What do your children say? I was scanning Pinterest the other day (find me here) when I came across a blog post idea that I thought was great! An interview with your child on their birthday every year. It’s a way to document their answers and see how they change as they get older. I thought this was a fantastic idea so I decided to interview Katie and see what answers she gave me. When I decided to interview her, she was laid in bed watching a video on her tablet. This is her way of having quiet time in an afternoon.
Interview with Katie – 7th February 2017
What is your name? “Katie”
How old are you? “3”
How old is Mummy? “12” – Not quite, love
How old is Daddy? “13, I know that because you told me he was older than you so that makes him 13” – Your logic is correct, your answer isn’t.
What is your favourite colour? “Pink”
What is your favourite toy? “Erm…Rabbit” (A comforter she’s had since she was a baby)
What do you want to be when you grow up? “A trainer, so I can drive trains”

What’s your favourite TV show? “Peppa Pig”
What’s your favourite DVD? “Rapunzel” (Tangled)
What’s the best thing about Mummy? “Your cuddles”
What’s the best thing about Daddy? “He spins me around really fast”
What’s your favourite drink? “Apple juice”

What’s your favourite animal? “A Cow”
What’s your favourite fruit? “Grapes”
What’s your favourite thing to eat at lunchtime? “Cheese sandwiches”
What’s your favourite thing to do outdoors? “Play football”

Do you like doing questions like this? “Yes, but you didn’t ask me who my favourite ever person was!”
Who’s your favourite ever person? “I don’t know”
This interview was so fun to do, it’s interesting to see what answers they give and how easily they can go off on a tangent. I love how I could ask the same set of questions when she’s 4 years old and get completely different answers. Although, I bet if I asked Katie these questions again tomorrow I’d still get different answers too!
Why don’t you ask these questions to your children and see what they come out with? I’d love to hear what they say!
