From the mouths of babes #143 – An interview with Sophie (aged 4)

From the mouths of babes is a weekly linky which invites you to share a post, old or new, about something your children have said. Those adorable mispronounced words, the glimpses into their imaginations, the blunt observations – whatever it is, I’d love to hear about it!


Thank you to everyone who linked up last week.  The Next Best Thing To Mummy made me chuckle with her tale about a little “diamond” thief.


This will be the last #ftmob linky of 2017. Jessica is due to go into hospital next week for her heart surgery and so I will be taking a step back from this blog during this time. I will be posting updates about Jessica’s heart surgery over on her blog at


I’m finishing this year off with another interview. Having interviewed Jessica a couple of weeks ago, this time it is Sophie’s turn. I interviewed Sophie last year with these questions and you can read the original post here to see how her answers have changed.

If you have any posts about something that your children have been saying lately, please do come and link up. The linky opens each Monday from 6am and closes on Friday at 11pm so there is plenty of time to link up your posts (old and new posts are welcome!). Please add the badge below to your post so others know where they can also link up (the badge code is below). I will also try and share posts via Twitter – please use the hashtag #ftmob and I’ll do my best to retweet them. I also have a Pinterest board and will be sharing posts here too.

Looking forward to reading what your little ones have been saying!

  1. I’m glad I managed to call in to the last of these linkys of the year. I’ll be thinking of yourselves and Jessica over the coming weeks, I wish you well. I’ve a slightly Paw Patrol obsessed 2 year old here, I’m pretty sure Robert and Sophie could share notes on the subject, it’s constant babble regarding pups and their adventures in my house.

    This is the linky that i’ve wanted to join in with for a long time and you’ve given me the inspiration to make a note of the weird and wonderful things Robert has been saying. I’ll save up a nice long list for you in the new year, hopefully. Good luck x

    1. So glad you managed to link up too and will look forward to hopefully reading some of the things Robert has been saying in the new year too. Thanks for joining in 🙂
