every year on (or near) your child’s birthday!
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 2 (we did about 3 different takes since Morgan was a touch distracted… wanted a sucker, wanted to do each thing I was asking her in the video, you name it 😉
• Would I do it again? I will definitely do this every year, unfortunately I didn’t think about this for Hayden at age 3, or Pinterest wasn’t available to spark my creativity, but hey, I’m staring now! I will be making an album/scrapbook with some photos from her birthday as well as these questions and answers, hopefully soon!
• What I would do differently: nothing that I can think of quite yet!! 😉
