Lauren & Miss M xox


  1. They really do exist in their own little, rather wonderful, world.

  2. Very cute :-) I think I might try this with my 3 year old.

    1. You totally should Sarah! And then write a blog post and share it so I can read it! :)

  3. I do an interview with each of my kids on their birthdays and the answers are always amusing!

    1. That's such a great idea Claire!

    2. Are the questions the same every year Claire?

    3. They are Jo, it is amazing to watch their answers evolve! Here they are (hope you don't mind Lauren) -

    4. Of course not! I'll pop over and have a read myself :)

  4. I love the idea of this! Can't wait til my little man is old enough to participate with answers other than Banana!

    1. There was the perfect age to give it a go!!

  5. And not a single mention of poo or wee which is all my 2 and 4 yo's seem to want to talk about lately!! Kids say the darndest things, heh!

    1. They sure do... I was just getting frustrated with all her "I don't know"s!! I'm like "yes you do!!"

  6. So cute! I should try this with Miss L and see what we come up with!

    1. You totally should Beth! I'm gathering some funny ones from the March mums group to compile into another post. If you give it a go send it through! :)

  8. I got inspired to give this a go!

    Me: Hey Flynnie, Can I ask you some questions?
    F: Can I’ve some more water?
    M: Sure, then can I ask you some questions?
    F: No.
    M: Oh, why not?
    F: I don’t like questions.
    M: Can we have a chat?
    F: No.
    M: Why not?
    F: I don’t like to. (Runs off to play)

    Well, that didn’t go according to plan at all. Will try that again tomorrow.
