Peanut’s 3rd birthday interview

We’re starting the Interview tradition in the King household.  Starting on the 3rd birthday, we’re going to ask the kids the same series of questions and see how the answers change from year to year.

There is a video of Peanut answering the questions at the end, but here they are in short form:

  • What is your name?  Addison King
  • How old are you? 3
  • What is your favorite thing to do?  Eat  (because we were eating dinner.  This is not her favorite thing to do.  I would say paint or play with Ryan)
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?  Telephone.  And a bus. (I have no idea you guys)
  • What is your favorite food?  Bread  (she was eating bread)
  • Who do you like to spend time with?  Daddy  (mmm hmmm)
  • What do you do really well?  (No answers….but I’ll answer for her – paint, draw, run, listen)
  • What makes you laugh?  Taylor  (this one is actually true)
  • What is the best time of the day?  Mommy  (yes, this is true as well)
  • What are you afraid of?  Mommy  (I’m watching you, kid)
  • Who is your best friend?  Ryan (Yup)
  • What do you like to do with your family?  Read books (I love her and her answer, and yes, it’s true)
  • What do you love to learn about?  Face  (no idea…maybe they’re learning faces at school)
  • Where do you like to go?  Playground  (I am honestly surprised how much she understands and answers)
  • What is your favorite book?  Apple Slices (maybe this is a school thing, we don’t have a book like that)
  • If you had one wish what would it be?  A playground (I think maybe she wants to go back to the playground?  Or she thinks she’s funny)

And here it is, the whole thing on video.


  1. I love it! We started the birthday interview on Ethan’s 2nd birthday and it was so funny hearing his answers. He wanted to be a skateboard. I’m excited to see how much the responses change each year!

  2. I love this and am totally going to copy you! Too cute! …Since I missed AM’s 3rd birthday, maybe I should do a 3.5 year one!!?

  3. Too cute! I did this for Braden last year and just did his 4 year old interview this morning!

  4. This is hysterical, but honestly, all I could focus on was the pasta mess. haha! ;)

  5. Oh this is so sweet, it is lovely to see what they answer to the questions. It’s lovely to hear her after seeing photos of her for so long.

  6. I love this! I am going to do this with Cameron in a few years. 3 is a great year to start. Her answers and sweet voice are precious. :)

  7. Finally got to watch the video! Great idea, totally stealing it. Also love her approach to pasta. ;)
