Being mama...

/


Dear Friends,

I have been kindly nominated for the mummy tag by the lovely Laura over at Adventures with J. The rules for this one are simple, answer the questions and then tag two more mummies to take part. It has taken me ages to do this with holidays, work etc etc I am so sorry Laura. When I first saw this tag I thought it was better suited to mummies of younger kids so I have done a bit of adapting along the way... I hope you enjoy learning a bit more about me from the answers.

ARE YOU A STAY AT HOME MUMMY OR A WORKING MUMMY?
I work part-time. I initially worked 2 days a week and now I work 3 although I finish at 2p.m. on Wednesday. I work as a primary school teacher and children in Holland are free on Wednesday afternoon.

WOULD YOU HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY?
If we won the lottery I'd happily stay at home to be honest but I do love my job!

DO YOU CO-SLEEP?
My boys are 7 & 10 so no. But we love a sleep over when papa is away and will all climb into mama's big bed. The boys have their own bedrooms but choose to sleep together in one room in a bunk bed.




WHAT IS YOUR ONE MUST-HAVE ITEM FOR YOUR BOYS?
An electronic device as sometimes the big lad needs to retreat into his electronic world when the sensory input is too much for him. Or a box of top trump cards can keep my two busy for ages!

HOW MANY KIDS DID YOU PLAN ON HAVING?
3 but after a big scare when I was pregnant with little man we stopped at two. We had many extra scans and check-ups as little mans heart was thought to be bigger than normal. It was a very scary time!

DATE NIGHTS – HOW OFTEN DO YOU HAVE THEM?
Not often enough... But we have sofa picnics all the time at home that is our relaxing time. When we do go out it is normally for a meal. We socialise a lot with our neighbours/friends, we have BBQs together and dinner parties.

YOUR CHILD’S FAVOURITE TV SHOW?
The boys love Pokemon of course and watch anything on Cartoon Network or Disney Channel. CBeebies is long gone (thank goodness) but used to be on all the time and the big lad had a bit of a Bob the Builder obsession...

Hunting Pokemon with Pokemon Go

NAME ONE THING YOU BOUGHT FOR YOUR BOYS AND NEVER ENDED UP USING?
A furby! Little man went mad for one and he has never touched it. Lego- I know most kids love it but not my two!

YOUR CHILD’S FAVOURITE FOOD?
Little man sausages and big lad pizza - we are very healthy!

HOW MANY CARS DOES YOUR FAMILY HAVE?
One. But I also have a scooter, a lovely pink one... We live in Holland.

WEIGHT GAIN, BEFORE PREGNANCY, DURING AND NOW?
No idea I don't own scales. I am about a size larger than before my boys were born.

DREAM HOLIDAY WITH YOUR KIDS?
Last year we stayed in a 5 star hotel in Turkey, it had a great kids program and we had an amazing time. I like to relax and read and sunbathe and hubby can't sit still so we need somewhere that can satisfy us both... I like to visit places with history.



HOW HAS LIFE CHANGED SINCE HAVING KIDS?
Everything has changed. Simply put my kids come first...

WHERE DO YOU SHOP FOR YOUR KIDS?
Next, Vingino, Tumble Dry, Name-it...

FINISH THE SENTENCE “IT MAKES MY HEART MELT WHEN…..”
I see my boys together, laughing, talking, playing just being together. They are inseparable!

FAVOURITE MAKE-UP AND SKIN CARE PRODUCTS?
I can't go out without my eye-liner and mascara on! But I am not a slave to products. I do swear by Nivea cold cream, my nana used it and she had the most beautiful skin!

HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED KIDS?
I never really questioned it. I just always accepted I would...

BEST PART OF BEING A MUMMY
Unconditional Love...

I am not going to tag any blogger's in this post, I'm just going to leave it open and say, if you would like to take part, drop me a tweet or DM and I will be sure to read, comment and share!
