Birthday Interview with Tommy - Age 5

We're continuing the tradition of interviewing our children for their birthday. I'm finding that as they get older, their answers are getting funnier! I have a feeling that Tommy is going to make himself laugh someday when he reads this interview.

So how do you think it'll feel to be five?
I'm feeling very excited because I'm bigger, and finally I'm five.
What kinds of things can you do now that you’re almost five that you couldn’t do when you were littler?
I can pick Ben up.
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite food?  
Um, maybe strawberries. (What about watermelon?) Oh yeah! I love watermelon!
What is your least favorite food?  
Chicken. That's boring to eat.
What is your favorite book?
Wacky Wednesday. And Anna's New Coat.
What is your favorite toy?
Matchbox cars
Do you have any friends? Who are they?
My natural friends are Eliana and Kirsten. All the people that I know are my friends.
What is your favorite thing to do?
Wrestle with Daddy.
What is your favorite thing about yourself?
(After much explanation about what exactly this means...) How I can draw really well.
What is your favorite thing to do outside?
Usually it's to play in the sandbox.
Where is your favorite place to go?
Gilroy Gardens!
What do you want to do for a job when you grow up?  
I want to be a worker. (What kind of worker?) Like, to make houses. And I want to be a daddy.
Where do you want to live when you grow up?  
I want to live with Hannah. She will be my wife. We'll live in Spain. (Why Spain?) Because it's fun.
(Ben: "I wanna live in Candyland!")
Do you think you’ll get married when you grow up? Who do you think you’ll marry?
Yep. Hannah.

How old will you be when you get married?
Sixty or seventy. I prefer seventy because that's older.
Where do babies come from?
(Ben: "Tummies!") God designed that babies come from girls.
Is there anything you’re afraid of?
Tigers, if they're out of their cage. Oh, and our rooster because he attacked me. I'm going to call him 'Stinker' because he's so mean to me.


  1. You are right, this is very funny, especially his plans to marry at 70 :) Happy upcoming birthday to Tommy!

  2. Aw, that's very funny and cute. Happy birthday Tommy! (We have a friend named Eliana also!)

  3. Too cute! Hannah is smiling to hear that Tommy wants to marry her and that it is no longer a secret. She might like Spain too! :) Happy Birthday Tommy!
