Interview With My Kids

I was goofing off with the kids yesterday and started asking them some questions and typing the answers.  Remember the phrase "Ask a silly question, get a silly answer?"  Well it's true, but with little kids, the silliness of the answer isn't always dependent on the question.  

Where do you live?
3yo - "I don't live anywhere" 
5yo - "I want to live on a farm, but I just live here."

What was the most fun thing you did this year? 
3yo - "I had chocolate money to eat"  
5yo - "Wrapping baby Jesus to put him ni-night"
I guess they are too young to really know what a year is yet - these are things we did this week.

What animal would you like to have as a pet?
3yo - "A big dinosaur"
5yo - "A horsey"

What is your favorite vegetable? 
3yo - "Blueberries" 
5yo - "Carrots"

What is your favorite holiday?
3yo - "The one with bunnies and jelly beans"  
5yo - "Christmas"

If you could change your name, what would you choose? 
3yo - "My name? I want to keep my name!" (nearly in tears)
5yo - "Pocahontas"

What do you love most about Daddy?
3yo - "Daddy play down the snow hills . . . FAST!" 
5yo - "Daddy lets us jump in his arms and twirls me around."

What do you love most about Mommy?
3yo - "Mommy dancing with me."
5yo - "Mommy makes things to eat."

What do you love most about your brother/sister?
3yo - "Play pretend"
5yo - "Play with him and sit beside him."

Where would you like to go on vacation this year? 
3yo - "To a rocket to the museum to see the dinosaurs"
5yo - "To Auntie Michelle's house, but we need to buy an airplane first."

What would you like to do?
3yo - "Go in a rocket."
5yo - "Get some little horses to play with Shadie."

I tried a few more "what is your favorite . . . (toy, game, book etc.)" questions, but I kept getting the same answers:
3yo - "racecar"
5yo - "indians"
I can't decide whether they REALLY love these things, or the novelty of our game wore off.  Either way, it was a fun way to see what is on their little minds.

I love the way kids think. Great questions and great answers. Such a fun way to see what they are thinking. When do you expect you will be buying that airplane? At the cost of tickets it just might be cheaper to buy one.

That was such a cute idea!
