What is your favorite color and what is your favorite thing to do?

“My favorite color is pink. My favorite thing to do is to go to the mall and get some cookies. Chocolate chip cookies. At the mall.”

What do you want to be when you grow up?

“I decided what I want to do before I become a momma. I want to be a doctor and help people! Even if I don’t know how I’m going to do that yet. Because being a doctor is a lot of responsibility. Even though I don’t have much time to prepare… Oh yeah! I’m not sure how I’m to figure out how to have a lot of ingredients. Doctors have a lot of ingredients. Don’t worry I’ll work on it.”

Why do you like yourself?

“I like myself because I get to spend time with family.” 

What does it mean to be human?

“If you are a girl, if you are a big girl, you are a human. Well, being a human is hard work. You gotta go to work and pay the bills, just like being a doctor.”
