My blog turns 1 today! Yes, I have my first post to prove it.
To mark this special occasion, I have here an uncut interview with a very special guest. Yes, she’s my most loved daughter. The one and only. Vera.
Take it away, girl.
Interviewer: Why does your mummy blog?
Vera: Because she likes to write about me and di-di (little brother) lor. Di-di is very cute, he can’t talk yet, but he makes lots of noises and he likes to blow bubbles out of his mouth. Boootttttt boootttt…like this. I think she likes to write and share her thoughts…or maybe daddy and me don’t listen to her enough. We are always playing!
Interviewer (wiping saliva off her face): Do you know that your mum’s blog name was inspired by something you said about her wearing your papa’s shirt?
Vera: Izzzzzit? (clueless, starts to look around for a distraction.)
Interviewer: Ahem, moving along… Where does your mummy find time to blog? Isn’t she supposed to be busy working and looking after you kids?
Vera: Mummy plays with her phone all the time, so I think she uses her phone to blog.
Or maybe she blog secretly when di-di and I are sleeping…my mummy is so naughty, she’s supposed to sleep with me, but she goes to blog instead. So naughty one.
Interviewer: Okay…so you think your mummy is naughty.
Vera: Yes. So naughty. Vera is not naughty, I’m a good girl. I sleep at 8 and wake up at 7, mummy says I must sleep early every day.
Interviewer: So…do you wish that she spends less time on her blog and more time with you?
Vera: Noooo? I wish she will buy me more gummies and biscuits and sweets.
You want gummies? I ask her to give you…but you must be a good girl hah? Eat already must brush your teeth hah?
Okay back to the topic. How do you feel about your mum sharing so much about you on her blog?
Vera: I like to see myself on the computer. I think I look very pretty.
Interviewer: Yes, you are quite sweet.
Vera: Noooo…I am not a sweet. I am preeetty. You want sweet is it?
Interviewer: Erm, no…never mind.
Vera: I think you need a sweet.
Interviewer: !!! I think I just need to lie down.
Vera: You want to sleep? Okay, lie down, I pat you okay? Softly okay?
And that was the end of a very short interview session with the lovely, almost famous, almost 3-year-old Vera. Thanks sweetie-pie for making this day so special for mama, and for being such a BIG inspiration to me. I mean it. It’s only because of the funny things that you do that life (and this blog) gets its colour.
