I just love the #StuffMyGirlSays – the interview with my 5 year old

Holy heck! I almost blew it!! Last year I shared two super fun interviews with my daughter. One from when she was three and the other when she was four. At the time when I did the four year old interview she was nearly five, in fact she told you all that in the interview, so I made a mental note to do her five year old interview “in a few months” to get some time between them… anyway as these things go, here I am only a month away from her sixth birthday so I had better get cracking!!

“Be with me.”


7. What do I do when you’re not around?

9. What’s my favorite food?



10. What do you and I do together?

“Play and make up new games and have fun.”


11. How are you and I the same? 

“We are part of the same family. We both go to school on Monday and we both like cats, butterflies and lady bugs.”

20. Do you have any final words Sweets?


What are they?

“I can jump really high and turn into a butterfly. I like to dress up like a princess and my favorite toy is a doll named Baby Nancy. And my family loves me.”


Ha! It totally cracks me up that she still identifies my favorite food as “noodles.” I was pretty surprised that so many of the answers remained the same from last year. I didn’t review with her or even mention the questions from the last time out yet she still answered some the same.

Makes me think it might be time for some different questions! Except for that one about my best friend because I hope her answer remains “ME” for many, many years to come!

Now it is your turn! If you have children, or grand children, do your self a favor and interview them. They have such interesting things to say! I’ll be back next year with the six year old version…. here’s hoping I’ve moved on from “Noodles” by then!!

  1. Kathy,
    This was hilarious! Loved reading it. 🙂
    The bit that made me laugh the most was her answer to the question “What do Mommy and Daddy do when you go to bed?”
    My son is 19 years old so I don’t think the answers he would give would be that fun 😉
    Actually you gave me really good idea. I think I’ll interview him for another project I’ve been working on!

      Thank you Cigdem! I think an interview at any time could be very interesting. I interviewed my Dad before he died and learned some interesting things from him that I didn’t know before… As I’m writing this I realize that I have a ton of interviews to schedule!!

    • Kathy says:

      I love that too. She has been very consistent with this answer… sometimes when people ask what she wants to be when she grows up she will say that. I really look forward to seeing how it manifests!

  2. She is just TOO adorable! I always look forward to these interviews – I did remember that she answered noodles as your favorite food from last year. 🙂 And I adore that she wants to be a tree!

  3. How incredibly precious kathy!! Especially, “I can fly.” What a great idea to interview your child! (Time-travel NOW please – I wish I could go back and do that!) There are so many reasons this is a good idea besides it having created a beautiful blog post:
    1/ it pays such good attention to your child
    2/ it gives you insight into things you may not have known
    3/ it preserves a moment in time
    I’m in awe!

      Thank you so much Lori! I really am glad I’ve been doing it. I really should come up with some other regular interviews as she loves them and I do always learn something about her.
