Interview with Belly

I read about this interview idea on a friend's blog. (Thanks Lisa!) I thought it was great and would be fun for everyone. The idea is that you do it every year and see how much changes.

Ok, you ready to get started? (Redundant question since she has been asking when we are going to do this for the last two hours. She has set up an interview couch made out of dining room table chairs and all her best blankets for her to sit on. She has been sitting there waiting for me for ten minutes. Needless to say, she liked the idea.)

This is an interview of Isabel Kristine King. One of the most interesting and wonderful 5 year olds in the world.

I am going to ask you several questions about yourself so we can all get to know you better.

When I was 5, I saw Crystal Gale on Sesame Street and was DETERMINED that I would grow my hair out to the ground too. My mom convinced me to aim for the waist and then re-evaluate. It took til high school to even get it that long!
