Interviewing Your Child: A great way to capture moments in time


Life goes by fast with kids. One minute they are teeny tiny humans that sleep 20 hours a day, the next they are walking, talking little extensions of you. Lately, my two and half year old makes me laugh and when she is not making me laugh, she is melting my heart. I want to remember these moments, because they go by so quickly. I decided to put together a little interview in attempt to freeze this moment in time. Here’s how our talk went.





What do you want to be when you grow up?

Sophie: A swan

Why do you want to be a swan?

Sophie: Because Sophia the first likes swans and they are kind of like birds and I like birds. Uncle Stefan likes swans, too.

What is something mommy always says to you?

Sophie: I love you, Sophia Grey Sabich

Sophie: He works on his computer and then he goes to work.

Sophie: I’m really good at counting

Sophie: Umm, to draw.

We had such a great talk! This such a fun way to interact with your kids and document a conversation in time.
