New Year's Questionairre
Asking the boys some questions at the beginning of the year as a record seemed a good idea. Simple questions about their favorite things and what they enjoyed about 2013. Simple. Or so I thought.....
What is your favourite colour?
Big man: Red
Middle man: Red
What is your favourite TV programme?
Big man: Spongebob
Middle man: My favourite colour is red!!!
Who is your best friend?
Big man: I don't have one.
Middle man: Red, red, I said red!
What is your favourite toy?
Big man: Lego. (This is probably as we had the Duplo out and were playing with it.)
Middle man: I don't want any. I love my red coloured brick!
What was the best thing you did in 2013?
Big man: Lapland UK
Middle man: I don't want to tell you anything, I just want to show you my favourite colour is red. Big man what is your favourite colour?
Big man: Blue. (Contradicting his original answer.)
With that I felt I was totally wasting my time with a child obsessed with red and another that just says the first thing that comes into his head without even thinking. It was a nice idea and I will try again next year, by which time little man will be able to join in with the random answers or colour loving!
Do you do questionnaires with your children at New Year or their Birthdays? If so when is a good age to start? I'm thinking not 3 with middle man.
