The Mummy Tag
I have been tagged in 'The Mummy Tag' by the lovely Clare from Sons, Sand & Sauvignon so a big thank you to Clare! This tag is full of questions designed to help you all get to know me better!
Are you a stay at home or working mum?
I am currently a stay at home mum, I have been since my son Charlie was born 6 years ago-eek!! Sounds like a long time when I type it! But I am working towards being in a position to earn some money from home so that I can continue to be at home for when I am needed and school holidays etc.
Would you have it any other way?
No, definitely not. I do miss earning money and some grown up interaction some times but I wouldn't change it for anything.
Do you co sleep?
We have only ever co slept when one of our three moneys has had a bad dream or couldn't sleep etc and then they would climb in with us. I was always too worried myself or my husband would roll onto baby when they were little!!
What is your one must have item for your baby?
As I am sure is the same with many parents when our children were babies we couldn't live without Muslin Cloths! Used them for everything! Now I would say their favourite teddy.
How many kids do you plan on having?
Before we had children we had always wanted four however money restraints with our house and car etc etc mean that we are happy with our three.
Date night, how often do you have them?
Ummmmm, not that often sadly!! Mostly due to finding babysitters, we found the more babies we added to our family the less volunteers we had! We should definitely schedule some in advance though and get some couple time.
Whats your child's favourite show?
Paw Patrol is definitely a favourite for all three of our children, they love it!
Name one thing you bought before you had your baby that you didn't end up using?
There wasn't really anything other than some newborn baby clothes that my first born was too big for then he was born. I was only 19 and we didn't have a great deal of money so only bought essentials.
Your child's favourite food?
Charlie love pizza! Harry's favourite is hotdogs! And Olivia is obsessed with peppers.... very odd but so healthy I am encouraging it!
Weight gain before pregnancy, during, after and now?
So all of my pregnancies have been different with Charlie I had around 7lbs to lose after I had him and was straight back into my clothes, with Harry I put on 3stone, and with Olivia I finished my pregnancy only 2&1/2lbs heavier. However in the last year I have gained some weight and I am now 4 stone heavier than my pre children weight. You can see my slimming world journey on my blog and youtube channel if this is something that interests you! I think I will always have a mum tum with loose skin even when I have lost the weight I want to lose.
Dream holiday with the kids?
Disneyland Florida!!!! Definitely not in our budget at the moment sadly but I would love love love to take them!
Dream holiday without the kids?
I would love to go to Barbados with my husband but I doubt I would get him on a plane as he is terrified of flying.
How has your life changed since having kids?
Completely, your world and life is centred around them but its beautiful.
Finish the sentence. My heart melts when....
My children give me a hug and tell me they love me without me saying it first. Amazing feeling.
Where do you shop for your kids?
Mostly Primark purely for the price and because they grow out of them so quickly! But I do love Matalan and Next as well.
Favourite Make Up or Skin Care Products?
I have quite a few but my favourite foundation is by Estee Lauder and my favourite facial cleansing products are by Simple.
Huggies or Pampers?
Have you always wanted kids?
Yes always, I have always wanted to be a wife and mummy.
Best part of being a mum?
They bring love, joy and laughter to my life in a way that nothing else can.
