When we first launched Who’s the Mummy last year, I interviewed Flea about all the things I thought our blog readers might want to know about us.
But Flea was three then. Now she’s four and in BIG SCHOOL. She’s a whole different person. So we re-did the interview (inspired by the lovely Rosie Scribble) and here it is, accompanied by a brand new illustration of Me and Flea. Just FYI, my hair still doesn't look like that. Well, not often.
Who’s in charge of the world?
Is it God from Mary and Joseph? No, wait a minute. It’s Father Christmas.
What does the Queen look like?
I don’t know, I’ve never met her. [Flea looks at me as though I’m a moron]
Where do babies come from?
How do they get there?
Well, I don’t think you pop them in your mouth… I think you imagine them in your brain and then they go down to your tummy.
Who is Barack Obama?
I don’t know, but I think he comes from that place where you get the spiders that pinch you. It’s not a shop, but it’s a place and I don’t know the name of it.
If you could be anyone else, who would you be?
In Astro Boy there is a little boy robot and he drives a car and someone says, “Who’s driving the car?” and he says “I am” and they all say “ARGH!!” I would like to be him.
Who is your best friend?
You. Except if I am at school. Then it’s Max.
If you had children, what would their names be?
I think I will have five children: Harry, Thomas, Max, Thomas and Charlie. I will have two Thomases because I like them both. And I’ll have a kitten and call it Tom.
What do you think you’ll dream about tonight?
I might dream about cats. Actually, no, guess what? I’m going to dream about what I’m wearing tomorrow. It will be my Batman t-shirt, my trousers that I wore today and some clean knickers and my boy PE socks. Did you wash my knickers? I’m dreaming about that. Wait, is it school tomorrow? Oh. Never mind then.
What makes you happy?
You, snuggling me.
What makes you cross?
When I press a button that doesn’t do anything. That’s what makes me cross.
What toy would you like if you could have anything?
A cat creature figure. Are you writing this down? Did you write that down? Let me see. Where is it? Oh, okay.
What will you be when you grow up?
A diver, because I want to have adventures under the sea. Or a pirate. Divers wear flippers.
What’s the best thing about your school?
The adventure playground. I like it best when we do colouring. When you do some sounds you colour in the things that begin with the sounds.
And your least favourite thing?
Does that mean the thing you really, really like? I really, really like my pirate ship. Wait, what does it mean? Oh. I don’t know then. I like everything.
What’s five plus five?
Errrm. Four. I can do spelling good-er, though.
