Every once in a while, I think to pull out my phone and capture a hilarious or tender moment on video. I don’t do it nearly often enough though.
As I was thinking about this and wondering what memories my children would really love to look back on someday, I had an idea. Why not end each year with an interview of sorts. Don’t you think it would be fun to look back and see what your five-year-old self wanted to be when you grew up or what your absolute favorite movie was at the ripe old age of seven?
I do. So I’ve put together a year-end interview for my children. Each year as they grow, I plan to repeat the interview and when they’re all grown up, give them the collection of their growing-up interviews.
Year-End Child’s Interview
How old are you?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
What is your favorite Bible verse? (Will you recite it for me?)
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite food?
What is your favorite book?
What is your favorite movie?
What is your favorite poem? (Will you recite it for me?)
What was the funniest thing that happened to you this year?
What is your best memory from this year?
What is your favorite song? (Will you sing it for me?)
If you could pick just one fun thing to do this next year, what would it be?
Create Your Own Interview
If you, like me, want to capture your children’s growing up years on video, but don’t remember to as often as you like, won’t you join me in yearly kid “interviews”? I just know my kids will love to look back on them someday… and so will I.
