Interview with Bud at 6

Better late than never! My friend, Megan, interviews her boys at their birthdays and half-birthdays, asking them the same questions each time. I think this is a great idea, and I have been meaning to copy it for a long time, but finally got around to it.

What are you not so good at? jump roping and basketball

Who are your favorite friends? Matthew, Langston, Grant, Levi, Tucker, Stanley, Shayne, Samuel, Luke, Celeste, Victoria, Evangeline, Afton…. (I cut him off since he was starting to name every child he knows.)

What is your favorite part of school? Reading

What is the best thing about having a brother? We are both kind of the same and play together

What is the best thing about having a sister? Building things with her and when she scares me

Tell me something that is really funny. There was a chicken trying to cross the road. You know why? He wanted to lay eggs on the other side.

What makes you cry? Daddy scaring me, being scared by big dogs

What does love mean? You like someone

What does it mean to be a good friend? You play together

What makes you worried? If we are going in a boat across a lake that is really far (for the record, he has never been in a boat)
