surprise! So I included their first answers, as six and five years olds, and their most recent answers, as eleven and thirteen year olds. I interviewed them separately, so the fact that some of their answers are the same is interesting. And I think I may have a problem with chocolate...
