Continuing my annual interviews with my children from yesterday’s Jenny interview post, here’s Reagan’s interview:
She’s grown up some since last year.
Her favorite foods are still fruits, but different fruits.
I’m happy she still thinks her dad and I are the coolest people in the world – of course she wouldn’t hurt our feelings by just picking one of us.
You might wonder why she wants to go to Los Angeles. I did, so I asked her. Her response? Because it’s cool, man. And Angel lives there. (Yes, Angel from Buffy.)
I was also surprised she now wants to be a pediatrician. She’s never mentioned it before. Again I asked why. Pediatricians are cool, man. Plus I’d still be able to hang out with kids.
Never Shout Never is one of Reagan’s favorite bands currently. She’s into boy bands like One Direction and Justin Bieber and apparently, Never Shout Never, who I’d never heard of before she suddenly became interested in their music.
One issue with doing these interviews in the summer? Reagan’s a little too honest in revealing that she’s not reading. I swear she reads a lot, in general, but she’s not as into reading as Jenny is now, which is strange because it used to be the opposite. She’ll pick it right back up during the school year though. She’s busy doing the thing she’s best at for these last three weeks of summer: playing.
I’m wondering if I should be concerned that, for the second year, Reagan states that the thing she USED to do when she was little was poop. I believe she still does, though I don’t go to the bathroom with her anymore. (Actually I know she does because something she doesn’t do well? Flush.)
Reagan’s one wish last year was to live with us forever. I guess that was before I cut her hair short and she decided to hate it. Now she just wants really long hair again.
I’m not sure why her favorite memory is telling her teacher she smelled like a lollipop. It was right before kindergarten started at open house, and I’ll tell you that the teacher being referred to here still remembers it, but I’d like to think Reagan would have better memories than that one in her life. She’s a strange girl.
You may think Brinky couldn’t participate in this interviewing process because, you know, he doesn’t talk. But he can. We just helped him out with his answers. I’ll be posting Brinkley’s interview tomorrow.
