The Toddler Quiz
Remember all of those quizzes in women’s magazines? The ones that told us if we were eating right, needed to break up with our ‘bad news boyfriends’ or had oily, dry or combination skin?
Maybe they are still around. I mean, I’m a mom so the only thing I read these days are books with Mickey Mouse on the cover.
Go ahead, quiz me on that guy. Pretty sure I would achieve stalker status.
I recently ran across this online quiz for toddlers that other moms were posting on their blogs. The series of questions seemed simple enough so I decided to quiz the tiny human that lives at my house too. I even added in a few questions about pirates and giants to keep his interest in between all of the boring stuff.
Out of the 50 questions I intended on asking, we got through 37 before his attention span ran out – a huge victory if you ask me.
So here it is, an intriguing look into the mind of my two-year-old…
- What do you like to do outside? Play ball!
- What makes you happy? Mama! (Swoon)
- What makes you laugh? Funny faces! (makes funny face and laughs hysterically)
- How old are you? Two!
- How old is mommy? Two!
- How old is daddy? Five!
- What do you want to be when you grow up? Big!
- What are you really good at? Food!
- What’s the best thing mommy cooks? Cookies!
- What’s your favorite song? Twinkle, Twinkle!
