From the mouths of babes
First of all I wish all the Mothers out there a Happy Mothers Day! I hope that you woke up to the two best things on earth – cuddles and coffee. <3
Since it’s Mothers Day I thought it would be interesting for this blog post to come from the “mouths of my babies” after all drunk people, kids AND leggings never lie .. 😉
I asked the same set of questions to both kidlets (separately) and I was actually quite surprised that their answers were quite similar even though Isabelle (7) would be super descriptive in her answers and Elias (5) got to the point succinctly, in fact the longest answer he gave me was six words long.
If I remember I’ll try and do this again in subsequent years to see how things change as the kids and I both get older.

For the records, my favourite thing to do is sleep which would also mean one of my favourite places is my bed, but since neither one of my kids seems to like sleeping that much I didn’t expect them to know that, although maybe I should let them in on my secret in the hope that they won’t wake me up so often. 😉
Till next time
