Interview with my kids

interview-with-kidsThe other day I overheard my daughter telling her friend that her mommy knows Taylor Swift. I interrupted her and said, “No, sweetie, I don’t know Taylor Swift” and she looked confused and said, “I asked you if you knew who sang the song and you said yes.”

So I thought I would conduct an experiment and interview my children to see how much they really know about me. I can now officially state that I’m a stranger to them.

  1. I love this! It has inspired me to interview my 5 an 3-yr-olds!

  2. This is adorable! And I love how most kids think their moms love mac and cheese!

  3. This is amazing. Hysterical! When I could have wine (preggo, 6 more weeks… counting down the days) my 2-year old would point to my wine glass and be like “momma’s.” I guess they know the important stuff. 😉

    I have my grandson fill out a questionnaire about his mother (my daughter) every mother’s day. She gets a laugh every year at what he perceives is her job, what she like to do when not with him and what she is good at and not so go at…!!!! He’s 6 now and each year it just get better & better – great laugh for me!

  5. Well Mac and Cheese is the nectar of the Gods to the 7 and under crowd so I can’t blame them!

  6. A digger? Interesting. What might you be mining for? Gold? Do you need an assistant?! PUT ME DOWN!
    This is hysterical. Your 2 old is a genius. Ask this kid more questions, he is the key to the answers of the universe, if he can come with THAT at 2? He needs to be my Life Coach.

  7. LOVE this. TOTALLY sharing on FB.

  8. What a great idea, and how hilarious!

  9. This was great! I was dying laughing as I was reading it aloud to my mom. The stuff kids come up with!

  10. One word- Hilarious!

    You are too funny, yet so down to earth. Thanks for bringing some laughter to my day.
