Birthday Interview with Ben - Age 4

I have to say that Ben wasn't terribly interested in doing this interview, so the answers should be taken with a grain of salt. I conducted it during breakfast, because mealtimes are pretty much the only times he's sitting still enough to carry on a conversation. It was a little difficult getting him to answer me, like he couldn't be bothered to give 'ol mom an interview while munching on his english muffin. The answers are funny anyway. 

So how do you think it'll feel to be four?
I wish we could go to LegoLand when I’m four.
What kinds of things can you do now that you’re almost four that you couldn’t do when you were littler?
I can spin the tire swing when I’m in the middle without anyone helping.
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite food?  
What is your least favorite food?  
Egg sandwiches - those things you make us when we go to Mothering by Heart.
What is your favorite book?
Daddy’s Star Wars pop-up book
What is your favorite toy?
My police car
Do you have any friends? Who are they?
Kirsten. (Any others?) Maffew.
What is your favorite thing to do with mom?
Have ice cream.
What is your favorite thing to do with dad?
Play on the bed.
What is your favorite thing about yourself?
I don’t want to do this one.
What is your favorite thing to do outside?
Play jump ball. 
Where is your favorite place to go?
Pump it Up, Gilroy Gardens, and LegoLand.
What do you want to do for a job when you grow up? 
Read the Star Wars pop-up book to our foster child. (No, I mean for a job, when you’re a grown up. Like, how Daddy works on the computer.) Oh. Policeman.
Where do you want to live when you grow up?  
Near Diana Park. I would go there every day after naps.
Do you think you’ll get married when you grow up? Who do you think you’ll marry?
Kirsten. (Actually, you can’t marry your cousin. Anyone else you'd like to marry?) But I want to! (more explanation about marriage rules...) Ok, then. Essie.
How old will you be when you get married?
Where do babies come from?
Is there anything you’re afraid of?
Monsters. And lions, ‘cuz they are gonna eat me.


  1. This is so sweet. Anna still wants to marry her father. If not, then our best adult friend who is our age :)

    How sweet that Essie already has a suitor. :) I love all of his answers... wanting to read to your foster child, to go to the park after naps every day when he's grown up. Priceless! Happy Birthday to your little guy! :) Louanne

  3. Too cute! Your boys are so sweet, yet all boy! You are doing a great job and will be a blessing to all your foster kids no matter how long they are in your family. Essie is very open to marrying Hannah's future husband's younger brother. :)
