What does Elin think of me?

I saw this really fun survey to ask your kids to record the funny things that will come to their mind. I thought it would be a great way to remember what Elin thought of me at 3.5 years old. I plan to try to remember to ask her these questions again in a year and see how her answers change!


1. What is something mom always says to you? Pink Doggie!

2. What makes mom happy? Legos

3. What makes mom sad? Crying

4. How does your mom make you laugh? My slinky (we had just found one in her toy bin a few minutes earlier.)

5. What was your mom like as a child?  A baby

6. How old is your mom? (She asked Phil until he gave her the correct answer)  32

7. How tall is your mom? (She asked Phil again and she guessed 5’5)

8. What is her favorite thing to do? Play with me

9. What does your mom do when you’re not around? Go to work

10. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for? For toys

11. What is your mom really good at? Shows (I’m guessing she means watching shows)

12. What is your mom not very good at?  Listening to me (this one made me sad! I always listen to her! I guess I’m too busy watching shows…..)

13. What does your mom do for a job? Painting

14.What is your mom’s favorite food? Green Beans

15.What makes you proud of your mom? Babies (Not sure if she means when I buy stuffed animals for her or when I play with them with her. She refused to elaborate.)

16. If your mom were a character, who would she be?  Mickey Mouse!

17. What do you and your mom do together? Read stories

18. How are you and your mom alike? We both like to play with the Calico Critter house

19. How are you and your mom different? She would not answer this one.  She was distracted and getting tired from the questioning.

21. What does your mom like most about your dad? Kisses

22. Where is your mom’s favorite place to go? Grocery Store  (she is soooooo wrong on this!)

  1. This is such a cute idea! I love her answers to some of the questions 🙂

  2. I saw this on FB too and it’s the cutest thing! I just did it with Noah and I’m cracking up at the answers!

  3. So funny! I saw this floating around FB, too. The grocery store? haha!

  4. Lol, so many good tidbits in here! Pink doggies? Do you really paint for a living? I think Ez would think we have the same talent: shows. And I doubt he’d think I listen that great either :-/

  5. Ive been meaning to do this with Kinsey! You just never know what they will say! 😉
