This is Three... Olivia's Birthday Interview

I started doing birthday interviews with Jacob when he was four, but I decided to go ahead and interview Olivia for her third birthday since she could pretty much talk to a wall.  What can I say?  This girl has the gift of gab!

This is three...

1.    What is your favorite toy?  “Anna!”  (She has so many different ones, there’s really no way to even know which one she’s referring to.)
2.    What is your favorite stuffed animal?  “Elsa!”  (Yes, this past year she has slowly made the switch from loving Elsa either equally to or maybe slightly more than Anna.)
3.    What is your favorite game?  “Ummmm, matching game!”  (AKA dumping the matching game cards out on the floor and then promptly walking away from them.)
4.    What is your favorite sport?  “Ummmm… Belle!”  After I tell her what a sport is, she says, “FOOTBALL!!!!”  (This is a true statement.  Just recently she asked me when we were going to be able to watch Georgia on the TV again.  A girl after my own heart!)
5.    What is your favorite book?  “Ummm, Anna and Elsa!!” 
6.    What is your favorite TV show?  “Um, Anna and Elsa!”  (Hmm, I’m sensing a theme, here.)  Me: “Anna and Elsa isn’t a TV show, Olivia.”  Jacob chimes in: “Yes, it is!  What about Lego Frozen?”  (Touché, Jacob, touché.)
7.    What is your favorite movie?  “Marshmallow!”  (Soooo Frozen, then?!)
8.    What is your favorite song?  “Ummmm, Elsa’s song!”  Me: “Let it Go?”  Olivia: “MARY DID YOU KNOW!”
9.    What is your favorite band or singer?  “Um, Dacky.  Umm, Dacky.  Ummmm, Dacky.”  (So now we’re just going to get goofy, I suppose.)
10. What is your favorite holiday?  “Um, DACKY!”  Me: “Ok, enough of that…let’s be serious.”  Olivia: “Umm, Christmas!”
11. What is your favorite season?  “Dacky!”  Me: “Ok, I guess we need to take a break since you’re being too silly.”  I proceed to explain what a season is.  Olivia: “Ummmm… SUMMATIME!”  (Just like Will Smith.)
12. What is your favorite color?  “Um, pink!”  (No brainer.)
13. What is your favorite animal?  “Um, horsie!”
14. What is your favorite shirt?  “Um, Anna and Elsa!”  (Referring to her birthday shirt for her second birthday last year.)
15. What is your favorite fruit?  “Umm… grapes.”
16. What is your favorite vegetable?  “Umm… Play-doh!”  Me: “Play-Doh isn’t a vegetable.”  Olivia:  “Um, chalk?”  Me: “Also not a veggie.  Broccolli maybe?”  Olivia: “Um, yeah!”  (Obviously since it’s about the only one she actually eats.)
17. What is your favorite snack?  “Gummy bears!”  (We don’t let her have those for a snack… a potty reward, yes.  Snack?  No.)
18. What is your favorite treat?  “Gummy bears!”  (Acceptable.)
19. What is your favorite drink?  “Orange juice!”  Me: “Olivia, you don’t even drink orange juice.”  Olivia: “Milk!”
20. What is your favorite thing to eat for dinner?  “Um, sachi… pepper!  I like to eat chalk!”  Me: “So you don’t like to eat anything mommy cooks?”  Olivia: “Ummmm saushage.”  (Ok, that’ll do.)
21. What is your favorite restaurant?  “Chick-Fil-A!”  (Accurate.)
22. Who is your best friend?  “Um, Lucy!”  (Also accurate.)
23. What makes you feel happy?  “Um, Mommy!!!!”  (Awwww!)
24. What makes you feel sad?  “Um, Mommy!”  (What?!)
25. What are you afraid of?  “Um, thunder.”  (Unfortunately so, so accurate.)
26. What are you thankful for?  *Looks out the window*  “Um… trees!”  (What a great answer!  Even if you did just say the first thing that you saw after I asked the question.)
27. What are you really good at?  “Um, Anna and Elsa!”  *Jacob and Olivia both start laughing like crazy people.*  (Guess you need to be under three feet tall to get that joke.)
28. What is your best memory?  “Umm… Maui!”  (Our dog who’s still alive?  Odd.)
29. What do you want to be when you grow up?  “Ummmm, Olivia!”  (Best answer I’ve heard all interview!)
30. If you could have one wish, what would it be?  “Um, ears!”  Jacob chimes in: “Olivia, do you mean toy ears?”  Olivia: “Yeah.”  Jacob: “Oh, she means like Potato Head ears!”  (Aaaand Mr. Potato Head not even anywhere in sight.  Where do they come up with this stuff??)

  1. I am literally laughing out loud!
    I think it's sad to say she likes Frozen!!
    She is just precious! and a girl after my own heart- Chick-Fil-A and GA Football ;)

  2. Ha ha!! Her answers crack me up. Her love for Frozen is fierce, which is super fun. Every girl has a princess they love. I'm with her about Chick-Fil-A too.

  3. happy birthday sweet girl! These answers were great...what is it about Frozen that leaves everyone in a trance haha. I'm with her on CFA too..its my jam!

  4. This is so much fun!! I am going to have to do something like this with Annabelle!! :) And yay for football!!! We bleed green and white over here :)

  5. Somebody loooooves Frozen. :) Too cute! I'll have to remember to do this with Hadley when she turns four this year.

  6. Oh my gosh this had me cracking up!!! Avery is also a huge fan of dumping the matching cards out and then leaving the room, or she picks up 5 cards instead of 2 and the big kids get mad at her hahaha. Olivia still has such a love for Frozen, that's so cute! You gotta get that girl to Disney! :)

  7. She is SO precious! All of the Um's and Anna and Elsa's. Love it. I hope she has the best birthday ever!

  8. I just love this so much! She sounds like such a hoot!

  9. Ah, that smile! Love how both Olivia and Jacob were in on the interview together. They take care of each other, so sweet. I'm excited to hear all about the big day! Happy Birthday sweet girl.

  10. Oh she is one Frozen obsessed little girl!! Does she really love sausage? Mila does too and that blows my mind. I feel like a lot of kids I see don't really eat that. (Oddly enough, this is what we're having for dinner tonight, haha.) LOVE that she said she wants to be Olivia when she grows up. She is too cute!

  11. Haha. I love reading these answers. So cute.

  12. You know, she gets some of that from her Pop... trees, horses, Chick-Fil-A... Dacky, not so much. Great interview. Love her!

  13. What a cutie!! Matching games are more like 52 card pick up at our house, too! Such a mess, but they love them. I love that she looked around to come up with answers and that she has inside jokes with her brother. What a sweet way to capture this age!

  14. She is so precious! I love birthday questions because the kids answers are always off the wall. I hope Olivia has a wonderful birthday!

  15. That was so cute. I laughed so much! Happy Birthday!

  16. Oh how precious is she!! I didn't realize she was right in between my little guys ages. Haha, Summatime like will smith! She sure is a Frozen fan :)

  17. LOL! This was too funny! Can't wait to see her party!
