Recently I've been inspired by an idea from Lauren, over at Sparkling Adventures. She asks her girls the same series of questions on their birthdays and records their answers in yearly "birthday interview" posts for each child.
I decided to put together a set of similar questions for our family's own birthday interviews, and as Mr J's special day happened just two weeks ago, he was my first interviewee.
