I decided to interview Miss Pink, age 6, about her mother, after seeing these questions on a couple of great blogs. It's so fun to get her perspective on things, even when the "thing" in question is me.
What is something I always say to you? "I love you."
What makes me happy? Chocolate. [Smart girl.]
What makes me sad? When you're alone.
How do I make you laugh? When you tickle me.
What was I like as a child? You had the same hair as me, and you had green eyes.
How old am I? 33. [Correct.]
How tall am I? (Thinks) 53 inches. [Not correct, but not that far off.]
What is my favorite thing to do? Read and be on the computer and spend time with me.
What do I do when you're not around? Be on the computer--but I don't know 'cause I'm not here.
If I become famous, what will it be for? Fashion. [Very sweet but I doubt it!]
What am I really good at? Wait--let me think. At the computer. What do you do on the computer?--Play games. [Uh, no, except Scrabble occasionally.]
What am I not very good at? You're not very good at playing outside with us. [Sad but true.]
What is my favorite food? Chocolate.
What makes you proud of me? When you blow bubbles for me and read me a story.
If I were a cartoon character, who would I be? The mom on The Jetsons. [??? Although I would like a robot maid.]
What do you and I do together? Read.
How are you and I the same? We both have green eyes--mine are turning green, anyway.
How are you and I different? I have blonde hair and you have brown hair.
How do you know I love you? Because I was born in your tummy.
I tried to ask Mr. Blue, age 3, the same questions. We got to number 7 before he started saying "I don't know" to every question while spinning around in circles.
What is something I always say to you? "I like chocolate." [Seriously, is chocolate all I talk about?]
What makes me happy? When I stop crying.
What makes me sad? Cry.
How do I make you laugh? I don't know.
What was I like as a child? When you be a girl.
How old am I? 23. [I love this child!]
How tall am I? That big.
Here is Miss Pink celebrating her kindergarten graduation. I love the look on her face! This is how we experience the joy that is Miss P about 95% of the time. (You don't want to see a picture of the other 5%, but I'll take that proportion.)
Mr. Blue was harder to capture at his end-of-the-year school program, because every single picture I took of him on stage was blurry (from him swaying and looking around rather than singing). But here is a picture of him at the church Mother's Day program looking cute enough to melt my heart.
P.S. Thanks so much to Martha, who gave me a bloggy award that I kept forgetting to acknowledge. I promise I did appreciate it, Martha!
