I have been feeling a bit nostalgic looking through old blog posts from when I first started blogging. I never wrote as many personal ones as some bloggers do (which is a shame really) but even so I found a few gems that made me chuckle to myself. Children grow up so fast its lovely to have a few memories of the things they said when they were little to return to.
I found one from 2012 about their favourite animals, eldest loved bunnies because they can dig underground and not die from lava....
Youngest adored lions because they have medicine for a stomach ache, they draw with pens and they go in a car...
A memory that would have be lost if I had not documented it down.
Another one I liked was this post about how children think my littlest answered why do tigers growl? Because they have a face! They do make me laugh.
And for that all-important question we struggle with “what came first chicken or egg?”
[Youngest] the egg, mummy one can fly it on their wing, for a little bit, then went on a van then went on a rocket for a little bit loads and went weeee!
Why does it get dark at night? [Eldest] because it’s 7 o clock (you can tell I was quite regimented with bedtime!)
Why do people get married?
[Youngest] Because they are old
I also asked my eldest his own twenty questions “If your mummy becomes famous, what will it be for? ” “On telly for colouring in” - What makes you proud of your mummy? “Because she is silly” (charming!)
How tall is your mummy?
I feel I had a little insight into their lives by asking them questions, so do the same with your children, document a few answers and treasure them. I promise you will enjoy returning to them as much as I am.
