Twenty Q’s with a Kindergartener

Does anyone else remember twenty questions? With Grace starting Kindergarten, I knew I wanted to do something to document this age. So I thought, why not play it with Grace? It could be interesting, haha. She has come into her personality so much in the past year. She is smart, talented, funny, kind, and so much more. As we get older, we start to forget what it’s like to view the world through the eyes of a child. Are you ready to see the world from Grace’s eyes? I know I am.

  1. How old are you?  “I’m Five Mom, you know this.”
  2. What’s your full name? “Well, it’s Grace Melinda”
  3. What is love to you? “Umm…love is hugs and kisses. A lot of them.”
  4. How old is Mommy? Daddy? “Uh, Mommy. I think you’re sixteen. And Daddy too, Daddy is sixteen too.”
  5. What do you want to be when you grow up? “A police officer. Definitely a police officer.”
  6. What’s your favorite thing you own? “My Hatchimals. They’re so tiny and cute.”
  7. What animal would you like to be? Why? “A Cheetah. Oh! Actually, a flying Cheetah with angel wings. I want to be fast.”
  8. What makes you feel loved? “Kisses and hugs. And when people throw their trash away. It’s the right thing to do.”
  9. Where would you go if you could fly? “The waterpark. I love the waterpark. Can we go now?”
  10. What makes you sad? Happy? “It makes me sad when I’m by myself. Hatchimals, birds, and stuffed animals make me happy.”
  11. What’s your favorite memory? “Fishing with Mommy and Coco.”
  12. How tall is Daddy? “Taller than you, Mom.”
  13. What’s your favorite thing about yourself? “That I’m like you Mommy.”
  14. What do you dream about? “Sharkboy and Lava Girl.”
  15. Do you have a best friend? “Phoenix. She’s a girl. She’s very nice and pretty. Just like you Mommy.”
  16. How does it feel to be a Kindergartener? “Good. It’s so much fun.”
  17. What’s your superhero name?  “Super G.”
  18. What would your powers be? “Ice, fire, water, Earth, and winter.”
  19. Who’s your favorite dog? “Um…sometimes Sofa, and sometimes Major. I like white dogs.”
  20. If you could do anything, what would it be? “Go to the waterpark. I love the waterpark Mommy. Please can we go?”

That was fun to do. It’s humbling to see how your kids view things. It’s always so pure. Grace is the best, and I feel lucky that she is mine. This year is going to be so good for her. I’m excited to watch her grow and learn. She’s a beautiful, smart little girl. I’m so proud to call myself her Mom. Time goes by so fast, so make sure you cherish every moment. Take pictures. Videos. Save those memories…I promise you won’t regret it. I’m excited to come back to these questions in the future and see how she viewed the world. Grace Melinda, you are a star. I love you so much.
