Inspired by one of MamaKat’s writing prompts today, I decided to interview AJ in the car on the way to pick up the big kids. Here’s how our interview went (I wrote it down on the back of a grocery store receipt while I was waiting for the kids to be done. I didn’t want to forget.)
Me: AJ, what’s your favorite thing to do?
PAUSE (I thought maybe that he hadn’t heard me. He had….)
AJ: Finding treasure.
AJ: A pirate. So I can find treasure.
AJ: Cuz I want to be rich.
Me: Oh, are pirates rich?
AJ: Yeah, cuz they have lots of treasure.
AJ: I’m going to need to build a really big boat like Noah’s Ark. I’ll need lots of wood.
Me: Are we all going to live on the boat?
AJ: Yeah, we’l all live on the boat and be rich.
Me: What about school? Aren’t you looking forward to starting school?
Me: But don’t you need to learn things to be a good pirate?
AJ: MOM! I already know how to be a good pirate!
Apparently, he’s been learning all he needs to know from his videos. Thank goodness. I can’t wait til he gets big enough so that we can live the high life on a pirate ship and be rich.
What’s the deal with my boys and shiny golden things?
