Since it’s been 4 years, I thought it would be good to provide some updates on the girls. Kids change practically overnight it seems so you can imagine how much they’ve changed over the last few years! But instead of me writing paragraphs of my observations, I thought it would be more fun to just interview them so they could tell you about themselves in their own words! First up, Isabella, who is currently 8 years old and in 3rd grade. She has glasses, beautiful long blonde curly hair, was diagnosed with ADHD in kindergarten, is very literal, logical and thoughtful and she amazes me.
Q: What is your favorite food?
Apples. I don’t know why. I guess because they’re juicy.
Q: What is your favorite color?
Blue, then turquoise, green, purple, pink and so on and on and on until all the colors are used up.
Q: What do you like most about school?
Art on Wednesdays. Also, Wednesday is chicken nugget day which is my favorite. [Then she leaned in and whispered: they don’t really call it ‘chicken nugget day’, I just made that up.]
Q: What do you want people to know about you?
That I’m not a small person who doesn’t know anything. I can’t be beat up. Like Dad says, I have sharp elbows.
(This answer surprised me so I asked her if she was worried about being “beat up”. She said no. Then added that she is the smallest in her class and sometimes people think that means she’s doesn’t know things. “But I know a lot of things mom, I just don’t say them.”)
Q: What are your favorite things to do?
Draw and color. I like drawing silly pictures for people. Also monsters.
Q: Who is your favorite person?
Mrs. J and Jayden. I can’t decide which so don’t make me.
Q: What do you like most about Cora?
She’s funny. But sometimes I don’t get it. She can be weird too.
Q: If you could be anyone else in the world, who would you be?
A stuffed animal come to life because then you can be snuggled and loved but also talk to people and do things.
Q: What’s the biggest thing that’s changed about you since you were 4 years old [which is how old she was when I stopped blogging]
I talked weird then. (Then she said, “You don’t have to write this part down Mom but I would say things like “Big, Bigger, and Biggerer“. That’s so weird!”)
Q: Any final words that you want to share with Mommy’s friends?
I would want them to know that I have a space themed room. I like space stuff. Also, interviews are fun. I like them too.
Today Isabella brought home an activity from school for hitting 100 days. Thought I’d share some of her answers.
- I would not want 100…cats (the only reason is because my sister is allergic)
- If I had $100 I would buy….an animal shelter.
- I can lift 100…pieces of paper (make that 1000!)
- In 100 years I hope I can…still walk
- I can eat 100….chocolates (in one week)
- I could never eat 100….pieces of pizza
And there you have it. Isabella in her own words. And what amazing words they are!
