Me: Alright Berlyn, are you ready for your interview?

Berlyn: What’s an interview?

Me: I’m just going to ask you a bunch of questions.

B: Why?

Me: Because I think you’re interesting.

B: Oh, okay.

Me: What’s your favorite thing to wear?

B: Sparkle heart dress.

Me: Why?

B: Because it’s sparkly, and I like sparkles.

Me: What do you think is beyond the stars?

B: The moon, and the planets, and I don’t know.

Me: Do you remember your dreams?

B: I don’t dream anymore.

Me: Oh.

Moving on…

What is the most beautiful place you’ve ever seen?

B: If we went to a butterfly garden and there is butterflies everywhere.

Me: What about when we went to the Redwood Forest?

B: It wasn’t very beautiful.

Me: *Blink, blink*

B: *Shrug*

Me: *Squinty eyes*

B: *Shrug*

Me: What is the grossest thing you can think of?

B: Worms! Worms in trash can.

Me: That’s pretty nasty.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

B: A mommy and adopt babies.

Me: How many babies do you want to have.

B: Three.

Me: Why three?

B: I have to find someone who has three babies that they don’t want anymore and adopt them.

Me: Okaaay, you still didn’t answer my question, but whatves, what would you do if you were invisible for a day?

B: Go on rides at Disneyland

Me: Do you think any of our neighbors are scary?

B: No.

Me: None of them, not even that creeper on the corner?

B: No.

Me: Okay, well, you just stay away from them as a precaution. You got that. Even if they say they have a bounce house and cheese crackers in their backyard.

B: Alriiiight.

Me: If you could change your name, would would you change it to?

B: My brother’s name. Because I like that name. I would be called Hudson.

Adorable. I did this with Mea not too long ago. I decided I will do it every year around the same time to see how her answers vary. Her answers about Momma vs. Daddy were pretty hilarious too.
