Interview with a 3.5 Year Old

I did this interview on Gracie when she was three-and-a-half, so I thought I'd try it on Annelie now that it is her turn as a three-and-a-half-year-old.

1. What is something Mom always says to you?
Go play outside.

2. What makes Mom happy?
When me and Gracie be quiet
(well, you know the saying... children should be seen and not heard)

3. What makes Mom sad?
When me and Gracie break her stuff.

4. How does your Mommy make you laugh?
By making silly faces
(Gracie said the same thing. I wonder if they'll figure out later in life that my face just really looks like that)

5. What was your Mom like as a child?
Very sad

6. How old is your mom?
(Sure! I'll take it!)

7. How tall is your mom?
Stand up. Let me see.
[I stand up. Annelie points at me]
You're THAT tall!

8. What is her favorite thing to do?

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
Play at the playground.
(She's right. As soon as she's in bed I head straight to the park and swing on the swings and go on the monkey bars and slide down the slide... )

10. What is your mom really good at?
Printing things on the computer.
(I got mad printing skillz, yo)

11. If Mom became famous, what would it be for?
Giving people food.

12. What is Mom not very good at?
Holding the very big circle mirror.
(I object. I am very good at holding the very big circle mirror. In fact, one might consider me an expert at holding the very big circle mirror since I've hung it on our wall in 3 of our houses/apartments. Yeah, that's right. EXPERT)

13. What does your mom do for her job?
Work on the computer.

14. What is your mom's favorite food?

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
When she gives me water.

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

17. What do you and your mom do together?
Draw and work on workbooks.

18. How are you and your mom the same?
Because we have the same hair.

19. How are you and your mom different?
Because we have different skin. See? You have yellow skin and I have yellow skin.
Me: but if we both have yellow skin, doesn't that mean we have the same skin?
Annelie: No, because look at our arms. See? You have skin and I have skin.
(Uh, yeah... makes perfect sense...)

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
Because I love YOU!

Got a little kiddo of your own? Go on and interview them! You never know what will come out of their mouth!

I loved reading this. What a lovely idea! Something to really look back on and treasure. I think your little one is very smart, and my favourite answer is that you play in the playground. Hee! If only! :)

D said...

lol!!! My favorite was 'what makes you proud of your mom' and her response was when she gives me water...hahahahaha

She's proud when you cater to her. that's awesome!
I'm totally doing this, even though abi is 4 1/2. That's ok, right?

Unknown said...

Thanks, Jayne!! :)

And Dena - Totally interview Abi. It doesn't matter how old they are. I'll probably interview my girls again when they're older, just to compare answers b/c they're so funny!

I just posted my interview with the Peanut, my favourite by far is her last answer...

Jonathon Arntson said...

That was a pleasure to read, M!

Really, really cute!! Gosh, I remember those days -- when my youngest did a Mother's Day project at pre-school and said my favorite food was tea (?) and I liked to make pottery (???) and I was 15 inches tall.

Those days are gone. She now posts guest book reviews on my blog and gets her own offers of free review copies!! (She's 10.)

That's absolutely adorable. Print it out and put it in a keepsake box. I did this with my kids in 2009 and printed it. It's my favorite blog post I've ever done!

Your daughter is a cutie!

So funny. Made my day!

Tiffany Neal said...

OH my gosh. This was a brilliant post. Seriously. I snorted a few times (not a pretty sight, by the way).

I might be scared of what my 3 said about me. But I might just have to try!

So cute. Love the interviews. :o)

This one is just as funny as Gracie's was. Only, the "she give me water" was even funnier. She's way more literal than Gracie...and straight to the point. I love that your best skill is printing stuff and that you're going to be a fireman someday. Too awesome.

Marie said...

LOVED this! That pic is so classic Annelie. I should interview my kids to see what they say...

Robert Guthrie said...

Love it - should be in a book!

lol I love the water answer too, so adorable! I love your posts about your little girls. I might try this, thanks for the idea!
