An Interview with my 3 year old

posted on: 5.07.2010

I can't remember where I saw this idea, but I thought it was a good one to get an idea for what's going on in that darling little blonde head of hers.
 So, I sat down and we talked- well I asked, and she answered.

i'm going to look on the computer, at my favorite website, and find couches on the computer.

What do you think I do when you're taking a nap?
go downstairs and do your hairclips 

I'm sure for most of you that was a bit more than you cared to know, but it was thoroughly entertaining for me to hear her responses! And I think in between some of those quirky, can't make sense of it answers, she's got quite a realistic grasp on things for a 3 year old. (i may be a tad biased:)

In fact earlier tonight, during one of my rants about the frustrations of this island and how on earth every single store could be out of bread and gasoline, Tate reminded me...
"mom, don't be annoyed or in a bad mood... just be happy for what you do have"
I guess I need to practice what I'm so emphatic about preaching.


  1. Haha! I laughed out loud at the "that's enough talking" part and the little burp. Gah, I want kids too so that I can be endlessly entertained by their antics.

    Oh and yes, I entered you in the "hard way" too because I saw your post...lucky you, huh? So if you'll make a decision about which one you'd like and send your address to this email

    that'd be great!


  2. Cutest thing ever. I can almost see her little wiggles and looking at her "big" feet as she answered. It must be so fun to know what she's thinking!

  3. she is so adorable. what a fun personality. And what a wonderful idea, I've got to do this with Lucy!

  4. i love that so much. we do that with our kids too...i may copy you and do a post about it.

  5. coolest 3 year old in the world. it's official! that was so entertaining. please do that every year for all of us to read! loved it!!

  6. I loved this, Chelsea! That was precious! I'm totally interviewing Henry and Ethan today and recording it in their Mom Journals. I'm sure the 6-year-old's responses won't be as funny as the 3-year-old's, but what a treasure they will be.

  7. not boring one bit! kids are hilarious and i love the interviewing idea. i can't get over tate in bados in that purple swimsuit....adorable!

  8. Oh my, this is hilarious! You are four, and daddy is five. Too cute.

  9. OK-I am dying at her comment about getting on the internet looking at couches. So true, that is what we do when get older.

  10. I found your blog through Elizabeth's blog and I LOVE it! Your daughter is hilarious.

  11. Hi there,
    I'm new to your blog :)

    That is adorable! I'm sure you will treasure that when she is older. I am definitely going to try this with my son next year!

  12. So so so cute and funny. I am going to steal your idea!

  13. Okay that was GREAT! I love the part where she discovers that her feet are really big. Totally still cracking up!

  14. I love it! I definitely need to do this with Londyn. It's amazing how much they just learn on their own. I love her answer to the question "What will you do when you are older?" Just like her cute mom!

  15. she is so freaking cute! I love her! call me again, I just got your message! I could read one of those interviews every week, Tate always says the best things! Love you all, hope Dominica is treating you well!

  16. such a cute post, and a cool checked outfit! The pictures of Barbados looked heavenly!!

  17. I love this! Such a good idea. Tate seriously is the cutest!!

  18. that was amazing! Loved every question especially the couches! HI-Larious! My mom did that to my sister when she was little. She asked her what she wanted to be when she got older. She said "A Mom". Then she asked her how many kids she wanted. She said "None". So my mom explained she would probably want kids if she wanted to be a mom. My sister quickly dropped her face and very seriously said "I DO NOT WANT TO BE A MOM WHEN I GROW UP!" We have it on video and it makes us laugh every time. You will not regret ever doing interviews with Tate! I just love here to death!! Thanks for posting that! I should be writing my talk for tomorrow, but I obviously think you blog is much better reading!

  19. this is so cute!

    its amazing how much they take in even when they are so wee!

  20. seriously, the greatest thing i have EVER read... this is something all mommies should do.

  21. this is absolutely CLASSIC!! i've been working with kids for a long time---and i live for this kind of stuff!! your daughter sounds pretty awesome :)

  22. That just made my morning! I love that little Tate of yours! Her answer to the park... still making me giggle! Give her a squeeze for me!

    I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day... you are one of the greatest! Thank you for your example to me Chels. I love you and miss you!

  23. she is so freakin cute! i can just picture her saying these things. i hope she stuttered through her answers too. seriously cannot get over this.

  24. You have a cute daughter

  25. So very very cute...I laughed a ton...hehehe.....and what a great way for her to get to know you better as well....:)
