Interview With a Toddler

29 Aug

Potty Training Uniform

Me: “Jenna, can I ask you some questions?”

Jenna: (Makes eye contact and says seriously) “Yes.”

Me: “What is your favorite animal?”

Jenna: “Bob. And Puppy.” (Bob is a stuffed tiger cat named for her aunt & uncle’s (live) orange tiger cat.  Puppy is Bob’s stuffed friend).

Me: “Where is your favorite place to go?”

Jenna: “Um…..The Fahmer’s Mahket!”

Me: “What do you like to get at the Farmer’s Market?”

Jenna: “Fwoots and veggables.”

Me: “Do you like to eat fruits and vegetables?”

Jenna: “Nope.  You and Daddy do.”  (True)

Me: “What’s your favorite color?”

Jenna: “Ummm…..Bwoo” (Blue – and it really does seem to be)

Me: “What’s your favorite thing to do?”

Jenna: “Pway!” (Play) “……Wiff Mommy!”

Me: “What’s your favorite thing to do with Daddy?”

Jenna: “Umm…..Sing! Daddy sings funny!” (He makes up the most bizarre lyrics in the world)

Me: “What’s your favorite song?”

Jenna:  “I Been Workin’ on the Rayroad All the Live-Lawn Day” (This is actually how she often greets people on the phone: “Heh-wo? I been workin’ on the rayroad all the live-lawn day.”)

Me: “Do you want to sing it right now?”

Jenna: “Umm…No. The Itsy Itsy Pider”

{Take a break to sing song. She corrects and directs my hand motions.}

Me: “Jenna, can I ask you some more questions?”

Jenna: (Seriously) “Yes.”

Me: “What do you think Mommy was like when she was little like Jenna?”

Jenna: “Smaaaaalll like a baby.” (Demonstrates smallness with hands held very close together)

Me: “What do you think Daddy was like when he was little?”

Jenna: “He yiked food!” (I’m sure he did)

Me: “What makes Mommy grouchy?”

Jenna: “Umm…(scrunching of the eyebrows) When I poop on the floor. Not in the potty.” (Got that right!)

Me: “What makes Mommy happy?”

Jenna: “Hugs! And Kisses!” (Got that right too!)

Jenna: “Mommy…….? I yike kitties.”

Me: “You like kitties?”

Jenna: “Yes. But not puppies.”

Me: “You DON’T like puppies??” (This is a first)

Jenna: “No. They jump on me and yick my face. So I yike kitties.” (Just the other day we were on a walk when we met a friend walking his dogs, and one of them jumped on her and licked her face, and it scared her a little).

Me: “Do you have anything else you want to say?”

Jenna: “Nope. Can we pway (play) now?”
