Interview Your Kids, part one

It’s no secret that I love, aka Parenting, Illustrated with Crappy Pictures. It’s a hilarious take on motherhood. If you don’t follow it, now’s your chance!

Anyway, Amber over there posted a two part series on interviewing your kids, and I thought it was fabulous, so I decided to play along.

This week is part one, where you interview your children about yourself. To keep things clear without being too lengthy, my 5 year old daughter’s answers are labeled D and my 3 year old son’s answers are labeled S.

How old am I?
D: 30
S: 3

How tall am I?*
D: 12 feet long
S: big

Where do I go with my friends?
D: Parties!
S: I don’t know. An ice cream place. You like ice cream.

What do I dream about at night?
D: Sometimes scary things, sometimes good things.
S: When you have bad dreams, you have a monster in your dreams. When you have good dreams you have an apple in your dreams.

What am I good at?
D: Cleaning
S: Playing Star Wars game**

What am I not good at?

*I am 5’1″. These answers make me happy.

**I interrupted them playing Lego Star Wars on the XBox to ask them these questions. Also, Lego Star Wars is probably his most favorite thing in the world to play.

***True, true. It’s a preschooler board game. And I always come in last. Even when I try to win. Because we all know that most of the times we as parents play to lose, but I’m so bad at the Ladybug game that I actually try to win and I still don’t.

****Can you tell what issue we’ve been dealing with lately?

*****I have NO idea what he’s talking about. He’s been describing this place for a year now and we are still stumped. The best I can tell is maybe it was a dream?
