Interview with A Spud

I stole copied this interview from Heather of the EO.

It was fun to do with Spud and truly reflects the kinds of varied responses I get to my questions in a day.

#3 made sense and then he got on a roll with 6-13 and I started to think that maybe he was really into it.

Yeah, not so much. Without further ado, an interview with my son.

1. What is something your mom always says to you? Movies

2. What makes mom happy? A video camera (books and chocolate baby, not electronics.)

3. What makes mom sad? Spud whining

4. How does your mom make you laugh? Loves you

5. What was your mom like as a child? A new video (Well of course. Isn't everything like a new video? It's a giant metaphor for life.)

6. How old is your mom? 92 ( I tell my kids I am that old when they ask. It seems younger than my real age.)

7. How tall is your mom? Mommy's taller than a big, big girl (Not so much. Mommy's taller than a 9 year old. Usually.)

8. What is her favorite thing to do? Love Spud and Sprout. (This answer made me cry. It is so totally true, I just forget sometimes.)

9. What does your mom do when you're not around? Washes the dishes

10. What is your mom really good at? Loving us. (Still crying)

11. What is your mom not very good at? Making pancakes (Huh? Then why did he eat 5 last time?)

12. What does your mom do for her job? She does what mommies are supposed to do

13. What is your mom's favorite food? Chicken and Rice (Actually it is steak and baked potato but rice and chicken is cheaper and easier.)

14. What makes you proud of your mom? Some big castles (This answer also made me cry but for very different reasons.)

15. What do you and your mom do together? Play a game while Sprout sleeps

17. How are you and your mom different? A big big book (I like to think this one has some hidden meaning. It probably just means he was getting bored.)

18. How do you know your mom loves you? She loves me very very much

A truer word has never been spoken little man.

You have to love the honesty of kids. It's nice to see that Spud knows how much you love him.

Hmmm... I knew that Spud would say that he loves you... he's so good about saying I love you. (Must be a sign of good parenting)

The movie line didn't surprise me either. Maybe he was hinting that you should give him a movie after all those crazy questions!
