The lovely Tracy from expatbabyadventures.com tagged me!
Go check out her blog, she is really awsome:
Here are my answers:
1. Are you a stay at home mum or a working mum?
I am a stay at home Mom for the second time. I stayed home with Blackberry #1 for 2 years and 3 months and then went bakc to work. Now I have been home for about 18 months.
2. Would you have it any other way?
No. I like staying home with the boys when they are little. But eventually I will need to get a job and start working again 😦
3. Do you co-sleep?
No. But I do sleep in the same room with Blackberry #2 (I like to hear that he is breathing), while Blackberry #1 sleeps in the same room with his Daddy.
4. What is your one must-have item for your baby?
A Stroller. We have a Bugaboo Cameleon.
5. How many kids do you plan on having?
I have always wanted 2 kids. 2 girls 🙂 I was blessed with 2 boys 🙂 The last time I was pregnant was the first time I thought about having 3 kids. But since Blackberry #2 was born so early, and the NICU roallercoaster was not an easy thing, I am too afraid to get pregnan ever again 😦 But I will always be sad that I don’t have a daughter 😦
6. Date nights. How many do you have per month?
Zero. Husband is a workaholic. He is never home, and when he is, he has to spend some time with the boys. We did go on a vacation once without kids to California for 10 days.
7. Your child’s favourite show?
Blackberry #2 does not watch TV yet. Blackberry #1 on the other hand watches way too much 😦 He likes the Transformers. And he loves The Cars and Wreck it Ralph and Madagascar.
8. Name one thing you bought before the baby but never ended up using?
I bought a Chicco Post Natal Belt, and I tried to wear it after my C-Section, but it was the most uncomfortable thing, it was awful and really expensive.
9. Your child’s favourite food?
BB#1 is a terrible eater. Really picky. He does like blueberries and Blackberries, olives, french toast, waffles, tuna paste,pizza, hot dogs, Hamburgers and Pasta Bolognese.
10. How many cars does your family have?
We have two cars, a Seat and a Volkswagen.
11. Weight gain – before pregnancy, during, after and now?
I only gained 1.5 kilos while pregnant with BB#2. After birth I lost like 6 kilos like in 1 week, so I was really happy about that, but those 6 kilos came back, and even a few more, since I was in isolation with BB#2 😦 So it would be nice to start to loose weight, but so far I have not done anything to get it started. First I will have to give up all those buiscuits.
12. Dream holiday with your kids?
I guess Euro Disney in France. And any sea side destination 🙂
13. Dream holiday without your kids?
Positano, Italy. And I would love to drive across the USA and see a bunch of stuff. Like from San Francisco to New York.
14. How has your life changed since having kids?
It has changed alot. Being single was a completly different life style. I could sleep in, go out whenever I wanted, I could travel etc.
Now I am responsible for 2 little human beings 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I always thought my “real” life would start when I have kids, but since I have them I feel like I don’t have a life anymore, but at least theirs started and that is the most important thing.
15. Finish the sentence, ‘it makes my heart melt when …’.
I see BB#2 smile in the morning, or when I see BB#1 hugging BB#2.
16. Where do you shop for your kids?
H&M, C&A, The GAP, Tesco.
17. Favourite make up and skincare products?
18. Huggies or Pampers?
Pampers. I also use Libero.
19. Have you always wanted kids?
Yes, I always wanted kids. I think I started naming them when I was around 10. But I have changed the names, like none of them are called Madonna.
20. Best part of being a mum?
The love I can give to my Children, and the love I receive from them.
