First Grader Interview

So my big buddy started school today. I saw on some blog that the mom did a back-to-school interview, and so I copied the idea...with middling results.

What’s your name? Rhett, Everett (you should know this!)

How old are you? 6 (YOU SHOULD KNOW THIS!)

If you could be any age, what would you want to be? 70, because then I would get to tell you what to do because I am older than you.

What’s your favorite color? Orange

What’s your favorite book? I have two: Magic Tree House and Berenstain Bears.

Favorite food? Besides candy? You know it: Pizza.

Anything you definitely will NOT eat? Poppy seed pasta

What do you want to be when you grow up? Why? I have thousands of ideas.

How do you think first grade will be different than kindergarten? A little harder.

What advice do you have for kids that are nervous about starting kindergarten? You'll meet new friends as soon as you get there.

Anything you’re worried about in first grade? No.

What are you excited about in first grade? I am just excited to be in it..

What’s your favorite subject in school (writing, reading, math, science, social studies, etc)? Maybe science.

What’s one thing at school that you’re really good at? I don't know.

Favorite thing to play at recess? Skylanders with Genesis. Sometimes saber tooth tigers.

If you were principal of your school what changes would you make to it? I have no idea.

Do you have a best friend? If so, describe them, or describe a really good friend of yours. What do you like about them? I don't know.

What’s one thing you’ve learned to do lately that you’re proud of? Jumping into the pool.

Describe what a typical day is like for you after you come home from school. I forgot.

If you had one day to do whatever you wanted, what would you do? Just go home.

Describe something you really like about yourself that you’d never want to change. I love being able to make stuff with paper.

What’s something most people don’t know about you? I love nutcrackers. [Whoops, sorry buddy but I already revealed that to everyone.]

If you had three wishes what would they be? I wish I had a couple thousand nutcrackers. I wish pizza and hamburgers were the only meals I ever had. I wish I did not have a brother. (sorta, sometimes).

What are three words to describe your family? If it's Ollie: baby, silly, crazy.

Can you describe what your parents do for work? I don't know. Mom is a statistician, but no idea what that means.

What’s the best family trip you’ve been on? Going to Utah.

What do you like about living in Maryland? I don't know.

What don’t you like about living in Maryland? I do not like that I live far from family. And we do not get that much snow.

That's it. He's a better interview the second time around, but still a pretty funny little kid. Who is also not great at mini golf, but doesn't quite know it.


  1. My kids just made me watch the golfing video three times in a row. haha. And that interview is great. It's exactly what Henry would say. "I don't know" to everything.

  2. Yay, love the video. Hilarious. I love, love, love the interview. Seriously, wha'ts not great about it?! Nothing. It's perfectly Rhett - well what I know of Rhett. :) I hope he has a fun day!

  3. I am so glad that there were at least a few "I forgot" or "I don't know" answers! So cute. I'll have to do this with M. Mid-semester, because you know that's the schedule I'm on... :)
