What is your favorite food? mac and cheese and 'pasghetti' (she loves spaghetti, that is true. She continues to say mac and cheese is her favorite but she rarely wants to eat it anymore. She also loves to eat buttered pasta, cucumbers, carrots, grits, anything sweet of course like candy and cupcakes, and she loves peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Just so I know what her real favorites were at age 5.)
Your favorite sport to play? catch; I like to play that with daddy
favorite thing to watch? Caillou and Bernstein Bears (yes, Caillou continues to be a favorite, much to my dismay. If she is ever watching that one, I have to really listen in and make lots of comments like, "was that a good way for Caillou to respond?" since Caillou spends the majority of the episode whining!!)
coolest person on earth? God (here I said, okay, what about a human who lives on earth, and she said she didn't know)
favorite thing to learn in school? art (this is definitely true. In fact she told me the other day that she thinks all of school is boring except for art)
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go? Heaven (again, I prompted her to choose somewhere on earth, and by the way, she is definitely beginning to give "church answers" because she thinks that is what she is supposed to say), Near's house and Mae Mae and Pop's house
Favorite color? red, pink, and purple. pause. and yellow.
What do you want to be when you grow up? a princess, (I prompt, "anything else?") I don't know, a nurse? (really she always tells me she wants to be an artist or a waitress)
What is your favorite song? Do Not Be Anxious (a seeds family worship song--the words to Philippians 4:6-7 it's the song we sing when she is scared about anything)
Favorite book? Betsy, Ramona, and the Boxcar Children
What are three words that describe you? "I don't know," me--"well, what are you like?" "a princess, a stinker, and a big sister," she answered
When I was little I used to: paint, wear diapers, and "I taked a nap in a crib. I hate cribs because you can't climb out"
What is your favorite season? winter because it snows, and summer because you get to swim in the pool, play in the sprinkler, go to your friends' houses a lot, and my birthday is almost here
What is your favorite snack? pop tarts, me--"really, you don't eat those very much at all," her--"okay, string cheese" (true, she eats string cheese at least once a day)
Food I don't like: tomatoes
Who is your best friend? Hannah and Kayla and everybody (Kayla is a sixteen year old girl that goes to our church, and Ada LOVES her)
What is your favorite thing to do with John (I added this one)? hang out together, me--"what do you like to do when you hang out together?" her--"play like a monster is trying to get us." (yes, John is obsessed with this game)
If you could make one wish, what would it be? a princess would come
What is your best memory? "What is a memory," asks Ada, "something you remember doing," I answer. "when we got to see Near," answered Ada.
Is there anything else you want to say? "Are you going to ask me a bad one?" asks Ada, "A bad what? A bad question?" I ask, "are you going to ask me about a bad memory?" said Ada, "do you want me to ask you that?" me, "yes...it's when the car caught on fire; that's a really good one isn't it?" said Ada (with a really big grin on her face)
What are you most excited about your birthday? all of my friends are coming
(Ada loves to pose, so this is also an appropriate five years old picture. It's so hard to take her picture these days because she immediately goes into some sort of pose.)
