I’ve been slacking on Bean Sprout’s “Birthday Interview” video, but I plan to do it tomorrow so I can get *her* answers to the following questions. In the meantime, here’s a snapshot of Lilo, through my eyes, on her 5th birthday.
Nicknames: Lilo, Lilo Bilo, Lee
Names of Her Imaginary Friends: Agleckla Eckie (who drives her own car), Aglecklie Eckie (Agleckla’s mischievous little sister)
Sprout’s Claim to Fame: Pooping behind the tree at daycare (not to be confused with the time she peed behind the tree at school)
Known For: Hitting first; asking questions later, her “accent” (read: speech impediment), never wearing underwear, swearing
Favourite Activities: Singing, swimming, drawing
Loves: Dragons and unicorns
Hates: Wiping her butt
Favourite Songs: “1 2 2” (Chandelier by Sia), “Clock is Ticking” (Stay by Zedd & Alessia Cara), Cake by Flo Rida & 99 Percent (as performed by The Fitness Marshall – “shove it in your face/rub it on your body”), I Can Make Your Hands Clap by Fitz and the Tantrums, Another One Bites the Dust by Queen
Funniest Misheard Lyric: “She’s a beast/I call her Karma” (from Katy Perry’s Dark Horse) hilariously misheard as “She’s a beast/From Ottawa”. Side note: I corrected her once on the “She’ll eat your heart out/Like Jeffrey Dahmer” line – I can’t remember what her version was – and explained that Jeffrey was cannibal serial killer. Now Sprout and her sister ask me questions about Jeffrey Dahmer all the time, like “was his mom mad when she found out he was killing people and eating them?”.
Favourite Movies/Shows: Dragon’s Edge, Shark Boy and Lava Girl
Favourite YouTube Channel: Talking Kitty Cat
Favourite Toy: Any one of her sister’s toys she’s told specifically not to touch
Calls her Dolls: Honey (“my honey”, “my honies”)
Favourite Game We Play Together: Pretending her “honies” are sick when it’s time for her to go to bed so I will give them multiple rounds of medicine and tuck them in a million times before I lose my patience and tell everyone, alive and stuffed, they have to stay in their own damned beds.
Greatest Wish: To own a motorcycle
Favourite Way to Sleep: Naked
What she Wants to Be When She Grows Up: Cop
Bday Presents This Year: Tablet, Dragon’s Edge book, FurReal dragon, plastic dinosaur, dinosaur Lego, fairy Baby Alive doll
