Interview with Maddie

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? This is an interview of Madeline Aisalee King. One of the most interesting and wonderful 4 year olds in the world. I am going to ask you several questions about yourself so we can all get to know you better. Okay, let's get started.

What is your name?

My name is.....What's this button for?......Princess King.

No, what is your real name.

I can't remember my real middle name. How about I just do Madeline King?

Ok, that's fine. How old are you?


Where do you live?

Hmmm, in Germany. And Czech Republic. Is there a video in there? Can I push these buttons?

Do you have any pets?

No. (And she gives me a look that says "Duh! OF COURSE not!")

Who do you like to play with?

Hannah and Reagan.

Anybody else? What about Isabel and Jacob?


What is your favorite Cereal?

Hmmm. Got it. The cereal with chocolate in it. When I'm done, when I'm doing really well, what do I get? (Meaning, do I get some sort of reward for doing this stupid thing with you?)

What is your favorite vegetable?

Hmm. (Shrug) Apple.

Apple is a fruit. Can you think of any vegetables?

Hmmm. Ha! What vegetables are not spicy and not hot and do not need to be cooked? Peas and tomatoes.

What is your favorite drink?

Hmm. Cool aid!

What is your favorite snack?

Ah! Crackers! Cheese!! Ham!!! (Said with increasing excitement, and possible expectancy of previous said reward)

What is your favorite toy?

Ah! Butterfly! My American girl doll. (Actually, we just told her it was an American girl doll but isn't in fact a real American girl doll. She means it is a doll that is not a baby doll, but a big girl doll.)

What is your favorite book?

It is, um.....(Shrug). Hmmm. Backyardigans. (We do in fact have a Backyardigans book. But she loves the TV show as well.)

What is your favorite restaurant?

Quesadilla restaurant. Why is that doing that?

I don't know. Wait! Come back. We are almost done. Do we need an intermission?

What is that?

It's like at the ballet where we stopped in the middle so we could get a snack.

Yes. I am going to have a drink. (As she walks away into the kitchen.)

Ok, ready to get started again?

Yeah. (Warily) I'm going to save some water in case I'm thirsty again.

What is your favorite holiday?

Ah! Ballerina holiday. When we go to the ballerina day. Oh! Easter! Easter!! Easter!!!

Why do you like Easter so much?

Cause we get to find eggs and crack what is inside them. And we get to have pumpkins.

Not pumpkins, not at Easter.

When do you have pumpkins?

In the fall. At Halloween and Thanksgiving.

Um, I love Halloween too. I don't like Thanksgiving so much. Am I done now?

What is your favorite animal?

Kitty and dog and horse.

If you could change your name to anything, what would you change it to?

Cupcake and butterfly and birthday. Ok. I'll just go and then drink and come right back.

What do you love about your Dad?

Wrestling! And playing games with him too. Now can I go?

What do you love about your Mom?

Um, Birthday! When she gives me a birthday. (What a wonderful answer I must say. On so many different levels!)

Where would you like to go on vacation this year?

Aha! Ballerina place!

What is your number one wish for this year?

I wish to have a butterfly.

What is your favorite TV show?

Animal show. (Said quickly and without any thought. She is definitely trying to get rid of me now.) I'm going now. Oh, do I get something now? What do I get? Something special?

Thank you for your interview Ms Madeline King. I appreciate your time. (Said to her retreating back as she runs off to engage in some more wrestling with her dear old dad.)
