This is Six… Olivia’s Birthday Interview

One of my New Year’s Goals was to start combining the kids’ birthday letter and interview into one post, but I didn’t like the way it looked when I got it all put together so I just decided to continue doing the birthday posts the same way I’ve been doing them all these years.  If you missed her birthday letter you can see it here and today it’s all about her birthday interview!      

I interviewed her this past weekend and this is what she came up with for her sixth!  As always, my commentary is in parentheses.

1.      What is your favorite toy?  “Um, Frozen 2 dolls… and Hatchimals.”
2.      What is your favorite stuffed animal?  “SHEEEEPIE!  You know that, right?”  (Yes, yes I do.)
3.      What is your favorite game?  “Um, this is a hard one.  Hmmmm.  That game where you play with those pretend cupcakes.”  Me: “Your cupcake princess game?”  Olivia: “Mmhmmmm.”
4.      What is your favorite sport?  “Hmm this is a hard one, OH, BALLET!”
5.      What is your favorite book?  “Oh, this one is a hard one. Hmmmm… Little Acorn, NO, I am a Bunny!!”  (She has been obsessed with I am a Bunny lately.)
6.      What is your favorite TV show?  “Um, Masha and the Bear.  I mean Frozen.  Frozen 2.  Sorry about that.”  (Why does she always sound like such an adult?  LOL.)  Me: “Frozen 2 is a movie.”  Olivia: “I guess Masha and the Bear.”
7.      What is your favorite movie?  “Ohhhh, Frozen 2.  Haaaa haaaa.”
8.      What is your favorite song?  “Frozen 2 soundtrack.”  (I’m sensing a theme here.) 
9.      What is your favorite band or singer?  “Oh my gosh.  The person who sings Where the North Winds Meet the Seas.  Do you know her?”  Me: *googles*  “That is Evan Rachel Wood.” 
10. What is your favorite holiday?  “Chriiiistmaaaassss.  Because I get toys.  And because Jesus was born.  That’s the most goodest holiday ever.  Yeah, it is!  Because Jesus was born.  And Lent is probably the second most holiday because that’s when Jesus rose from the dead.”  (Oh my gosh, this girl.  Lol.)
11. What is your favorite season?  “Uhhhh winter?”
12. What is your favorite color?  “Pink.  Ha.  That’s easy.”
13. What is your favorite animal?  “Unicorn!”
14. What is your favorite shirt?  “Ummmm.  When I was little, the Belle one for when I was turning three.”  (Wouldn’t have guessed that.  She never seemed attached to it and honestly didn’t even wear it that much aside from her birthday that year.)
15. What is your favorite fruit?  “Um, raspberries.”  (Truth.  Literally the only fruit she will eat now for two years running.)
16. What is your favorite vegetable?  “Uh, ooooh, broccoli.”  (Truth.  She eats bigger servings of it than I do now!  And it’s pretty much the only vegetable she’ll eat.  She does love okra, too, though.)
17. What is your favorite snack?  “Fruit snacks… which I just ate some.”  (So true.  Our kids would turn into a fruit snack if they could.)
18. What is your favorite treat?  “Bubblegum!”  (This is actually true for the second year running.  Girlfriend loves her some gum.)
19. What is your favorite drink?  “Waterrrr!”  (Just so y’all know she is answering all of these questions like she thinks I’m an idiot for even asking.  Haha.)
20. What is your favorite thing to eat for dinner?  “Ughhhh.”  *makes a face like she’s appalled by the thought of dinner food* (Which is probably true… she and Jacob rarely get excited about anything that anybody cooks, myself included.)  “PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY!!  Sometimes I do have that for dinner…”
21. What is your favorite restaurant?  “Ummmm nothing.”  Me: “Nothing?!”  Olivia: “Are you going to type nothing??”  Me: *keeps typing*  Olivia: “WHAT ARE YOU TYPING?!”  Me: *keeps typing*  Olivia: “A restaurant that has peanut butter and jelly.”  Me: “What about Mexican??”  Olivia: *nods head in agreement*
22. Who is your best friend?  “Rebecca, Aubrey, and Becca.”  (I was wondering what she would say for this one.  Her best friend, Becca, moved away a few months ago so I wasn’t sure if she’d remember to include her.  I’m so glad she did!)
23. What makes you feel happy?  “Hmmmm… I don’t know.  Are you typing I don’t know?”  Me: “Yes!”  Olivia: “AAAAHHHH.”  Me: “So what makes you happy?”  Olivia: “Maui and Daddy and Jacob and you.” 
24. What makes you feel sad?  “When Jesus died on the cross.”  (Y’all!)
25. What are you afraid of?  “Um, being by myself… and monsters… and dreams about bad things.”  Me: “I never knew that you were afraid of being by yourself.”  Olivia: “Well I am.”  *matter-of-factly*  (She’s always been super independent when it comes to doing things for herself, but she is definitely a people person and loves to be with someone at all times… like, all up on at least one of us at all times when we’re at home.  I never knew she was afraid to be alone, though.)
26. What are you thankful for?  “Uh, you, Daddy, Jacob, Maui, and all my grandparents.  And God, too.  And Jesus.” 
27. What are you really good at?  “Running.”  Me: “Anything else?”  Olivia: “Doing gifts for my family.”  (That could not be more true!  She is constantly making things for us and for all of her friends!)
28. What is your best memory?  “When I was a baby that Jacob holded me.  Cuz he really did hold me.  See in that picture?”  *points to the picture of Jacob holding her on my bulletin board*  Me: “What’s your best memory that you remember on your own without looking at a picture?”  Olivia: “Going to Disney World for 8 days!”  (We didn’t go for 8 days the last time, but you get the point.  Haha.)
29. What do you want to be when you grow up?  “Uhhhh, Elsa and a ballerina.”  (For two years running!)
30. If you could have one wish, what would it be?  “To be a fairy and fly!”  (Sounds about right!!)
