I hope you remember Brooke. I’ll bet you do. Well, you might remember my conversation with Brooke a while ago. Well, I’m doing another one. Part twooooo.
All right, I’m just going to start right off.
ME: Brooke …
BROOKE: Bye, Dorothy. I said goodbye to Dorothy.
ME: You did. Now, Brooke ..
ME: Do you lke glitter or shiny things?
BROOKE: Shiny things. And glitter.
ME: Now, Brooke.
ME: If you had to pick big or small, which would you pick?
BROOKE: Is that a sock on his nose?
She’s watching Elmo gets dressed and he has a sock on his nose. She always says that at that part.
ME: Yeah. Hey, Brooke, what’s that you’re eating?
BROOKE: Toasted toast.
I think that’s really cute.
ME: Who’s your favorite Sesame Street friend?
BROOKE: I like Prairie Dawn better.
ME: What’s that you’re drinking?
BROOKE: Juice that’s orange.
She means orange juice, if you don’t know.
ME: What are you watching?
BROOKE: Elmos’s World.
Her favorite show. She watches it ALL the time.
ME: Which one?
BROOKE: Sleep, getting dressed and teeth brushing. Who’s your favorite teacher?
ME: Mr D and Ms A. Brooke, right now is my turn to ask questions, OK?
ME: Do you like bouncy balls or …
BROOKE: YES YES!!
ME: … or Sesame Street friends?
BROOKE: Sesame Street friends! Bouncy balls AND Sesame Street friends. That means both.
ME: Do you like nightgowns oR PJs better?
BROOKE: YES YES.
ME: Brooke, which do you like better , nightgowns or PJs?
ME: Which do you like better, jeanie stuff or dresses?
BROOKE: Dresses. Do you hear that?
ME: What’s your favorite color other than …
ME: … other than pink?
BROOKE: I don’t know. What’s that noise? Knock knock.
ME: Who’s there?
ME: Oh no not this one. Banana who?
BROOKE: Knock knock.
ME: Groan. Who’s there?
ME: Orange who?
BROOKE: Orange ya gonna lock the door and let us through?
It’s a joke from Dora, but she changed unlocked to lock.
ME: Ha Ha. Brooke, how do you like to wear your hair?
ME: No, that means like pony tails, Piggy tails, braids, down ..
She said she likes to wear her hair up, but she really doesn’t. It’s just from a Rapunzel show she likes where Rapunzel says she likes to wear her her up, way up. And she thinks her hair is really super long like Rapunzel’s. (It’s not.)
BROOKE: So they can breathe.
She’s watching the astronaut on Elmo’s World.
BROOKE: Please don’t stop.
MAMA: Please don’t stop what, honey?
MAMA: Um, OK.
ME: Brooke, what’s your favorite drink?
BROOKE: All of them!
ME: All right, thank you Brooke.
Our interview is done. Mostly because I can’t get her attention away from the TV and it’s really frustrating.
BROOKE: It’s Veronica Monica!
I asked her to pause it and she screamed. ‘Noooooo!’ It’s so frustrating. I think I might try again a little later in the day when she’s not occupied by the TV or the computer or iPad or anything. In the meantime, Boo, I guess you already got your joke from Brooke. If I do another post later, I’ll give you another one.
Thank you mama for typing everything that we said.
