Ivy, what’s your favorite…
Color? – Pink and Black
Animal? – *looks around the room for inspiration* “Not sure.” (This from the girl who has been begging me for years to re-start the favorite posts. Maybe she wasn’t expecting such a tricky one…)
Farm Animal? Do you have one of those?- “Maybe, yes. Yes, I like the ducks”
Bird? – Eagles or owls
Food? – Ice cream
Clothes? – Sweatpants, sweatshirt and a tank top. (No kidding… Covid has been rough on all of our wardrobes but Ivy lives in this 24/7.)
Dog? – “Goose, but don’t tell Trip.”
Cat? – Cassie
Thing to do? – Read, hang out with you or watch anime.
Thing to do inside? – Read or watch anime (delivered with a sigh, apparently this question was repetitive).
Chore? – “Laundry or washing dishes.” (Hooray! It’s true she does laundry and washes dishes!!!)
Time of day? – Morning (Weirdo.)
Place to go? – Grandma Mary’s
Song? – I have lot. It might be Dacing in the Dark. (This must be true since she walks around with one ear plugged into music dancing and lip synching along 95% of the time.)
Flower? – Tulips
Thing about school? – “In quarantine? I don’t have to change my pants and I can do school in my pajamas. In general I really like my teachers.”
Friend? – “Natalie (can I say my top three?) Hyja, and Kyla.”
Movie? – Brave
Thing to do with Clara? – “I like playing card games with her. She’s the most willing out of everyone to play.”
Thing to do with Jane? – “I like when we are both in the same room and we are both reading and it’s quiet. I also like playing in the hammocks or silks in the garage with her.” (Hmmm… that first answer speaks volumes…)
Thing to do with Dad? – “Play board and card games or hiking.”
Thing to do with Me? – “I like playing ecologies with you and I also like swimming when you are coaching.” (She likes it when I coach? Amazing! Maybe it’s because I don’t outright tell her I like to watch kids suffer like John does when he coaches?)
Sport? – Swimming
Book? – The lunar chronicles plus Heartless (That’s like 6 books btw…)
Author? – Marrisa Myer or Cassandra Claire
Meal? – Brunch
Thing to do in the car? – Read
Thing about winter? – Skiing!
Season?- “Fall” (Why?) “because swimming starts and it’s also really pretty.”
Part of living during a pandemic? – “I don’t like the pandemic… I get to play more games with you guys.”
What do you want to do when you grown up? – “I. Don’t. Know.” (Someone has to choose her first high school classes and this question is looming it’s scary head quite often in a more real way than it ever used to.)
When you get older what kind of problems to you want to help solve? – I don’t know that either.
Anything else? – One of my favorite classes in school is Spanish and I also really like art.
Last time I asked Ivy her favorites she was only 9 years old, take a look back and see how things have changed!
