An Interview with the Birthday Boy

My baby Emory recently celebrated his birthday!  He says he's not a baby anymore, and I guess at 4 years old he's technically right.  He's not even the baby of the family anymore, but I am having a really hard time with this one.  Emory is excited to be starting Pre-K at home with us and about moving up in his outside classes.  He is rotten to the core, and he is all boy!  He's spunky and spirited and outgoing and loving.  I decided to interview him for his birthday, because he's the type of kid who will make up random answers to easy questions just for fun, and I wanted to see what he would say.  I'm finally getting around to posting it!

How old are you?  4  *gasp*  I'm 4!

What's your favorite color?  Green.  Red, my favorite color's red.  {It's green!}

What's your favorite food?  Tacos!  But I don't like chicken because it's nasty when it has something on it.  {He did not like my chicken tacos about a week before this interview}

What do you like to learn about?  Uh, I like um...well, you know, I uh...I like to learn about...uh, mmm...uh, you know... {or something to that effect anyway}

What do you like to play?  Dominoes  {He likes to build things with dominoes, not play the actual game of Dominoes}

What's your favorite movie?  Mickey Mouse {This would not have been mom's guess!}

What's your favorite book?  Spider-Man

What do you want to be when you grow up?  Santa.  I want to be Santa for Halloween.

And, just for fun . . .

  1. Wow, Happy Birthday to Emory. 4 is very big. My littlest just turned 6 and it is hard, they grow up way too fast. I think while he may not be a baby to himself anymore, he will always be your baby. However big he is.

  2. Ah, happy birthday to your little guy. I did interviews with my boys recently. When asked, "What is the yuckiest food in the whole wide world?" My seven year-old responded, "Pancakes and eggs." Guess what I had made for breakfast that day? LOL :)
