An interview with my children

An interview with my childrenFor me, blogging and school holidays just don’t mix.

I find my days are extremely busy as I care for, feed and try to have fun with my three girls. However, instead of getting stressed about it, I decided to cut myself some slack and take a short break from the blog over the past two weeks.

But then I had an idea! Why not combine having some fun with the kids while also putting together a blog post? Here is the result – an interview with my two older girls.

What’s your favourite memory?
Miss 6: On the plane to Queensland when I said “Everybody hold on!” as we were taking off and everyone on the plane laughed.
Miss 10: When my little sisters were born and I got to meet them for the first time.

From this, I gather my girls really like going to the beach and holidaying in Queensland! But most of all I absolutely adore how they truly seem to cherish time spent together as a family. Some of those answers really melt my heart.

I really look forward to conducting another interview with my gorgeous girls in the future. It might even be something I continue to do on a yearly basis as it would be interesting to see how the answers change over time and as baby grows I’ll be able to include her as well, which I’m sure will provide for some rather humorous answers.

Interviewing your children would also be a great idea for a memory book. Why don’t you give it a try, you might be surprised by some of the answers.

  1. Great answers, I love the honesty of kids! That was lovely how they described you, I’m pretty sure my eldest would describe me as cranky! School holidays and blogging don’t mix here either, the weather has also been gorgeous so we’ve been outside everyday just playing. So lovely.

  2. I love this – it’s such a great idea. My friend Jen from “A Sentimental Jamboree” interviews her kids every birthday and I think, at the start of every school year. I think these interviews are a virtual memory box, aren’t they? I love how Miss 10’s favourite memory is meeting her sisters for the first time – bless!

  3. Oh, so cute! How wonderful was Oddball??!!! Just quietly, I saw my husband tearing up a little when Oddy protected that injured penguin from the fox that tried to jump through the bathroom window. Such a great story and even better that it was true!
