A Birthday Interview Printable

The last week or so, I’ve been completely consumed with working on the new website. Lots of checking and updating links, making sure photographs are showing and linking properly to various posts, updating tags and categories so old posts are easier to find… It’s tedious, and I’m not sure that I’m anywhere close to being done (haha!), but I’ve made a lot of progress.

Last night, I needed a bit of a break from the tedium of clicking, copying and pasting links, so I worked on getting at least one of the Birthday Interview printable ready for download. And I’m happy to say that it’s ready!

Obviously, I had to make some changes from the ones I made for my sons’, but I think I actually prefer the large number in the center…

Anyway, the printable version includes pages for ages 4-18, only because I figure that when turning 3, kids aren’t really able to articulate their responses to most of the questions, but that could just be my boys! At the rate my daughter is learning to speak, I’ll probably be having full conversations with her by the time she’s 3 whereas my boys were a bit behind in that department (though now, I can’t get them to stop talking!)…

All you have to do is download the pdf, print out the pages and fill in the blanks! (For some reason, the page with the number 4 is the very last page of the pdf instead of the first. I couldn’t figure out how to fix it.)

The printable is currently only available in blue, but what other colors would you like to see?

20 Questions – A Birthday Interview

All 3 of my kids were born in the month of February. Within a day of each other. 12 hours if I want to be silly about it. The twins were born on February 17, and my daughter was born February 18, 3 years later. This means that right after the holidays, birthday party planning must begin. Last year, we had recently moved to Korea and the boys hadn’t made any friends yet, and because it was Penelope’s first birthday (dol), we didn’t have a party for the boys. If you’ve read my post about Miss Penny Penny’s first birthday party, you’d know why I didn’t have the time or energy to do anything for my big boys!

One thing that I did make time for was writing down the boys’ responses to 20 questions I put together for their birthday interview. I typed it up quickly in a Word document and honestly, forgot about it. With their 5th birthday approaching, I finally got around to designing what will eventually be pages in a book. And since I have the template prepared, I can just change the age and type in the answers every year.

I wanted the design of the page to be something timeless so that when I ask the children the same questions when they’re 18 years old, the page won’t look childish. Plus, my design aesthetic is very simple, clean and modern, so really…I guess it’s all about me! Haha!

Here’s the final product! I’ll be making up a printable version as well in various colors that will be available for download (when I can figure out how to do that!).
