Liam's 3rd Birthday Interview

Liam's third birthday is fast approaching. I can't believe how fast three years has flown by!

We've been busy all week preparing for the family party we're throwing for him this Saturday. Cleaning, decorating, cooking...

Yesterday we took 5 minutes to ask Liam some questions. A '3rd Birthday Interview' we'll call it. I figured the interview would go one of two ways: 1) either he'd be shy and stubborn and not want to answer a single question or 2) he'd be excited and brave and answer a few of them and then get bored.

Well I'll tell you what -- he was a trooper! He sat and intently listened to all of the questions, thought about each one for a bit and then gave the answers. He was actually excited and smiley about the entire process.

Here it is, word for word. And there was no arm-twisting or helping him in any way:

What is your name?  "Liam"

How old are you? "Ten"    (hey, slow down there buddy)

What is your favorite color? "Blue is my favorite"

What is your favorite animal? "Giraffe"

What is your favorite food? "Crackers"    (he was eating crackers when I asked the question - I would say his favorite food at 3 yrs old is definitely pickles)

What is your favorite toy? "Blocks. Yeah!"

What is your favorite song? "Don't Worry. It's a good song. Daddy sings it to me."   (Matt sings the Bob Marley song 'Three Little Birds' to Liam every night when he puts him to bed and the words go "baby don't worry about a thing 'cause every little thing is gonna be alright" -- so he was right on)

What is your favorite book? "Three little bears"

What is your favorite TV show? "I have to think about it." "Hhmmnn..." "Hhmmnn..." "Daniel Tiger"

Who is your best friend? Daniel Tiger    (for the record - he told me the day before that I was his best friend - just sayin')

What make you happy? "Playing" "ABCs"

What makes you sad? "Not happy"

What do you like to do indoors? "Play"

What do you like to do outdoors? "Play"

What do you want to be when you grow up? "Liam"   (that sounds like the best thing to me!)


I will be adding a copy of this to his "Liam Saves file" and I look forward to seeing the different answers he gives each year.

* I saw the idea for this interview on Pinterest and some blogs that I follow. I looked at 5-6 of them and then created my own interview with my favorite questions. If you would like me to email you a copy of these exact questions please let me know (scroll down to the bottom of the page and send me a note w/your email address). I'd be glad to send you a copy!*
