What do you think you'll be able to do when you are 6?  Get a better score on the MAP test
What are some things you're excited about doing when you're 6?  Be in first grade, Rising Stars, Stage Kids
What are you scared of?  Heights
What's the best thing about you?  I'm pretty
What are you good at?  Balancing on the tire at the playground
Who is your best friend?  Emma (a friend from school) and Adelie

Does the fact that she wants to do better with academic testing balance out the fact that she thinks the best thing about her is being pretty??  We might need to really bring focus to those other positive traits we're trying to instill so that the fact that she's smart, brave, kind, generous, thoughtful, helpful, and sweet might come to her mind next year before being pretty.  Not that I should really over-analyze a top-of-her-head answer to a 6 year old interview, but that answer made me feel like I've failed just a little bit.
