An Interview with Joseph

What’s your favorite color?  “That’s easy, it’s red.”

What’s your favorite book?  “Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes” (by Mem Fox)

What’s your favorite thing to do?  “Work on my laptop.”  Hmm, I’m surprised that’s what you chose.  It seems like there are so many other things that you love to do.  What about going outside?  Isn’t that your favorite thing to do?  “No, that’s my favorite part of the day.”  Ohhhh.

So, what’s your favorite part of the day?  (with an “are you serious?” look)  “Going outside.”

What’s your favorite thing to eat?  “Vegetables.”  Really?  What kind of vegetables are your favorite?  “Peas and carrots.  Mmmm.”

What’s your favorite fruit?  “Well, my favorite color is red, BUT my favorite fruit is blueberries.”

Where’s your favorite place to go?  “The Aquarium.  I love to see the fish.”

Who’s your best friend?  “Oh, William, of course.”

What do you want to be when you grow up?  “A knight.”

Do you have any goals?  Anything you’d like to accomplish soon?  “Oh, yes.  I’d like to learn to really throw a ball and I’d like to go pick some flowers.  Oh and I plan to grow a rock garden.”  A rock garden?  “Yes, a rock garden.  You see I already planted a rock over there in that bucket of water.  I better go check on it and see if it’s grown at all.”  (runs over to the bucket and pulls out the rock) “Yes, I think it’s growing a little.”  (hmm, maybe we need a science lesson on living vs nonliving things?)

Is there anything you’d like to add to this interview?  Any little detail about yourself that you want to always remember about being 3 years old?  “Yes.  I’d like to say that I really like to play with William.  Now I’ve got to go watch my rock grow.”
