Barista Kids Tell All: Part I

Inspired by a recent post on Babble, I decided to interview my first-born kids. I did this for two reasons. Namely, they work for lollipops. Second, they were the inspiration for this blog when it started in August, 2008. (And to be honest, after this many years, I’m always up for a new story idea.) So here you go: My daughters’ unedited thoughts on life, love and things that sparkle.

How old are you?
Annabelle: 5

I am proud of them. Estelle has good taste in wallets. Even better, my twins didn’t report anything that would embarrass or incriminate me. They aced their first interview.
