I saw this tag last year when I was home with Little Miss but I never completed it.. so I thought I’d do it now instead.
1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I’m a working mum – or I will be in two weeks time!
2. Would you have it any other way?
I’m probably a bad mother for saying this but no I don’t think I would. Of course, the girls will always be my first priority but I’m still the person I was before they came along. The person I was before LOVED work and even now I can’t imagine not working. I would like a better work life balance though but unfortunately with the distance to work it’s just not possible. But if truth be told, I’m not looking forward to going back to work as much as I did last time around.
3. Do you co-sleep?
No! MissMostyn is still in a moses basket in our room (until she’s 6 months) and Little Miss is in her cot in her room. She’ll be moving to a big girl bed at Christmas though!
4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Mr Bwns! I cannot leave the house unless we have Mr Bwns and a Nwns (a dummy or pacifier). MissMostyn is still too young to have formed an attachment to anything yet.
5. How many kids do you plan on having?
Two and no more. Hubby would like more but two is my limit. I want to get “back to normal” with a work routine.
6. Date night? How many nights per month?
We’ve been on occasional date nights whilst LittleMiss was our only baby but since MissMostyn’s arrival we haven’t had a date night at all. Although we have booked babysitters (Nain & Taid) for the weekend of October 9th/10th!!
7. Your child’s favourite show?
Clearly MissMostyn isn’t old enough to have favourite shows but LittleMiss is! She loves Thomas The Tank Engine (she’s definitely my girl!) and her current favourite film is Finding Nemo which have to watch at least twice a day!
8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
Bottle warmer! Tommee Tippee had a bottle warmer that “accompanied” the steraliser but due to the fact that you’re not supposed to re-heat bottles it was a waste of money!
9. Your child’s favourite food?
Cacan! Egg custard tart!
10. How many cars does your family have?
Two – would love to be able to survive on just one but unfortunately that’s not possible in this neck of the woods.
11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
I don’t actually know. I need to lose some weight now really but I think I’m back to what I was previously. I’m actually considering joining Slimming World!
12. Dream holiday with your kids?
Disney! We’ve been to Disneyland Florida once for our honeymoon but I think we’ll both admit that it’ll be just magical with kids.
13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Australian Grand Prix – enough said!
14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
It’s odd to say but I don’t think my life has changed that much since the kids were born. Obviously the overwhelming sense of responsibility and protectfulness that consumes me is new but actual day to day stuff hasn’t changed. It’s the emotional stuff that have changed.
15. Finish the sentence: ‘It makes my heart melt to see … ‘
Little Miss fast asleep in her cot or MissMostyn fast asleep in hers!
16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Wherever is cheapest!! She outgrows things so fast that there is no point in spending much. But choice shops are Tesco, Asda and Primark.
17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
I don’t wear makeup and I haven’t got a skincare routine. So I don’t own any products!
18. Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers without a doubt!
19. Have you always wanted kids?
Before meeting my husband I would’ve said no thank you but on our third (or so) date we discussed kids and he said he wanted some which got me thinking….and now we have two!
20. Best part about being a mum?
The love that exists between me & my girls. It’s unconditional and just fills my heart with pure joy! Seeing their smiling faces is so worth the sleep deprivation!
I’m not tagging anyone specific but you’re more than welcome to participate! Let me know if you do!
