Liam, what do you want to be when you grow up?
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.]
"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.]
What’s your favorite thing to do with your daddy?
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?
What’s your favorite thing to do outside?
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?]
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....
