The Mummy Tag

I was tagged by Emma to do the Mummy Tag, a great way to find out more about us mum bloggers!

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I’m on maternity leave until Oct 2014 so right now I am a stay at he mum but I will be returning to work
2. Would you have it any other way?
I definitely think I will be ready to go back to work when the time comes.. I quite like the routine of having a job and also having my own pocket money! Harry has the most amazing nanny lined as well up so he will be just fine!
3. Do you co-sleep?
Nope. When Harry was first born he wouldn’t sleep in his Moses so there were occasions when we let him sleep on us in the night but we both didn’t think it would be good for him or us to co sleep properly. I actually don’t have anything against it though and I think it can be a lovely thing to do if you’re comfortable with it. I do however think that it can create bad habits and will cause problems when trying to get your baby to sleep alone
4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Harry loves his cot mobile! He spends a good hour in the morning playing with it! If you’re having a baby then you should definitely get one to keep them entertained so you can get dressed/have a nap/drink a strong caffeinated beverage
5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I think I would like just 2 children but right now Harry is all we need and we are quite content with just him for a few more years! 
6. Date nights? How often do you have them? 
Not all that often but this weekend Mr H is whisking me away on a romantic spa weekend for a Valentines/new mummy treat! I may take the opportunity for copious naps
7. Your child’s favourite show?
Little H is actually a telly addict already.. Whoops! He is also most definitely his fathers son as he is all about watching football!!!! Help me.
8. Name one thing you brought before you had the baby and never ended up using?
Most of his newborn clothes! They grow so so fast in those early days/weeks so Harry didn’t get much wear out of his tiny wardrobe! Oh and of course his Moses basket was a total waste of money as he never slept in the damn thing
9. Your child’s favourite food?
Ummm… Milk!? He also really likes drinking the bath water!!
10. How many cars does your family have?
Just 1 right now but I will be getting a new one soon.. Although I hate driving!!

11. Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now?
What a depressing question. I actually don’t have a clue about my weight gain during or after as I don’t own any scales!

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
Errr.. Disneyland of course!!!!
13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Probably still Disneyland!! Or the Maldives

14. How has your life changed since having kids?
My life is totally different now but I love it. I now wake up every morning with a huge sense of pride for my little family! Being a parent has it’s extremely stressful times of course but the overwhelming feeling of love for your baby is indescribable

15. Finish the sentence “It makes heart melt when…”
My little bubba talks to me!!!! I just want to squidge him so hard and eat his little chubby cheeks!!
16. Where do you shop for your kids?
I have an unhealthy addiction to The Little White Company so when I can afford it I will splurge for Harry in there. Most of the time his clothes come from supermarkets, Mothercare or Next
17. Favourite make-up and skincare products?
Estée Lauder double wear foundation and concealer is a must to mask those new-mummy dark circles and MACs Pure Zen lipstick is to die for.
I have been using Origins skincare now for the past month and I am planning a post all about it as I think it’s fabulous!

18. Huggies or Pampers?
I have only ever tried Pampers! 
19. Have you always wanted kids?
Yes I have!
20. Best part of being a mum?
when you become a mum you seem to enter this new and exclusive exciting club! Us mummy’s stick together and I have already made so many new friends from becoming a member!!
Oh and also when you get stopped out in public by a stranger overly appreciating how cute your little boy is!
I tag the following yummy mummy’s..
