Interview: Calista at 6
26 March 14
On our children’s birthdays, I interview them, asking them the same set of questions each year. This allows us to see how they’re changing and if they have interests that remain the same. I call these the Birthday Interviews. This is Calista’s fourth interview.
What are you going to be when you grow up?
Well, I don’t really know yet. I want to be a mother.
What’s that going to be like?
I don’t really know, I’ve never been a mother before. I’ll have to take care of my children, but I don’t really know what it’s going to be like.
What are your favourite toys?
Uni and Little Pink Unicorn
Who are your best friends?
Well, I don’t really have any.
What makes you happy?
Sucking my thumb.
What makes you sad?
Well, I don’t really get sad often, so I don’t really know.
When you dream at night, what do you dream about? Can you remember any of your dreams?
Well, anything! I don’t really dream about fairy tale things.
What do you like to do with Lauren?
I like to sit down on her lap and let her look in my hair.
What’s your favourite colour?
What’s your favourite book?
I don’t really have one. I don’t look at books much.
What does Lauren do during the day?
What do you do during the day, Lauren? (laughs) I don’t know what she does during the day!
What do you do during the day?
Well, I just play. I ask Lana to play a game and sometimes I play games with Lana during the day and sometimes I play games on my kipi during the day.
What do you want to learn or do or visit before you turn seven?
I know where I want to go — to the pool! I do actually want to go there!
