Twenty Questions

About a month ago, I got a great idea from my friend Tracy’s blog: start a new tradition with your children by asking them the same twenty questions each year and recording their answers. Fun! Since the BBs (beautiful boys) recently turned eight and five, I decided to give it a go. Some of their answers were quite unexpected! Hopefully I will remember to do this again next year…

BB#1: Purple

BB#2: Turquoise

BB#1: Lego

BB#2:  Lego

3. What is your favourite fruit?

BB#1: Peach

BB#2:  Mango

4. What is your favourite TV show?

BB#1: Men in Black The Series

BB#2:  Power Rangers

5. What is your favourite thing to eat for lunch?

BB#1: French toast

BB#2:  Cinnamon toast

BB#2:  Fox [o-kay…]

10. What is your favourite song?

BB#1: “Revenge” [Minecraft parody song on YouTube]

BB#2:  [Note: I seem to have neglected to record this one, oops! But since he asks me to play “Brass Monkey” by the Beastie Boys, I’d say we have a winner]

11. What is your favourite book?

BB#1: The Hobbit (“next year it’s probably going to be Lord of the Rings”)

BB#2:  Ninjago book at the bookstore [writes this down on Christmas list…]

12. Who is your best friend?

BB#1: All of my friends

BB#2:  Jack [this was a bit of a surprise; he has another friend he plays with more and who he regularly refers to as his “favourite friend”…]

13. What is your favourite sport?

BB#1: Skiing

BB#2:  Running

14. What is your favourite thing to do outside?

BB#2:  Playing Ninjago

15. What is your favourite drink?

BB#1: Coke [which he is not allowed to drink…]

BB#2:  Hot choco [I think it’s sweet he still calls hot chocolate “hot choco”; that’s what our nanny used to call it, and she hasn’t worked for us in almost two years.]

16. What is your favourite holiday?

BB#2:  Cinnamon toast

19. What do you want for dinner on your birthday?

BB#2:  Pizza [I’m glad he didn’t say cinnamon toast…]

20. What do you want to be when you grow up?

BB#1: An inventor

BB#2:  If I grow up, I’ll be an engineer [Note: he said a number of times before his 5th birthday that he wanted all four of us to throw coins in a fountain and wish to never get any older and never to die. I know, right?!]
