Interview with a 4 year old sweetie-pie

I snagged this cute interview from Janet's blog - I loved reading what her kiddos had to say. Here is my interview with Lily:

1. What is something your mom always says to you?
2. What makes mom happy?
"When I say 'I love you'"
3. What makes mom sad?
"When I don't" (say I love you)
4. How does your mom make you laugh?
"When she laughs"
5. What was your mom like as a child?
"You had hair and a neck and legs and arms and a belly and a belly button"
6. How old is your mom?
"Firty-five" (translation: THIRTY five)
7. How tall is your mom?
"Firty pounds" (translation: she has no idea!)
8. What is your mom's favorite thing to do?
"Clean" (this was a shocker!)
9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
(HUGE frowny face while saying the following)..."Saaaaad!"
10. What is your mom really good at?
11. What is your mom not very good at?
"Drawing pictures of people-not as good as me!"
12. What does your mom do for her job?
"Sell're da waitress, mom."
13. What is your mom's favorite food?
"Chicken fwies." (I had to interject at this point and ask if chicken fries were really MY favorite food.) "Um...sawads?"
14. What makes you proud of your mom?
"Dat you let me eat candy"
15. What do you and your mom do together?
"Make spaghetti pie"
16. How are you and your mom different?
"Cuz I was born in China and God made my skin tan and God gave you white skin, mommy"
17. How do you know your mom loves you?
"Cuz you give me a smile and kisses and hugs"

I loved this and think I will find some more questions to "interview" her with.

Hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend...we'll be out of town enjoying time with friends and family. And, just enjoying NOT working for a few days!

How sweet! I love the idea of interviewing our little ones! I know her answers had to have warmed your heart!!!

Beth and Shayna said...

What a great idea. I would love to interview Shayna, but would an almost three year old be able to do sit through it? Hmmm...

she is as precious and insightful as a tiny girl can be! She already knows to underestimate a woman's weight!
