My Interview With Little Man

For me, January is all about organization!

I realize I'm not the only one... But each year when I start putting Christmas away, I get the itch to start organizing.  Every. space. in. my. house! Yesterday I literally spent all day long organizing.  From the basement to the office; from the pantry to the sock drawer!  One organization project seems to lead to another.

Ever since Little Man was born, I have debated about how to organize our photos and memories!  I have debated about photos versus scrapbooking versus printing our family blog book!  I stil haven't nailed down a system that I completely love, but I am thrilled about this fun idea:

I stumbled on several adorable interview ideas on Pinterest, and I knew I had to create my own!

I actually conducted my first interview with Little Man over the summer when he turned 2 1/2.  This was the first time that I felt I could pin him down to try to have a real conversation.  His answers to the questions were hysterical!  I actually busted out the video camera because it was so fun to see him answer the questions in his very own little way.  This frame has been sitting on his dresser since then.  I decided that I want to conduct interviews every 6 months which means we are preparing for our next interview.  Can you believe that my Little Man is almost three years old?!  He is growing up way too fast.

Here are the questions that I asked this time around:

What is your name?

How old are you?

What color is your hair?

What color are your eyes?

What is your favorite food?

What is your favorite song?

What is your favorite treat?

What is your favorite color?

What is your favorite animal?

What is your favorite book?

What is your favorite store?

What do you like to do with Daddy?

What do you like to do with Mommy?

What is your favorite movie?

What is your favorite TV show?

Who are your friends?

What is your favorite thing to do outside?

What is your favorite thing to play inside?

Then I used some elements from Crystal Wilkerson's Jumbo Alphabet and October's Sweet Paper Collection as well as Echo Park Paper's Little Boy Element Pack.  (Some of my favorites!)  I sized this as an 8x10 and sent it over to Costco.

I placed it in a frame on Little Man's dresser...

 

I plan on keeping these in his scrapbook or baby book.

What a fun way to remember his little personality!

Don't forget to come link up your creations tomorrow to my very first "Wednesday's Wowzers" linky party!  I can't wait to see what you've been working on!

Also, the winner of the Silhouette Cameo will be announced tonight!  Exciting times on the blog!

  3. This is a really really cute idea! My son just turned three, I think I will interview him this weekend!

  4. LOVE this, Alison!!! I really need to do this with my toddler. His answers would be too funny! I think we’ll make this a New Year tradition so I can start now. 😉 Thanks for the inspiration!

  5. I totally love this! :-)

  6. This is so cute! I’m definitely going to do it for my little monkey! Crack me up that he says his favorite TV show is Fox News! Love it!

  7. I love that his favorite store is “Car Wash!” Too cute!

  8. It’s funny because I’ve been thinking about starting something like this with my daughter! I had a friend growing up who’s parents did this with them on video. He had a VHS tape that they just kept adding to each year. I was thinking the other day about compiling short clips for a DVD and while thinking up my quest I couldn’t come up with enough questions to make it sound good enough to execute. But you just supplied me with many that I did not think of! Thank you!

  9. I love this idea. My oldest will be turning three this month. It would be adorable to videotape her answering these! Thanks!

  10. Shirley Lupton says:

    I can see you in a few years and looking over all of these questions and wondering what happened to that little boy, with tears in your eyes. This is a beautiful way to remember.

  11. LOVE THIS! I’m going to do this today with my little man. He always says the funniest things! What a cool idea Alison. :)

  12. This is a great idea…. I did scrapbooks for my kids’ baby books and do electronic since then. I like the idea of slipping these into the back of the baby books. Thanks!

  13. I’ve seen these on Pinterest. Yours turned out great. So sweet.

  14. Did you do that electronically? Then Costco printed it?

  15. Hi Alison!!! I recently ran across your blog while on Pinterest, which is my new favorite website to unleash and reveal my creative side, BTW!!! I just love your Mommy School ideas”) My son is turning 4 on January 31st and I have oodles and oodles of workbooks but get soo overwhelmed on where to begin with them. Your ideas have helped me tremedously and I can not wait to start teaching him in a more organized way. I have read your About Me section and realized that we have a lot in common when it comes to our new found love of being OCD about organization and finding a hobby to keep us busy while being stay at home mommies all day every day! I love it but I definatly needed to find an outlet, and being organized and creative has surely paid off!! I love my new found creative self and I can not wait to see what all come of it”) happy crafting and pinning and again THANK YOU SOO MUCH<3
