Amy’s belated birthday interview

Amy is 3, belated birthday interview

While going through my drafted posts and planning new content for the coming weeks, I noticed that I have completely forgotten to post Amy’s yearly birthday interview with you.

It was her third birthday a little over a month ago, so I’m suffering from a serious case of mummy guilt right now, but I thought I’d still share this year’s interview with you. Better late than never, right?

It’s quite fascinating to compare it with last year’s birthday interview. I expected the odd change in her answers (you can’t love In The Night Garden forever!), but I was quite surprised to get so many detailed answers from Amy this year. Her interests and favourites vary quite a bit from those in last year’s birthday interview and some of her answers even saw me speechless. Who’d have thought that we’d have a die hard chicken fan on our hands? I blame Amy’s great-grandad, who seems to have infected her with his passion for his feathery friends, but let’s see what she comes up with next year!

By the way, if you fancy doing an annual birthday interview with your little one or maybe a back to school interview, check out Erin Heaton’s DIY blog Lansdowne Life. Erin has kindly shared a printable of this birthday interview questionnaire, so it’s super easy to get started and record those milestones and favourites. Simple download the file (there are different colour options available) and print off or download and fill in using Adobe Acrobat and add a photo of your choice. It really is that easy!

Do you record your children’s milestones and development? How do you do it?

  1. Ooo I love doing it like that – what a great and concise way to record things. I started a blog for Kitty and one for Ozzy which I *try* and keep updated. A little place with nothing else but writing and photos about them – really helps me to feel like I am documenting their growth!
    PS. Glad she hasn’t seen that episode of Mastermind when the chap answered the same daft thing to each question – mind you I’d have loved to have seen the look on your face is she replied ‘Do you wanna build a snowman’ to everything!

    • Haha, how irritating would that be? But we’d have probably ended up singing the song. Amy has this weird habit of only singing the last word of each line, a bit like those fill the gap tests that you did at school. My mum couldn’t stop laughing when she did it in Germany x

  3. I love this idea, I must admit I am rubbish when it comes to documenting bits. I do make sure I have photos printed out each year (usually months after the actual day itself)
