Inside Scoop

2202885_5444d254f8Some people are born to do something, while others may follow in the footsteps of their parents.  Some people are fortunate enough to have some sort of talent that provides them a catalyst to their future.  Then there are the lucky ones that have a passion for something that drives them from birth.  You know the ones I am talking about, the one in kindergarten that knew he wanted to be a doctor; or like a classmate I had, a male stripper.  I did not fit any of these molds.  Sure, I had some musical talent, but not without too much effort as far as I was concerned.  My parents did not really have profession to pass on to me, and I am still looking for my one true passion.

When I was a kid though, I loved to snoop.  Not only did I love trying to read my sister's diary; I loved to interview people.  I had a little tape recorder that I carried with me everywhere.  I would imitate Howard Cosell and berate my family and friends with questions.  Don't get me wrong, I am still nosey; but I wonder what would have happened if that had been nurtured as a child?

Anyway, in my attempt to get some scoop; I asked my four year old some questions about his mommy.  This is what I found out:

  1. What is something mommy always says to you? I love you

  2. What makes mommy happy? Hugs

  3. What makes mommy sad? Kicking

  4. How does your mom make you laugh? She smiles

  5. What was your mom like as a child? She played with toys

  6. How old is your mom? 15

  7. How tall is your mom? 40 feet tall

  8. What is her favorite thing to do? Play with toys

  9. What does your mom do when you're not around? Go outside

  10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for? A Rock star

  11. What is your mom really good at? Going to work and bring me food

  12. What is your mom not very good at? Remembering her wallet (not sure what this is about)

  13. What does your mom do for her job? Play with toys (gadgets maybe)

  14. What's your mom's favorite food? Pizza (that is his favorite food)

  15. What makes you proud of your mom? How she hangs pictures (we just hung some new pictures before the interview)

  16. If your mom were a cartoon character, who would she be? Wonder Woman (no kidding!)

Thank you for posting this. Not only did it bring back delightful memories from when my son was just a little tyke, but I related to your "I don't know what I want to be when I grow up" sentiment in other parts of the blog post. Boy Howdy is that ever me.

Your Myers-Briggs personality type wouldn't, by any chance, be ENFP, would it?
