New Year, New Interview

My firstborn turns (6!!) today and in preparation, we have completed our annual interview. Each year I am amazed at the answers that change and intrigued by the ones that seem to stay the same (here's the one we did three years ago when she turned 3:

Happy Birthday, Chaya! We love you so so so so so so much! (Did you count the so's? I'm cool like that.)


What is the meaning of life? Does it mean what's about your life? About my life is that people don't say mean stuff to me and everybody loves me and plays with me, because I'm a nice girl to play with. (Self esteem? Check.)

What do you want to be when you grow up? I want to be a Mommy who has a lot of money. But I don't know how to make money. Ma, how do you make money? You stand outside with a cup of tzedaka? (Oh my gosh, I am laughing with tears now!)

What makes you happy? I have a hundred, million, thousand stuff to say! How much should I answer? I'll tell you one thing. One thing is by swings, when we go on the swings, when Morah picks me first to go, it makes me a little excited and happy. (Yes! Always have a hundred, million, thousand many happy stuff!)

What would you buy if you had a lot of money? I would buy a crib for my baby. (To clarify, she means her baby doll. I think.)

What are you afraid of? Afraid? Hmmm. I'm scared of lions roaring. (Truth.)

What's a funny/silly word? Bakadakaka. (Kay.)

What's the best thing in the world? The best thing in the world is when I go on trips with Mommy and I have vacations. (She works hard, deserves vacations.)

What's the worst thing in the world? The worst thing in the world is when my Mommy says No or Wait. (Don't I know it!)

What makes you angry? Angry? When I'm angry is when my Morah says something and my friends are all talking and I don't hear. I'm angry but I still don't show them because then that would make noise.  (#angel.)

What makes you sad? Sad? When people bite me. (Who bites her??)

What's your favorite toy? My favorite toy is mentchies with doll houses, and coloring. (I can handle that.)

Who do you love? Who do I love? Hmmmm. I love Mushka. Because she's a cutie pie. (I swear other years she said Mommy and Tatty!)

What is the hardest thing to do? The hardest thing is to listen to Mommy. (Respect.)

What's the easiest thing to do? The easiest thing is when on Sunday I have a lot of time to color. That's for sure the easiest thing. (Like I said, she works hard.)

What is the meaning of love? Oh. Love. When Mommy and Tatty take care of me and I get the same much attention as Rivka. (Oh, sweetie. Thank you for not #hashtagging for attention. Really, truly, THANK YOU.)
