Tommy is turning seven tomorrow, so it's time for our birthday interview! Based on how this interview went, I think I'm going to have to change some of the questions for next year, to make them a bit more mature. He seemed to think the questions were a bit silly. Why can't kids just stay little?
I’ll get more things to do. Like play harder [board] games. I can explore more games.
Apples with lemon juice.
Butternut squash soup with mashed up mushrooms. (I explained that this food doesn't really exist, but then he said, "Yeah, but it would be just so gross!" Fair enough.)
Sideways Stories from Wayside School.
Geotrax train set
My best friend is Joseph Guenther.
Go on a daddy date. Actually, go to Central Park in SF.
That I’m good at helping people.
Climb our redwood tree.
What Dad does. (What does Dad do?) Works with computers. (Why do you want to do that?) Because I like Dad, and I want to do what he does.
I think I’ll live in San Francisco.
Yes… I don’t know yet.
A woman, of course. Why do you ask?
No….Like what? I could make myself afraid of mirrors. I guess there's nothing I'm afraid of.
A baby cheetah. Because they’re really cute and they can hop really well.
Ben: That I have someone to play with.
Lucy: That I can play with her.
Piano, that’s my best thing.
Birthdays make me really happy, because it’s a happy time.
