Happy 4th Birthday!

Today is my oldest daughter's fourth birthday.
{Insert standard "they're getting so big!" weeping and wailing.}
She spent the weekend with her Grammy and we picked her up after shopping and lunch at Chick-fil-a. She played with her new toy all afternoon and got to watch dumb YouTube videos about opening Kinder Eggs and taking the packaging off new toys. (My kid can't be the only one fascinated with those kinds of videos... right?)
We skyped with Grandma and when Seth got home we had pizza and cupcakes with unnaturally colored pink frosting that she picked out herself. She opened her presents and played with them and refused to let Hailey share because she didn't have to and she didn't have to clean up and she got to stay up unusually late.
In short, a perfect day for a brand new four year old.
But I know why you're all really here, and that's the birthday interview. Behold:

Actual questions and answers:
(Some of her answers had me scratching my head in confusion, so I inserted my own commentary in parenthesis.)

2. What is your favorite toy? Tractor Duplos
