What She Had to Say on Her Sixth Birthday

Six? Really? Six whole years-old? I don't want it to be true! But she insists on getting bigger and bigger every day so I guess I'll have to learn to deal with it.

We have lots of big plans for our beautiful six year-old birthday princess today. I'll be back to report on all of the festivities later.

On the occasion of her big day, here is Ellie's "birthday interview" -- take two. I stole this idea from another blogger and I think that it is a great way to capture kids just as they are right now. I encourage you to steal this idea from me.

Here is what Ellie had to say on her 6th birthday:


cereal- Mighty Bites

vegetable- broccoli

drink- water and juice

toy- my Strawberry Shortcake doll

TV Show- Dragon Tales

game- Candyland

book- My Princess ABC's

dinner – mommy's homemade mac and cheese

lunch – peanut butter and jelly or noodles

breakfast - waffles

holiday- Easter

animal – flamingo

doll – "Rosie Violet"

color – pink

thing to do at school – recess and "the dramatic play center"

sport – ice skating and swimming

What do you want for your birthday? "A book that I can read -- an easy one, but not like a super easy one -- some hard words but with ones that I can mostly read."

If you could change your name, what would you choose? Lily

What do you love about each person in our family?

Daddy – I like that he is a good Daddy

Mommy – I like that you are a good Mom

Brendan – That he likes sports and he watches me do stuff

Colin – I like that he is cute and funny

Where would you like to go on vacation this year? Pittsburgh to see Grandma

What are some of your wishes for this year? I wish I had a kangaroo key chain. I also want to learn what else there can be in the world.

What makes you happy? Sometimes I sit in my bed and talk to myself.

What makes you sad? When I lose something.

How old is your Mom? 33

How tall is your Mom? 20 feet tall

What is her favorite thing to do? Take care of us.

What does Dad do for a job? Work to help our family.

What is your mom's favorite food? Salad.

What is Dad’s favorite food? Fish.

What does our family like to do together? Eat together.

What going to be when you grow up? A lot of stuff -- I should write it down because I can't remember it all. A ballet teacher, a teacher, a professional dancer.

Who are you going to marry? Maybe one of my friends from school. I used to want to marry Finn but now I think I should marry someone that I don't know. Or maybe someone from my preschool class.

Anything else you want to talk about? Having a good family and being able to help you and Dad. And being able to make my brothers feel happy. And sharing. And being able to give stuff a try -- like when we went to the hungry caterpillar puppet show. This year I am going to be able to write and read a lot of stuff. And I am going to be nice to my brother and anyone else I know.

She is by far the sweetest six-year-old I know. What a delight of a daughter you have! Happy Birthday Ellie!!

Cindy Fey said...

She looks just like her momma! And just as sweet.

What!?! The cousin love affair is over? It's sad that Finn had to find out on a blog. How 2010 of her to ditch him online.

I know that this will be tough for Finn to hear -- but is there ever a good way to tell your cousin that you don't plan on marrying him any more? Plus, didn't I meet Finn's "Plan B" at the park last week? She was pretty cute.
