My Birthday Interview with Megan (#TuesdayTen Linkup)

Back in September, we celebrated Ask a Stupid Question Day by choosing 10 random questions from this list and answering them in our blog posts for Tuesday Ten. It was so much fun and we had such a great link up that day, we decided to do it again this week!!!  Since today, December 9th, is my middle daughter's 10th birthday, I decided that, for my post, I would use the questions to interview her!! She loved the idea and was very willing to participate. She chose the numbers (although, we had to try again on a couple because her original picks weren't very kid-friendly). Here are her answers with a little commentary from me added in. 

#1 - Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 18, and find line 4.
"There was not the slightest doubt about it, it was a penguin." (From Mr. Popper's Penguin's) Mom Commentary: Megan has never liked to read very much. She much prefers math and, yes, she absolutely gets that from her father! Lately, however, she has been doing much better about reading and I am very proud of her!

#3 - Before you started this survey, what were you doing?
Getting ready to go outside and ride my bike. Megan is a ball of energy and is rarely found sitting still. She LOVES to go outside and ride her bike even on cold, windy days like today (Sunday).

#93 - Can you close your eyes and raise your eyebrows?
Yes!  No commentary needed on this one, but here's a picture to prove it! 

#32 -What was the last thing you bought?
 Um . .  I don't buy things really. You (mom) bought me the book - Mr. Popper's Penguins. Megan is great at saving her money. We don't give our kids an allowance, but Megan has actually been earning some money for helping with the laundry lately. She also has money from grandparents, etc. but rarely spends it. Hopefully, she will continue that habit as she gets older! 

#61 - What time do you get up?
On school mornings, I get up at 6:30am. On Weekends or days when I don't have school, usually around 7:30am.  My kids are late sleepers which is great on weekends and during summer vacation - not so much on school mornings. Megan has always been the earliest riser, though. She is almost always the first one out of bed on the weekends.

#45 - What did you do for your last birthday?
For my last birthday, I had a hotel slumber party!! 
Since her two sisters both have birthdays in August, they usually do pool parties. Last year, Megan complained that is wasn't fair that she never got to do pool parties because her birthday is in December. My husband came up with the "brilliant" idea to cash in some of his travel points and get a hotel room so she could have a pool party and slumber party. We let Megan invite 3 friends. They swam in the pool, we ordered pizza, had cupcakes, played board games, and it really was lots of fun. This year, we are keeping things a bit more low key.  

#83 - What are your best characteristics?
I am always happy!  I tried to get Megan to list some more, but she said she couldn't think of any. I can! Megan is smart, funny, silly, loving, and she cares about others. She is also a great big sister  - she and Emily have great friendship.

#73 - What do you do most when you are bored?
When I am bored, I watch TV, but I actually don't get bored very much. That's very true. As I said, Megan has lots of energy. She is rarely still and the only time she complains about being bored is when she has to be still, like in a waiting room or during church.

#41 - What time is bed time?
Mom and Dad make me go to bed at 8:30 on school nights. When it's not a school night I can stay up until 9:00. If I got to pick my own bedtime, I would probably go to bed about 9:30.  And, if anyone comes walking down the hall after all the kids have been put to bed, 9 times out of 10, it's Megan! 

#38 - If you could eat lunch with one famous person, who would it be?
You, Mommy! You're a famous blogger! I told her that just being a blogger doesn't mean I'm famous and she answered,  "Well, you're on Google and in a book. That means you're famous!" Gosh, I love this kid!!! 

Happy, Happy Birthday my sweet Megan!! You keep me on my toes and make me smile every day. You have a good heart and a boundless energy that will take you far in life, I'm sure. I love you bunches and bunches and I hope you have many more happy birthdays!!!

I told her to smile for a birthday pic and this is what I got which pretty much sums up my Megan!!!

I loved her answer about you and if Megan says so it must be right! Seriously, you are famous in my book too. And Happy Birthday to Megan 😉

Happy Birthday to Megan! Seens like I've known you for a couple years now so how did I not know that she and Christopher were the same age? He will be 10 on Sunday. I like your hotel slumber party idea just for the pool. This year though we will be at my mom's. Our birthdays are Friday, Saturday & Sunday so we will be doing a holiday/birthday drop in there.
I love that you interviewed Megan. I wonder if I can snag Christopher this afternoon to do the same. I'm tempted to go with the same ones since you weeded out the not kid friendly ones. If I make it to Tuesday Ten I'll definitely give you and Megan credit for doing all the research ;-) My favorite answer of hers is the last one. Christopher has thought I was famous but I think that thought is wearing off since wear obviously not rich. LOL!

Happy happy birthday to Megan!!! I love that she knows you're famous because you're in a book and on Google (oh the almighty Google). I hope her birthday this year is tons and tons of fun and the hotel slumber party sounds like a blast!!! And wow. 10. The photo of her closing her eyes and raising her eyebrows is adorable!!!

MamaRabia said...

What a sweet interview! She's adorable and sounds very similar to my Henry!! Happy birthday sweetie!

Charlene said...

What a lovely idea to interview your 10 year old! HAPPY BIRTHDAY from New Zealand :) I might have to do the same with Miss B in March ;)

Dana said...

Happy birthday Megan! That was an awesome interview. I really got a feel for who she is from this interview. I hope she is always able to say that her best characteristic is that she's always happy.

My daughter just turned 10, too! Both my kids would love to ride their bikes in any kind of weather, but we've reached that time of year up North where the bikes go in the basement so the cars can go in the garage. Happy Birthday to Megan!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks, Janine!! I think we are both famous - we ARE in a book! :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Well, I didn't realize they were so close in age, either!! She picked the numbers by flipping to random pages in a book. There are plenty that are kid friendly, but a couple (do you have any tattoos?) were not quite right. He might have fun choosing the numbers himself, but you are welcome to just go with these, too! Hope you have a chance to link up - would love to read his answers!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks! For her birthday, she wants to get her ears pierced, so we are headed there shortly after I pick her up from school. My oldest bet her $20 she would chicken out - goo thing nobody bet me!!! I'm more nervous than she is!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks, Rabia!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Megan thought it was weird, but fun! I told her that she's famous now, too because she's on my blog! :-)

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Me too!!! It was fun to interview her. Since she's the middle, she sometimes doesn't get all the attention she deserves. She knows I do they Tuesday Ten every week and I think she liked that she was the star of it for today!

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Thanks! Here in NC, we are still having some semi-warm days and we haven't had any snow yet, so the bike are still used frequently.

Kenya G. Johnson said...

Well since this morning my laptop is in the hospital (Best Buy Geek Squad) :-(

Tamara Bowman said...

Ah, to be ten! I miss it, honestly.
And I love that she said you for famous person. You are famous in the blog world, though!
And I want a birthday party like Megan had last year at the hotel slumber party.

Lisa @ The Golden Spoons said...

Well, I don't feel famous, but thanks! And, maybe BlogU was kind of like our hotel slumber party??? Just with much more uncomfortable beds!! :-)

Karen said...

Happy Birthday Megan...what a cutie she is and that flattery...she's a smart one.
