Forgive me - it's been a long, hard week (and please nobody remind me that it's still only Wednesday)...and I haven't had a second to sit down and write a thing. Well, that's not entirely true...I have had a few spare moments, but I'm a terrible procrastinator and have instead decided to sit, contemplate life and twiddle my hair.
Needless to say, I have achieved absolutely nothing and my brain has turned to mush.
But rather than leave you postless until I put an end to my procrastination, I have decided to lift an idea I saw on A Modern Mother by way of Wife of Bold and WAHM-BAM. You see, it turns out that I'm not the only one stealing ideas...
So here it is, THE Interview - my girls on their Mummy...
By Renée (almost 5)
And Edie (2 and 2 thirds)
1. What is something Mummy always says to you?

Renée - Doing the right stuff (You got it girlie).
Edie - Papa (bless - hubby will be pleased about this one)!
3. What makes Mummy sad?
Renée - When we don't do the right stuff (She knows me too well).
Edie - Me (Oh Edie honey - that's not exactly true).
4. How does Mummy make you laugh?
Renée - When you do jokes (no bribery was involved here...I swear).
Edie - (Pulls a funny face and says nothing).
5. What was your Mummy like as a little girl?

Edie - Pillow (Hmmmmm....like I said, slight lapse of concentration).
12. What is your Mummy not very good at?

Edie - Eating paper (Dubious).
13. What does your Mummy do for her job?
Renée - Look after us and before that she was a Television Producer (Wow - I had no idea she even knew I had a life before her. Now that was interesting).

14. What is your Mummy's favourite food?
Renée - Lettuce, tomatoes and cucumber (Oh purlease Renée - and there I was thinking you were on the ball).
Edie - Chocolate cake. (Now that's more like it. How to get Edie's attention - talk about food).
15.If your Mummy could have one wish what would it be?
Renée - To have another daughter (Oh Renée you've let me down - DO NOT let your Father read this - it is SO not true).
Edie - To eat chocolate cake. (what did I say)?
And that concludes the interview.
In the meantime, do pop over to Brits in Bosnia who is hosting the British Mummy Blogging Carnival which showcases the best posts from the last couple of weeks. There are stories to make you laugh, cry and ahem, never want to have children.
