I interviewed my son yesterday and his answers are verbatim. I think he would have talked a lot more if I kept asking questions!

Is Halloween a holiday? Halloween!! Guess why I like Halloween. Because I'm going to dress up as a Ninjago this year.
What is your favorite thing to do with Mom?
I like to play Ninjago with her with my guys. I like to play Ninjago when Mommy pretends she's Nya and I'm Zane. I like to play with my Ninjagos and Fireman Sam with her when I set up a whole city.
What is your favorite thing to do with Dad?
Make him flip me in the pool. I like Daddy throwing me in the pool, but not all the time. I love to play Ninjago with him and I'm usually Zane. My Dad usually is Cole or Lloyd. I like playing baseball with him, too.
What is your favorite thing to do with Pop-Pop?
I like to play Ninjago with him. He usually is Cole and I'm usually Zane again. I like to work with him a lot because he's fun to work with and he lets me dig outside.
What is your favorite thing to do with Nana L.?
Play Ninjago with her. She usually is Nya. I usually play that with her a lot. So I guess I like picking weeds with her. And I have fun times picking tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers and stuff. And that's it.
What is your favorite thing to do with Nana N.?
I like to play with her in the pool and splash her and scare her.
What is your favorite thing to do with Chance?
Play fetch with him but I wipe the slobber from the ball on Daddy.
What are you most excited about this year in kindergarten?
I bet I'm going to have lots of toys in my classroom. I bet I'll be able to paint a lot. I hope Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Moyer are in my classroom because they're my camp teachers and they're really nice. I hope Brady and Manny are in my class. I'm just so excited to meet friends.
What are you most nervous about this year in kindergarten?
What do you want to be when you grow up?
I guess a police officer because I just like it and I hope I get a police officer car or a motorcycle or a horse. I really hope I get a horse because they run really fast.
Who are you going to marry when you grow up?
Uh... um... Mommy. Can I marry you, Mommy? I don't know who yet.
What are you going to name your kids when you grow up?
Is Jesus Christ a bad word? Jesus Christ I'm going to use for a boy, and Emma Toe I'm going to use for a girl. I also like the name Timothy. This one kid in my camp is named Timothy but he likes to be called TJ. I guess I like TJ. I like Toe. I like that name. I like Madelynn because that's a good name for a girl. I like Cade for a boy, and Cove, and Dylan, and all kinds of names like that. If I had a girl, I'd name her Elizabeth or something. And I guess that's it.

That is it. But, in the spirit of kindergarten, I leave you with this:
Name that movie. Oh, and have a good Tuesday!
