Annslee's 5th Year


Who knew how much love and joy one little girl could bring into our lives? 

Annslee's 5th birthday is today and we really couldn't imagine our lives without her. She's bright, fun to be around, artistic and thoughtful. She is responsible for ...
  • Getting us up, off the couch and dancing like nobody was watching on the first note of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse's, "Hot Diggety Dog". Ahem.
  • Inspiring our improvisational skills in sock-puppet show development.
  • Keeping us on our toes with her incredible memory for specific things we reportedly said 3 weeks prior.  
  • Pushing our creativity beyond its limits into imaginary play.
  • Getting us back to the playground again. 
  • Giving us our 'Grandparent' names. (I'm "Momo", he's "Bobo" )

So last night, I thought an interview with The Birthday Girl would be in order...

Interview With a 5 Year Old...

Q: What do you want to be when you grow up? 
- a doctor
Q: Who is your best friend?                        
- Peyton
Q: Do you have a boyfriend?
- Yes
Q: What is your boyfriend's name?
- Peyton
Q: What is your favorite toy?
- My sticker book
Q: What do you like to do for fun?
- Play outside
Q: What is your favorite food?
- Macaroni and Cheese

OK. So the 'interview' was not 'all that'. I plan to ask her the same questions on her 10th, 15th and 20th birthdays. Could be interesting - or not. 

For who she is today and for whom she will be in the future, we can't help but feel blessed and honored to be her "Momo & Bobo". My guess? An attorney or CEO This girl is the ultimate negotiator.
Aka "Momo"
