I try to interview Grace from time to time to record some of the things that are important to her at different ages. Here is what she told me last night.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A rock star.
A rock star? Why?
Because you can sing and dance and take pictures like Justin Bieber.
Justin Bieber? You know Justin Bieber?
Yeah, mom. I know Katy Perry, too. And Taylor Swift.
Who is your favorite friend at Fishcreek and at Kindercare.
Carson at Fishcreek and Noah Young at Kindercare.
They are both boys.
I don't care. They're cool. Can they come to our house for a playdate?
What do you like about school?
I like to learn math?
Why do you like math?
I don't know, but I am good at it.
What else are you good at?
Hmmmm.....maybe....doing cartwheels? and riding my bike.
Riding your bike. Didn't you just crash the other day?
Yeah. That was bad. I was going fast.
What are you not so good at that you want to do better?
Putting my toys away? But I don't really care about that. You do.
What rule of our house is a good one?
What do you mean?
You know. What rule do we have that is good? That you like.
Stop, drop, and roll.
Ha! Yeah, that is a good one to have.
If you were president, what rule would you make for everyone?
Don't pee in your pants.
