The Interview That Made Me Come Out Of Blogging Retirement

When I saw the hilarious results of this interview on Bern Morley and the other greatfunnywonderful blogs (Jodie and Thea), I couldn't resist doing my own. It's kind of like the best kind of blog chainmail!

This interview took place while the kids were playing in the bath. Alex is 4yrs 4mths, Maya is 2years 2 mths (notice the nice symmetry there?) Also notice Maya gets a bit sassy which I am starting to think is more her temperament than her age...

1. What do you want to be when you grow up?

Alex: A superhero!

Maya: Cat.

2. How old are you?

A: 4

M: 1 (she has been saying this for six months. Four months ago, it was true. She hasn't caught on that 2 is the new 1)

3. How old am I?

A: 33 (correct)

M: 2 (maybe a delayed correct response to previous question? Either that or she's learning to count!)

4. How old is Dad?

A: 38

M: 8 (Ok so the counting's not going so well...)

5. What do you like most about pre-school/day care?

A: Playing with my friends

M: House. (Doesn't it make you wish you were 2 and could get away with such non-sequiturs?)

6. What do you like to do outside?

A: Run around and get pretend baddies with my friends.

M: No. House.

7. What do you like to do inside?

A: Everything. Play with robots.

M: Hello! Walking. So much.

8. What is your favourite toy?

A: Lego transformers and robots and Spiderman and a Ben 10 watch. (clearly writing his Christmas list aloud as he only actually owns one of those things)

M: Cat.

9. What is your favourite game?

A: The Ben 10 snap.

B: Jumping so higher.

10. What is your favourite TV show?

A: Spiderman and Ben 10 (again, watches neither of these)

M: Play School (good to see her comprehension of the words 'TV show' is accurate if nothing else)

11. What is your favourite movie?

A: Spiderman

M: Tinkerbell (again with the improved comprehension!)

12. What is your favourite book?

A: A Spiderman book. (Slightly disappointing given the 527 other books he owns, 236 of which are read to him nightly; but he seems to be working to a theme here)

M: Yes.

13. What is your favourite colour?

A: Red and blue and green and white and black (It's good to have options).

M: I like red.

14. What is your favourite number?

A: Let's start with letters. My favourite letter is S. My favourite number is one hundred.

M : Cat number.

15. What is your favourite food?

A: Stroganoff and spag bol.

M: Stroganoff (this is true, she would eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner if she could)

16. What is something that is really good for you?

A: Swinging on branches and things and that big spiderweb thing at the park. (well I suppose if you were Tarzan...)

M: No.

17. Who is your favourite friend?

A: Bayden and Bailey and Ky.

M: Horse eating bubbles. (this is not as esoteric as it sounds, she was playing with a horse in the bath at the time, which was indeed eating bubbles).

18. What time is bedtime?

A: 4'o'clock (yep we run a tight ship)

M: Cats. Sleeping. No not bedtime!

19. What time do you wake up?

A: 6.30 (got that right)

M: Morning. (fair call. Don't get pinned down to specifics)

20. Anything else you'd like to add?

A: Playing with Bailey's bumble bee transformer toy is actually my favourite thing.

M: I want to get out now. Myself. (tries to hoist own leg over bathtub. Interview abruptly halted).



  1. That's hysterical! I did one today too. So much bloody fun:)Your kids sound totally adorable!

  2. Oh so cute. Gosh I miss my babies. I thought of interviewing the 18 and 16 yo ... maybe I will. LOL Haha word verification Catalma - stayed with the cat theme of Maya.

  3. That was hysterical. Thanks for sharing. God they sound cute xx

  4. thanks!! so funny! *tummy hurts*


  5. Very cool, but I have to ask... what's with the letter S?

  6. I have a feeling it's got something to do with Spiderman, Superman and Superheroes! He writes his name: AlexS (the S standing for his alter ego!) x
