INTERVIEW WITH MY LITTLE SISTER, GRACE

by - January 27, 2018


Most of us have a sibling.  Maybe you think of them with annoyance, but siblings are actually pretty cool.  Especially younger siblings.  They're your mini-me, your shadow and your biggest fan all rolled into one small bundle of goodness.

My little sister Grace is turning 9 in a little less than a week, and upon asking her what I should post, she suggested I interview her.  I decided to jump on the idea and take the plunge.


  "Would you like to introduce yourself?"

  "Sure.  Hi, I'm Grace and I'm 8 years-old.  I was born in Nebraska."  She pauses, trying to think of what to say next.  " Are you putting my 'ums'?" She asks anxiously.  I assure her I won't. "Did I say I was 8 years old?  Oh, my birthday is February 2nd!"


  "What is something you love to do?"

  "Well."  She pulls at the cinnamon gum in her mouth.  "I like to play.  And dress dolls."


  "What are three words to describe you?"

  "Playful, friendly... Excited?"



  "Who are some of your favorite people in the world?"

  "Well, you.  Mommy, Sarah, God.  Well, He's not really a person, so I don't know if you should count Him.  And my friends."


  "What would you tell someone who was really sad, and couldn't seem to cheer up?"

  "For one, pretend you aren't sad.  Try and do things that you really like to do.  Like, drawing or reading or, like, anything really.  And that usually helps me.  Or even talking to a family member or a close friend."


  "What are your favorite movies?"

  "I like Tintin, Tangled, The Greatest Showman, Wonder, The Lion The Witch and the Wardrobe."

  "Why do you like those movies?"

  "I don't know.  I feel like they're just really incredible.  Everything they're doing, they're really well filmed.  Oh, also The Incredibles.  There's action in them, there's sad parts, and intense parts, and there are just parts."  She laughs showing her missing teeth.  "Everything in them goes together and you have to have all the bits of the movie, I feel like.  You have to watch the whole thing to really get the story."



  "What your favorite color?"

  "Purple," she answers promptly.

 "Why?"

  "It's calming and sweet, I feel like.  And every time I see it, it sends a nice calming feeling all over my body.  It makes me really cozy," she says smiling to herself.

  As I write down what she said she leans over in her chair and whispers quietly, "I think I'm doing pretty good."
  "What is something you really like about yourself?"

  "I don't know.  I feel like this is kind of braggy."  She raises her shoulder in uncertainty.

  "You're fine," I assure her, smiling.

  "Um, probably, uh.  I try to encourage my friends and family to do something er, to like help them if they're really scared to do it.  And demonstrate to them how I do it."


  "What do you want to be when you grow up?"

  "A physical therapist.  Because I had to go to physical therapy and I feel like it helped me SO much.  Now I really want to help other people, too."
  "What's your favorite thing to pretend?"

  "Ooh."  She smiles and wiggles in her seat.  "That's hard!  Probably that I'm a hobo in Kit's (an American Girl doll's) time period."


  "If you could make one wish for anything, what would you wish for?"

  "Oh my gosh, Ella.  That's hard too!"  She thinks for a moment before asking,  "Can we come back to this?  Well, I think my wish would be...  Oh, wait.  I know what I would want: to go to Disney Land."



  "If you could only keep 5 of your possessions what would they be?"

  "My stuffed panda, Kit (her doll), a pair of clothes."  She counts them off on her fingers.  "Uh, a pencil and an empty  notebook."
  "How should I wrap up this interview?  What do you think I should say?"

  "Um," she giggles, chewing her gum a little faster.  "I don't know!"

  "Well, what would you say at the end of this post?"

  "That's hard," she exclaims.

  "You know what, Authur is on, so you might want to go watch that now."

  "Oh, okay.  Thanks.  That's what you should say: thank you.  Thank you."  She laughs, rushing to grab the remote.  The afternoon sun slants in and reflects off her dirty-blond hair as she watches her favorite show.

 
Thank you.  ;)
Do you have siblings?  How many?  What's your favorite color?  Have you ever interviewed someone from your family before?  Which was your favorite answer of Grace's?

  18. I have soon to be nine younger siblings! I loved this interview. When she said she felt like she was bragging about herself, awww <3. I did an interview of my little sibs one year after we went to the fair, and posted it on my blog, it was soooo much fun! And these types of posts are so fun to read, too! Thank you for sharing!
