Olive was away for my birthday this year, so before she left, my sister, Lizzie, had her answer a few questions about her soon-to-be-32-year-old mom. Lizzie [AKA Aunt Loulie] noted that she conducted the entire interview while Olive was jumping on her bed. (That’s pretty standard though, yes?)
Behold, in its glory. A peek into the mind of my three-year-old as it pertains to her mother.
Q: What is your mummy’s favourite food?
A: Uhhh…I think salad?
Q: What do you love best about your mummy?
A:I really like hugging her actually… I said HUGGING!
Q: What is your mummy’s job?
A: She just writes. [I am in love with the wording of this. I imagine she said it with a resigned sigh. “Hhhhhh. She just WRITES. Laura’s mom is a DOCTOR, but mine just writes.”]
Q: What is your favourite food?
A: My favourite food is sushi, I love sushi and bacon and chicken and scrambled eggs and lollipops.
Q: Do you think your mummy is funny?
A: Yes, she makes good jokes! [She’s not wrong. Especially since knock-knock jokes are the best around these parts lately.]
Q: Who is funnier, you or your mummy?
A: Me! [also accurate]
Q: Who is a better cook, Aunt Loulie or your mummy?
A: I think Aunt Loulie is the best cook. [TREASON! At such a young age! I’m heartbroken. Cold canned soup until morale improves.]
Q: What is your mummy the best at?
A: Writing actually, and taking care of me. [Heavy sobbing. She sees me! She knows me like no other! All is forgiven, sweet child! Tonight we feast on homemade macaroni and cheese!]
Q: What do you want to say to your mummy on her birthday?
A: That I love her! A LOT! [unintelligible weeping]
