From the mouths of babes #84 – An interview with Jessica (at nearly 5)

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!


A big thank you to everyone who linked up last week. I loved Molly’s insistence on her cousin saying “Peas” shared by Conversations with Hank and Family Makes‘ son’s theory on how to make people think you’ve travelled back in time.

I was recently tagged by White Camellias to take part in the #LittleOnes tag – a series of interview questions for your children which was started by My Petit Canard.  Thank you Pat for tagging me in this. I interviewed Jessica over the weekend and will do the same with Sophie at a later date.  Here are Jessica’s answers to the questions.


How Old Are You?

Four – no, five! (not quite – it’s not her birthday until next week!)


When Is Your Birthday?

I’m not sure. My birthday will be after Grandad’s (no, that’s Sophie’s birthday!)


How Old Is Daddy?

Umm, five? I don’t know.


How Old Is Mummy?



What’s Your Favourite Colour?



What’s Your Favourite Food?

Umm, ummm, oh I know! Banana!


Whats Your Favourite Drink?



Who’s Your Best Friend?

E (her best friend from preschool)


What’s Your Favourite Programme?

Kate and Mim-Mim (that surprised me – I would have said Go Jetters!)


What’s Your Favourite Song?

Frozen – no, I mean Numtums  (The Numtums theme tune is a current favourite – I think I preferred Let It Go though!)


What’s Your Favourite Animal?

A unicorn (good choice!)


What Is your Favourite Book?

Stick Man.


What Are You Scared Of?



What Makes You Happy?

You (awww, thank you Jessica!)


What Is Your Favourite Thing To Do?

Do some drawing.


Where Is Your Favourite Place To Go?

Go to Legoland.  Mummy, please may we go back to the moon? (the Premier Inn where we were staying for the weekend)


What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

A chicken!


What Do You Like Helping Mummy Do?

Do the washing (that’s news to me!)


What Do You Like Helping Daddy Do?

Do his work.


What Is Your Favourite Thing About Mummy?

I’m not sure… I like to cuddle her.


What Is Your Favourite Thing About Daddy?

I like cutting the grass with him. (I think she might have been thinking of the time she helped him cut Grandma and Grandad’s lawn using the ride on mower)

  1. Brilliant answers from Jessica! I love that her favourite animal is an unicorn. It made me LOL when she said she wants to be a chicken when she grows up. Hilarious. Thank you so much for accepting the tag. x

    1. Thanks Pat – I have no idea where the chicken comment came from but it made me laugh too! Thank you again for tagging me in this – it was perfect for #ftmob 🙂

  2. Aw that’s a gorgeous little interview! It will be so lovely to look back on in years to come too. Thank you for choosing our post from last week. It was short but sweet!!

    1. Thanks Caroline – I’m sure if I asked her the same questions today I’d get completely different answers! 🙂

    1. Thanks Alice. I do love the way the girls call Premier Inns “the moon” – it sounds so much more exciting. We’ve now taken to calling them that too!
