An interview to my children about me. It was Fun!

To celebrate mother’s day week and my own debut as a mother I interviewed my soon to become 9 year old and 5 year old children.

I did not do it at the same time and both did not know what was all about. My questions were in Spanish and their answers in English. I have to remember that it is OK, I know that their brains are bilingual, a few months in Bolivia and they will be speaking Spanish.

It was fun to listen to their answers, they made me think, laugh and reflect as a mother.

I could not help it but to think in what my mom used to tell me, “One day you will become a mother and  you will understand”.   For now, I am content, that they know that Mommy loves them.

  1. I love this Cecy. It really made me smile.


    I love how your 5 year old thinks you are 10. I remember when one of my kids were in preschool (I think it was my son) they asked how old Mommy is – and the kids said 10, 16, 5….


    Thanks for sharing! This is awesome!
