  1. Lol, it's always so interesting to hear how others view you, especially the pure honest of little people. There's a surprising number of knitting comments! ;)

  2. Oh I love this. What a lovely thing to keep note of.
    I love their answers too! :)
    I may have to do this with my little ones. xx

  3. Ok, you are officially supermum if your kids think soft play is your favourite place! Mine are very aware of my barely veiled hatred of soft play!

    1. Morgan has her own strange little way of viewing the world! I detest soft play, and tell them so, but Morgan likes it therefore thinks I must too. ;)


Penny for your thoughts? :)
