A Serious Interview for a Silly Boy

BooMama recently interviewed her 5 year old. It sounded like a fun excuse to play 20 Questions with my own 5 year old, so here goes:

Liam, what do you want to be when you grow up?
“A Daddy.”

No, I mean, what kind of job do you want to have?
“A baseball coach. For the Aggies.”

Where do you want to go to college?
“A&M.” [Insert the tone that tells me I just asked a stupid question.]

Where will you live after college?
“With the Aggie team.”

When do you think you'll get married?
“30.” [This answer deeply satisfied my soul.]

What kind of girl will you marry?
"Her name is gonna be 'Ami'. She's gonna live with me in College Station. A brown girl." [Incidentally, we don't know of another 'Ami', so I am yet again deeply satisfied.]

What’s your favorite place in the whole wide world?
“Pizza Garden!” [I really tried to not roll my eyes at his choice of the pizza buffet joint.]

Besides that?
“The zoo."

What’s your favorite thing to do with your daddy?
“Read books.”

What about with me?
“Play toys. Like Chutes and Ladders.” [Once again, I had to fight the urge of rolling my eyes. That game will be the death of me.]

What are your favorite books?
The Crab. Bob.”

What are your favorite toys inside the house?
“Foosball.”

What’s your favorite thing to do outside?
“Baseball. Football.”

What’s your favorite song?
“A Hard Day's Night. Bulldog.” [Both by the Beatles, of course.]

What are your favorite movies?
“Lightning McQueen. Balto.”

What is your favorite game?
“Chutes and Ladders, silly.” [That game really will be the death of me. Do you think he would miss it if I 'misplaced' it?]

Do you know why we help Brian in Uganda [with Compassion]?
“Get him food. Maybe some toys. Like $100 for a toy.” [I reminded him that we pay for Brian to attend school and to buy food.] "Oh."

What do you know about God?
“He loves us. He takes care of us.”

What do you think about kindergarten so far?
“I love school very, very much. I like to be a kindergarten boy. I like to work with Mommy."

Ahh! The innocence of a 5 year old.

In a nutshell, he wants to marry a "brown" version of me, coach the Aggies baseball team, and in his spare time, take me to eat Pizza Garden and play Chutes and Ladders. Well, as long as I'm at the top of his list of loves, I'll take the buffet pizza. But I need to introduce him to some different games.

Stay tuned for Jack and Garrett's personal interviews....
