big m pieces of eight Tweet On Tuesday Big M turned 8. EIGHT! I’m pretty sure she was only just born. As is our tradition, we sat down for a birthday interview. This year it took place on her birthday rather than the night before. Mostly because she is really big and does stuff in the evenings now. Sigh. ******* Me: Good evening Big M. What is special about today? Big M: It’s my birthday!! *big grin, complete with wobbly tooth hanging out of mouth* Me: It is indeed. And how old are you today? Big M: Eight. Me: You are. That is so grown up. Big M: *beams* Me: How does it feel to be eight? Big M: Good. Me: How does it feel good? Big M: Because I’m older. Me: Well, obviously… What was your favourite thing about being seven? Big M: hmmmmmm… don’t know. It was all good. Me: That’s good to know. What are you looking forward to doing when you are eight? Big M: Having lots of fun. Me: Sounds good. What’s your favourite colour? Big M: Turquoise. Me: WHAT?! Really? That’s new! What’s your favourite number? Big M: Eight. Me: Yay! And you’re eight. So cool. What’s your favourite food? Big M: Meatballs. Me: And you had them for tea today. Yum. What’s your favourite thing to do at school? Big M: Maths. Me: What particular bit of maths?

Big M: Harry Potter. I’m on the last book. Me: Who’s your favourite character? Big M : Hermione. Me: Why do you like Hermione? Big M: Because she’s clever. Me: What do you want to be when you grow up? Big M: A teacher. Me: What kind of teacher? Big M: One like Mr Wilson. Me: So a primary teacher that teaches all the subjects? Big M: Yes. Me: Fair dos. Who loves you? Big M: You. My family. Me: Yes we do. And who do you love? Big M: My family. Me: Of course you do. Do you love anyone outside the family? Do you have a boyfriend?
