My kids have been asking a lot of questions about what mummy has been doing with the laptop every night recently.
Don’t worry, my kids are not feral, I don’t let them stay up all night, but they regularly get up to tell tales on each other and as soon as they see me with the laptop open, they are straight in there to see what they are missing.
I explained a little bit about blogs and that I use my blog to write lots of lovely thing about them. Both of them asked if they could write on my blog, but seeing as they can’t write yet, I wanted to think of another way to get them involved.
I thought it would be a great idea to ask them ten questions each about their likes and dislikes, and these were their responses.

I thought their answers were pretty cute, although some a little questionable. Caitlin has never expressed an interest in sheep before, so I don’t know why they are suddenly her favourite animal. I asked Neil how regular an occurrence was being punched to make him sad, and he said he’s never been punched, so when I asked him why it made him sad he just shrugged
I’m looking forward to reading through this with the kids when they are a bit older. It would be a lovely idea to do this once a year and collect the answers in a little notebook.
On a final note, my wonderful hubby designed a new header for my blog. I think it looks great, I’m glad he knows what he’s doing because I could certainly have never done it! What do you think of the design?
Have you ever done something similar with your kids? If you have I’d love to hear about it?
