Asia - The Interview

As anyone who has young kids or works with them knows, figuring out whats going on between their little ears is not always an easy task.

But, kids do say the darndest things, and they have a unique perspective on life that is really worth learning about. And the amount that their brains change and grow in a year is incredible.

And besides, they're just so cute.

To track their maturing little minds (and mostly just for fun) I decided to start interviewing them every year when their birthday arrives. I "stole" this idea from a Pinterest post...

They suggested starting at age 3. Oh well, too late for Asia. But age 5 is still pretty hilariously fun too.

So, drum roll...Here's the half-decade old Asia Interview!  

How does it feel to be 5 years old?  Greaty-Great! (Every year for as long as I can remember my mom has asked this question of me and my siblings on our birthday.)

What is your favorite color?  PINK
A very common look for Asia.
What are you scared of?  Thunder

If you could go any where in the world where would you go?  To the swimming pool

What is your favorite sport?  Basketball

What is your favorite toy?  Puppy

She changes the name of this puppy quite frequently.

What is your favorite thing to eat for lunch?  Hotdogs  (Funny since I know I've only served hotdogs 3 times in the last year.)

I have no idea why she calls this her Chinese dress but she does...and she LOVES it...
which I can't figure out because it's not pink.  :)
What is your favorite game?  Dora (for Mobigo)

What is your favorite snack?  Cheese  (also, interesting since having cheese is very rare as we can't buy it in our town)

What is your favorite song?  The Silly Song (she made up it up)

 My Silly Song has Pizza,
Bamamas and a Little Fish (Repeat X infinity)

What is your favorite animal?  Goats

I'm pretty sure this is the only time she has been around a goat...but it must have made an impression.

Who is your best friend?  The sisters that live down the street

What do you think about before you fall asleep?  Sleep & Stories

What is your favorite Cereal?  The square ones(she means Golden Grahams...cereal like that is a special treat that we only get if someone sends it to us.)
Incidently, this is also my favorite. 
What is your favorite thing to do outside?  Look for TREASURE!

Happy Birthday ASIA!  We love you!
