The Mummy Tag

The other day the lovely Bex from Futures tagged me to do 'The Mummy Tag'. I thought it would be a fun tag to do so you can get to know me a bit more and my life as a mum to a toddler! I am tagging you all so feel free to take part too! 

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I work part time and you could say full time on my blog haha!

2. Would you have it any other way?
I loved having 14 months maternity leave and was sad when I went back as I wouldn't see Amelia as much. But I love my job and it's only 16 hours a week so can't complain really. I will be looking at going full time when Amelia is in Nursery when she's 3. 

3. Do you co-sleep?
We co-slept up until Amelia was 14 months old then she would sleep in her cot until 12/1am and come into our bed for the rest of the night this still happens now so you could say we co-sleep for half of the night haha! 

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
When Amelia was younger her baby swing was a life saver! We used it a lot and she loved being in it. It also meant I could get some housework done and it's the only place she would nap in the day until she outgrew it. 

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
We would love another sometime in the future {perhaps near future? ;)} But no more than 2. 

6. Date night? How many nights per month?
Date night? What's that?! Maybe once every 3-4 months if we are lucky!!! Andy works all week and our only day off together is Thursday's. We tend to only go out for occasions for example birthdays or anniversaries which aren't very often. 

7. Your childs favourite show?
Sofia the first and Tinkerbell. She will sit and watch the whole episodes now!

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
I can't really think right now, there were a few. Definitely baby shoes, we didn't use any of them. Also the bottle warmer as we breastfeed we had no use for it. Oh and moses basket, as she slept in our bed it never got used. 

9. Your child’s favourite food?
Amelia has a few favourite foods which she always eats. Cucumber is definitely high on the list. 

10. How many cars does your family have?
One, it's cheaper to run. I sold my old car and we bought one together instead.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
I never really put weight on. I've always been around 7st 7lb. I think during pregnancy I went up to 8st and a half and I lost that pretty much straight away after giving birth. I'm now 7st 10 so a little bit more than usual but I'm loving food a little too much right now so that probably doesn't help!

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
We would love to take Amelia to Disney world in florida! I went as a kid and loved it so much! We will probably wait until she's a little bit older to enjoy it more. 

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Anywhere haha!!! Would be nice to have a holiday kid free even though I'd miss her! Perhaps an all inclusive in the Caribbean as we love it there! We couldn't take advantage of the whole experience when Amelia was with us so would be nice to do it again. 

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
It's changed for the better. I never really knew how to love before I had Amelia. But it just comes so naturally and I wouldn't change it for the world. 

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … '
Amelia asking for a kiss or cuddle!

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Many different places but I manly buy Amelia's clothes from Next, Debenhams, F&F, Zara Baby, Baby Gap, Mothercare and M&S.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
I'm not really into makeup or skincare products but I would have to say my favourite makeup at the moment is my Naked 3 palate. 

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers. Never tried any others, never leaked with these so stuck with them.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No, before Amelia I always said I never wanted kids and could see myself being single and kid free for the rest of my life. Things happen and I wouldn't change them for the world. I had never even held a baby before Amelia. 

20. Best part about being a mum?
Everything! Although there are many days where Amelia can be a little madam I love it! She always brings a smile to my face.
