Interview With a Princess

Ok, well not a REAL Princess...but MY Princess. During my "interview" blog post a few weeks back, The BlogStalker recommended getting to know the "kiddos" that's what I've decided to do: Introduce you to the Off-Spring. We will start from the bottom up, age-wise that is. So, today, I introduce you to PrettyPrettyPrincess.
Age: 8 1/2 Grade: 3rd

Me: What is your favorite color and why?
PrettyPrettyPrincess: Red. Cuz it reminds me of strawberries, cherries, apples, and what-not. (yes...she said "what-not" is one of her "isms")

Me: What is your FAVORITE DINNER your B-E-A-U-Tiful Mother makes for you?
PPP: Pretty much anything. I like your Pot Roast, Pancit, Company Chicken, and Tostadas.

Me: If I were your short-order cook, what would you want me to make for you right now?
PPP: Gingerbread cookies.

Me: I don't make gingerbread cookies. Anything else?
PPP: All right then, how about Pumpkin cookies?

Me: How about pumpkin bars?
PPP: Oooooh.....that WOULD be better.

Me: Who's your favorite singer/musical artist?
PPP: The Jonas Brothers, A Ca Pella, John Mayer, James Taylor, and Hannah Montana

Me: So, which Jonas Brother is the cutest?
PPP: Nick!

Me: So, you LOVE him???
PPP: [giggles]...[pause]...No.

Me: What is your favorite holiday?
PPP: I'd have to say in order Christmas, Halloween, and the 4th of July.

Me: What is something I do that you HATE?
PPP: Take me with you when you go "you-know-what" shopping.

Me: What? Bra-shopping?
PPP: Yeah-yeah-yeah. Fine. Please don't say that again.

Me: What is something I do that you LOVE?
PPP: Cook! Also, you play the piano. I like it when you play and we sing together.

Me: What's your take on Global Warming?
PPP: What does that mean?
Me: Nevermind...Tell us some of your talents, hobbies, or interests.
PPP: I like playing piano and drums. I like jump roping and hula-hooping. I like making Abstract Art. And I like writing poems, about things that happen to me, and sometimes fiction.

Me: Do you think Jump Roping and/or Hula-Hooping should be an Olympic sport? PPP: I think that Jump Roping should, because you can do lots of tricks.

Me: What are your favorite books?
PPP: The Missing Piece/The Missing Piece Meets the Big-O. But I also LOVE the "Bailey School Kids" books and the "Fablehaven" series.

Me: How do you feel about being the youngest child in the family?
PPP: Umm...I DO hate it when the boys boss me around, like [LittleDuckling] for example. But I DO like it cuz I don't have as many chores.

Me: How do you like being the only girl?
PPP: Umm...not really liking it, cuz the boys don't really play with me, and they make fun of my girly toys.

Me: What do you want to be when you grow up?
PPP: A Pediatric Nurse.

Me: Why Pediatric?
PPP: Cuz I feel bad for little kids when they are sick. And if it is something really serious, I don't want them to die; they are just little kids.

Me: What job would you want your future husband to have?
PPP: hmmm...I'd say a Chiropractor. Cuz, if my back hurts, he can crack it.

Me: If you could be a flower, which kind would you be?
PPP: A Yellow Tulip. Cuz they are pretty and yellow makes me happy cuz it reminds me of the sunshine.

Me: What do you think about your dear old mom blogging?
PPP: I like your blogs cuz they are funny. But some of the posts I HATE - like when you talk about BRAS!!! Wait - how many blogs do you have?
Me: Three. But I'm asking the questions here.
PPP: Whatever.

Me: What do you like about school so far this year?
PPP: Each table has their own fish tank. We have our own fish and snails in it. Currently we have 4 snails and three fish. We named their environment "The Tropical Under Sea World".
Me: How do you like being in a different school this year and in the Spectrum Program?
PPP: I like it cuz now I have NEW friends. But the playground is small. My new school is more challenging, and I like the challenging parts. But I do miss my friends from my old school.

Me: What do you think about your mom's friends?
PPP: You like to talk a lot with them. Like when you say you're gonna "stop by" to just drop something off. Then you end up like taking 2 hours, cuz you talk!

Me: If you could change one thing about your life, what would it be?
PPP: I wish I could have a sister.

Me: Well, that about sums it up. Anything else you think we should know about you?
PPP: I would love to have a teacup dog. (hint hint)


Mrs. S said...

I want a teacup dog too. Do they stay that small bc I might be able to talk Big A into one that STAYS that small (and doesn't yip preferably).

No word on the move yet. We know we get the 3rd interview but it's just a matter of WHEN. They can't seem to get everyone that needs to be there, there at the same time. So we'll see. thank you so much for asking though. :) sometimes I wonder if I just talk...

Jennifer Rae said...

Seriously...that was the best interview I have ever read...LOL

Amy said...

I love it! I bet her and Sydne would be great friends! She sounds like such a sweet girl!!!

RhondaLue said...

She sounds on the way smart side too. My 7 yr old doesn't say "what not" (too cute!) but he does say things like, "My objective is to find Tyler." when we got to a school event and he wants to find his best friend. These smarty pants kids crack me UP!

Great interview and I think the part about her not liking to go bra shopping is HILARIOUS!

Susie said...

Great interview! It was great to get to know a real live princess:-) Hee, hee, hee.

purplehaze said...

That was really sweet!!

Mrs. S said...

Ok so I just wanted you to know (since you asked) that we've finally got a date scheduled for our 3rd interview for our job. I'm so psyched!

Ruthykins said...

that was great! please interview the boys as soon as possible! can't wait to read this to derek!

Willeyes said...

Boy, talk like her mother much:) She seriously is so much like you. So cute...can't wait for the boys "interviews"
How's the grounding going by the way?

greenolive said...

I think she'll enjoy being the only girl when she's older and nobody is stealing her clothes and shoes from the closet.

RhondaLue said...

p.s. I hated being the only girl and not having any girl cousins close in age or proximity growing up. That stunk.

But yeah for no cat fights and no clothes-stealing! No competition either, I was my daddy's one and only girl..well, till I had my own princess and by then I was glad to share the title.

Gombojav Tribe said...


Did we surprise you?! :-)

Daja, from BATW

btw, GREAT interview!

The Farmer Files said...

Much aloha from Hawaii! Loved the part about "shopping for you know what." LOL!

MelADramatic Mommy said...

Congrats on being a BATW layover. Very cute interview!

oº˚ Queen Bee ˚ºo said...

I can't wait to get my maltese, Next summer. Stopping in from BATW to say hi! Love your layout -- Much Love


Frizzy and Bird said...

Here from BATW! SURPRISE! Enjoyed getting to know your little one. Can't wait to hear what my daughter's thoughts are some day. She's only 2 now and already has quite the opinion. She just can't always verbalize it.

Teaching Diligently said...

Hey there! I'm Tiffany from TX & I'm visiting from BATW. What a great personality your little princess has! She is adorable. Thank you so much for sharing her interview!

Julie said...

what a fun interview!

Michelle said...

Awww... how sweet. Although I hate to break it to Mrs. S but ummm those teacup dogs DO yip. We had them growing up.

Very cute interview, and I love how she "you know what's" certain things. I do have to ask though... what is Pancit?

HeathahLee said...

Hopped over here from have given me a great idea for my post about my Kiddo. I was wondering what to blog about when his turn in the "spotlight" came!

I loved your interview with your daughter! She sounds so adorable! Adorable with just the right amount of attitude..."..cuz you talk!" : )

okeydokeyifine said...

Am I the only one bothered by Jump Roping....It should be Jumping Rope. Go figure... Maybe I will ask if they children are being have? hahahaha

Ronnica said...

I always love the interviews of the children. I love how you tried to sneak in the question about global warming. Haha!

Lady Dorothy said...

Great interview! And I agree with the Princess -- a teacup dog would be so fun! Especially one that looks just like that picture!

Visiting you from CA and BATW!

Aubrey said...

That is the cutest interview ever! Her bra comments cracked me up!
