The lovely Lauren over at Trainee Blogger and Mother has tagged me in ‘The Mummy Tag’ I actually did this tag many months ago- The Mummy Tag but I’m excited to do it again to see how my answers have changed, I haven’t gone back and read my last post as I didn’t want to get wrapped up in those old answers but the first thing I’m going to do is go back AFTER I’ve answered it this time.
Are you a stay at home or working Mum?
I am kind of both, I work from home running our business but I am also a Supervisor at Mamas and Papas- that’s part time so I still get to spend plenty of time with Oscar, the baby.
Would you have it any other way?
Absolutely not, I love my job and I love Oscar, I feel like I get the best of both worlds. As a new parent I felt it was really important for me to have something for me and that’s my work.
Do you co-sleep?
We don’t, we did, but the only time Oscar is in our bed now is in the morning for a while before we all get up for breakfast. We love this, especially when we’re both working and I for one hopes Oscar does this for many years. There’s nothing quite like cuddles in the morning.
My Newborn Must-Have?
A nice blanket or comforter that will stay with them at all times, Oscar has a Mickey Mouse that he goes to bed with every night. Also, something with a familiar noise for them, Oscar had a musical seahorse, they’re really popular or they were a year ago when I purchased this one.
How many kids do you plan on having?
I’m not sure, I think I’ll play it by ear. I’m not quite ready for another one yet although when Oscar was first born I wanted to be pregnant again immediately. I want us to spend more time with Oscar first, holidays and birthdays and making memories.
Date Night? How often?
We used to go out every week, we don’t now! I’m hoping that once we both settle in to these new roles at work we will start going out more often together because it is so important.
What’s your childs favourite show?
Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
What’s one thing you bought for your newborn and never used?
Changing unit- we ended up just putting the changing mat on the floor or our bed!
Child’s favourite food?
How many cars does your family have?
1 at the moment, we may get a second car when we move
Weight gain before pregnancy, during, after and now?
Oh wow, before pregnancy I put on a lot of weight then had really bad sickness and lost about 4 stone, then put weight on in pregnancy but not too much, then lost a few stones during labour (!!) then since Oscar was born (nearly a year ago) I have just kept putting more and more weight on.
What’s your dream family holiday?
Dream holiday without kids?
Ummm, Disney still haha. I want to go to New York too.
How has life changed since having children?
I am more tired, I am happier, I feel like there’s a reason for my existence, DEEP I know!
Finish the sentence- it makes me melt when…
I watch Ciaran and Oscar playing or Oscar reaching up to me for cuddles.
Where do I shop for my kids?
Zara, Mamas and Papas, H&M and Next.
Favourite make-up and skincare?
MAC Lipstick and Lip liner, Chanel and Charlotte Tilbury skincare- OH and Bioré and Clinique Night Cream.
Huggies or Pampers?
Have you always wanted children?
YES! For as long as I can remember.
Best part of being a Mum?
I have a family, MY family.
I tag all the Mummy’s who read my blog!
