The Mummy Tag

Thanks to Jenni from Chillingwithlucas for tagging me in the Mummy Tag.
The Mummy tag is a bunch of questions realting to being a mummy of course! It’s just a bit of fun to get to know one another a little better. Even if it’s knowing what brand of nappies you use!
So here you go, these are my answers to the Mummy Tag questions.

Mummy tag
1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum or a Working Mum?
I am currently on maternity leave. I worked fully time before baby girl was born, and I plan to go back to work in October.
2. Would you have it any other way?


We are unfortunately not in the financial position for me not to go back to work. As much as I would like to stay home.


3. Do you co-sleep?

 No we don’t co-sleep. I am such a heavy sleeper when I can get some sleep and would be too scared to try it.
4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Sophie the Teething giraffe.
Sophie the Teething giraffe.
5. How many kids do you plan on having?
Just the one. We didn’t have the best Birth Experience so we are just sticking with our little angel.
6. Date nights? How often do you have them?
Our little girl is only 15 weeks old and I’m exclusively breastfeeding so we haven’t left her yet.
7. Your child’s favourite show?
Although she is still little she will be glued to the TV when Paw Patrol is on.
8. Name one thing you bought before you had the baby and never ended up using?
A tub of baby milk. I was always going to breastfeed, but we got a tub just in case I couldn’t feed her.
9. Your child’s favourite food?
Mummy’s milk
10. How many cars does your family have?
11. Weight gain, before pregnancy, during, after and now?
I only put on baby weight, but I don’t know how much. I got into my pre-pregnancy jeans 6 weeks after. I am a bit smaller now than before I was pregnant which I am putting down to breastfeeding.
12. Dream holiday with your kids?
We would love to go to Disneyland Florida in 6 years time when my husband turns 40 and baby girl is 6.
13. Dream holiday without your kids?
I have always wanted to visit Iceland an stay in an Ice Hotel.
14. How has your life changed since having kids?
I know find it hard to finish the simplest of tasks. Also I’m used to eating cold meals now!
15. Finish the sentence “It makes heart melt when…”
Baby girl scrambles over her dad to get to me with her eyes wide open and her mouth going like crazy wanting her milk.
16. Where do you shop for your kids?
I love the sleep suits from Next with their fold over hands sleeves. I also love Tesco for everyday bits.
17. Favourite make-up and skincare products?
I don’t wear much makeup, but I love Nivea face cream.

18. Huggies or Pampers?
I use Aldi Mamia nappies, great quality and much cheaper than Pampers.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No, before I met my husband I didn’t want any kids at all. That all changed!
20. Best part of being a mum?
Nurturing and teaching your baby things. It’s such a joy to see your baby smile up at you with the cutest blue eyes. It’s worth everything in the whole world.

    Lovely to read – ooo an ice hotel sounds amazing!! And yes Paw Patrol is a favourite here – it drives me UP THE WALL but it's a favourite! #KCACOLS

  3. 31st May 2016 / 8:26 pm

    An ice hotel sounds both awesome and y idea of hell at the same time. I don't like the cold much.


  4. 31st May 2016 / 6:44 pm

    Thank you for tagging me – so lovely to get to know you a bit better 🙂 xx #triballove #KCACOLS

  5. 31st May 2016 / 9:48 am

    It was lovely getting to know a learn a little bit more about you. Oh and your holiday choices both sound fabulous.Xx #KCACOLS

  6. 30th May 2016 / 12:31 pm

    Disneyland is my 'family holiday' dream! We went when me and my sister were kids, and we're both keen to go together as two big families once our kids are old enough! Better start saving now I guess! #KCACOLS

  7. 30th May 2016 / 1:58 am

    What lovely questions. Totally agree that aldi nappies are the way forward! Love the milk crazed avoiding Daddy! Even at 11 months my little one goes mental for me when milk is in order! #triballove #kcacols

  8. 30th May 2016 / 1:36 am

    Love this idea. Yes to the cold food then the cold coffee as the children get older. Even now I don't like hot coffee. Thank you for sharing your answers. #kcacols

    I've not heard of the mummy tag before! Loved reading your answers though. I always said I'd never co sleep but by 5/6 months we were bringing Arthur in with us when the night waking and sleep deprivation just got too much. I almost dropped him getting him out the cot to feed as I was so tired whereas in bed he is already there next to me. At 16 months he still ends up in with us for the second half of te night but we are going with it for now! He sleeps I the c shaped feeding pillow invetween is (we have a huge bed) we shuffle down so our covers don't go anywhere near him as he is higher up and the c pillow means we have a bit of a barrier! #KCACOLS

    I think its funny how people don't want to have kids and then they meet the right person and then change their mind – I was the same! Thanks so much for linking up to #KCACOLS hope to see you there again next week

  11. 29th May 2016 / 7:44 am

    Thanks for sharing! Sophie was a huge staple in our house too and I'm also a very heavy sleeper so much too scared to co-sleep! #stayclassy

  12. 28th May 2016 / 11:54 pm

    I love this tag! Its the first one I've read and its really quite lovely. Nice to find out a bit more about you and your little one 🙂 Emily #KCACOLS

  13. 28th May 2016 / 10:05 pm

    Those ice hotels look so cool (no pun intended! lol), awesome choice. I'm so with you on Mamia nappies too, they're the best. x #KCACOLS

  14. 28th May 2016 / 9:53 am

    Ahh, Sophie The Giraffe. My little one loved her! They grow up too fast 🙁 X #stayclassy

    We couldn't have survived NG's babyhood without Sophie. Poor old NC just gets a pastry brush! Sounds like a fantastic family you've got there – v jealous of Iceland trip! #stayclassy

  17. 26th May 2016 / 7:39 pm

    Sophie has been an instant hit with all our cubs! Try and stay away from Paw Patrol if you can, that show is a virus!


  18. 26th May 2016 / 6:31 pm

    both my kids loved Sophie!!
    I haven't used Nivea in years and I can't remember why I stopped, loved it! #stayclassy

  19. 26th May 2016 / 2:03 pm

    It's funny; neither of mine have been that fussed by Sophie the Giraffe. I agree about Nivea cream without much make-up and Aldi nappies, though (although, we don't have an Aldi nearby anymore so we're currently using Asda's for Bear).



  20. 26th May 2016 / 1:56 pm

    what a great post I do love a nose into peoples lives. I'd love to go to Florida as well, maybe when my boys are a bit older. thanks for sharing xx #stayclassy

  21. 26th May 2016 / 1:43 pm

    congrats on the little one. Welcome to the club. #stayclassy

  22. 26th May 2016 / 12:09 pm

    That's cool -a bit of tag! I'd love to go to Iceland and sit in a hot pool and see the Northern Lights. Will have to wait until the kids have left home now I reckon! 🙂 #stayclassy

    • 31st May 2016 / 8:49 pm

      I have always wanted to see the northern lights xx

  23. 26th May 2016 / 11:47 am

    Oh I am with you on Iceland. I have always wanted to stay in an ice-hotel It would be AMAZING. We also loved Sophie, she is a giraffe with magical powers! 🙂 #stayclassy

    • 31st May 2016 / 8:49 pm

      I love the idea of staying in an ice hotel! Xx

  24. 26th May 2016 / 11:16 am

    Love the idea of a family holiday to Disney World! I would love to take J on a safari but not until he is old enough to appreciate it. We also loved Sophie the Giraffe. In fact we went through 3! Although now he isn't interested in her at all! #stayclassy #triballove

  25. 26th May 2016 / 11:11 am

    I love the idea of Iceland! It seems so completely different to everywhere else. I hope you get to go one day 🙂 (Disneyland Florida is ace! And at 6 years old, he'll be just the right age to appreciate it and remember it afterwards!)

  26. 26th May 2016 / 10:33 am

    Ah this is lush….it reminds me of how quickly time has gone too as my son is now 2.5 so all of this feels like a lifetime ago!!! #stayclassy

  27. 26th May 2016 / 9:09 am

    Disneyland sounds amazing! It's always nice to get to know the person behind the blog!


  28. 26th May 2016 / 9:01 am

    A lot of your answers are mine as well. Yes to Mamia!The Next sleepsuits are awesome!I weigh less now too and I also put it down to breastfeeding. 🙂 Good interview type post #stayclassy

  29. 26th May 2016 / 8:22 am

    that Paw Patrol song will haunt you in the years to come lol – and Florida is amazing, 6 is a good age #stayclassy

  30. 26th May 2016 / 8:12 am

    Iceland is amazing. You should go as a family. Everyone says travelling with a baby under one is so much easier, although I am yet to try it myself! #Stayclassy

    • 31st May 2016 / 8:44 pm

      Thanks for commenting. Iceland does look pretty amazing! Xx

    • 26th May 2016 / 8:03 am

      Thanks. Yeah it's going to take a bit of saving for what we are planning! xx
