Ben's Pre-Birthday Interview

Here we continue our tradition of a birthday interview for our newest birthday boy, Ben, who will be turning three in just a few days. We had his family birthday party today, which is why he thinks he's was really difficult for him to understand that his party was today, but his birthday isn't until Tuesday. 

What is your name?  
How old are you?  
Four. (Then after Tommy whispered in his ear)...Oh, three. 
When is your birthday?  
I don't know. 
What is your mommy's name?  
What is your daddy’s name?  
What does your mommy do all day?  
Work. In the kitchen.
What does daddy do all day?  
Work in the workshop. (He doesn't, actually). 
What do you like to play with mommy?  
Play hide and seek.

Poop. (after further questioning...) Spinach. I just like peanut butter. I don't like lettuce.

Do you know what church is? 
What is your favorite thing to eat at a restaurant? 
What do you like to play with Tommy?

  1. Too cute! What a great idea!

  2. How fun! I can't believe that Benji turns 3 already. Some of his answers really cracked me up.

  3. Too cute as always! I am tickled that he picked Hannah as one of his friends to mention (assuming that is our Hannah though). Happy Birthday Benji!
