An Interview with a 3.5 Year Old

I got this interview from the lovely Lorissa of LJ Design and Photo, and I thought it was hilarious. I couldn't wait to try the questions out on Gracie.

What is something mom always says to you?
Don't run away

2. What makes Mom happy?

Being a good listener

3. What makes Mom sad?

Bedtime and naptime

(oh, yeah right!)

4. How does your mom make you laugh?

From making silly faces

5. What was your mom like as a child?

Like a baby

6. How old is your mom?

This many (holds up five fingers)

I'm five?

Yeah. Five

7. How tall is your mom?

Like a giant

(seriously, I'm 5'2'' and the shortest person in my family, including my 12 year old cousin)

8. What is her favorite thing to do?

Play with me

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?

Play with my toys

(um.... no)

10. What is your Mom very good at?


11. If Mom became famous what would it be for?

{insert Gracie crying here}

Why are you crying?

Because I don't want you to be famous! I want you to be my mommy!

Gracie, seriously. Stop crying. If I went on TV, what do you think I'd be doing.

Being on a cooking show

(for what, making macaroni and cheese and chicken nuggets?)

12. What is your mom not very good at?

Not good at doing the alphabet

13. What does your mom do for her job?

Work with Angie

(Angie is the gal who does my prints, and one of Gracie's favorite people)

14. What is your mom's favorite food?


(It really isn't. We just eat spaghetti all the time because it is quick and cheap)

15. What makes you proud of your mom?

Taking a shower

(exactly what is she trying to say here?)

16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?


(she’s right, I would choose Ariel)

17. What do you and your mom do together?

Play tag and paint

18. How are you and your mom the same?

Because we have hair

19. How are you and your mom different?

Because we are different than penguins

20. How do you know your mom loves you?

Because you lick me and you’re my friend

(yes, that says LICK not LIKE. Apparently I lick her)

Got a little kid of your own? Be sure to interview them! You just never know what is going to come out of their mouth.

How stinkin cute!! Love the minds of 3.5 yr olds!

I would be curious how my 7 yr old would respond.

casserole said...

This is priceless!!!! I gotta do this with Liv!

Winklepots said...

That's just too cute. I wish Peri's communication skills were a little better so I could do the questions with her. I laughed out loud at the shower answer. :oP

The Momma said...

That is too funny! I'll have to do that with Autumn and she what I get!

Denise Felton said...

OMG. That actually made me laugh out loud in my cube. I, too, have noticed that both you and Gracie have hair. And that you're not penguins. I was surprised, however, to find out that you're such a tiny giant!

Double Dipped Sweets said...

This is hilarious! I've got to go home an interview mine!

Lorissa J. Longfellow said...

very cute. The answers are amazing sometimes. I keep thinking of re interviewing her in a couple weeks to see what changes.

belleandboo said...

oh my goodness that is so cute, I laughed out loud at the hair and penguin comments.

Leah said...

I tried interviewing Andrew and he said "byeeee!" and shook his head no. Don't think it bodes well for me that "bye" and "no" are the two things he can communicate, LOL.

Karen Faulkner said...

What fun, I'm even going to try this on my older children (9 & 14). If the answers aren't too mortifying or boring, I'll put them on my blog! thanks for sharing.

sweetpicklespottery said...

I am laughing so hard! This is hilarious! I have to try this out!!

Sarah said...

That's adorable. I wonder if I could get my three year old to listen to me long enough to answer the questions.

I left you an award on my blog, you can find it here:

So adorable!

Cathy said...

Very cute...
I started "interviewing" Thomas and answers were going along okay, then he started to ask why...from there I got "My tummy's hurting cos you're asking too many questions!" lol so that was the end of that!

shiborigirl said...

This is WAY cute! I love her answers - I think I have a permanent grin on my silly face for the rest of the night. :D


Janna said...

What an awesome idea! I LOVE all of the answers Gracie gave. I'll have to try this at my house! No telling what Zach will say.

AlyGatr said...

OMG, I'm crying :) I'd love to try this with Amelia, but I fear she's in some weird stage right now where I ask a question and I get a random comment that has no bearing to the question asked..."SweetPea, where are your shoes?"...answer "Green is my most FAVORITE color Mommy". I like that 5'2" is 5'5" I'm gargantuan!!

Kelly said...

too funny, marisa! i will have t interview my girls with this one. thanks for sharing! :-)

LillyShayStyle said...

This is my fav. interview to read! Now I just have to interview my almost 3 year old.

Lori Anderson Designs said...

Ok, I am SO doing this!

(Very cute that she didn't want you to be famous!)

Marie said...

ok, that was so stinkin hilarious! I am going to do this with Isabella and Nathan and see what the different responses would be.
