An interview with my children 2017

An interview with my children 2017 - Ever-changing Life of a Mum

Ah, the school holidays are here again and yesterday was such a cold, rainy day that it seemed the perfect time to sit down with my girls for my annual ‘An interview with my children’.

This is the third instalment of this series in which I ask my girls the same series of questions each year, usually during the September school holidays.

This year was extra fun as Miss 2 joined in, providing us with some rather humorous answers. We had so much fun and laughed a great deal during this interview, particularly with Miss 2’s responses. I also love seeing how my older girls answers are changing (or in some cases not changing) over the years.

Keep on reading for the 2017 edition of my interview with Miss 2, Miss 8 and Miss 12.

  1. How lovely to collect these answers every year! I do a similar thing but they’re questions about how the kids view their mum and dad. I might have to start doing this, too!
