20 Questions About Mom (to Ask Your Toddler)

20 Questions About Mom (to Ask Your Toddler)I saw this list of “interview” questions to ask your kid …it was floating around on Facebook. You may have seen it too. Anyways, since I’m a sucker for things like this, I decided to see what Toby’s answers would be. It’s always fun to see what kids come up with… and my four year old is no exception.

I’ll be printing these out to put in his memory book — along with a similar set with questions about daddy (for Father’s Day …shhh!!)

1. What is something mom always says to you?
I love you

2. What makes mom happy?
*smiles and points at himself*

3. What makes mom sad?
I don’t know. Did I do something mean to you?

4. How does your mom make you laugh?
Tickle me

5. What was your mom like as a child?
That you smiled

6. How old is your mom?

7. How tall is your mom?
Real tall

8. What is her favorite thing to do?
Play with us

9. What does your mom do when you’re not around?
Work putting toys away

10. What is your mom really good at?
Playing soccer when you were my age

11. What is your mom not very good at?
Riding horses

12. What does your mom do for a job?
Work on the computer

13.What is your mom’s favorite food?
Pepper. Mama, pepper’s my favorite.

14.What makes you proud of your mom?
That you like to play with me

15. If your mom were a character, who would she be?

16. What do you and your mom do together?
We play together

17. How do you know your mom loves you?
You play with me

18. What does your mom like most about your dad?

19. Where is your mom’s favorite place to go?
Ash Auto

20. How old was your Mom when you were born?

The original “quiz” had three extra questions that I don’t think Toby really understood.  I excluded them above, because his answer for each of them was “I don’t know”

21. If your mom becomes famous, what will it be for?
I don’t know

22. How are you and your mom the same?
I don’t know

23. How are you and your mom different?
I don’t know

Anyways, I think this would make a cute interview do do on a yearly basis, just to see how the answers develop and change.  As I mentioned, I’ll be putting these “interview questions” into Toby’s memory box for later.  We don’t save everything — I’ll be going over what memories we save and how we do so in a future post, so make sure to sign up for weekly email updates!

    This is adorable Betsy! I loved reading your son’s answers and I love the idea of doing this yearly. I’m going to do my son now too and compare his answers to your son’s! Your son’s answer to #17 is particularly touching. Way to go Mama!

    Oh, that will be cute to do, Sue! Let me know know if he has any particularly cute responses 🙂

    Yep, my son loves to play. And you’re right. Number 17 is adorable, although I didn’t really think about that earlier. Isn’t it amazing how kids really want simple gestures of love? Like playing with them.

    Lists like this are so fun! I should ask my 3.5 year old.

    I’m sorry that pepper is your favorite food…you should really try a cookie or something sweet. 😉

    Lol! I know… no clue where he pulled that answer from. I was half expecting him to say sushi (or bananas, since he’d had THREE that day).

  5. These are so adorable. I want to do this asking kids about their dad, grandparents and each other (I think they’ll have some hilarious answers about each other)! Thanks for sharing and hosting Small Victories Sunday linkup with us. Pinned to our linkup board.

    Great questions. I wonder what my kids would say. It’s a great way to get feedback on parenting! haha
