Interview with a 3-6-9-year-old(s)

Well, this sucks. When I started this, the only place I had seen it was on the Facebook friend's page I stole it from. In the ensuing three weeks (I'd done two of them and then forgotten about it), I've seen it four times it this sort of venue. Coulduv been a leader, now just another on the pile.


The subject in question (as photographed by Stewie, age 3):

1. What is something mommy always says to you?

Norah (9): "Practice your guitar!" [guilty as charged]
Pepper (6): "Eat your supper" [it may be that I asked when she was strapped to the table and being forced by trained monkeys to eat her supper. But it does happen often]
Stewie (3): "Hot Wheels! Beat That!" [oh yeah. All the time]

2. What makes mommy happy?

N: "When I hug you" [well, d'uh. I mean awwww!]
P: "Eating your supper" [maybe we'll do this later] "when I was born you loved me so much and you were so happy" [good call, harmzie]
S: [looking at the plant] "umm... I think plants"

3. What makes mommy sad?

N: "When I say I'm going to leave the house"
P: "Not eating my supper" [same the second time, d'oh]
S: "no. Ask 'what makes mommy mad?'" [ans] "I think, nothing"

4. How does your mommy make you laugh?

N: "When you burp and say 'Pepper! How could you?'"
P: "When somebody phones you and they say something funny like 'HI YO'" [she misheard the question, but I liked the answer anyway]
S: "Two monkeys" [that WOULD make ME laugh, depending upon what they were doing]

5. What was your mommy like as a child?

N: "whiny? Ha ha! Just kidding. Cheerful?"
P: "Happy"
S: "Cars"

6. How old is your mommy?

N: "Forty. That's easy"
P: "Twenty-four" ['k come on now, who's my favourite today?]
S: "Firteen"

7. How tall is your mommy?

N: "I'm up to your boobs" [nice]
P: [stands on chair and reaches as high as she can] "six feet tall!"
S: [reaches to the top of my forehead] "this high" [then, while I'm seated, touches my toes and runs his fingers all the way up to the top of my head - sort of weird, but I've decided to go with "adorable". It makes me feel better that way.]

8. What is her favorite thing to do?

N: "burp! ha ha just kidding again! Go to the gym"
P: "play on the computer"
S: "wash clothes" [WTF???]

9. What does your mommy do when you're not around?

N: "She's working"
P: she juggled between "go to work" and "play on the computer". [Not good]
S: "this is a tricky one"

10. If your mommy becomes famous, what will it be for?

N: "winning a race at her first try" [I sure as hell hope so!]
P: "building streets" [yeah!!]
S: "this is a tricky one"

11. What is your mommy really good at?

N: "bossing kids around" [she gets a :- look from me]
P: "building roads"
S: "washing clothes" [I repeat: WTF???]

12. What is your mommy not very good at?

N: "riding a skateboard (probably because you never tried)" [nailed that one]
P: "driving in the dark" [I think I said once that I don't *like it* - because I tend to fall asleep - but I don't know where she got that. I'm a very good driver. My dad lets me drive in the driveway]
S: "building a [race] track"

13. What does your mommy do for a job?

N: "engineers (she does NOT drive a train)" [her words]
P: "build roads"
S: "drink coffee"
[seems they're all paying close attention!]

14. What is your mommy's favorite food?

N: "spaghetti and meatballs"
P: "spaghetti and meatballs"
[it seems these two mistook what I MAKE most often with my favourite food]
S: "sausages"

N: "when she earns $45" [kids are so easy to please these days!]
P: "that she loves me"

  1. your kids make me laugh-cry! :)

    yours think you like to do laundry and mine think I like to sew... are these folks our kids?
    but pepper's really got you pegged, girlfriend.

    #12 - and that's why *I* should always drive the veggie cart :)

    awesome... thanks for FINALLY doing this. :P


  2. All great, but I particularly like the waffles (your comment, not their's). Busting a gut.

  3. These kid interviews are priceless, aren't they? I love hearing what kids think of us all.

  4. I totally love reading these. I did one for my youngest when he was not yet 4, and loved his answers. My sister loved his answers too. (family..)
    I'm sitting tight waiting for the snow to melt in New BrunswicK

  5. You must have very clean clothes. :)

  6. I hadn't seen this kiddy interview before. I thought it was hilarious. Makes me think what my kids would say about me.
