A little bit of Ari

The other night as we sat down to dinner Ari asked “why don’t you guys ever ask me any questions?” We were a little perplexed by this because we do ask her questions everyday like “what did you do today” or “how was your day” to which she usually responds with answers like “nothing” or “fine”. So on this particular night we started asking her those types of questions and that was not what she was looking for. We asked “well, what kind of questions do you want us to ask?” “Just questions” was her response. Not knowing what she was looking for from us at that moment DH and I just started asking a bunch of random questions and she was answering them so I grabbed a pencil and started writing them down on my napkin. (Crazy I know, but I couldn’t be bothered to get a piece of paper.)I thought it would be nice to have a record of some of Ari’s favorite things at this age and since she was so willingly answering here there are.

Favorite Food:
Taco Soup
Cheeseburgers and fries

Favorite Drink:

Favorite Cereal:
Captain Crunch
Golden Puffs

Favorite Snack:

Favorite Dessert:
Vanilla Ice Cream and Brownies
Chocolate Carmel Crunch Cake (better known to most people as Better than Sex cake but we renamed it when she was little!)

If you could travel to 1 place where would it be?
Kenya, because of their wildlife parks.

What do you want to be when you grow up?
“You already know the answer to that one mom, a Veterinarian!”

Math…it used to be science but science isn’t fun anymore

(nice attitude huh?)

Favorite Animal:

We still don't know what she was going for when she asked why we didn't ask her questions, but this seemed to satisfy her and now we know a little bit more about Ari.

Oh Ari, she's so funny! But it's fun to see some of her answers and what her favorite things are.

What a cute girl. Um, I just want to point out that we have both now lived in CA for well over two years and haven't managed to drive an hour to see eachother yet? I think we need to do something about this. Let's start planning! It would be so fun for Ari and Kennedy to see eachother again. Plus i still have a baby gift sitting in the closet for you...which actually might be too small now. I'm pathetic.

What a little monkey or a Tarzan or a Jane (whatever) in the tree. Ari does love her Dante doesn't she?
