An Interview with The Four-Year-Old
I’m borrowing this idea from Susan, a friend of a friend who writes theskyislaughing, a blog mostly about her adopted daughter, Selam, but also about writing, cats, faith, and Diet Coke. On New Year’s Eve, she posted an interview with her daughter. Apparently, The Very Best Moms interview their children once a year. Some do it on their child’s birthday. Others do it at the turning of the year.
I need a post for tomorrow, so I’m going to do it now.
Right now, The Four-Year-Old is 4 years and ten months, weighs 40 pounds and is about 44 inches tall.

Great idea! I’ll have to do that soon. I enjoyed hearing her responses. Does she watch the Universe on Discovery? That is one of N’s favorites.
