Mummy tag

I was tagged by a few Mummy bloggers to do this tag, so here goes!

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I am on maternity leave until October. I will then be returning back to work but on a part time basis. My maternity leave it going way too fast.

2. Would you have it any other way?
I'm in two minds about it. We would be able to afford for me to stay at home but we would have to make cut backs. So I have compromised and will be going back but less hours. Part of me wishes I could be a SAHM but I know that my wage will help us a lot and allows us to do many more things with and for Noah. 

3. Do you co-sleep?
We did do when Noah was newborn as he would not sleep in his moses basket and would only sleep on me. Thankfully as he got older he became more and more comfortable with his moses basket and will now sleep in it. Most mornings I do bring him into bed with me when Daddy goes to work as I like to be close to him. Best of both worlds I think! 

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Just the one? I could name a dozen. I would have to say large muslin cloths. Got to be super soft and the larger the better. They are fantastic. We use them for blankets, as comforters, to clean up, to dry up, for sick, keeping his bottle warm, for play time (peekaboo), changing mat, head rest. Endless uses for them!  

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I would like to have 3 or 4. Happy with our number 1 at the moment and have plenty of time for others! 

6. Date nights? How often do you have them? 
Not as often as we should! We need to make more time for one another but when we do go out we just talk about the baby all the time, miss him and want to get back to him. We went to see The Hobbit and half way through we looked at one another and both said we missed him! 

7. Your child's favourite show?
Noah loves the TV! He seems to have taken a liking for Spongebob Squarepants. He will watch anything though! 

8. Name one thing you brought before you had the baby and never ended up using?
Outfits in new born size. I preferred him in his cosy babygrows rather than proper outfits. Little jeans and shirts may look cute but they don't look comfortable on their soft delicate skin. I want him to look like a baby for as long as possible, he has the rest of his life to be suited and booted.

9. Your child's favourite food?
Milk? I have a feeling that Noah will love his food once we begin weaning him.  

10. How many cars does your family have?
We have the one. I can't drive but Nick does.  

11. Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now?
I have put on a lot of weight, most of it after pregnancy. I can't seem to find the motivation to diet. I blame the weather!

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
Disneyland Florida. When he is older and maybe when he has a brother or sister. 

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
A road trip across America! A lifelong dream a long with living in Spain.  

14. How has your life changed since having kids?
My life has been turned upside down in the best possible way. Not only has my life changed but I feel like a different person all together. Having a baby makes day to day life much more tiring but much more enjoyable and totally filled with love. My life has never been so good. 

15. Finish the sentence "It makes heart melt when..."
Noah gives me a big gummy grin. My cheeks hurt from smiling so much at him cause he just fills me with pride and joy.

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
I shop all over the place! Next, The Essential One, Boots, Tesco, Mothercare, Asda, Ebay, Beebies Baby Store. One of my favourite places for baby clothes has got to be Tesco! Cheap and gorgeous bits and pieces.

17. Favourite make-up and skincare products?
Well you can tell I am a proper Mum now cause the skincare products I use are baby wipes and baby lotion! When I use make up I like Maybelline Dream Matte Mouse, Maybelline Powder, MAC blush, eyeshadow and eyeliner. I use lots of different mascaras. My favourite being They're Real by Benefit. 

18. Huggies or Pampers?
I like both but Pampers are easier to find. 

19. Have you always wanted kids?
Always! Isn't it why we are here?

20. Best part of being a mum?
Everything! From changing his dirty nappies to getting cuddles curled up on the sofa. Every part of being a Mum is the best part. I love being Noah's Mummy so much.
