My 15-Year Old Son's View of his Mom
Okay, another Facebook "quiz". This quiz requires the participant to "interview" their child/son/daughter for their answers and thoughts on you, the parent. So, I interviewed my 15-year old son (who will be 16 in three weeks - yikes) only because he was closest at hand. Lucky for him, huh.

Not being in Guatemala.
