Interview with Asher

My friend Patti did a cute little interview with her newly-five year old so I thought it would be fun to see how my own newly-five year old answered these questions, too.

1. At what age does a person become a grown up? "20." Why do you think that? "because I thought when you were 20 you were a grown-up. Were you?" (I nod) "Good."

2. IF you could be invisible for a day, what would you do? "drink invisible water and eat invisible food and do everything that was invisible and sleep in an invisible bed."

3. What is something that makes our family special? "that we care and share" (?)

4. Are you a good friend? "YES." Why do you think so? "Because I care and share about people."

5. How would the world be different if animals could talk? "It would be silly."

6. What's the best thing about being a kid? "I don't have to work a lot like Daddy does and I don't have very much business." The worst thing? "that I don't get to do what I want."

7. Where is your favorite place in the world? "Mamaw's house!" (no hesitation.)

8. If you could give one gift to every child in the world, what would it be? "something they needed."

9. What are five words that describe you? "silly, funny, fun, special, happy...sometimes"

10. If you could invent something, what would it be? "a machine that if you were sad it would make you back to happy." (I believe that's called a Margarita Machine)

11. If you could make one rule that everyone in the world had to follow, what would it be? "to follow God."

12.What's your favorite..
Color? red
Smell? cinnamon
Food? pizza

13. What does Daddy like to do? "stay at home with his boys"

14. What does Mama like to do? "take care of her boys because you love us."

15. What makes you special? "I care and I share and I help people and I'm a good friend."

16. What do you MOST want to do? "play with my Legos"

In case you haven't heard, Asher is ALMOST FIVE.

I would blog more but I've been spending my days trying to figure out how we went from this

to this

Time is so odd, with all its creeping and zooming by. I hardly know what to make of it all. In one sense, it feels like it has been five. long. years. (I'm tired.) In another sense, I can't figure out how it could possibly be time for a fifth birthday.

But for whatever reason (maybe it's part of the curse) only in looking back do we truly appreciate what we had. And we scratch our heads trying to figure out why we didn't know how good it was. And we surmise the reason must be because it all happened so quickly we barely had time to take it in.

We play with language to make it seem as though the clock hands were spinning rapidly like in a movie but they weren't. Time didn't really pass any more quickly or slowly than time ever has. So the best way we've come up with to tell how good something was is to think about the time, in which the thing was happening, traveling. Did it walk? Did it run? Did it hop into a shuttle and shoot to the moon?

When it comes to these baby days, its like they were in a rapidly moving vehicle. I'm talking rocketship. By which I mean, it's been good.

Really, really good.
