    1. I didn't think they knew how much I loved them due to all my fish wife shouting but it's great to know that they do feel loved and cherished :-)!
      Ask yours and let me know what the replies are.

  3. That really made me laugh! I am not sure I would really want to know my boys answers... prob be a lot of 'mummy likes to buy clothes for herself' and not a lot else...

    1. I've stored the answers (here) and on my PC and I will ask them in 5 years time - suspect their answers may be very different!

    1. OMG of course no wine - I guess when they see how much I drink they just think it's water for grown ups?!!!!!!!

  13. I think you're doing a great job with your boys if the first thing they think of is how much you love them. Awww.

    I have to do this with my boys! This should be interesting - especially the answers from the little one.
