I decided to interview my five year old son Jeremy. He was happy to oblige and answered my questions quite succinctly. Not sure where the idea to holiday in Brazil came from but I’m thinking it was probably Peppa Pig.

Alan works in software development but is quite a handy man at home so I’m sure that’s where the spanners came from. I wasn’t surprised to find that he wants to be a fireman or that his perfect day would involve train rides and eating cake.


The Questions:

How old is Mum?  


How old is Alan? 


What is Alan’s job? 

Working with spanners.

How old do you have to be to drive a car? 


When Juliema (grandma) babysits, where do you think Mum and Alan are?

 Out where you want to go.

What does your brother do to annoy you?

 Elliott annoys me when he is crying when I am in bed and trying to sleep.

Where would you like to go on holiday?


Where do babies come from?


How much money should the Tooth Fairy leave per tooth?

 One dollar.

If you were a Mum what would you let your children do that I don’t?

Do anything that they want to do. But no driving cars.

What do you want to be when you grow up?

A fireman.

What does mum always say to you?


What would your perfect day be like?

We would play lots of games outside and play hopscotch and eat cake and go on the train to the city.
