The Mind of a Four Year Old

I recently sat down with Preston and asked him the following questions. His answers were honest and unsolicited, which translates into not entirely accurate and somewhat embarrassing. Join me as we delve into the mind of a four year old.

1. What is something mommy always says to you?

Get in time out. (Hey now, I maybe said it once in the last week, sheesh!)

2. What makes mommy happy?

Doing something good.

3. What makes mommy sad?

I do something really, really sad for you. It really upset you.

4. How does your mommy make you laugh?

Like tickling me.

5. What was your mommy like as a child?

You liked to play blocks and marbles when you were five.

6. How old is your mommy?

I don’t know. 17? (Wow, thank you for that!)

7. How tall is your mommy?

I have to count. [counting out loud] 18! (18 what we're not sure, but I'll take it!)

8. What is mommy's favorite thing to do?

Play blocks and marbles and play wii, any kind of stuff you want. And I really love you so much. (Can you tell what he'd rather be doing right now?)

Work, any kind of work you want.

10. If your mommy becomes famous, what will it be for?

Playing blocks and marbles.

12. What is your mommy not very good at?

Not very good at building blocks and marbles. (Apparently he changed his mind about me being famous for that)

You work on the computer. Actually help me put the jars away, all the cans in the recycling bin and I put all the paper away too with you.

14. What is your mommy's favorite food?


15. What makes you proud of your mommy?

Doing something cool for me.

16. If your mommy were a cartoon character, who would she be?

Miss Piggy. (Ok, technically not a cartoon character, but it is still the coolest answer ever!)

You can play with wii with me all the time you want to.

18. How are you and your mommy the same?

Because we we both have two eyes and one nose and one mouth.

Our shirts are different.

Because you like me so much.

21. What does your mommy like most about your daddy?

You love him so much because everybody is a family.

The mall.

Thanks to Phillip's cousin Melissa for the idea.

Miss Piggy is a pretty cool chick, although I am sure you are not as high-maintenance as her! :)
