Questions about the kids – how much do mum and dad know about us, eh?! By Ruben and Rosie

In a follow-up to our post ‘Questions to ask the kids about Mum and Dad‘, this time we turned the quiz around and Ruben and Rosie asked US questions about themselves. We’ve raised them for 10 and 7 years respectively, and spent the last 10 months with them 24 hours a day… The question really is: do we know our kids as well as we think we do?!

What is something Ruben and Rosie ALWAYS SAY to you?

Aaron: They both always ask in a shop, “Can we get some sweets?”

April: Ruben – “I can’t find it!” [It’s usually right next to him!] Rosie- “Do we have to walk?! Can we get a taxi?”

What makes Ruben and Rosie HAPPY?

Aaron: Gaming, days out and takeaway pizza! They also like going swimming.

April: Ruben loves learning a new Yo-Yo trick. Rosie loves ‘chilling out’ at home, doing her thing and not having to walk places.

What makes Ruben and Rosie SAD?

Aaron: Doing school work on this trip!

April: Ruben doesn’t like it when Rosie wanders off and gets lost. Rosie is sad when she thinks about missing her friends back home and her teacher at school.

How do Ruben and Rosie make you LAUGH?

Aaron: Ruben has a funny laugh, which then makes me laugh. Rosie always has a very honest answer for everything, which always makes me smile.

April: Rosie does funny impressions and silly voices! Ruben makes me laugh when he denies he’s done a bad fart, even when we all know it was him…!

What are Ruben and Rosie going to be like as adults?

Aaron: Rosie will be strong, determined and independent. Ruben will be successful, and probably have a big family.

April: Ruben will be a thoughtful and caring person, probably working with people. Rosie is brave, so I think she will be pretty adventurous!

April: Ruben likes practising Yo-yo tricks he’s seen on You-tube, and talking on WhatsApp with his friends. Rosie likes watching films and playing games on her Kindle.

If Ruben and Rosie become FAMOUS, what will it be for?

Aaron: Ruben could be famous for his running or maybe setting up a YouTube channel. Rosie will be famous for discovering a new animal.

April: Ruben is clever and likes finding out about new things, so maybe he’ll be famous for discovering something never seen or known about before? Rosie could be famous for performing, if she ever gets over feeling so shy!

What are Rosie and Ruben REALLY GOOD at?

April: Rosie isn’t good at being enthusiastic about trying something new, even if we know she’ll actually really enjoy it! Ruben isn’t always good at being patient with his sister… (even though he loves her loads!)

What will Ruben and Rosie’s JOBS be when they are grown up?

Aaron: Ruben will probably do something medical or financial. Rosie will be a zoologist or a vet!

April: I think Ruben might be a children’s doctor. Rosie will be the female equivalent of Bear Grylls – an adventurer or explorer!
