Interviewing the Birthday Girl (5)

Are we here already? Such big changes in Emily this last year, and especially, funnily enough, over the last month. She has matured, developed a more sophisticated sense of humour, learnt how to roll her eyes at things (and people and situations), begun to have consideration for other people’s feelings, become more understanding and responsible, and I adore the conversations I can now have with her. The more I learn about her, the more I see myself in her, the more I understand her, the more I love her.

Emily birthdays

I asked her the same set of birthday questions that I had asked her last year and the year before, and here is how that went this year:

What is your name?
Emily

 

How old are you?
Five

 

What is your favourite thing to do?
Colouring and singing

 

What do you want to be when you grow up?
Just a Mummy

 

What is your favourite food?
Macaroni and cheese

 

Who do you like to spend time with?
Matteo, Maya and Olivia

 

What do you do really well?
[Lots of thought] Music class and French class…
and Read Write Inc… and Ballet and Street Jazz.

Somebody tickling me

 

What is the best time of the day?
Playing with Matteo at school

 

What are you afraid of?
Dragons, lions, tigers and beasties

 

Who is your best friend?
Matteo, Olivia, Maya, Emilia, Oscar and Hannah

It makes me laugh the way some of her answers are almost identical to last year’s, and you can see what a Social Butterfly she’s turning into. And in case you wondered, Matteo is her boyfriend of a more than a year and the person she’s going to marry and have twins with. Apparently.
