Josh (aged 14) on the subject of me...

A few weeks back I noticed a few people posting on blogs and Facebook a series of questions they'd ask their (usually small) children about themselves.  The answers were very sweet.  I thought it would be fun to try it on my teenagers and see what I got.  I think you will find this post mildly amusing (I know I did when we did it!)  So without further ado here are Joshua's answers to the same questions...

How old is your Mummy? 49
What is your Mummy's favourite food?A cup of tea (Josh, that's not food) Er, Um, Ok... Lamb
How does your Mummy make you laugh?  I don't laugh with you, I laugh at you
What does your Mummy do for her job? Works in a call centre (Not any more I need to explain to you about my job some time!)
What was your Mummy like as a child? Quiet...and a good kid
How are you and your Mummy the same? Neither of us have spatial awareness (and I can't drive either)  Ooh! the cheek of the boy!
How are you and your Mummy different? We have different colour eyes
What makes me sad?  A cat that dies, a family member that dies, a friend that dies - even the TV, that guy in Downton Abbey that died He was referring to Matthew and the car crash!
What does your Mummy do when you're not around? Scrapbook and go out
If you're Mummy were a cartoon character who would she be? Squidward...Why? Because he's really picky about everything too
By this point I was thinking I love the honesty this questionnaire is given me...Out of the mouth of babes eh?!

What is your Mummy's favourite thing to do? Scrapbook
What do you and your Mummy do together? Watch TV and I'm forced to go on long walks with you OK I'll get you the Childline number now!
What makes you proud of your Mummy? Look how awesome I am and you made me (Love this answer!)..Yeah, you're good at raising kids
What makes Mummy happy? (And Josh you can't answer Scrapbooking for this one) Spending time with your family

So thanks Josh for that insightful view into your head.  I was planning to do the same survey with Alex...just need to think about that for a while lol!

I'm sure her answers will be very different. the differences will be very interesting too. I'd go for it and please publish on her too.

Oh, this is brilliant!

Reminds me of the time my daughter had to write about me for a wall display for Parent's Night "My Mum likes lying on the sofa and eating chips"...

Sian said... son pointed out my lack of spatial awareness the other day too

I've seen a few friends do this on FB. Josh's responses are so funny.

With teenage boys myself I loved these answers - I'm sure some would be the same from mine .... including How does your Mummy make you laugh? I don't laugh with you, I laugh at you,
yes - this is exactly the sort of thing mine would say x

A Monday morning wave to you. What's the saying ..."out of the mouths of babes". It will be interesting to ask the same questions next year to see if there is a different set of answers. Hope you have a great week ahead.

I thought about doing it with D too but quite glad I don't have a boy! - they are classic answers - love them!
