Interview with a Three-year-old

It’s a pretty ridiculous idea, but as I was swinging the boys on their play set and I was asking Brogan questions about his day, I thought, what if I just started asking him random questions – like I was interviewing him? Wonder what sort of answers I’ll get…

Me: Brogan, what is mommy’s favorite thing to do?
Brogan: Cook. But you’re just a home cook. Daddy’s a chef.

Me: What’s daddy’s favorite thing to do?
Brogan: Put the boys to bed

Me: What’s your favorite thing to do?
Brogan: Play fire trucks woo woo woo [spot on sound effects]

Me: Why do you like playing fire trucks?
Brogan: Because you get to use the walkie talkie and say Roger that we are on our way!

Me: What’s your favorite animal?
Brogan: A mouse
Me: Why?
Brogan: Because mouses are quiet
Oh, the irony

Me: What’s your favorite color?
Brogan: Pink
Me: Why?
Brogan: I love it because the girls like pink

Me: What’s your favorite food?
Brogan: Pizza and sausage and pancakes

Me: What’s your favorite vegetable?
Brogan: Seeds
Me: Why?
Brogan: Because squirrels love seeds
But of course!

Me: If you had a lot of money and could buy anything, what would you buy?
Brogan: Sunflower seeds

Me: If you could go anywhere in the whole world, where would you go?
Brogan: To the market
Me: What would you buy at the market?
Brogan: Sunflower seeds
Duh, that was a stupid question

Me: What do you like most about Beckett?
Brogan: I like him because he is sweet to me. But when he’s not sweet to me, I don’t like him. And when he bites me, I’m going to bite him back.
Eye for an eye, son

It’s never a dull moment. I think I will periodically ask him these questions and see how his answers change. Such a treat to get a glimpse into his spunky little mind.
