After school club featuring The UnNatural Mother

I am very excited to have Becky from The UnNatural Mother featuring on this weeks After School Club. I am a huge fan of her blog and having recently met her in person, I can tell you that she is just as lovely as expected and if you haven’t already you should definitely pop over for a read of her blog

Becky proudly shared with me her adorable son, Harry, “a very cheeky 4 year old” who has just started school this year.


“Harry loves school but when you ask him what he did that day his answer is always ‘nothin’. Getting blood out of a stone would be easier. Today’s questions took just over a hour to answer and Mummy need a stiff drink after finishing them.”

1. How would you describe school using just one word?


Anything else Harry?

No just toy’s.  (he loves the toy’s!)

2. Tell me about the best part of your day?

Playing with the T-Rex dinosaurs with William.

3. What was the hardest part of your day?

Putting my shoes on after P.E. (He came home with them on the wrong feet!)

4. What book did you read today? Did you enjoy it?

The Kitchen Disco all about fruit and it was really good. I was quiet but the other boys were naughty.

5. Did anyone in your class do something funny?

No not today.

6. Who did you play with today? What did you play?

William & Dougie and we played hide & seek and with the Dinosaurs.

7. What rules do you have at school? Do you think they are fair?

We have to sit down on the carpet and be quiet. I have to do what my teacher says. (Glad he listens to someone!)

8. What made you smile at school today?

The Ice-cream we have on the way home. It was blue and it had marshmallows on it.

9 What was the funniest thing the teacher did today?

Nothin’. (He wouldn’t be pushed on the subject.)

10. What new words did you learn today?

X-ray , the man looks in your tummy and check for things and makes you better.

11. What did you feel proud of today?

Putting my shoes on. (Doh! I didn’t dare tell him they where on the wrong feet!)

12. Does anybody make you feel cross at school?


13. Who is your best friend and why?

William today because he like T-Rex’s. (It’s a different person each day!)

14. What did you eat for lunch today?

Meatballs, potatoes, carrots and gravy. Oh and pink cake with bits on it.

15. Tell me one cool thing you learned today?

William’s mummy has a baby in her tummy. (I’m not sure this is true but Harry was very insistent.)

If you enjoyed reading Harrys interview be sure to follow The UnNatural Mother to read more about her life with her gorgeous family.

      He’s adorable isn’t he! It’s amazing what you can get out of children if you ask the right questions. We are back to “Can’t remember!” with my daughter, I will have to resort back to interviewing her every day! xx

    Even though i needed wine after doing the questions with Harry i did find it very funny and i did finally find out what he gets up to a school.Brilliant idea for a blog series XxX

      Haha he’s so adorable. I love his dinosaur obsession, such a gorgeous little boy. Thank you for taking part. xx

  3. October 11, 2016 / 7:48 am

    Harry sounds like a little caveman.. Loves dinosaurs, likes meatballs and doesn’t enjoy wearing shoes. Bless him.x

  4. October 11, 2016 / 8:18 am

    aww I love this little interview, so cute! #DreamTeam

    • Laura Dove
      October 11, 2016 / 8:34 am

      He’s adorable isn’t he? I’m really enjoying seeing what other children think of school! xx

  5. October 11, 2016 / 8:35 am

    Oh what a fab idea for a series. Love the answers! You never know, perhaps William’s Mummy does have a baby in her tummy. That’s how I found out my friend was pregnant because her daughter told my friend before she should have done. Whoops :- )#dreamteam

    • Laura Dove
      October 11, 2016 / 9:40 am

      Haha yes I remember when we still hadn’t told anyone I was pregnant with Eva and Lewis told all of his friends at school! His teacher collared me one night to congratulate me!! You can always rely on children to blab your secrets! xx

  6. October 11, 2016 / 9:26 am

    So cute! I’d love to have his lunch too, sound yummy! And of course “toys” is a perfect reason to enjoy school 🙂

    • Laura Dove
      October 11, 2016 / 9:41 am

      I think toys was my favourite thing about school at the same age too! Thank you for reading. xx

  7. October 11, 2016 / 10:50 am

    What a great little interview, such an eye opener when our kids answer set questions x

    • Laura Dove
      October 11, 2016 / 10:55 am

      Isnt it? I found “What have you done today?” was just too much of an open question for children of school age to really consider. These questions definitely give more of an insight than “Can’t remember!!”. xx

  8. October 11, 2016 / 6:49 pm

    Super-cute kiddo! Toys are what makes school fun!

    • Laura Dove
      October 11, 2016 / 7:04 pm

      Aren’t they just? My daughter is also in reception and without toys I don’t think I’d have a hope in hell of getting her there each day! xx

  9. October 11, 2016 / 8:12 pm

    Yup, best not mention shoes being on the wrong feet 😉 I love all these answers… especially nothin’ for number 9. How funny to describe school as toys. There must be some great ones there. I have this all to look forward to next year. Thanks so much for linking up to the #DreamTeam xx

    • Laura Dove
      October 12, 2016 / 8:57 am

      He’s so funny isn’t he! Thank you for reading! xx

  10. October 12, 2016 / 8:06 am

    It’s amazing what you can find out from kids..All the secrets come out:). It’s great to hear that he likes school so much, especially toys:) – that was the favorite part for my son too. Boys and their toys..some things never change, do they:))

    • Laura Dove
      October 12, 2016 / 8:56 am

      Haha you’re right, my husband is 34 and still a big kid! Thanks for reading! xx

  11. October 12, 2016 / 10:38 am

    I love doing these Q&A’s with kids – the answers are so cute

    • Laura Dove
      October 12, 2016 / 5:05 pm

      Aren’t they! We do them quite often and they never fail to make me laugh! xx

  12. October 12, 2016 / 12:50 pm

    What an adorable idea for an interview series. I love his answers! It’s so funny the things they come out with. x

    • Laura Dove
      October 12, 2016 / 5:04 pm

      Children are hilarious aren’t they? Even when they’re not trying to be! xx

  13. October 12, 2016 / 2:49 pm

    I love how Harry’s hardest part of the day was also his proudest part of the day. How lovely is that! Also, seems like his class mates and teacher need to step up on the funny side, he isn’t impressed haha!

      Thank you for reading! xx

      I can send you them over if you like! If you’d like to take part email me at and I can send you them, it’s so funny hearing what they come out with! xx

  15. October 12, 2016 / 9:30 pm

    I share the pain in getting answers about what happened at school. But well done Harry for this! My eldest Lily is also 4 and started back in September. We get little snippets of info at very random times which we then seize upon! I think I’m going to have to ask her these interview questions and see how we get on.

    • Laura Dove
      October 13, 2016 / 4:18 pm

      I would love to read her answers if you’d like to take part in the series! If you’d like a copy of them just email me at and I can send you them over. xx

    A very funny interview! I’m looking forward to seeing more!

      Thank you for reading. xx

  17. October 13, 2016 / 8:46 am

    this is my first time reading this series – such a great idea, its so difficult to get info out of kids about school having more specific questions is a really good idea! as an aside, i have the kitchen disco book and it is brilliant. great series. #stayclassymama

    • Laura Dove
      October 13, 2016 / 4:17 pm

      I’ve never heard of the kitchen disco book! I think I will have to look it up! xx

  18. October 13, 2016 / 8:49 am

    Hahah someone loves dinosaurs! The part where he came home with his shoes on the wrong foot really made me chuckle. Such a lovely idea for a guest series, I love getting to know the way children think it’s so interesting what they come up with! Thanks for sharing with #StayClassyMama!

      Children are always hilarious aren’t they? Even when they’re not trying to be! Thanks for hosting. xx

      Ahh thank you for reading! xx

  20. October 13, 2016 / 10:36 am

    As this is sweet! I love that his best friend is a flexible situation according to the day. I don’t think he needs to know yet that his shoes were on the wrong feet, although it always baffles me how kids are so unbothered about it. I find that so uncomfortable.

    • Laura Dove
      October 13, 2016 / 4:13 pm

      Haha me too! My kids will quite happily go through the whole day without noticing and I always wonder how they didn’t notice! Thanks for reading. xx

  21. October 13, 2016 / 11:24 am

    Ah I love this idea so adorable and what a cheeky chappy! Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely xx

  23. October 13, 2016 / 7:19 pm

    Ah, what a lovely idea for a series! Blue ice cream with marshmallows sounds amazing. I love that his shoes were on the wrong feet too – that must be so uncomfortable! Thanks so much for joining us again at #SharingtheBlogLove

      October 14, 2016 / 2:10 pm

      Thank you! I’m loving hearing what these school children really get up to! Thanks for hosting lovely. xx

  24. October 13, 2016 / 7:54 pm

    Adorable! I can’t wait for mine to be old enough to answer my questions. At the moment he tells me that a certain person was naughty. I suspect he’s lying most days, if not every day!! #stayclassymama

    • Laura Dove
      October 14, 2016 / 2:09 pm

      Haha they do like to make things up! Eva told me the other day a boy had hit her and stamped on her foot and I was all set to go into school before she admitted, it was just a trick! xx

  25. October 13, 2016 / 9:25 pm

    Harry is so cute, really enjoyed reading this interview short but nice. x

      October 14, 2016 / 2:08 pm

      Haha me too! Looking forward to sharing yours on the blog next week Kat. xx

      Doesn’t he just! He’s adorable, four is such a cheeky age! xx

  28. October 14, 2016 / 1:18 pm

    This is such a great idea for a series, I know my Alice loved answering the questions! Its so funny reading there answers, their lives are so simple at this age. Lovely interview. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove x

    • Laura Dove
      October 14, 2016 / 1:58 pm

      Thanks Laura. I love Alices answers and can’t wait to share them next week! Thanks for hosting. xx

      October 15, 2016 / 6:38 pm

      It’s lovely when they start replying to your questions, and then they reach an age where they stop replying all over again…!! xx

  30. October 14, 2016 / 8:02 pm

    This sounds just like my Alfie, like Harry we don’t get much from him about what he’s been up to at school – we also like kitchen disco too 🙂 Thanks for linking up #bestandworst

    • Laura Dove
      October 15, 2016 / 6:37 pm

      I really need to get onto this kitchen disco!! I’m off to google!xx

  31. October 15, 2016 / 8:38 am

    Sounds just like my BB. I ask his how his day was, and he normally responds with he can’t remember or nothing. He can only ever remember what he ate for pudding, and is more concerned with the snack that he gets on the way home. I think I will try this qus on BB. Xx #coolmumclub

    • Laura Dove
      October 15, 2016 / 6:34 pm

      Haha yes, can’t remember is Evas choice of reply! xx

    • Laura Dove
      October 16, 2016 / 4:20 pm

      Haha yes, Eva will always remember what she had for pudding! xx

    I love these interviews. Interesting combination of meatballs with veg and potatoes rather than the usual pasta #sharingthebloglove

    • Laura Dove
      October 17, 2016 / 12:09 pm

      School dinners have got quite good these days! I had a taster one before Eva started and it was lovely! Or maybe I’m just eating in the wrong places, hah! xx

  35. October 18, 2016 / 9:25 pm

    Aww how cute! I ask my children the same questions – thanks for linking to #sharewithme

      October 19, 2016 / 8:58 am

      It’s the only way to get anything out of them isn’t it?! xx

  36. October 19, 2016 / 5:36 pm

    Funny how they listen to the teachers but all that goes out of the window at home! #coolmumclub

    • Laura Dove
      October 20, 2016 / 9:08 am

      Haha yep!! I’ve started with the whole threatening to phone the school trick, that soon sorts them out! xx
