I Don't Want To Grow Up: Reflections On Turning Six

Each year I've written a little bit about Molly and Jack on their birthdays. I started this tradition on their third birthday, when they were old enough to answer some questions themselves, so I started asking.  Along with their annual "night before birthday" photo, I've added this annual list of questions to the many traditions we want to enjoy with the minions.  Here is what they had to say this year.  I can't believe they turn six tomorrow!
