The Mummy Tag

I was asked by Debs over at Super Busy Mum to join in with a great little game called The Mummy Tag! I thought you all would be interested to hear what life is like for me as a Mum so here we go....

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?

I work 3 days a week so a bit of both! 

2. Would you have it any other way?

Yes I would love to be a SAHM and full time blogger but money just wouldn't stretch. I miss Ted on my work days and feel like I am missing out on so much.

3. Do you co-sleep?

No, Ted has always slept in his own bed quite happily.

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?

Ewan the Dream Sheep. We reviewed him a few months ago and I wish we had found him sooner!

5. How many kids do you plan on having?

2 - We both come from quite big families and I want Ted to be a big brother but am happy being a little family...(much less noise!)

6. Date night? How many nights per month?

One if that! Something I am looking to improve on as I do think they are so important for parents.

7. Your childs favourite show?

Ben and Holly or Peppa Pig although Thomas does stop Ted in his tracks!

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?

A changing unit! We have always changed Ted on the floor and never had a need for a big changing mat. Will not be buying one for our next baby either.

9. Your child’s favourite food?

Can I say anything he can get his hands on?

10. How many cars does your family have?

2 and they are money guzzling beasts that I wish we could do without.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?

Before...I was about 9 1/2 stone...went up to 12 during pregnancy, dropped back down after having Ted to about 11 and have remained at 11 1/2 :(

12. Dream holiday with your kids?

Feather Down Farm holidays are amazing for little ones, perfect in mid summer!

13. Dream holiday without your kids?

Australia for 3weeks touring the restaurants featured on Masterchef Australia!

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?

I have learnt I am capable of much more than I ever imagined. A negative though is that I don't make enough time for me and have become a lot more self conscious.

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … 

Ted with my parents. He takes my Dad's hand and walks him to find a book to read and the minute my Mum walks in the room he squeals and runs to give her a cuddle!

16. Where do you shop for your kids?

Supermarkets! Great quality products and really good prices.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?

BB Cream by Garnier, I swear by it. Also Dry Shampoo for those days when washing your hair is the last of your priorities!

18. Huggies or Pampers?

Neither, we go for supermarket own brands. I am yet to find any that we haven't loved.

19. Have you always wanted kids?

I always wanted to have a family but was very scared of falling pregnant. In fact when I discovered I was pregnant with Ted I cried saying "I can't do it" but I did and look at me now!

20. Best part about being a mum?

Knowing that you are somebody's everything and one of my favourite quotes sums it up perfectly. 

Nobody will ever know the strength of my love for you, after all you're the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside.
