Mommy & Me Interview

Just found a questionnaire for children this week and LOVE the idea.  You can interview your kids once, or do it every year to capture their thoughts and opinions.  LJ is still a tad young for this, but BJ and I did it tonight.  I laughed so hard reading his answers to Marty over the phone.  If you have little ones at home try it out, it's a hoot!  Here are just a few of my favorite answers of his...

1.  Mommy asks her child to recite his name: BJ (he recited his full name, very proudly I might add).

2.  How old are you?  "Uh..  4 years old."

6.  What do you want to be when your all grown up?  "Um, 5, I want to be 5 when I grow up."  Mom says, yes but what do you want to do for a job?  "Um, work on trucks, and get, and... fix the engines, that's what I want to do when I grow up.  Everyone needs help working on their engines."  Yes we do, good career!

8.  What's your favorite book?  "David & Goliath."  Mom says: But we don't have that book…  "The book is in the 5th wheel mommy.”  We don’t have that story book Josh…   “Mommy, it’s  in the BIBLE!"  Oh, haha, DUH.... (We DO have that book!)

12.  What is your favorite song to sing?  "Uh...  Jesus loves me, that's my favorite song to sing...  May I please sing it right now???"  LOL! 

What a little blessing he is.

Here is the link to the full list of questions, you can print it out and do it together year after year. 

I'm also thinking I will start snapping a yearly shot like this to go with our interview - maybe even do this around their birthdays:
Only I'm thinking I'll have the kids stand in front of our white board (instead of laying down on a blanket) with their age written over their heads.

Anyway, hope you enjoy!
