My birthday boy...

is SIX today! This is big big stuff, people. I awoke EARLY this morning to a finger lightly tapping my cheek: "It's morning mommy...the sky is blue and the sun is out. And I'm SIIIIXX!!"

To honor and commemorate this milestone in my son's life, we both sat down and I interviewed him earlier this afternoon. This is what he shared with me:

Me: What do you like most about yourself, Noah?

Noah: I like my healing powers. When I hurt my eye it got better so fast! That is amazing.

Me: What would you like to be when you grow up?

Noah: I would really like to be an author.

Me: Oh? What kinds of things will you write?

Noah: a bunch of kids stories; the kind that grownups read to kids.

Me: What is your favorite thing to do?

Noah: I like video games and dressing up.

Me: What is your favorite color?

Noah: I love all the colors but mostly green.

Me: favorite food?

Noah: Chinese! I think I might be Chinese.

Me: favorite movie?

Noah: The Princess and the Frog! I love the music in that movie.

Me: What did you like most about kindergarten?

Noah: Lunch.

Me: What did you like the least about Kindergarten?

Noah: Messing up on my dot-to-dots.

Me: What is the hardest thing you've ever done?

Noah: Mario Cart is really hard...and also being brave around wasps and bees.

Me: What would you do with $100?

Noah: I would keep it in my piggy bank.

Me: If you could have one wish, what would it be?

Noah: stay with my family forever.

Me: What is the nicest thing someone has ever done for you?

Noah: Mrs. Guenther (best kindergarten teacher EVER) helped comfort me when I hurt my head at recess.

Me: If you could ask God one question, what would it be?

Noah: How do you exist if noone made you?

There you have it...a small peek into the heart of my Noah. I am quite convinced he is a little old man in a child's body sometimes.

Stay tuned for pictures from the grand birthday party and his "Nightmare Before Christmas" themed cake!
