An interview with my 2-year-old

One of the best things about having a 2-year-old is the conversations. My little girl has become so incredibly chatty over the last few months or so. In fact, if she’s awake, she’s probably talking. I thought it would be fun to interview her. Although it wasn’t the easiest of conversations (like most toddlers, she has the attention span of a gnat) I loved listening to her answers.

On with the interview…

1) How old are you, Jasmine?

*She counts on her fingers… “One… two… three…”

“I’m not three. I’m just one.”

Me: I think you’re two.

“Nooo, I just one.”


2) What’s your favourite bedtime story?

“Ticky Octonaut”

{She’s a referring to a book called ‘Tickly Octopus’. She requests that we read it to her every night before bed, followed by We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.}


3) What does Daddy do for work?

“Ummm, Dadsy goes shopping.”

{Daddy works in Web Development!}


4) And what does mummy do?

“Mummy does baby.”

{Arrrghh! #mumguilt – Jasmine has definitely been feeling a little pushed out lately as Elowen is very clingy.}


5) What’s your favourite colour?

“I like Orange.”


6) What’s Your favourite animal?

“I like pink.”

Me: No, your favourite animal?

“I like turtle. Lots of turtles are grumpy.”

{OK then.}


7) What makes you happy?

“Tortoise makes me happy.”

{She’s really diggin’ on reptiles today.}

“And baby makes me happy.”

{She’s talking about Elowen. ❤}


8) What makes you sad?

“Dinosaurs make me sad. I like dinosaurs!”

Me: But they make you sad?

“Yeah, they scare me!”


9) What’s your favourite song?

She completely ignores me. She’s taken the belt from my dressing gown and is spinning it around in the air like a lasso.


{Moving on…}


10) Who is your favourite superhero?

I like Spiderman. He is super strong.”


11) Who is your best friend?


{This is the first I’ve heard of ‘Ryan’ – I’m assuming it’s a boy from her nursery class.}


12) Where do you live?

“In our house. It keeps us warm.”


13) Where is your favourite place?

“I like my home!”

Me: Not the park?

“No, too wet park.”

{We walked passed the park earlier today and I told her the park was too wet for us to go in.}


14) What is your favourite food?

“I like pineapple.”


15) What are you good at?

“I got 4 wheels that spin around. It’s very bumpy. I fall off. I hurt my knee.”

*She points to the muddy stain on her knee.*

{She fell off her scooter earlier.}


16) What’s your favourite toy?

“I like all toys.”

Me: But which toy is your favourite?

*She runs over to her box of sticklebricks.*

“Let’s build an aeroplane!”

And so we build aeroplanes with sticklebricks and that concludes our interview! :)

    Ahh this so cute, I loved reading her answers. My little one is too young to talk but I’m looking forward to the day that he can (not that I’m wishing his life away! Haha)

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 10:36 pm

      Haha, I know what you mean. It is lovely when you can have conversations with them, though. x

    This is so lovely! They are so funny at this age. Rosalie is 2 now so I might have to do this too xx

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 10:35 pm

      Oh you should do it with Rosalie. Two-year-olds comes out with the funniest things!

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 10:34 pm

      She sure is!

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 9:53 pm

      It’ll definitely be a lovely thing to look back on! x

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 9:48 pm

      She is a proper cutie! x

  3. Avatar January 26, 2017 / 2:59 pm

    Aw, this is just so adorable. I love the way toddlers talk, going from one random thought to another. Made me laugh about daddy going shopping. You’ll have to do it again next year to compare her answers.

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 9:27 pm

      She’s always convinced daddy is out shopping when in actual fact he’s at work! I’m definitely going to ask her the same questions again again next year! xx

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 9:14 pm

      I know – I wonder how she’ll answer them a year from now! x

  4. Avatar January 26, 2017 / 5:02 pm

    Haha! Love it when they get really chatty! Come out with the funniest things at that age! x

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 9:13 pm

      They really do – I never know what she’s going to come out with next! x

  5. Avatar January 26, 2017 / 9:42 pm

    Aww what a cute interview they say such funny things though at this age.

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 10:21 pm

      They really do – she makes me laugh lots with her expressions and turn of phrases. x

  6. Avatar January 26, 2017 / 10:03 pm

    Aww so cute! I love listening to conversations with little kids!

    • Jenna January 26, 2017 / 10:32 pm

      They do come out with some brilliant lines! x

  7. Avatar January 27, 2017 / 2:06 pm

    Ha ha this is hilarious – love the insight into their little minds! :) I have mum guilt over the baby too!! #littleleaps

    • Jenna January 27, 2017 / 2:12 pm

      I think it’s impossible not to feel mum guilt as we just can’t give them (the older siblings) the attention they were once used to. It’s a big adjustment for us all. xx

  8. Avatar January 27, 2017 / 2:49 pm

    I love their conversation skills at this age! But what turtles are grumpy?! #littleleaps

    • Jenna January 27, 2017 / 4:43 pm

      I have absolutely no idea what she was on about! :’) x

  9. Avatar January 27, 2017 / 4:43 pm

    awww I love their answers at this age- half nonsense and half just so beautiful!

    • Jenna January 27, 2017 / 5:09 pm

      Haha, exactly that! :) x

  10. Avatar January 27, 2017 / 9:18 pm

    Aaaw how sweet – I wish I’d done something like this with my two x x

    • Jenna January 27, 2017 / 9:46 pm

      It was fun to interview her. I’m so interested to see what she answers to the same questions a year from now! :) x

  11. Avatar January 28, 2017 / 8:31 am

    Aw this is so lovely! Her answers are so cute! X

    • Jenna January 29, 2017 / 1:37 pm

      I’ll be so interested to see what her answers are next year! x

  12. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 6:29 am

    Super cute! You’ll have to do some digging on this Ryan chap :-) These are the best posts – recording stuff you’ll forget in a year! I do something similar. #marvmondays

    • Jenna January 30, 2017 / 10:49 pm

      I have been digging – he is a boy from nursery! ;) I love recording this kind of stuff. x

  13. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 7:05 am

    This is so sweet. I love the though process of little ones, it’s hilarious. Thanks for joining us for #marvmondays

    • Jenna January 31, 2017 / 12:29 pm

      I know, they’re so random. I’m sure it all makes perfect sense to them. Thanks for hosting. x

  14. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 8:32 am

    Aw she’ s so gorgeous! My 3 year old did this and her’s were pretty funny. I love the way they have random friends and what they think Daddy does for a job!! xx #marvmondays

    • Jenna January 31, 2017 / 12:29 pm

      I know – this week it’s ‘Ryan’, last week it was ‘Frankie’ and the week before that ‘Owen’. Should I be worried?! Haha. xx

  15. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 9:00 am

    Kids provide us parent bloggers with the vast majority of our material so sounds only fair that they take centre stage. Could start a series of interviews this! #MarvMondays

    • Jenna January 31, 2017 / 12:27 pm

      Haha, exactly – I’ll have to come up with a new set of interview questions as I just loved her responses. x

  16. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 1:35 pm

    Awww this is brilliant! I keep telling myself to do my interview but he keeps running away from me – I can’t pin him down for long enough to ask more than 2 questions lol I will try harder! Lol… love your little girl’s answers, some are hilarious! My fave is: “I like turtle. Lots of turtles are grumpy.” :) #MarvMondays

    • Jenna January 31, 2017 / 12:26 pm

      Thanks, Manny! I asked a couple of questions to her at a time throughout the day. :) x

  17. Avatar January 30, 2017 / 5:38 pm

    Ah this is so cute! If I did this with my 18 months old every answer would be “no” or “dadeeeee” ha #marvmondays

    • Jenna January 31, 2017 / 12:25 pm

      Haha, oh bless! I don’t miss the ‘No’ phase!!

  18. Avatar February 1, 2017 / 6:43 am

    This is adorable. The only answer my two year old will give to any question is ‘no’, unless you’re asking her what she wants for a snack, then she’s full of ideas!

    • Jenna February 1, 2017 / 11:57 am

      Haha, that sounds about right Alana! :) xx

    This is a lovely little interview, you little girl is very sweet. Fantastic to find a fellow orange fan! #marvmondays

    • Jenna February 1, 2017 / 1:49 pm

      Thank you, Becky! Orange is an interesting choice! ;) x

  20. Avatar February 1, 2017 / 4:32 pm

    Haha, this is so funny and cute to read. I cant wait until I can have coversations like that with Isla #littleleaps

    • Jenna February 1, 2017 / 5:33 pm

      It’s such a fun age when they can start having proper conversations. You just never know what they’re going to come out with next! x
