An Interview with Josh

A friend forwarded to me a set of questions that she asked her two kids and I thought I'd try to do the same with Josh.

1. What is something Mommy always says to you?
JOSH: Stop and I love you.

2. What makes Mommy happy?
JOSH: When I kiss and hug Zo

3. What makes Mommy sad?
JOSH: When I fight.

4. How does Mommy make you laugh?
JOSH: By tickling me!

5. If Mommy is an animal what is she like?
JOSH: A bird… because a bird is an animal.

6. What do you like about Mommy?
JOSH: That your hair is so beautiful.

7. What don't you like about Mommy?
JOSH: Uhm… I like everything about you, Mom.
(Awww. This is a very typical answer from him, when you ask him these kinds of questions. He's very diplomatic.)

8. What is Mommy's favorite thing to do?
JOSH: Work!

9. What does Mommy do when you're not around?
JOSH: Look for me.
(I wonder if he imagines me going from room to room calling his name..?)

10. If Mommy becomes famous, what will it be for?
JOSH: A soup *Giggle, giggle* (He was drinking soup during the "interview.")

11. What is Mommy good at?

JOSH: Games, like Mario.

12. What is Mommy not very good at?
JOSH: Leaf Cup (at Mario Wii). Tell me another question.

13. What does Mommy do for her job?
JOSH: Work!

14. What is Mommy's favorite food?
JOSH: Vegetables.
(Not really.)

15. What makes you proud of Mommy?
JOSH: When you do funny stuff.

16. If Mommy’s a cartoon character, who would she be?
JOSH: Jeff, from The Wiggles.

ZOË: Cup. Funny, Mommy. *Cute grin* (Our darling diva just loves to be part of conversations.)

17. What do you and Mommy do together?
JOSH: Play Mario.

18. How are you and Mommy the same?
JOSH: I have light skin and you have light skin. I have stripe T-shirt and you have stripe T-shirt.

19. How are you and Mommy different?
JOSH: That we don’t have the same hair.

20. How do you know Mommy loves you?
JOSH: I know everything.
(Another typical Josh answer.)

21. Where is Mommy’s favorite place to go?
JOSH: To work.

22. What do you want to do for Mommy when you grow up?
JOSH: Cook, I guess, and draw a beautiful picture.

23. What do you want Mommy to continue doing?
JOSH: Play Zingo!

24. What do you want Mommy to stop doing?
JOSH: Shouting at me.

25. What do you want to say to Mommy?

JOSH: I love you.


Okay, this is telling... but, but, but... do let me clarify a few things.

First of all, I don't play Mario with him as often as this suggests. I only fill in for Chris when he's not around. Secondly, "work." That's what I tell Josh I'm doing whenever I'm in front of the computer, regardless of whether I'm actually working, Facebooking, blogging, surfing, or playing Scramble! Note to self: Work, check; but cut down on the other stuff.

No. 24. I wish I could ask him again and I hope that he'd give a different answer this time. I feel so bad about this, because the truth is, I do yell at him. I am trying to
count to 10 and I am trying, I am trying (I'd committed to this in writing. See this post).

Josh's answer to the last question, well, bless him. Even though he wishes that I'd stop shouting at him, he loves me. He loves me. He loves me. He. Loves. Me.

Bless him. Children are such forgiving little souls.

You may be a man, but at least you're a well known character. ;)
I'm just some obscure girl who works in April's office building on the Ninja Turtles! lol I was really hoping for Wonder Woman or at least Word Girl. :)
