The Half-Year Interview Series – Little J asks Mommy

I want you to tell me about the very fun day on Christmas day. 

Well your brothers and sisters woke up round 6 am. You were still asleep. I carried you into the living room and you woke up very slowly. We opened presents and then had breakfast.

I like it when we had a Christmas tree, but now we do not. We threw it outside the window. Why did you do that? That makes me sad. 

Well we couldn’t keep the Christmas tree forever. It was already dead and the pine needles were getting everywhere. I threw it out the window so we wouldn’t spread pine needles all over the halls and stairwell. I’m sorry that makes you sad.

And once upon a time there was a little girl named Evie and she lived upstairs. Where did she go?

Well they had to go back to the US. They live in Minnesota now.

One two three four funf sechs seiben … wait no it goes … Eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf, sechs, sieben, acht, neun, zehn, elf … What are these numbers? 

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, and eleven

How is my girl, Penny? She was fun and where did she go? 

Penny is doing very well. She is still living in Massachusetts.



  1. You threw the tree out the window? That is the smartest move ever! Must remember when I live in an apartment building again. Love the shout out to pens. Are grilled cheese sandwiches different in Germany?

    1. Totally did. The kids didn’t believe me. Best part it landed right in the compost bin. Win!
      Grill cheese are pretty much the same although no cheddar. We use butterkase and gouda with a little bit of spicy mustard.
