It’s that time of year again – when I become that Pinterest-y mom and interview my kiddos for their birthday. Heck, who am I kidding? I’m that Pinterest-y mom more often than not now. Without Pinterest and their endless ideas to keep preschoolers from becoming TV obsessed zombies, I would have three little TV obsessed zombies.
But, that’s a story for another time…
I guess you can call these interviews a tradition now because I did the same thing last year too. This year I asked the same 20 questions. I got a lot of the same answers and everyone answered without tears…unlike last year.
one | How old are you?
Henley: This many. Holding up 4 fingers!
Sadie: 1. I asked her multiple times and she was insistent that she was only a year old.
Jase: 14. 1-4. I’m 14!
two | What is your favorite color?
Henley: Blue and pink! Pink is a new one for her!
Sadie: Pink. Of course. The same as last year too!
Jase: Green! Like the Ninja Turtles.
three | What is your favorite toy?
Henley: Chase. From Paw Patrol.
Sadie: My baby doll.
Jase: My garbage truck. It’s so cool.
four | What are your favorite animals?
Henley: A puppy and a giraffe. She’s still my little animal lover.
Sadie: Sheeps like Timmy. Timmy is what she calls her Lamby from DocMcStuffins.
Jase: A giraffe
five | What is your favorite movie?
Henley: The Secret Life of Pets because it’s about pets!
Jase: The real Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – ie. the one with Megan Fox in it. I think he has a crush on April.
six | What does Mommy do for work?
Henley: Just computer work. Yep.
Sadie: You do computer stuff. Yes.
Jase: You work on your computer. Correct.
seven | What does Daddy do for work?
Henley: He gets some tractors for people.
Sadie: I think he works at his office on his computer.
Jase: John Deere! Right!
eight | What do you want to be when you grow up?
Henley: Chase! This is the same answer she gave last year. Dog. Paw Patrol. Obsessed.
Sadie: A ballerina.
Jase: A ninja!
nine | What is your favorite thing to eat?
Henley: Hot dogs and french fries. She is proof you can live off of french fries alone!
Sadie: Cereal. That’s mommy’s girl. It’s my favorite too!
Jase: Pizza like the Ninja Turtles! He’s TMNT obsessed right now. Can you tell?
ten | What’s your favorite flavor of ice-cream?
Jase: Vanilla. I’m not sure that’s 100% true since he ALWAYS asks for chocolate!
eleven | What is your favorite book?
Henley: All the Paw Patrol ones.
Sadie: The Elmo Potty Book. I’m not sure why we still have this book since they’ve all been potty trained for awhile now!
Jase: Little Blue Truck because daddy reads it to me all the time. Definitely his favorite. He picked the same book last year.
twelve | What is your favorite song?
Henley: The Paw Patrol song. See, obsessed.
Sadie: Let it Go. The same answer as last year!
Jase: Take Me Out to the Ballgame!
thirteen | What is your favorite thing to do outside?
Henley: Play baseball at Nana and Papa’s house.
Sadie: Make creations with chalk.
Jase: Play baseball with dad!
fourteen | What is your favorite TV show?
Henley: Paw Patrol
Sadie: Strawberry Shortcake
Jase: Ninja Turtles. I bought a season of the 1986 cartoon series on Amazon and he loves it!
fifteen | What makes you happy?
Sadie: Snuggling with my dolphin Strawberry.
Jase: Playing with my trucks with daddy.
sixteen | What makes you sad?
Henley: You. When you leave me. I completely understand, Little Butt.
Sadie: When Jase doesn’t share your phone.
Jase: When daddy says bad words. Haha!
seventeen | What makes you scared?
Henley: When Maggie barks too loud.
Jase: When my sisters scare me in the dark. Those meanies!
eighteen | What do you like to do with Mommy?
Henley: Make things. I think she means crafts. She was over with the questions at this point.
Jase: Hug and snuggle. Awww. I love it too, Buddy!
nineteen | What do you like to do with Daddy?
Henley: Ride on his shoulders. I know he loves it too.
Sadie: Watch Handy Richard. Known in most households as This Old House on PBS.
Jase: I like to help him a lot.
twenty | If you could go anywhere, where would you want to go?
Henley: McDonald’s. Ugh.
Sadie: To the movies. Me too, Buggie!
Jase: Walmart with daddy. Daddy was gone a few days this week. I think someone was missing him.
In less than 48 hours my babes will be 4 years old! How quickly time flies when you’re having so much fun. Or when you have triplets that make you contemplate your sanity on a daily basis.
For the 62,709th time, I will say – I wouldn’t change a thing. We are blessed beyond belief!
