I frequently interview my children for their scrapbooks, to record their favorite things at various ages. It’s fun to look back at those pages and see how their interests change over time. Around age 2, I like to do a video interview, because at this age they’re becoming very verbal, and their little voices are so squeaky and cute. Tonight, I was watching DJ run around the back yard, yelling “Yee HAW! I a pony, Mom!” and I realized that today is the last day he’ll be officially 2 1/2. His birthday is February 1st, so tomorrow begins the rapid slide toward age 3.
I’m not ready for him to grow up….not even a little bit. When this realization hit me, I felt like I just wanted to capture him, just as he is right now, so I grabbed my video camera, and when he came in for his bubble bath, I asked him some questions. (The bathtub is a good place to interview a 2-year-old, because they’re usually calm and relaxed during bath time, and they can’t run away!)
My favorite parts of this video are when he told me his age, and his favorite things to eat! He’s such a funny, silly little guy. I sure do love him.
