    Hi Susanna – hope you don’t mind, I’ve pinched your idea. Pop over and have a read!

  2. 15/07/2009 / 09:26

    What a cute idea! Reminds me of Bill Cosby’s “Kids Say the Darndest Things.”
    Sleep.Drink Coffee.Work = That pretty much sums it up for me!
    Fourty four – Fifteen – Four = 25 years old (sound about right?)

    I would try this, but I once asked the kids what various people were best at, and it’s made me nervous.
    Granny was declared as best at playing games. Daddy was declared as best at giving hugs. Mummy was declared best at checking email.
    Gutting.

    I loved this so had to interview my little one too. I’m glad to see work features high in yours as mine did too.
    Cheers, Chloe

    i thought it was weird that for both yours and mine, the older ones knew our ages, but the younger ones thought we were younger.
    i do like that your not good with the maths, from a math reject on this end!

  6. 01/07/2009 / 21:15

    Hilarious! I loved the question about your age best!

  7. 01/07/2009 / 06:33

    I started to get really worried about the “tall” comment, i.e. do they really think I’m that big? Think I will start slouching…
    The other comment that worried me is their response to my favoutite thing to do — sleep, coffee and work. Hmmm. Not good. But so true at the moment.

  8. 30/06/2009 / 20:19

    this is flipping brilliant! You should add your actual answers (e.g. how tall ARE you??) lol!

  9. 30/06/2009 / 09:24

    Oh I want to try it with the boys when they are older!
    That’s brilliant I love it ๐Ÿ™‚
    BTW Congrats for your position in the Cision Top 10!

  10. 30/06/2009 / 08:02

    That’s very funny, I dread to think what mine would say!

  11. 30/06/2009 / 07:40

    This is a lovely idea how sweet are your girls too. I think i might have to try this one out ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. 29/06/2009 / 20:59

    Brilliant, that must make your heart swell a little (or a lot!)
    I may have to try it but answers could be very politically incorrect!

  13. 29/06/2009 / 20:43

    I love those answers, especially about how tall/old you are!! So cute x

  14. 29/06/2009 / 20:27

    I interviewed them all separately, because I knew the older ones would influence the younger ones. I actually went youngest to oldest.
    The only answers I didn’t like were that it’s obvious I spend too much time on the laptop!
    Try it!

  15. 29/06/2009 / 19:30

    Oooh I wonder what it would be like to be a fifteen feet tall fifteen year old. That would scare the boys ๐Ÿ˜€

  16. 29/06/2009 / 19:28

    Love that! I’m deffo going to do it. Did you do it with them altogether?

  17. 29/06/2009 / 16:52

    Is Alexandra in trouble a lot, then?
    What great answers, and a clear view into children’s views on mummy. Not sure I’m brave enough to try it after the “Attentioner” episode!

  18. 29/06/2009 / 15:03

    44, 15, 4 – quite the range ๐Ÿ™‚ Very cute. I am afraid to try it on my three – they are 12, 13, and 16.

  19. 29/06/2009 / 13:44

    Two of them agree with the maths though!
    And two agreed with work!
    Fabulous. Love it! RMxx

  20. 29/06/2009 / 11:47

    Oh, that’s so sweet. I might have a go with William sometime.

  21. 29/06/2009 / 11:27

    Lovely! Wonder if Rosemary would be up for it – may try.

  22. 29/06/2009 / 09:10

    What a great idea. Not sure I’m brave enough to try it with the boys…

  23. 29/06/2009 / 08:46

    I love it. Particularly love that you are not very good at running fast. Too sweet!

  24. 29/06/2009 / 08:39

    That was a great interview! Not sure which parts you don’t like – I think you came out very well there! You might even enter the Guinness Book of Records for the tallest person.

  25. 29/06/2009 / 08:36

    This is one of the sweetest things I’ve seen in awhile! Kids are so brutally honest and hysterical!
