The Mummy Tag!

I have been tagged to do this SO many times, so thank you if you tagged me and apologies it has taken me so long! But here we are, finally, my answers to 'The Mummy Tag'!

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
Right now I'm on maternity leave  (Ethan's 10 months), but the plan is to return to work for a couple of days and I suppose you could say I work quite a good few hours running my blog :)

2. Would you have it any other way?
When I started my maternity leave I was sure I wouldn't want to return to work, but I now think it might do some good for both Ethan and I. I'd get some 'me' time and Ethan would spend a whole day with his Grandma (Adams Mum) and a whole day with his Dad. I'm going to see how it goes. :)

3. Do you co-sleep?
Not intentionally - Ethan usually worms his way into our bed every night somehow! haha.

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
I'd say a grow-bag. They take all the worry of blankets and suffocation etc away!

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
Right now, 2.

6. Date night? How many nights per month?
We're quite lucky in that my Husbands parents are very helpful and always willing to look after Ethan so maybe every 2 weeks, or round about that.

7. Your childs favourite show?
Peppa Pig!

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
Newborn clothes - Ethan was a big baby! We may have used them once or twice if that! Oh and newborn booties/shoes - they were a waste of money for us!

9. Your child’s favourite food?

10. How many cars does your family have?
Two - one each.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
I'm not sure to be honest. I'm not one to be over-worried about my weight. I've put weight on but I'm happy :)

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
I'd love to go to America with Adam and Ethan. 

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
America still! Las Vegas, San Francisco and LA. :) Then another holiday to New York and another to Florida. Ah - I might as well just move there! Can you tell that I'd love to go!?

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
I've become more patient. Life has sped up faster than I ever thought possible! I feel much more content. I am happier. Oh and I am never not busy!

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … '
My Husband and my Son laughing and cuddling.

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Oh everywhere! Tesco, Gap (if there's a sale on!), Next etc.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
I am LOVING Estee Lauders Double Wear foundation at the moment. 

18. Huggies or Pampers?

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No - I was adamant I'd never have children. But my feelings changed :)

20. Best part about being a mum?
Watching Ethan grow and learn new stuff. Watching him smile and laugh. It's all amazing. Not always easy, but still amazing!
