A couple of people have already posted interviews with their children. In honor of upcoming Valentine's Day, here are some questions I asked Finn and Calvin on L-O-V-E.

Starting with my eldest.
Before jumping into the whole "what is love thing?", we began with some basic questions.

Q. What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. A cook in this house every day and then on saturdays I'm going to explore the world and take pictures of what I see.{Wow, and I thought my saturdays were busy!}

Q. What is a grown-up?
A. Um, it's when you are old...in your tens or twenties.

Q. Do you want to grow up?
A. Yah, because then you could be tall enough for things and could spell things right.

Q. Where are you going to live when you grow up?
A. Here? Or move into a new house?{He seemed very uncertain. Clearly he wants to live with me forever, right? Right!}

Q. Who would you live with?
A. "That's a tough question!"
Q. What does it mean to be married?
A. Only 1 person. You get to be with a girl or boy.

Q. Is it better to be single or married?
A. Married because if it's just you, you have to do everything by yourself and there is no one to help.

Q.Why do people hold hands?
A. Say there are 100 people..and then just 2 people...if you let go of their hand you'd lose them and you'd get the the wrong person if they looked alike. Hold hands to keep them.
Q. What does love look like?
A. When you give someone a hug or kiss. Do a big job for someone. Or give them a $20 bill.{Ha, he knows his mama's wishlist too well.}

Q. What is Valentine's Day for?
A. Helps people give hugs and kisses.
Q. What would you do for someone?
A. Make them a cookie.

And then, on to Calvin.

Dear sweet Calvin. Most of the questions I asked him on love and marriage were answered with silence... or "I don't know" or "I can't know, I don't have a good thinking head". Bless his heart. We are doing everything we can to encourage him to keep his head up!

So, here are some questions my 4-year-old did manage to answer.

Q: What is your favorite color?
A: Gold or golden rod.

Q.What do you want to be when you grow up?
A. Calvin looked at me nervously and he quietly muttered "race-car driver, rocket driver and a chef.

Q. What is a grown-up?
A. Someone that's old. 12.

Q. What is your favorite thing to do?
A. Legos.

Q. What is your favorite animal?
A. Jaguars and Alligators.

Q. How tall is your mom?
A. Up to the light switch.

Q. What is your mom good at?
A. Watching Ollie push Twain.{Eeks}

Q. What is your mom not good at?
A. I don't know. Nothing. Sometimes I see Ollie push Twain.{double eeks}

Q. What does your mom do for a job?
A. Uh, fold laundry.

This concludes our Q & A for today.
