Interview With My Children

A friend of mine had this interview with her son as her status update.  I was interested in how the Wee Joneses would answer the questions so I gave it a try.  The instructions were: WITHOUT ANY prompting, ask your child these questions and write down EXACTLY what they say.  It is a great way to find out what they really think.  When you re-post put your child's age. I made a point to question the kids separately.  Here is what Enzo(age9), Clara(age7), and Aston (age 4) had to say about Mommy Dearest.

1. What is something that Mom always says to you?
ENZO: "It's homework time"
CLARA: I don't know, I really never hear you.
ASTON: A secret

2. What makes Mom happy?
ENZO: Me being nice to Aston, Clara, and Dorothy.
CLARA: If I clean my room.
ASTON: A flower.

3. What makes Mom sad?
ENZO: When I disobey your rules.
CLARA: To go to jail...well it would, wouldn't it?
ASTON: When she's in fire.

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
ENZO: Funny jokes.
CLARA: I don't know, you're too serious.
ASTON: She do everything.

5. What was your mom like as a child?
ENZO: You liked to play in plays.
CLARA: Nice.
ASTON: I dunno.

6. How old is your mom?
ENZO: I'm guessing 33 maybe 32.
ASTON: A grown up.

7. How tall is your mom?
ENZO: I'd say about maybe five feet ninety seven inches.
CLARA: Tall??  You're not three feet...I crack myself up.
ASTON: Big as a grown up.

8. What is Mom's favorite thing to do?
ENZO: Chat on Facebook.
CLARA: Clean.
ASTON: I don't know.

9. What does your mom do when you're not around?
ENZO: This one is hard.  Let's see, take care of the house.
CLARA: Clean.
ASTON: I don't know.

10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
ENZO: Cross Stitching.
CLARA: I don't know.
ASTON: For being nice.

11. What is your mom really good at?
ENZO: Making food.
CLARA: Playing Hang Man.
ASTON: Reading books.

12. What is your mom not really good at?

ASTON: I don't know.

13. What does your mom do for a job?
ENZO: She doesn't have one.
CLARA: Blog.
ASTON: Go to the store.

14. What is your mom's favorite food?
ENZO: I don't think you have one.
CLARA: Pineapple.
ASTON: Eggs.  Just eggs with ketchup.

15. What makes you proud of your mom?
ENZO: How nice you can be to me.
CLARA: If she plays Hang Man with me.  That's not all but I only want to say one.
ASTON: Saying I'm a good boy.

16. If your mom were a character, who would she be?
ENZO: I don't really get this one...a mom. (In the past he told me I'm just like Ant Man, whoever that is.)
CLARA: I have no idea. (Aston walked by at this point and interjected, "My mom died and now you're my new mom".  This is complete b.s., for the record.)
ASTON: I don't know.  You're not a character anymore.

17. What do you and your mom do together?
ENZO: Read.
CLARA: Hang Man
ASTON: Eat some food.

18. How are you and your mom the same?
ENZO: We both like reading.
CLARA: We look alike.
ASTON: We're not the same.  Only if you were a boy we would be the same.

19. How are you and your mom different?
ENZO: I like video games and she doesn't.
CLARA: I don't like cleaning and you do.
ASTON: We're not different at all.

20. How do you know your mom loves you?
ENZO: Well, she takes care of me.  She feeds me.  She lets me have privileges.
CLARA: She tells me.
ASTON: Smiling at me and be happy at me and staring at me.

ENZO: He's funny.
CLARA: He's nice.

CLARA: Home.
ASTON: To the store to buy food.

23. How old was your mom when you were born?
ENZO: Uhmmmmmm...33 minus 9...about 24 maybe 25.
CLARA: 24, is that right?  Or were you 25?
ASTON: No idea.

There you have it.  Mrs. Jones according to her children (except for Dorothy who was busy nursing, eating chalk, and chewing on a Mega Block when I interviewed the other kids).
