The Mother Tag

I originally saw this tag over on the great blog that is Dolly Dowsie and just knew I had to do this one as well. So here are the answers I have to the questions hope you enjoy.

1. Are you a stay at home mother or a working mother?
For now I am a stay at home mammy.

2. Would you have it any other way?
I was originally meant to go back to work after maternity leave but financially it worked out better for me to stay at home. Staying at home has been more rewarding than any job and definitely harder work. I wouldn't change staying at home with my little girl for anything now. Someday I know I will go back to work but when the time is right.

3. Do you Co-sleep?
No! I was so nervous about cot death or rolling over and smothering Lillibug that I couldn't do it. In the first six months I used to have awful nightmares about those thing that I would wake up in an awful panic.

4. What is your one must have item for baby?
Definitely a steriliser, I couldn't breastfeed so it was bottles all the way that need to be sterilised of any nasty bugs.

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
We are completely happy with just having one but maybe further down the line we might be blessed with another.

6. Date Night? How many nights per month?
We very rarely go out, but we do make an effort to relax on Friday or Saturday nights with a good movie (so does that count?).

7. Your child's favourite show?
Lillibug doesn't get much telly time but when she does she goes nuts for Tinkerbell or Sofia the First which is great because I love them too. Looks like Lillibug is going to take after me with my Disney obsession!

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
I only bought what I needed for the hospital bag and had deposit down on pram and Moses basket. I was very old fashioned that way not wanting to buy anything until our baby arrived.

9. Your child's favourite food?
Grapes and more grapes, she will eat them till they come out her ears.

10. How many cars does your family have?
One and that is all we need. Hubby can walk to work as it's not far and then myself and Lillibug can have the car for our jaunts out.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during, after, and now?
Um not sure I like this question.... Before pregnancy I was just at the right weight, during I ballooned so much everyone thought I was carrying twins, after it took nine months to get back to my orginal weight. Now my I struggle with weight because I have an under-active thyroid.

12. Dream Holiday with your kids?
The obvious would be Disneyland, but I would love to go to Lapland for Lillibug's birthday (when she is older and her birthday is 30th of November). I absolutely love November & December they are my favourite months of the year and full of magic, so seeing Santa and his reindeer's would be awesome in the snow.

13. Dream Holiday without the kids?
I would love to go to Paris with hubby for a long weekend. We have both been there but never together and it is my favourite city.

14. How has your life changed since baby was born?
It has changed dramatically for me but all in the best possible way and can't imagine my life any different now.

15. Finish the sentence: "It makes my heart melt to see...."
Lillibug dance and sing with her teddies who she goes everywhere with.

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
Debenhams, Dunnes, Marks & Spencers, Next.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
Without a doubt I love URBAN DECAY eye-shadows the quality is just outstanding and can never walk past the counter without eyeing something up.
I also wouldn't be without my Cleanse off Mitt or The Body Shop Cleansing Butter to keep my skincare in tip top condition.

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Neither, seriously in this day in age I will not spend the money on them when Lidl do their own brand for a fraction of the price and more importantly are just as good. I have written about their nappies before and you can read that here.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
Yes always.

20. Best part about being a mum?
The love!

Hope I didn't bore you and if you liked it and do the tag yourself let me know would love to see your answers. x
