I've not done a tag in absolutely ages, actually I think it's been years.  This one is a little bit of fun, so grab a cuppa and enjoy!

1. Are you a Stay at Home Mum, or a Working Mum?
I am just about to go back to work part time, 3 days!

2. Would you have it any other way?
In a dream world I'd love to stay at home, spend time with my boy, and do my own thing, but i'd also probably put him to nursery anyway even if it was just 1 or 2 days as I think it will be really good for his development and social skills.

3. Do you co-sleep?
Nope! Oscar has always slept in his own bed, apart from the odd night where he has been unsettled.  Personally I don't see many benefits to co-sleeping, however every mummy/baby is different so what works for one doesn't always work for another.

4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
Our Perfect Prep machine!  I was totally against it to begin with, to me it was lazy, what was wrong with a jug and boiling water? HA, how naive was I?! Now I'd be lost without it!  It was a total lifesaver at 2am in the morning when Oscar was in need of a feed, and even now when it gets to bed time, Oscar doesn't like waiting for his milk and it literally takes 2 minutes!

5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I'd like to have 3, but I won't be greedy, I'd settle for one more :)

6. Date night? How many nights per month?
Hmmm this is a tricky one because my hubby and I have been quite lucky, we have managed to keep some resemblance of our social life, but date nights have become more sparse, so I'd say maybe 1 every few months.

7. Your childs favourite show?
Mickey Mouse Club House.  Oscar loves the music and is glued to the screen when it's on.

8. Name one thing you bought before you had your baby and never ended up using?
Little white outfits and baby shoes!  As soon as Oscar was born we were given an abundance of boys clothes and I didn't want to dress him in plain boring white.  As a new expectant mummy (if you don't find out the sex) you want to buy all the cute neutral stuff, but save yourself some money and don't bother!

9. Your child’s favourite food?
I don't really think Oscar has a favourite, he isn't fussy in the slightest and eats anything he's given!  He does love a rich tea however!

10. How many cars does your family have?
We have 2! My husband works quite a bit out of the city, so it's much easier to have two as we can't really share.

11. Weight gain before pregnancy, during and after and now?
During pregnancy I was really off my food and only gained bump weight, about a stone in total, however after having Oscar my appetite reappeared and I am so sad to say that I gained a little more weight.  In total I have gained about 12lbs overall *crying face inserted here*

12. Dream holiday with your kids?
Disneyland of course!  My husband and I have never been and I can't wait to experience it, and also be able to give Oscar a holiday like that, something neither of us experienced as children, after all its far more magical when your 5 or 6!

13. Dream holiday without your kids?
I have a real desire to visit Dubai, however LA or NYC is also on par, I've been to both of them before and I can't wait to go back! 

14. How has your life changed since your baby has been born?
Life has completely changed, but definitely for the better.  Oscar has brought my husband and I much closer, closer than we were before which was pretty close, he's also put a lot of things into perspective and has shown us that nothing but love and happiness matters in this life.  Children really do bring a joy into your life that you can't explain until you have one yourself.

15. Finish the sentence: 'It makes my heart melt to see … '
Oscar giggling at his daddy!

16. Where do you shop for your kids?
I love NEXT for boys clothes, Mini Club at Boots, H&M, George at Asda, F&F at Tesco!  I just pick up things for Oscar all over the place, if I see something and I love it, I'll just get it.

17. Favourite makeup and skincare products?
NARS, I love their foundation (sheer glow) my skin seems to take it really well!  NSPA Hot cloth cleanser is one of my absolute favourites, it leaves me skin feeling really refreshed!

18. Huggies or Pampers?
Neither - Papmers leaked on many occasion and I've never tried huggies.  We use Asda's Little Angels, I switched to them when Oscar was around 4 months and I love them!  I also use their sensitive wipes!  Super fab value for money!

19. Have you always wanted kids?
Yes, definitely!  I always wanted to be a mummy, but I wanted to make sure that I was ready and able to provide a stable home.

20. Best part about being a mum?
I can't pin point one thing because I love it all, even the poopy nappies, haha!
