Sunroom Interview: Lola Moon

Lola Moon 9 years old

Tell us about yourself.

I love sports. I love art. My favorite soda is an Izzie. I love playing with my Mom and my sister. When my sister smiles it always brightens up my day. I don't like talking about tsunamis. My favorite book series is Junie B. Jones. I have a club called the Sparkle Buddies. I love going to the park and playing with my friends. My favorite toys are my lizards and dragons. My favorite colors are orange black purple and white.

What is love?

Something that aches in your heart. I think.

What do you think the best thing about your family is?

How loving and caring they are.

What do you think your family needs to work on?

Communication. Talking more about our feelings in family talks.

What do you think makes a good parent?

Someone who is nice and compassionate to their kid and calms down when they do something wrong and doesn't just let their emotions out really deeply. Someone who is very loving to their kids. A fun person, an active person, someone who likes to learn. Someone who has had experience with kids so you know how to handle it. Most of all being fun and creative.

What do you think the meaning of life is? Why are we here?

To learn and experience things and to make more people on this Earth so we have more solutions to things. And your family and the people you care about.

Tell us something about being a kid that's really hard.

Understanding things. Kids don't understand things...that's why we have teachers, because we don't understand things...and when we don't understand things in school it's very frustrating. I've had three friends who got held back in school because they didn't understand, and that's hard because you can't see your friends then.

Tell us your favorite part about being a kid.

You get to do a lot more fun stuff than grownups do. You have playdates, clubs, activities, you don't have to worry about rent or bills or anything. You just worry about your life and learn and have fun and be a kid.

What do you like about yourself?

I'm a caring person, I don't criticize people. I care for the people around me.

What do you think you need to work on?

Listening to my parents. Not having them have to tell me things 500 times.

How do you get through hard times in your life?

I ask people for advice and try to see if they can help me. I try and talk it out when I feel sad or upset. I think of things I can do to make myself happier. Like I'll draw a picture of a happier environment when I feel depressed.

Who is the prettiest mom you've ever seen?

I'm not sure. You're one of them. You are in the top three.

This is possibly the most awesome thing I have ever read. Best interview questions asked, and answers that sound like they came from a wise old monk. Best ever.

I loved this interview -- she is such a "Lola Moon" -- never was there a name that fit a child better!

She is wise, and seems calm, not caught up in worry about what comes next. Glad you made the top runs in the family.

Mwa said...

What a beautiful interview. I need lessons. I can't imagine that kind of responses coming from my kids. But then the oldest is six. I have a bit of time there. Gorgeous.

Anonymous said...

Oh, I wish I could join up with the Sparkle Buddies! She's amazing. My goodness remind me again why some people don't like children?

Annie said...

Hi Maggie,
I smiled reading Lola's answers, and I felt, a bit, I think, the pride you must feel in how intelligent, caring, expressive, and perceptive she is. Like someone else said, we know where she gets it from!

Barrie said...

I loved reading this. What a very special person you are, Lola!
