Question Time

Last time Little E came to visit he hopped up on the sofa beside me and leaned forward expectantly.

"I think he wants you to answer his questions," his Mum said. "He seems to be carrying out some kind of survey. It was Granny's turn yesterday."

And so, in the interests of scientific research and understanding, I answered Little E's questions

New Cosmo Cricket from Gotta Craft and some scraps of Echo Park's Charming

- Do you like spiders?
- Do you like frogs?
- Do you like laptops?

and my personal favourite

- Do you like biscuits as much as I do?

I did ask him if he would like to offer me a free gift as a thank you for taking part. His Mum said I needed to give him a chance to collate the results first.


My page today has been entirely inspired by a wonderful Roree Rumph for Pink Paislee layout I pinned onto my Sweet Scrapbooking Pinterest Board.

  2. So cute - I wonder what answers he got? My youngest does this - she has a clipboard and goes round us all - writing it all down and then collates the answers!

  3. I love this! The page and the questions. Wouldn't adult relationships be easier all round if we just came out and asked people about their priorities and preferences? Would save a lot of time getting to know people ... ;-)

  6. Y'know what? With each delightful little story like this that I read, children grow on me more and more :p He sounds like a very bright bean, will he be producing some sort of academic paper based on his findings? ;)

  23. You wonder what goes through their heads sometimes don't you?! It was clearly important to him if he kept it going over several days.

  24. Totally in love with this. The floating elements remind me of all that stuff floating around in a little boy's inquisitive little head! I used to have one of those around, he kept me on my toes!

  25. What a fun layout! I'm curious about your answers.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Oh, yes. he's pretty cute. Okay, answers - I don't like frogs, but I do like spiders. I love my laptop, but I'd rather have a bag of crisps than a biscuit. I don't think he was too surprised by the answers. He has the measure of his aunt!

  27. I really wonder what goes on inside their little heads sometimes! And just for the record, I like them all, except spiders. And, I even try to be considerate of spiders ever since a conference roommate of mine (from Africa) explained the idea that spiders are our ancestors come back to tell us something!

  31. Great layout and I love the survey :)

  32. Really like the mixture of fonts on the page.

    Interesting selection of questions, love having small visitors. Was slightly sad not to see any small visitors today - although the adult time was much appreciated by us both too.

  33. Your first two made me smile - my kids hate it when I'm at that stage as I start handing out jobs and their dad says, "Don't let your Mom do anything - you do it!" :)

    Yeah on the dress - have fun wearing it knowing it was 75% off!

  34. What a fun page. I'm guessing Little E runs his parents ragged, so I'm guessing your willingness to participate in his survey was much appreciated.

  35. Your Little E stories always bring a smile to my face. Quick thinking there on his Mum's part. :)
