20 Questions

There was a list I saw someone post on facebook a few years ago.  I've kept that list because I thought they would be so much fun to ask my son when he got a little bit older.  

Shows how much I knew about 3 year olds then.  


I've been working on this list with Adrian since May.  MAY!  Because after about 1.5 questions he'd always ask exasperatedly, "Mom, can we let's not do this anymore?"...yes, I know, bad grammar (he is only three) but to that I would actually start to bribe him with chocolate chips.  "Just one more question bud and you can have 3 chocolate chips.  Now.  What am I really good at?"  "I don't know!" "What do you mean you don't know??  Am I a good cook, do I tell you good stories...pick one."  Okay, so I used a bit of guidance on a question or two but the answers remain all his.  It was fun and funny and some of the answers so sweet. Though it took a while (a mere four months) I'm so happy I we prevailed.  

1. What is something mom always says to you?

No, thank you.

2. What makes mom happy?

Hey Iron Man Girl...(I think there's a medical condition in this title). How do you get your fat head into the mask?

Your kid is awesome. He does have a huge fat red head. But why are you Iron Man Girl? Do you have a robot suit?
