My boy is always quite talkative but for some reason, he was especially chatty after school yesterday. I decided to take advantage of his unending banter and interview the little guy for my blog. Our conversation is below.
Me: So, how was school today?
The boy: It was pretty decent.
Me: Did you do anything interesting?
The boy: Yeah. A man came today and talked to us about bullying. He was really cool.
Me: What is your favorite subject at school and why?
The boy: I enjoy science because we get to study interesting animals and I like spelling because I'm just plain good at it.
Me: What about your least favorite?
The boy: Probably social studies because half the time my teacher just makes us open our book and read along while she plays a tape of some guy reading the words. It's boring.
Me: If you had to decide right now, what would you want to be when you grow up?
The boy: Either a drummer, a brain surgeon or a famous chef.
Me: We've visited a bunch of different places during our travels. Which is your favorite?
The boy: I liked Seattle the most because there were so many interesting and fun things to do. And also Disney World because of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
Me: Are there any other places that you would like to visit?
The boy: France, so that I can eat all of that good food... and also Japan.
Me: You keep bringing up food. So tell me, what is your favorite thing to eat?
The boy: Sushi, steak, a nice piece of pan-cooked fish, a bacon cheeseburger and New York pizza. I can't pick just one thing.
Me: Are there any foods that you hate?
The boy: The worst is broccoli salad. I like broccoli, just not in a salad.
Me: What is your favorite day of the week?
The boy: Definitely Saturday. I get to go to breakfast and the drum shop with Dad, do family stuff or play with my friends, and play some video games.
Me: Tell me one thing you are really good at.
The boy: Playing drums.
Me: Is there anything that is really hard for you?
The boy: I'm not a very fast runner.
Me: What is one of your best memories?
The boy: Hmmm... My favorite memories are going to breakfast on Saturdays with Dad and on special lunch dates with you Mama.
Me: What is the most special thing about you?
The boy: That I have red hair and was born on St. Patrick's Day. How often do you think that happens?
Me: Thanks buddy. Do you know how much I love you?
The boy: Yes, Mama. A lot.
He's right. I do love him a lot.
