Interview with a Gremlin

Interview with a Gremlin

I was tagged agggges ago by the lovely Emily at My Petit Canard to interview my 3 year old – Life According to a 3 Year Old! You can read Emily’s post here.

At the time the gremlin was not yet 3, so I decided to wait but now is the time for sure.

We sat down, we questioned her and here are her answers. It was a lot of fun but we did have to re-phrase loads of the questions to help her!

 How Old Are You?


When Is Your Birthday?

August (she could give me the date but thought best not publish!)


How Old Is Daddy?

3 (haha right!)

How Old Is Mummy?

I don’t know (better than some random old age!)

What’s Your Favourite Colour?

Pink (obviously).

What’s Your Favourite Food?

Lasagne (I so thought this would be ice-cream so cred to you Daddy!)

Whats Your Favourite Drink?

Orange Juice (surprised at this, as she usually drinks milk and water the most.)

Who’s Your Best Friend?

Teal (nursery bestie.)

What’s Your Favourite Programme?

Nemo (we asked her this about 10 times and she kept saying Nemo. No clue why as not watched it for a bit.)

What’s Your Favourite Song?

Let it Go (God help me!)

What’s Your Favourite Animal?

A rabbit (she did enjoy looking at these last weekend!)

What Is your Favourite Book?

Funny bones (I love that she loves this. I used to love the cartoon as a kid).

What Are You Scared Of?

Not spiders!  Dragons, fire (?) Brocolli??? (Yes the latter few were her answers.)

What Makes You Happy?

Mummy (said with a tonne of enthusiasm) then….Daddy after some coaxing from Daddy (what a flipping liberty!)


What Is Your Favourite Thing To Do?

Eat chocolate fingers (more like it gremlin.)

Where Is Your Favourite Place To Go?

On holiday (we had a blast this year.)

What Do You Want To Do Today?

Play with Teal.

What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

Optician (she just came with me to watch me get my eyes tested and we have played opticians since.)

What Do You Like Helping Mummy Do?

Change a nappy (think she is future planning!)

What Do You Like Helping Daddy Do?

Drilling (yes she has used the drill with Daddy!!)

What Is Your Favourite Thing About Mummy?

Going to Bella Italia with you (she did not get this question at all!)

What Is Your Favourite Thing About Daddy?

Going to the park with Daddy (ditto to above!)


Where Do You Want To Go On Holiday?

To Greece (we went to Rhodes this year.)

What Do You Want To Do On Holiday?

Have ice-cream (standard.)


What Are You Going To Pack in Your Suitcase?

Quack Quack, Bunny, Owl….(ok you get the gyst; nothing useful at all!)

We had a giggle doing some of these questions, as her answers were a bit random and unexpected. If you fancy asking your little one these questions, go for it! Just let me know when you do.

    Haha this is brilliant! Loved her answers to the “favourite thing about Mummy / Daddy” questions. It’s like a little trip into the mind of a three year old. I was just thinking about Funny Bones and wondering if you could still buy it. I loved it as a child too! xx #marvmondays

    Haha, I love this idea. Kids have the best answers, Archie is so close to being at the age where I can do this with him. Though he’s talking alot now, he completely blanks me whenever I try to ask him too many questions. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo
