I’m really honoured to be a finalist for the third year running in the Britmums Brilliance in Blogging Video Award, thanks so much for all the votes! I’m loving making video more than ever, and the kids seem to be getting as much out of it as I do.

    A very wise girl there – great video. Let’s hope it makes some of those greedy people to donate 🙂

    I am loving all these videos, the clever simplicity of childrens views is perfect for highlighting just how straight forward it should be for everyone to get behind this campaign x

      Yes, so easy to sign the petition!

    This is brilliant. Children speak the truth. Of course the very wealthy should give to the poor! She’s fabulous! :o)

    Oh she is brilliant! Children have a way of making it sound so simple….which it really should be. Lovely Vlog

      I agree, this theme keeps coming up, we make the world too complicated as grown ups.

    Miss L is fabulous! I reckon she and my daughter should join forces and make a coalition!

    Please everyone, sign the petition. x

      Thanks, kids are so wise aren’t they!

    Oh great video. Sometimes it takes a child to see what is obvious.

      Absolutely true!

  8. 30/05/2014 / 2:06 pm

    Oh wow…she is too cute and super smart. It never fails to amaze me how much they understand the about their crazy complicated world. I vote Miss L in the next election…! x

      Amazing how we overcomplicate the world as grown ups isn’t it!

    I do love the way that children just get what is really needed to make a difference to people. Shame so few of our politicians share this ability.
