No ice cream for breakfast!!!
I interviewed Monkey D today. She is 5 years old. It was fun to hear her answers. I did not expect quite a few of these, and they made for a good laugh.
Me - What is something I always says to you?
M.D. - I can't have ice cream in the morning.
(This is true, and she asks me way too often at breakfast time!)
Me - What makes me happy?
M.D. - When I make valentines for you.
Me - What makes me sad?
M. D. - You are sad when I am sad.
(This is true also!)
Me - How do I make you laugh?
M. D. - ummm, can we skip this question? I can't think of it.
Me - What was I like as a child?
M.D. - I think you were sweet and liked to play.
Me - How old am I?
M.D. - 15.
Me - How tall am I?
M.D. - Um...15 inches.
(As she answered this she looked from my toes to my head, counting to herself)
Me - What is my favorite thing to do?
M.D. - You play tennis.
Me - What do I do when you're not around?
M.D. - Laundry and stuff.

M.D. - Playing tennis on t.v.
Me - What am I really good at?
M.D. - Helping me with stuff and picking out Halloween costumes.
Me - What am I not very good at?
M.D. - You are always good at things.
Me - Can you think of something I am NOT good at?...
M.D. - But you are good at everything!
(I could tell she did NOT want to answer this one. I think she did not want to hurt my feelings.)
Me - What do I do for a job?
M.D. - A mom and a tennis player.
(Hmm, about now I'm thinking I should lay off the tennis a bit).
Me - What is my favorite food?
M.D. - I think pepperoni pizza, is that right?
(Not even close, but cute.)
Me - What makes you proud of me?
M.D. - I'm so proud when you give me candy.
(Hmmm, I wasn't expecting this one.)
Me - . If I were a cartoon character, who would I be?

M.D. - I like orange and you like pink.
Me - How do you know I love you?
M.D. - Because you are so sweet to me.
Me - What do I like most about your daddy?
M.D. - When he helps you, and you are proud he is a dentist.
