You may remember, when T was three, a little interview I did with him to tell you all about the things he likes to see and do (and eat!). It was a lovely experience as not only was I hearing his vocabulary come along but I was learning more about his personality.
Annoyingly, I completely forgot to do it last year – which I’m actually quite sad about, as four was quite an interesting year when it came to T’s developments. It was also the year, in our opinion, that he started to become an independent little person with particular likes and dislikes. Nevertheless, now that *cough* two years have passed, I thought I’d do it again, now that’s he’s the big zero five and share the differences in comparison to three. I’m hoping to make a regular thing of this now that he’s quite the chatterbox!
Just like last time, we sat down after breakfast and asked him the following questions, writing down exactly what he said. In addition, being the fact that we’re still in lockdown here in the UK due to the Coronavirus, I thought I’d ask him a couple of special lockdown-related questions too:
T at Five
What’s the best thing about being 5?
It’s great and really fun, because 5 is greater than 4. I’ve lost my tooth since I turned 5 and I’m taller.
What makes you laugh?
When I say “nudey rudey” and when I fling my pants at your head.
Who do you love and why?
I love you and mama, because you give me the best kisses and cuddles.
What’s your favourite book?
Cucumber, Peppers, and Hummus. Oh! CHEESY PASTA!!!!
Baa Baa Black Sheep.
My Spiderman T-shirt and shorts.
Favourite TV programme?
Numberblocks and Paw Patrol.
I like playing with lorries at the moment and animals.
Favourite thing to do?
I like playing games, especially Tantrix or Quirkle.
How do you feel about being in lockdown?
Sad, because I miss my friends and family. I miss going to my school.
Is there anything you like about lockdown?
Being able to play at home more.
What don’t you like about lockdown?
Parks being closed.
What are you missing whilst in lockdown?
Playing and eating with all my friends.
What have you learnt whilst being in lockdown?
Doing maths and counting.
Do you have a message for other children in lockdown?
I like all of your rainbows and Thank You for staying inside.
Typically, he’s not quite the chatterbox when under pressure, but I’m loving how his answers are changing every year.
