Interviewing the Kids :)

Saturday night I came up with a list of questions I wanted to ask Marky...but Sunday morning when I started my "interview" at the breakfast table, Mr. Boy was very shy...so I asked Julia the questions...and then Mr. Boy was very happy to answer them!  Julia's answers will be in pink and Mark's in blue.

Part of me wishes you could have seen my kids during this interview because Julia was standing in front of me dancing, jumping, and being her happy go lucky self.  And Mark was calmly perched on Daddy's lap sucking his thumb.  Some questions he just didn't answer but I know he knew the answer!

Mommy's Interview Questions:

1. What is your full name? Julia Star McInerney (said in a sing song voice) Mark...(Ciro McInerney! She likes to finish his sentences)
2. What is your favorite toy? My room
3. Who is your best friend? Marky    Emma (Coyle)
4. Who is your favorite person? Daddy...and Mommy 
5. How old are you? 4      (Two fingers were held up)
6. Where do you live? In HERE!
7. What are you going to do on your birthday? Get my ears pierced!   Go to zoo
8. What do you do at Grandma's house? Play     Play
9. What do you like to play with Mark/Julia? Toys   Puzzles (Mark is getting REALLY good at puzzles)
10. What is your favorite food? Chicken, with noodles, and carrots...chicken soup!   Noodles and sauce
11. What is your favorite show or movie? Fresh Beat Band, Diego, Dora       Tangled
12. What flavor birthday cake do you want? I want a pink cake with pink FLOWERS  Chocolate with chocolate heart
13. Are you handsome/beautiful? Yes!!!     (Mark did a head nod)
14. How did you get so handsome/beautiful? Cause God made me!     (shy look)
15. Who made you so wonderful? God!!!!    (another shy look)
16. Who Loves You? God!!!!   (smile, and shy look)

Interviewing my children gives me pure joy because I get to hear/see how they think and it gives me the opportunity to REALLY listen carefully to what they are saying and not saying.  It helps me to "get" them.  Mark had answers for all of these questions.  He talks up a storm.  But I interviewed them at breakfast...next time I will do it during school time when they have PLENTY to say...I wanted John to hear their answers.  We laughed and hugged the kids and smiled.  Loving and learning your kids is such a joy.

I still can't get over the fact that in 3 short months I will have a 3 year old and a 4 1/2 year old...time is flying by!  "The days are long but the years are short!"



Please leave an encouraging comment...I'd love to hear from you!
