Interview with a 5yr Old!

I commented on Nicola's post over at Barefoot Mahala and adored her Interview with her 3 year old. I asked her specifically to do this myself without ripping her idea off LOL!

So Carson, age 5... Insists on being called Sir for this post by the way...

Q1: What is your favourite food? 
A1: Spaghetti Cheese 'cuz it's so tasty and mum is the best cook in the world.
Mum comment: Well, you know...! *blush*

Q2: Where do carrots come from? 
A2: Shops.
Mum comment: Fod Slap! More educating required!

Q3: Who is in your family? 
A3: My mum, my dad, my brother-bump, Angela & Blake my Goldfish and Shubunkin!
Mum Comment: He loves those fish!

Q4: What is your favourite colour? 
A4: Purple, because it's like dark pink but not so girly.

Q5: What is your favourite song? 
A5: Starships by Nicki Minaj, oh yeah! *Breaks out in song*

Q6: What makes you happy? 
Q6: Going to the Monkey House. Really! 
Mum Comment: A soft play area that we don't often visit :-/

Q7: What makes you sad? 
A7: Nothing. But what makes me worried is spiders because they're a little bit scary. I don't like their webs, also. Because they catch flies. And then the spider eat the flies you know. Eeewww, it's horrible.

Q8: What’s your favourite animal? 
A8: Giraffe. Because I like their spots

Q9: What is your favourite toy? 
A9: My teddy Patrick from Spongebob
Mum Comment: He made this himself at Build-a-bear last August. It has a strawberry heart and Carson's own voice inside of him. Best £20 spent ever!

Q9's Answer!
Q10: What is the best thing in the world? 
A10: My mum. You cook things lovely and you're the best mum I could ever have.
Mum Comment: *no payment was made for this answer!*

Q11: What do you like to do? 
A11: Paint, colour in, I like to also draw pictures too.

Q12: Who runs the country? 
A12: Errrrrr..... Ohhh this is hard. Is it God?
Mum Comment: we're not religious in this house... nor very political, clearly.

Q13: What does Mummy do for work? 
A13: Get loads of money by doing work.
Mum Comment: Ha! I wish

Q14: What does Daddy do?
