I sat the kids down and asked them these questions, writing down exactly what they said…
What’s the best thing about being 4 (and 2)?
Athena: I am going to be this tall and start school. I’m going to *names school* and am going to be in Butterfly class
Arlo: I’m Big!
What makes you laugh?
Athena: Arlo when he rolls around and pretends to be a baby
Arlo: you make me laugh (cheers, I think?)
Who do you love and why?
Athena: I love Arlo because he’s my best friend (said through tears as he’d just snatched a scarf off her)
What’s your favourite book?
Athena: I don’t have one. Maybe all of them?
Arlo: This one (he’s showing me an Elmer book)
Athena: Cheesy pasta and ‘bololaise’
Arlo: Apples. Bananas. Toast
Athena: Scream and Shout (the Will.i.am and Britney song… so appropriate, not!)
Arlo: Row row boat
Athena: Dresses, my sparkly river dress! (this is an H&M dress with glittery scallop patterns that she thinks looks like a river)
Arlo: Don’t Know
Favourite TV programme?
Athena: Luna Petunia, it’s on netflix
Arlo: Wishenpoof! (no idea, is this actually a tv show?)
Athena: My Babies
Favourite thing to do?
Athena: errmmmm, paintin’ and playdoh and sitting on the sofa
Arlo: Don’t Know
Well, that was enlightening wasn’t it! Perhaps in a year i’ll try it again, though I do ask Athena a series of questions every year on her birthday, and will do the same with Arlo when he’s three!
I was tagged by The Mum from Brum, absolutely ages ago now, but I didn’t think Arlo had the comprehension to answer the questions till now, and lets face it some of his answers are still a bit vague! I’m tagging Lesbemums, Teen Tween Toddler, Lamb & Bear & Mum to a Monster.
Can’t wait to hear what your little ones have to say!
