My Husband Interviews My Daughter, About Me

So long ago that I don't remember where it came from, I copied a set of questions to ask the kidlet - a meme, if you will. Here's what she - at six and 5/6 - has to say about me. And despite a huge urge to editorialize, I have refrained.

1. What is something mom always says to you?

"Put your pajamas on!"

2. What makes mom happy?
When I wake her up and kiss her.

3. What makes mom sad?
When you don't do what she says.

4. What does your mom do to make you laugh?
She tickles me.

5. What was your mom like as a child?
No idea.

6. How old is your mom?

7. How tall is your mom?
About nine feet.

8. What is her favorite thing to do?
Make me laugh.

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
Go to work.

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

11. What is your mom really good at?
Kissing me.

12. What is your mom not very good at?
Putting me to bed - she always forgets to sing me a lullaby.

13. What does your mom do for her job?
She works at a ballet studio.

14. What is your mom's favorite food?

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
Never forgets to read me a book.

16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be?

17. What do you and your mom do together?
Hug and kiss and have fun.

18. How are you and your mom the same?
We both have blonde hair.

19. How are you and your mom different?
My personality is prettiness and mom's is "I don't know".

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
She kisses me.

21. Where is your mom's favorite place to go?

#19? Hahahaha.

Whether or not her impressions are accurate, there's a lotta kissing going on, which gets my stamp of approval.

Kyla said...

I love #19!

meno said...

#17: Awwwwww. That's sweet.

mames said...

this is so great but i think she might have gotten the height question wrong.... you couldn't be more than 7 feet.

i need to mark and save these questions to put to the boys in a few years.

If I had a nickle for every Mom who would be famous for singing and yet always forgot the lullaby....

It's good. I came across one of these that Angus had done at nursery school and for what do you want to be when you grow up he said Elmer Fudd. ....?

S said...

aww. this is cute cute cute.

Mental P Mama said...

#19 is a hoot. The rest is just amazing and just pulled at my heart...I want my babies to be babies again!

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

It's all touching--but I'm picturing you as a giant looming over her to kiss her!

alejna said...

This makes me happy in so many ways. Those answers are wonderful.

I've got to try this with Phoebe.

About nine feet and a good kisser! You're a star.

Remind me to send you some links re treadmills. I did lot of research.

flutter said...

she is so rad. I love that you are 9ft tall

Lady M said...

Adorable. And full of kisses!

bipolarlawyercook said...

Oh my goodness. I predict lots of lullabies in the future.

Tweetie. But the kisses-- and tickling-- sounds like you pretty much get an A.

"My personality is prettiness and mom's is "I don't know". I love that girl.

FreshHell said...

Love that her personality is prettiness. :)

i like that there is a kissing theme to her answers. and maybe the key to getting her to stay in bed is the lullaby. it's worth a shot! ;)

i've been meaning to do this with my own child for well over a year. maybe I'll actually do it.

Unknown said...

#19 sounds like something MY kid would say ;)

YourFireAnt said...

Adorable. Glad she thinks you're nine feet tall. Mothers need to be.

leanne said...

Such a sweet, fun kid. And what a neat idea.

Rima said...

You sound like a pretty good mom to me, all nine feet of you!

Dora said...

Sweet. You must be an awesome kisser! ;-)
