I just stumbled upon a super AMAZINGLY fabulous New Year’s family tradition over at Paint In My Hair.
This magical mom interviews her kids every year using questions like…
What is your favorite…
- TV show
- Thing to do
She types up the interview and then leaves a little box for her Happy Buddies to color a picture. Finally she slips the interviews into a folder for her Happy Home to return to each New Year’s and read previous responses.
If you visit her blog you will see a sample that her daughter did a few years ago- totally cute!
How fun is that?! I think it would be so fun to see how much the Happy Buddies have grown and changed over the years with this simple idea. When my Happy Buddy turned one last July, I did something similar for his birthday. Such a great record of their ever-changing little lives!
I was so inspired by Lisa’s post that I drew up an interview for you to print and do with your Happy Buddies this week as we start 2011! Print it out and get your kids to answer all the questions (you can even make a big deal about the interview process – grab your karaoke microphone and sit at a table with cups of hot cocoa. Say you’re Barbara Walters. ).

P.S. Go ahead and do one for the Happy Hubby, too. Why not???
Happy New Year’s Interviewing!
