I’ve seen this meme do its rounds on Facebook and chatted to my friend Andrea about it and was we both thought it was a great ideas and I’m a massive sucker for interviews (I always used to play reporter in my grandparents garden and I’ve even interviewed Amy for the blog twice), I thought I’d sit down with Amy and ask her a couple of questions about me. I know, a risky undertaking when your opposite is a feisty 4 year old, but it wasn’t as scary as I thought and admittedly a lot of fun – mainly, because you have to write down exactly what your child says without prompting their answers. So there’s no such thing as “Oh but you know mummy doesn’t always drink wine, just on days that end in -day” or “Mummy always tidies up when you’re at nursery”. This one is all about the truth and nothing but the truth and while it may hurt at times (apparently all I do is work), I thought this was a really great way of finding out what your kids think about you at a certain age.
I’m thinking of doing this little interview every year as it will be fab to compare Amy’s answers as she grows older. I’m sure her views will change very quickly. I can almost imagine the “Oh mum, that’s annoying comments”, but it’s worth a try and maybe once she gets too annoyed with these, she can add some of her own questions or create her very own interview. Who knows! Now, let’s just dive straight in and see what my little lady has to say about me:
