The Mum Tag!

I’ve been tagged by Rachel at Activities 4 Kidz for this meme about being a parent, so read on if you would like to find out a little more about me .….

1. Are you a stay at home mum, or a working mum?
I am predominantly a stay at home Mum, although I do work 3 evenings a week!

2. Would you have it any other way?
Actually I would. I HATE working until 11pm, I mean I really hate it. It makes me so tired, which sometimes means I can not do as much as I would like with the Children. I am not saying I wouldn't like to work, I would just like to find something that fits in with our life better (wouldn't we all).

3. Do you co-sleep?
No, didnt co -sleep with either.

4. What was your one must-have item for your baby?
The Bundle bean, baby bean bag! We had it for Millie when she was born and she loved it. Not only was it easy to move around and comfy for her to nap on, but it was also great for when she had a little cold and I could prop her up a bit when she was sleeping! I actually wish I knew about my must have baby item when Chester was a baby!

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
We have two as you know. I would have more, Craig wouldnt. But even I have to say, realistically, anymore than two is just not practical at the moment, we live in a two bedroomed house and there is no chance of us moving until I am working more hours!

6. Date night? How many per month?
Sadly, I have to say almost always none. What with me working some evenings and no family locally to babysit we never seem to fit it in! We should do though, it is something I want to change this year.

7. Your child’s favourite show?
Chester's favourite show is Regular Show! It drives me insane sometimes! Millie seems to love Doc McStuffins at the moment, all the songs seem to get stuck in my head for ages after she has watched it!

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
Craig went baby shopping one day after work and came back with an ipod speaker for the cot. Why? WHY? It was the most pointless thing ever, we never even got it out of the box!

9. Your child’s favourite food?
Chesters is Pizza, homemade pizza to be precise! He just loves making it (normally with sausage and pineapple as toppings). Millie has a sweet tooth just like her Mummy! She would eat cakes and doughnuts all day if she could!

10. How many cars does your family have?
2 Cars, it would be impossible for us to drop to 1 car. Craig needs to get to work and I need to do the School run!

11. Weight before, during and after pregnancy and now?
Cheeky question! I know that I weigh less now than I did before I was pregnant with Chester! But I know that I still need to loose a little bit more/tone up before I am happy. I have just started Fit For a Princess boot camp so hopefully that will help!

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
My dream holiday with the kids happened last November (as you probably know!) when we went to Walt Disney World. But if you want me to tell you what my future dream holiday would be with the kids..... Disney World of course! We wont be able to afford to go there again for a few years yet, but a girl can still dream can't she?!

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
My dream holiday full stop is Walt Disney World! I would never go without them, although when they are grown up with their own families, I would love to go just me. By myself. Sounds silly when I am married doesn't it?! But selfishly I would love to go just for a week by myself. So that I can do everything that I want to do and have time to take in all the little things.

14. How has your life changed since having babies?
It has changed so much! But for the better, I actually don't know what we used to do before we had children! Obviously with me only working a few hours a week, and funding two children, our money has dropped significantly. We have had to learn, infact we are still learning, how to stretch our money to go further. I think we appreciate the smaller things much more than we used to.

15. Finish the sentence: ‘It makes my heart melt to see……?’
My children getting on so well. Chester is such a caring big brother. He may be a rough and tough typical 5 year old boy when he is with his friends but with his Sister he has all the patience and kindness in the world. They play games together, give each other cuddles, look out for each other. But most of all they bounce off of each other with their cheekiness!

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
To be honest where ever has the best deals at the time! They have some lovely clothes from George at Asda and Nutmeg at Morrisons, they also have some lovely clothes from The Disney Store! Wherever I choose to shop I always make sure they are well dressed!

17. Favourite make up and skin care products?
If you know me, you will know that I actually don't really have time to think about myself. So make up is something that only comes out on very rare nights out! I love my No7 make up and skin care, when I get to use it!

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Neither! We actually prefer Aldi Mamia nappies. Huggies always seemed to leak and Pampers have a funny smell to them!

19. Have you always wanted kids?
Not really, the thought of childbirth put me off! It still does to be honest! I am so glad I changed my mind though, cant imagine life without my kiddies!

20. Best part about being a mum?
I love being a Mummy, I would say the best parts about being a Mum are the cuddles, and watching them grow and learn, knowing that I am helping them do that!

I'm tagging: Misty from It's Misty...Seriously, Joanna from Halal Mama, and Michelle from Twice a mummy, double the fun cant wait to read them ladies!
