The Mum Tag



Over the last Bex From Futures have both tagged me in 'The Mummy Tag'. I figured it would be a good idea to join in and give my readers a little insight into my life as well as Max's.

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I am a stay at home Mum however I spend most of my life working on my two blogs.

2. Would you have it any other way?
I love staying at home and raising Maxwell however I would love to return to work in the future, the future being when Max is possibly at school. I miss the working environment and I miss socialising however I feel incredibly blessed at the present moment to be able to spend time at home with Maxwell and watch him grow whilst being able to continue with Mummy To The Max.

3. Do you co-sleep?
No, Maxwell has always been a really good sleeper and has stayed in his cot however sometimes when the weather is bad or he is feeling poorly he has joined me in bed. 

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
When Maxwell was born we found that his baby bouncer was a life saver. He spent a lot of time in there bouncing away and I loved the fact that he could join us elsewhere in the house as we were able to move his bouncer around. As he grew he enjoyed sitting in there with a book or a toy. It was a sad day when he eventually grew out of it.

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I would maybe like 1 more however I am happy with just having Max. What will be, will be.

6. Date night? How many nights per month?
It is rare me and Ben get a date night. Ben works nights and rarely gets a day off, when he does have a night off we can sometimes find it hard to get someone to look after Maxwell as my sister is a busy school teacher and my parents have moved away.

7. Your childs favourite show?
Supermarket Sweep, Fort Boyard or Swashbuckle. Maxwell is a huge fan of game shows and could sit and watch Challenge TV all day. 

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
The worst thing we bought was a nappy bin. It was expensive, pointless and we never used it. I was far happier popping to the local supermarket to buy a bag of nappy bags which cost 33p a packet instead of a £5 nappy bag roll. 


9. Your child’s favourite food?
Maxwell adores grapes and apples. He also loves biscuits, he always enjoys getting his hands into the biscuit barrel.


10. How many cars does your family have?
One, Ben drives and I don't at the present moment.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
I have put a hell of a lot of weight on since having Max however I am hoping to loose this in the next year or 2. I need determination and time to do it.

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
I would adore to go on a Disney Land Holiday however I would also love to go on a UK holiday to the Isle Of Wight holiday!

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Me and Ben would love to go to New York. We would also love to go on a holiday to Australia!

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
My life has changed for the better. I had to grow up fast. If I had not had Max I would have never started my blog, nor started entering competitions which means I would have never made friends with the people I have. When I had Max many of my "friends" got bored and left me. Max has made me nothing but proud since the time he entered this earth until now and until the day I die.  He is the most precious thing in my life and the biggest love in my life.  

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … 
Happiness throughout my day and my beautiful boy laid in bed at night snuggled up, sleeping peacefully.

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
I mostly buy Max clothes from Next, Boots, Gap, French Connection and occasionally Zara.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
Rimmel London Mascara and Collection 2000 foundation. 

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers are the main love in my life however when Max was smaller we did use Huggies a lot. I also love Boots nappies at the present moment.

19. Have you always wanted kids?
No, before I had Max I was your normal 19 year old who enjoyed spending time with her friends, going to party's and having a big social life however when I had Max my life changed and now I love playing with Cars, Painting and cleaning my house.

20. Best part about being a mum?
Everything? The unconditional love, the smiles, the laughter, the tears, happiness, joyfulness,  the first's, the learning.. Everything!!
