The Mummy Tag

Thursday, 13 February 2014

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I'm currently a SAHM but I'm looking to go back to work part time, it's harder than I thought to find a job that has flexible enough hours!

2. Would you have it any other way?
I think being at home most of the time and working a few hours a week is the right balance for me so yes, I'd like to find a job please!

3. Do you co-sleep?
No, we never have and never will. Oscar has been put down on his own in his own basket/cot from day 1 and it has worked brilliantly for all of us.

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Ewan The Dream Sheep! 

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
At the moment, we're happy with just one. We might consider in the future having a 2nd but nothing's decided yet.

6. Date nights? How often do you have them? 
Not very often at all! We tend to just get a bottle or two of wine and enjoy that on a Friday evening.

7. Your child's favourite show?
Baby Einstein is the favourite at the moment but he also enjoys The Tweenies, anything with bright colours really!

8. Name one thing you brought before you had the baby and never ended up using?
I think most things we bought have been used, we didn't go crazy buying loads of things and only got items we thought would be useful. One item that we stopped using after a couple of months was our baby monitor that had a movement sensor pad, it worked fine in his Moses Basket but used to go off constantly during the night once he moved into his cot. It nearly gave me a heart attack at first and then we ended up just turning it off and getting a HD sound monitor instead.

9. Your child's favourite food?
Strawberry flavoured anything.

10. How many cars does your family have?

11. Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now?
I had lost 3 stone before I got pregnant and finally got to about 9.12, I went up to 12.4 at the end of my pregnancy and I'm currently about 10.3 when I last checked a couple of weeks ago. (I'm 5'7)

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
America Roadtrip! Obviously when he's a bit older so he can remember it and also give us time to save up for it haha!

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Amsterdam probably.

14. How has your life changed since having kids?
We have less money, haha! And also have to plan things around nap and feed times which can make getting out trickier than it was before.

15. Finish the sentence "It makes heart melt when..."
We go into him after his nap/sleep and as soon as he sees your face he breaks out into a huge grin, so cute! 

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Mothercare, Next and Sainsbury's TU range have some adorable pieces for really cheap.

17. Favourite make-up and skincare products?
I don't have a huge selection of skincare but I love my micellar water and my Origins masks. For makeup, Max Factor mascaras and Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation.

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Aldi Mamia nappies, they are half the price and do the exact same job, no leakage.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No, when I was a teenager I was adamant I would never have children EVER. Then when I got to 20 I started to change my mind and started thinking I'd like one and at 21 I got pregnant.

20. Best part of being a mum?
Watching him learn new things and interact and his smiles and laughs.

I tag anyone who hasn't done it yet and wants to!


  1. Aw loved reading this tag! Finlay doesn't have a favourite food yet, so funny watching his reaction to his purees though :)
