Another mommy blog I happened across today conducted this interview with her daughter and it reminded me that I did this same interview a couple of years ago. I thought it might be fun to revisit the little exercise so I copied this from a Facebook Note I wrote two years ago. I've been in the mood to love up my little ones this morning and this note makes me smile. The only addition I made to it is that I asked Olivia the questions (she is now 3). It is interesting to see how her answers compare to 3 year old Ava Answers!
You can join in the fun too: Copy the questions, ask your kid the questions and write them down exactly how they respond. Link back in the comments if you have done this, I'd love to hear the answers.
I am asking Jordan these questions (When she was 5) and already impatient with me!
I also asked Ava (When she was 3) and she was reluctant too!
I asked Olivia (Who is currently 3).
This interview was conducted on Sunday, March 15, 2009 at 3pm (with Olivia's Additions added today 12/23/2010 at 10:34am)
