Interview With a 3-Year-OldDanielle
This is Ben, short for Benjamin Emil. He is my three year old, and my most stubborn, hardheaded child. Probably the most needy as well, but I don’t mind because if you take one good look at him, and see those baby blues, they will melt your heard.
He is probably my funniest child as well. Completely unintentionally, but absolutely hysterical. From the bacon incident to his new love for Gangnam Style.
So, I thought about sitting down and having an actual conversation with him in detail and documenting it. We talk every day obviously, but I never sat down with a pen and paper to do something like this. I knew when the idea popped up in my head at 5am when I had to get up and pee, it would be amazing.
I just didn’t know how comical it would be.
We covered dinner, the Presidential election, bedtime, future career choices, and much more! I hope you guys are as amused as me!
Ben, What is your favorite song? 1 of 10"Opppppen Gangy Style!"
I am sure he meant Gangnam Style which seems to be everywhere these days. Seriously we turn on the radio and hear Korean Rap. I am a sucker too though, because I love it just as much!
"Oh, and Boom Boom Pow!" Ben added a couple minutes later. My kids have a strange obsession with The Black Eyed Peas, which I don't really listen to myself.

Ben, What do you want to be when you grow up? 2 of 10"Fireman!"
Since Daddy is a fireman, everything in life is about the fire house, and being a fireman. Independent play? They are firemen going to a fire call!
Ben, What do you like to do when Camden isn’t home? 3 of 10"Play with my fire trucks without sharing"
Oh the sibling love radiating from that!
Ben, Who do you want to be the next President of the United States? 4 of 10"Grandma!"
Ok, so apparently my mom should run for President according to Ben?
Given the choice between Obama and Romney, Ben then replied...
Then he finally answered...
So apparently Ben is rooting for both candidates!
Ben, What is your favorite food? 5 of 10"Acapulco!"
Which is a local traditional Mexican restaurant I would personally live of if I was allowed to.
I just love Mexican food, and I guess it has rubbed off on Ben!
Ben, What do you like to do at school? 6 of 10"Play outside"
This was the most politically correct answer I got out of him after "beating kids" which clearly is not something he does.
Cannot deal with his sense of humor.
Ben, In our family, who do you love the most? 7 of 10"MY LA LA!"
La La in our family is Great Aunt Donna. She is Will's aunt who Ben will follow to work if we all allowed him to. They are best friends.
Ben, What is your favorite snack? 8 of 10"FRUIT!"
He LOVES fruit. All kinds! I honestly haven't found a piece of fruit he won't eat!

Ben, What is your favorite part of bedtime? 9 of 10"Nothing... I hate bedtime."
Well, spoken like a true toddler right?
Ben, Do you have anything you would like to say to the Babble readers? 10 of 10"No. I hate blogging."
This one made me crack up, because a couple months ago he wanted his own blog just like mine. I even gave him a section of my own site called "Ben's Blog" which he quickly dumped.
