I saw these questions on the blog Harmzie’s Way a little while a go. The idea is to ask a series of questions about yourself to the kids. The original by Harmzie has 22 questions. I did ask my kids the 22, but to fit in with my theme I opted for 10 questions and a bonus one because it was so funny. I have written the responses in age order 10, 8, 5 and 3. The baby just goo’s every time I talk to him, so he wasn’t included.
As much as I would have liked to have edited some of the answers, I resisted. After a bit the 3 year old went completely mad and was making very random comments (egged on by his siblings). Next time I would do him on his own.
1. What makes mum happy?
8: Having us around.
5: Seeing dad and being at home
3: Not breaking the pencils.
Me: Pretty accurate, although breaking pencils is actually not that big of an issue in our house.
2. How does your mum make you laugh?
10: Saying toilet humor style jokes.
8: Saying pop offs
5: Spinning me around.
3: Does funny faces
Me: I have now been publicly outed as enjoying toilet humour.
3. What does your mum do when you’re not around?
10: Breakdance on the kitchen floor.
5: Goes on the computer.
3: Goes to the shops.
Me: Close to the mark, but I actually only break dance in my dreams.
4. What is your mum really good at?
10: Being bossy.
8: Planning dinners and getting them ready.
3: Playing ball with me.
Me: Honest assessment!
5. What is your mum not very good at?
8: Working in the garden.
3: Playing trains.
Me: Everyone’s a critic! I thought my punt kick was developing.
6. What does your mum do for a job?
10: Organise us.
8: Read stories
5: Look after us
3: Cook food.
Me: At least they realise that I work.
7. If your mum were a cartoon character, who would she be?
10: Porky Pig
8: Tom (from Tom and Jerry)
5: Spongebob Squarepants
3: Car crash (Have no idea what this means and he wouldn’t elaborate. Beginning of the random comments.)
Me: Think I align with Spongebob the most.
8. How are you and your mum the same?
10: We laugh at the same jokes.
8: Same personality.
5: Both have blue eyes
3: Big pigs.
Me: Besides my 3 year old’s response, I liked what they had to say.
9. How are you and your mum different?
10: You are fussy about your clothes.
8: I eat mandarins and you don’t.
5: Different hair.
3: You have long hair.
Me: By fussy I think he means matching.
10. How do you know your mum loves you?
10: You say darling.
8: Lets me play on her iPhone.
5: Give lots of kisses.
3: Sings me songs.
Me: Nice cross section of my personality.
And the bonus question which I found hilarious. I do enjoy my 10 year old’s sense of humour.
11. What does your mum like most about your dad?
10: He’s chiseled (hysterical laughter by all)
8: He does gardening.
5: He helps her.
3: He’s strong.
Me: I do love all those things about him.
If you ask your kids some questions, let me know as I would love to read it. They do say stuff about you that you normally wouldn’t! 🙂
