I was trying to come up with a different blog post to do, and thought as a big part of our blog is to do with being parents, that it would make sense to introduce the boy that made that possible!
Grayson is 2 (3 in April) and such a sweet little soul, that while we were playing I decided to do a little mock interview with him and ask him some questions to see what answers I would get.
So without further ado!
- What’s your name?
“My name is Grayson.”
- What nicknames do you have?
“Thomas” *he then proceeded to laugh, because this isn’t true in the slightest* “Mummy and daddy call me G and sweetness”
- How old are you?
“I’m 5” *I asked him if he was sure on this, and he said he was*
- How old are mummy and daddy?
“You’re 5” *I asked him again if he was sure on this, and he said he was*
- What’s daddy’s job?
“He works for Liverpool”
- What’s mummy’s job?
“You work” *He isn’t wrong, but I don’t blame him for finding what I do boring*
- What job do you want to do when you grow up?
“A nurse and I want to work with granny and Grandad”
- Where do you live?
“In April, because April is my absolute best”
- What’s your favourite colour?
- Who is your best friend?
- What is your favourite song?
“I like nursery rhymes” *I was slightly disappointed with this answer, because he’s got a very varied music taste. So I was hoping for a more interesting answer*
- What’s your favourite film?
- Which Cars film?
“I like all of them mummy”
- Whats your favourite tv show to watch?
“CBeebies, but my favourite is the swashbuckle one.”
- If you could go on holiday anywhere, where would you go?
“To my trains” *I asked if he was sure, and he said he was. So that’s the cheapest daily holiday ever*
- What’s your favourite food?
“Garlic bread and Yorkie pud”
- What doesn’t Grayson like to eat?
“Broccoli, peas, carrots. All the vegetables I don’t like”
- What makes you happy?
“Blind bags and trains! I do like trains, I’m obsessed with trains. I keep going on about grandads trains” *He then proceeded to tell me about trains for 5 minutes*
- What makes you sad?
“When I go to nursery, because I can’t remember everyone’s names”
- Are you scared of anything?
“A scary thing. Because I don’t like scary things, because I go ooooh, I don’t like it”
- What are you good at?
“I’m good at daddy’s records and I’m good at nursery”
- What’s something mummy always says to you?
“Calm down & try again and you are such a good boy Grayson!”
- What’s something daddy always says to you?
“Calm down and take a deep breathe”
- What is love?
“Love is Grayson” *he’s not wrong”
I did try to ask him more questions after this but he just kept saying “no more questions mummy”, because he has such a hard life. I might have to do this more frequently, because it’s so interesting finding out certain things from a child’s perspective.
If you haven’t done this, I would definitely recommend doing an interview with your children. If you have any questions you think we should ask Grayson in future, put them below!
