In celebration of Grandma’s birthday today, I thought I’d do some interviewing.
What do you like best about Grandma?
Macy – We go to the park sometimes. And pick flowers.
Selah – I like picking flowers with her. And taking pictures with her. And taking a bath at her house.
But what do you like about her?
Macy – She bakes things that are sweet. And sometimes me and Selah get to share licking the spoon. And we get to – you know that little thing that mixes everything up – we get to lick the mixers. Selah gets to lick one, I get to lick one, and Grandma gets to lick one.
Selah – I like her because she’s funny. I like her because she’s sweet.
What’s your favorite thing you’ve done with Grandma?
Macy – I like when we go outside and get the baskets and pick flowers. My favorite flowers are the pink roses.
Selah – My favorite thing is when I go outside and pick flowers. I like her taking me to the park.
What should we get her for a birthday present?
Macy – A new phone.
Selah – I think she would like new toys.
Macy – What about new Grandma toys? (laughs)
Selah – I would like her to have a basket thing with a poodle.
