Interview with an 8yr Old!

You may remember our interview with Carson when he was 5 years old, if not you can read it here, which made for a few parenting fod-slaps and giggles! Well, he turned 8 last week so here we go again, let's see if he's changed much...

Q1: What is your favourite food? 
A1: Cheeseburger 'cuz McDonalds tastes quite nice.

Q2: Where do carrots come from?
A2: Plants

Q3: Who is in your family? 
A3: My mum, my dad, my brother, me, my nin, my grandad, my nan, my died grandad, my little nan and little grandad and my cousins and aunties and stuff. You know, the usual. 
Mum Comment: Detail much?!

Q4: What is your favourite colour? 
A4: Purple, because it's reminds me of sugar

Q5: What is your favourite song? 
A5: This is tricky but I'm going to have to say... uh, lemme thnk about this one. Little Mix - Hair. It makes me feel a little cheerful and happy.

Q6: What makes you happy? 
A6: Anything really. But one in particular thing is my birthday. Because I get cards and presents and sometimes money too!

Q7: What makes you sad? 
A7: Nothing. Oh, when I hurt myself.

A10: Gullivers World

A12: The Queen. Her jubilee was in 2012 and she was 86.

Q13: What does Mummy do for work? 
A13: Business.

Q14: What does Daddy do?
A14: I honestly don't know.
Mum Comment: Oh dear!

What I've learnt from this is that he still loves cheese and giraffes, whilst his favourite colour is still purple after all these years! 

As I'm sure is typical with many an 8 year old of today, he's very into his tech but still loves to play with his spongebob playsets which tells me he is still, definitely, my little boy! Carrots no longer come from shops but plants, which is good enough for me. The Queen runs the country now, instead of God - close enough if you ask me. Clearly the school has taught them a lot from when the jubilee occurred! 

I really should explain what both hubby and I do for a living because it's looking pretty obvious that he's clueless. This really surprises me because he often asks about our day and listens intently... or so I thought! I can't wait to ask these questions again in another 3 years... if he'll still be talking to his Mum by that age.


  1. Fab interview. Sylvia loves mcdonalds too but her fav is fish fingers. So strange! I'd be interested to know what you think about ipods for kids as we were considering getting one for sylvia for christmas? She often uses my iphone "a lot" when i need it and I was thinking it could be a solution. She likes to make her own videos, take pictures and watch youtube. Any advice?

  2. I'm impressed he knows how old the Queen is. Looks like he's a happy boy!

  3. Wow he is so smart. I am well impressed.

  4. He looks like a lovely little boy and this is great to look back on in the future!

  5. Awww this is so cute! Great answers and I love the fact that nothing really makes him sad! :)

  6. I love that little mix song too - always puts me in a good mood!

  7. Haha Purple reminds him of sugar, that's fantastic! I also love his take on mum and dad's jobs, he's adorable.

  8. Oh I love this idea! Definitely going to do this in a couple of years x

  9. Aww this is adorable. Why does purple remind him of sugar though? And I love that he calls Giraffe's JAZZY!! So cute xx

  10. Loving the idea of a jazzy giraffe! Such a cute post!!

  11. He is too cute! I also like spongebob too! haha

    xoxo, Candice

  12. Great interview:) He is such a clever boy!

  13. I loved this! It's always great to hear the opinions of kids and to see how they can change!

  14. He's so smart. You must be very proud of him.

  15. Haha what a fun idea! I love it! My kids would love to do this - well, my 5 and 3 year old! H x

  16. This is such a great idea! Always good to look back when they get older and see how they have changed
