Here we are back again for this year’s instalment of ‘An interview with my children’.
Last year during the September school holidays, I was finding it difficult to make the time to blog so I had the idea of asking my children a series of questions to record moments of their life, their hopes, their dreams and some of their favourite things. It worked out so well that I decided it would be interesting to ask the same questions each year to see how their answers change as they grow.
These school holidays just flew by – seriously, where is this year going?! – but I had time at the end of last week to quickly interview my girls so I thought I’d still pop the answers up on the blog now as they begin Term 4.
Once again, only my two older girls participated this year but I really look forward to when I can include my youngest daughter as well and hear answers from all three of them … I’m sure it will make for some pretty funny and rather cute responses in years to come!
For now, here’s the 2016 edition with Miss 7 and Miss 11.
