Ask your kids to talk about what their favorite things are and see if you can get them to stop talking (at least if you have a chatterbox girl like I do).
I did this same project last year as one of my very first blog posts ever (you can see it here) but I just made a list of her favorites. I thought it would be kind of hilarious if I put them in little thought bubbles and blurbs like you were peeking inside her little kindergarten noggin.
Of course she loved the photo shoot part the best, especially when I told her she could make funny faces. Home Alone anyone?
I told her to pose like she was thinking…she looks very deep in thought. She has been walking around scratching her chin ever since saying “Hmmmmm….”
I ask her what she’s up to and she says “Shhh! I’m thinking!” :)
Little man was feeling left out and wanted to get in on the photo shoot, so we added the little “I heart sissy” blurb just for him. He is going to be wandering aimlessly around the house when his best friend and social director leaves for kindergarten, poor guy.
Here’s the list of questions I asked my grown up kindergarten girl:
Who’s your favorite singer? “We are never, ever, ever, ever, ever. ever, ever…. (you get the idea) getting back together!! WEeeeeeeeEEE!”
What’s your favorite food? This was a no brainer for her –
This one was tougher, what’s your favorite color? “Red, NO, Blue, wait, Purple? Well, I can’t really choose let’s just say I like rainbow colors, ok mom?”
How about your favorite thing to play with?
and finally her favorite books are from the “Olivia” series. They are my favorite too, if you haven’t read them they are super cute stories about a little sassy pig named Olivia.
Phew! Got them all in, now if I can just survive that first day of kindergarten. I’m vowing I will not hysterically cry in the parking lot…or at least I’ll try not to…
