Insight into the Mind of a Five-Year-Old.

An Interview with Myles…

What is a pencil skirt?
I dunno.  Hmmm…  I don’t know what that is.  Is it something that pencils have on them?  Or is it something girls wear?
What is a noodle necklace?
A noodle necklace is a whole bunch of macaronis!
Who is in charge of our house?
Mommy and Daddy.  Nana when she is here just with me and Jillian, and Nannie and Opa, or anyone else that babysits.
What is mom’s job?
Your job is to tell me and Jillian what to play with me...and keep us good.
What do you wish Mommy would do differently?
I wish I could always do what I want.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
A fireman, policeman, doctor, and the owner of Michigan Tile. [Aim high, kid!]
Where will you go to college?
Michigan State.
Why are you going to go to college?
So I can find a girl to marry.
Describe the girl you think you will marry.
Hmm…I dunno.  I want her to have gold, long hair.  Maybe Lydia.  She likes Star Wars!  And... I love her.
Where are you going to live when you are older?
I think Chicago.  Because I’m going to have 100 kids.  Or maybe I’ll live in this house…
100 kids?  That’s a lot.  Why?
I want to ask Chicago to build a building for 100 kids and two grown-ups. 
What kind of car will you drive when you are older?
A Tornado.
What is a Tornado?
You know, like you drive.  (He means a Toyota.)
Because you drive a Camry...and it’s going to be blue just like yours.
Who is your best friend?
Mommy, Daddy, Wilson, and Jillian (except when she is screaming, then I don’t want her included in my interview).  That’s everyone.
What do you like about school?
Pretty much just playing.
What is the hardest thing you do at school?
The hardest…  Well..  Kind of I think… everything is easy at school.  Like only one thing which is doing all those papers.  That is really hard.  It’s so hard to get it all done.
What are you looking forward to in kindergarten?
Doing homework.  I’m going to play and learn there.
What do you think you will do for homework in high school?
High School…  I think I’ll have to write, write, and write a lot.
What are your talents?
My talent is math.  That’s my talent...playing baseball...playing the drums.
What is an interview?
An interview…something where people talk and someone asks you questions.  That is an interview.
What famous person would you like to meet?
Ummm...I think Bruce Wayne.  Batman.  Remember, Bruce Wayne is really just Batman.  Remember Mom?
What is Facebook?
Facebook.  I don’t even know what Facebook is.  I know that you can look at pictures on Facebook.
What is a blog?
A blog.  Like a block?  Like a blog entry?  I know what a blog entry is.  Well, a blog entry is something where you kinda look at pictures on the camera and take more pictures.  That’s all on that question.
What age are people considered mature?
Ummm.  Five.  Five years old.
Why are you mature?
Because I’m five.
What is your favorite thing about your sister?
Playing with her! 
What do you like to play with her?
Catch!  I like to play catch.  That’s all on that question.
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color is blue, green, orange, and yellow.  Those are all my favorite colors.
What is your favorite song?
Old MacDonald Had a Farm.
Who is the smartest person you know?
Me.  Because Nana says I’m smart.
What is your favorite memory?
What was your favorite Christmas present?
My favorite.  Ummm.  My Drumset.  Boom boom boom.  It’s so loud.
What is your worst memory?
I don’t’ remember any.  My worst memory is having to take off the ornaments off of our tree.
What is your favorite thing to do?
Play with my friends at school!!!

Alright mom, that’s the whole thing.  I’m tired of this interview.  Interviews are really hard.


  1. Tell him Piggie thinks he did an awesome job even if it was hard! :) Love you Myles!

  2. That is so so adorable! I hope you don't mind, but I am going to borrow your idea and ask both girls questions. I can't wait to hear their answers and to show them their answers as they grow! This is such a great idea!
    I keep a journal for each of them with things they have said. Today, leila (4) said "mommy, I'm beating you up." I said do you mean you are winning? "No, I'm beating you up!" I really like the interview idea! Not sure if I mentioned that ;-)

    1. Yes! Borrow away! It is lots of fun! I have one like this for Jillian too. I'm sure I will post it soon. :) I think they say the cutest things! Gotta love little ones!

  3. Wow! That was a great interview and he's smart. My youngest is also 5. We live too far away for them to meet. Visiting from SITS. I'm an American mom raising 4 kids in South Africa. My blog based on my youngest is at


Go ahead! Don't be shy...leave a comment! I would love to hear from you!
