Third Birthday Interview with Coo

I've enjoyed doing these interviews with my kids over the past year.  This is Coo's first ever interview!

Coo has the longest attention span of any of my children yet. She will easily sit for hours while someone reads aloud to her. Incredibly self-sufficient, she'll happily play on her own or simply jump on the trampoline while I work with the boys. She loves to draw, just like her buddy Mr J, and, completely of her own initiative, has chosen to learn to write, capable of copying out names I've written down. Her instant response to music is to dance, and she loves watching online short clips from ballets. She values spending time with people, and has a gift for connecting with others and drawing them into her life.  

Will you answer a few questions for me?

What are some of the things you want to do when you are big like Mummy?
I don't know [she picks up my almost-empty cup of black coffee and finishes it off]

Dancing, and jumping on the trampoline by myself

  1. A birthday interview is such great idea! When they are a Senior in high school you could have them all put into a book and give it to them. What a keepsake that would be!


Please don't hesitate to comment if this post has provoked your thoughts! I enjoy reading what you have to say.
