A family from Kent gave cheese on toast to the Prime Minister during his visit to the county on Thursday.
The family exchanged parenting stories with Tony Blair
Tony Blair popped in for tea with Pam and Pete Hake, and their two-year-old son George, while visiting a housing regeneration project in Chatham.
When Mrs Hake, 35, told him her son's sleeping habits had been causing trouble, Mr Blair sympathised, saying his son was "up at 5am every morning".
Mr Hake, 37, told Mr Blair they had lived on the estate for three years.
The Prime Minister was told the 900-home Chatham Maritime Development used to be a dockyard.
"It's been great for us," said Mr Hake.
During his day in Kent, Mr Blair also visited the Mick Jagger Music Centre in Dartford.
He told BBC Radio Kent that he had looked at all the pictures of the rock star with "a great deal of envy".
"I thought I must have made the wrong career decision at an early time in my life," he joked.
