If you have a child you'll know that there is no filter on what comes out of their mouths, sometimes this makes for a pretty uncomfortable situation. My most memorable one came from Noah, we were in the queue in Monsoon and he quite loudly just said "Mummy, why is that lady so fat...!!" I wanted the ground to swallow me up, she turned around and luckily didn't seem to take offence but still I over apologised and paid and left as quickly as I could. This moment will stay with my for the rest of my life and I'm sure I'll tease him when he's older about it. 

I asked Noah these questions and was really intrigued to what his answers would be.
