Interview with Bug - aged 5 1/2

Two years ago I interviewed my children C (almost 5) and Bug (3 1/2) for this blog.  Their answers were both entertaining and enlightening, so last week I repeated the interviews, and this year filmed them.  Last week I posted C's interview (aged almost 7), this week is the turn of his little sister, Bug.

I had no difficulty getting Bug to sit in front of the camera - she loves the lens!

Here we go:

Hello Isobel.
I'm going to do an interview with you, is that all right?
How old are you?
Tell me about your school.
Well, it's fun, and we're just coming up to our school play.
Wow.  What are you doing in the school play?
I'm doing the girls' song, the whole song, and our class song.
And what do you have to wear?
You have to wear a red skirt, a white shirt and a blue headscarf for the class song, the girls do.  And the boys have to wear blue trousers, and I don't know what the other colour for the top is, I think it might be a red top.  And... and the girls have to wear a black for the girls song.  The boys have to wear... I can't remember what the boys have to wear.
That's all right.  Can you tell me about your friends at school?
Well, I want to tell you about the clothes we wear in the whole school song.
Go on, you tell me about those then.
We need to wear colourful clothes for that, and I wear my orange, green and blue shorts, and my blue Mickey Mouse top.
And what about your friends then.  What can you tell me about your friends?
My friend Sally is really kind to me, and my friend Lucy - she is really kind to me.  Sally and me sometimes pretend we're having holidays.
