Interview with Jackson

I don't think I've ever done one of these before. I was having blogger's block today and Annalee inspired me. I'm sure there are better questions to ask but I was lazy and just googled "funny questions to ask your kids." I'm not sure this is funny, but number 11 made me laugh. And the answer is no!

1. What is something Mommy always says to you?

2. What makes Mommy happy?
Being silly.

3. What makes Mommy sad?
Not doing what she says.

4. How does Mommy make you laugh?
To tell jokes.

5. What was Mommy like as a child?

6. How old is Mommy?
I can't tell.

7. How tall is Mommy?

8. What is Mommy's favorite thing to do?
To play with me.

9. What does Mommy do when you're not around?

10. If Mommy becomes famous, what will it be for?
Be on monkey bars.

11. What is Mommy really good at?
*Whispers* Are you good at golfing?

12. What is Mommy not very good at?
Playing baseball.

13. What does Mommy do for her job?
Help me.

14. What is Mommy's favorite food?

15. What makes you proud of Mommy?
Getting me a toy.

16. If Mommy were a cartoon character, who would she be?
Minnie Mouse.

17. What do you and Mommy do together?
Get snacks.

18. How are you and Mommy the same?
We have the same skin.

19. How are you and Mommy different?
Because you have long hair and I have short hair.

20. How do you know Mommy loves you?
Cause you love me. *How do you know?* Because you're my mommy.

21. Where is Mommy's favorite place to go?
To Chinese! *Chinese what?* Restranot!

That was such a sweet post. I love listening to my girls and how they view our family and the world around them. Our children truly are a blessing from the Lord.

The Haines said...

what a great idea... I've got to do this! Thanks!

p.s. I hope all that fame from your mad monkey bar skills doesn't go to your head ;)

LAURA@laurasblondemoments said...

Haha! That is adorable and a great idea to see what your kids will say. I loved #18 too- what makes you the same. My son just turned 2 so I may have to think of some questions for him to answer.

Laurie said...

This is really cute. Now I want to write these down and ask Emily.

Erin Ward said...

Haha! I love that little goof ball. That was so sweet. And it will be even sweeter to read when he's older!

AugsburgDaisy said...

This was terrific! Loved doing it with my children. Great conversation starter! :) I'm going to keep a record of their answers.

Tara G. said...

So fun, Amanda! I just interviewed my kids for a photo book we put together for a friend's 92nd birthday and the answers were just hilarious and precious at the same time!

Deidre said...

Sweet! I love #8 and #10. Can't wait to hear you've taken up golfing {wink}. I love these questions.

jenmom said...

Love the "restranot" part!!!

If you don't mind I think I'll steal this idea from you ;)

Ashley McWhorter said...

That is so precious and fun!! Such a great idea. :)

Anonymous said...

Oh. My. Word. That is so sweet and cute!

Leah Adams said...

Hmm, I don't have kids. Wonder what kind of answers I would get if I asked my husband these questions?????


Lindsey said...

This is really adorable. I love the one "How do you know Mommy loves you?"... sweet

Rhonda said...

Sweet post:)

Shellie Paparazzo said...

Wow! Who knew that someone could be famous for being on monkey bars! That's the first one that made me laugh. I sort of lost track after that. You're right. #11 was really funny! I wish I'd done this with my kids when they were little. I wonder what they'd say now?

Susy said...

LOL!! That is hilarious, I will have to do that in 2 yrs! Dont you love that you are human version of Minnie Mouse? :)

Molly said...

OK - #6, #10...He is too much!

That is a great idea!

What fun!

Longmeadow Mama said...

Stole your idea and just did this with my 6 year old. HILARIOUS! My favorite was when I asked him what my job is and he said windexing!
A second calling, perhaps??!
Thanks for the fun!

Dionna said...

So cute. You should ask him the same questions in two years and I bet his answers will be totally different!

And here I thought your favorite food was Mexican... :)

Kelsey said...

What a great idea and yes it was funny. Loved it! You should do it with AB when she's older, maybe even ask them these questions again when they're 18 and see what answer you get.

debra parker said...

#11 made me laugh too.

Maryellen said...

Precious. I love #20
Oh if we can be so confident and sure. When God says, How do you know I love you and we say just as assured as Jackson, Because your my GOD !

Faith of a child . . . priceless

bethany said...

I love it! I am going to do that with my nephew Cole (he is 1 month younger than Jackson) fun!

Sarah said...

soooo cute/funny. are you really good on monkey bars? i remember the rusty blisters i'd get from the playground monkey bars growing up. :0) your little guy is sooo precious!

Ashley said...

I thought #10 was pretty hilarious...monkey bars? We'd get along great if you've got love for Chinese food. I could seriously go for some fried rice right now.

AKat said...

Cute! You should ask Jackson
questions more, these are precious! Minnie Mouse made me chuckle; he must love his mommy and think she's sweet like Minnie!

Jeannie (HAPPY HEART) said...

Oh, Amanda how precious!! You made my heart smile with that post :)

I don't usually do this but I have a friend who really needs prayer tonight and I know alot of moms visit your site. Mallory is in critical conditon. I have watched as she has ministered to many children and she is but a young girl herself. She will be recieving a medication to help her lungs tonight or tomorrow. It has never been given this way before.
Her site is

Thanks so much for your prayers! Oh, girls hold on to those sweet moments. They grow so fast!

Marla Taviano said...

Super cute. I may try that with Nina (though I'm a little scared to).

Carrie Beth said...

Love this - I may have to steal it and use it on my blog! I am sure my three would have interesting answers to these questions.

Emmy said...

So cute! : )

Katie - a Blessed Mommy! said...

Too funny! I'm going to have to do these with will. Thanks for sharing!

Melody Joy King said...

Kids are the best. I love that you just never know what they might say. His answers are adorable and so funny. This was a great idea. :0)

MississippiMom said...

That is too precious! I'm going to have to ask my daughter those questions just to see what she says...might give me a little more insight than I want though!

Thanks for sharing!

Katy said...

so sweet!

Patty said...

Cute ;) What a great idea !

Missy said...

I was unaware of your monkey bar skillz!! Impressive!

Jaymie Freye said...

So sweet! =)

Anonymous said...

Awesome! You've inspired me to do that with my kiddos as well.
Loved Jackson's pronunciation of restaurant.

Unknown said...

Restranot!!!! :o)

Ok - Annabeth's turn.

Toknowhim said...

Love this... I think I will try it with my kids too :)

jenny said...

It made me laugh too! SO cute! I have two adopted twin baby boys from Ethiopia! Can't wait for them to be able to talk soon so I can ask them those questions. Although I don't think I'll be as good at the monkey bars as you are! :)

Kristen said...

totally copied you! funny!

Shelli Littleton said...

I loved the #20. Reminded me of when the girls were small. I was at a gas station filling my car, and I realized I had forgotten my wedding ring (from doing dishes). I said, "Oh no! People won't know I'm married." Karalee said, "Momma, they will see us." Having children = married. Precious.

annalee said...

he is precious.
love this!

Kari said...

Love it -- love the idea! I will use for my project 365 album I am creating. When you asked him how the two of you are different I was expecting a "birds and bees" lesson - instead it was only the length of your hair!! :)
