An Interview with T at Six (ANOTHER Lockdown Special)
From the age of three, we introduced a cute little feature on this blog where would interview T every year around his birthday. We used it as an opportunity for readers to find out a little bit more about him, as well as for us to document changes big and small.
Over the years, we’ve found out his eating habits and favourite toys, as well as a few of the funny things he likes to say and do. The only year we missed was when he was four, which was gutting as four was a funny year for him developmentally, but we decided to pick it up again last year.
T is a funny little human, with little intricacies that you only notice with time. He has a wicked sense of humour and is always so passionate about his greatest loves. At the moment it’s Lego, Hot Wheels and Pokemon. If you’d like to read about T turning six you can find that post here.
