Interview With a Five Year Old

Our first baby girl starts kindergarten this year, so I’m feeling a little nostalgic.  

I thought it would be fun to ask her a few questions each year and keep her responses to see how they change as she grows.  The following "interview" took place in the midst of flying toys and sister drama, but no one was hurt during the interview least I don’t think so...

1.  What are you excited about doing this school year?
     "playing with their toys" ~ (good answer)
2.  What do you want to learn at school?
     "how to ride a horse" ~ (she is so my child)
3.  What would you like to be when you grow up?
     "a cowgirl!" ~ (me too!!! it too late?)

4.  What do you love most about your baby sister? (as a toy flies through the air)
     "Nothing!" ~ (they were having a bad afternoon)
5.  What do you love most about Daddy?
     "he's so sweet to me" ~ (awe :)  He's pretty sweet to mommy, too!)
6.  What do you love most about Mommy?
     "you're sweet" ~ (thank you!...but I think you forgot to say that I was pretty and tons   
      of fun?!...maybe next time?  Ok...)
7.  What do you love about yourself?
     "my hair" ~ (I really love that, too!)

8.  Favorite TV Show?
     "Phineas & Ferb"
9.  Favorite Movie?
     "Finding Nemo"
10.  Favorite Food?
      "Green Beans" ~ (really?)
11.  Favorite Drink?
12.  What's the best thing we've done in your five years?
      "the Dixie Stampede" :) ~ (We’ve flown to Oregon, visited the Red Woods in California, 
       gone to the beach each year, but yes, I can understand how the Dixie Stampede would 
       rank up there!)
13.  What's your favorite toy? ~ Never mind...

14.  What do you dream about?
      "going to the playground and riding dragons with Elaina...these dragons breathe water 
      not fire...because they’re know, because only red dragons breathe fire!" ~ 
      (well...yes, of course I knew that...don't all mothers know that?)
15.  What's your favorite thing to do?
      "hugging my mommy and daddy and playing with them on the swing" ~ (I am so going 
        to keep this and remind her of this later!)

16.  Who loves you most?
      "Jesus!" :) ~  (smart girl!)

She started getting a little silly and tired of all the questions.  We called it a day, and I went from being interviewer to referee...what's new, right?  But this was fun, her answers were priceless, and I probably will forget can't wait to do it again next year!

Have a great day!
Amanda :)
