Interview with My Son - 2012

I've been seeing ideas for doing interviews with kids on Pinterest and decided to do one with my own! Here's how it went:

When are you (or have you been) most afraid? In the dark.

What was the happiest day in your life? When I went to school.

If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be? A toy.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Nothing.

What is the one thing you could not live without? Mama & Daddy

What is your favorite movie or show? Top Gear

What cartoon character would you most like to be? Mario

What is the worst thing about being 4 years old? Nothing!

What is the best thing about being 4 years old? I play games, play with my toys, play with Mama and Daddy, play Wii with my Mama and Daddy.

Describe your perfect day. I play Wii with my Mama and Daddy and then play toys with my Mama and Daddy.

What job would like to have when you grow up? Spray fire with water and help cats and people. Nevermind, just cats. I want to be a firefighter with a fire truck.

Who are your best friends and why? Will. But everybody at school that are boys and girls are my best friends.

What does Mama always say to you? Go play in your playroom.

What makes Mama happy? When I color pretty pictures and do nice stuff.

What makes Mama sad? When I don't color pretty pictures and don't do nice stuff.

How does Mama make you laugh? When you do silly stuff.

What was Mama like as a kid?
She did nice stuff.

How old is Mama? 5? Um. 10.

How tall is Mama? 38 tall.

What is Mama's favorite thing to do? Play with me.

What does Mama do when you're not around? Fun stuff.

What is Mama really good at? Playing Wii.

What is Mama really bad at? Fixing stuff.

What does Mama do for her job? Takes pictures of me.

What is Mama's favorite food? I don't know.

If Mama was a cartoon character, who would she be? Mickey Mouse

How are you and Mama the same? We look like the same.

How are you and Mama different? I do different stuff.

How do you know your Mama loves you? Because.

Because why? Because you love me that much!

Where is Mama's favorite place to go? To Chuck E Cheese and play games with me.

Some of his answers had me thinking, "Really?" while I wasn't surprised by others. He's such a sweet kid. This whole interview was worth hearing the answer to this question:

What is the one thing you could not live without? Mama & Daddy

Easter Centerpiece

Super Kid and I threw together this little Easter centerpiece for our breakfast table yesterday. Everything (except the vase, which I had already) came from the Dollar Tree, which made this centerpiece cost a total of $5 and took all of 15 MINUTES!!! We love it!
Easter Centerpiece -

How I did it:
What you need:
- Small vase - can be square or round
- Jelly beans - how much will depend on the size of your vase. I used one bag.
- Peeps - can be chicks or bunnies - Again, depends on the vase, I used 1 full pack (2 rows)
- Styrofoam floral arranging foam - mine was round, because my vase was round
- Faux flowers
- Foam Easter eggs on sticks (optional) - this was something I found as the Dollar Tree that was super cute. I don't know how else to describe them, LOL

What I did:
I put the styrofoam floral foam in the center of the vase. Then we filled around the styrofoam with jelly beans until it was to the top of the styrofoam, not OVER the top, just to the top rim. Then we arranged our Peeps on top of the jelly beans. Make sure you dust as much sugar off of your Peeps as possible. Otherwise, you'll end up with sugar all over your jelly beans and your vase. Then cut your flowers to the height you want and arrange them into the styrofoam floral form. If you have some cute stick-ins like the Foam Easter egg ones I had, you would add those last.

Voila! A cute, cheap, QUICK Easter centerpiece that the kids are sure to love!

Last year, I took a short hiatus from my photography. Well, a short hiatus turned into about an 8 month break. I was burnt out... which was the result of a confusing and frustrating shoot last March. Anyway, I'm ready to get back to it! Here's one from a recent shoot...

Just thought I'd share! :)
