Oooh, exciting 🙂

I’ve been tagged in a blogging meme by Team Cleo and asked to answer her questions. Never done this before but sounds like fun so here goes…

The rules:

1. Post the rules.

2. Answer the questions.

3. Create 11 new questions.

4. Tag 11 people with the post.

5. Let them know you tagged them.

My answers

1. How many children do you have?
One – little boy Bub asked 26 months.

2. Do you want to have more? If yes, how many more?
Another one hopefully. Don’t think I could cope with any more!

3. Where do you usually bring your child/children to on weekends?
Soft play 🙂
And sometimes swimming and visiting relatives too.

4. Does your baby soothe himself/herself to sleep, ever? If yes, how did you achieve that?
Yes, he does now. But for the first ten months at least he didn’t and it was a bit of a nightmare. Think I wasn’t helping though in my desperate efforts to get him to sleep. It was his daddy who cracked it in the end (find out how here.)

5. In your opinion, does your toddler have far too many bumps on the head?
No. I try not to be too much of a helicopter parent about this, though others may disagree. Obviously I don’t want him to really hurt himself but I also don’t want to wrap him in cotton wool.

6. What is your children’s favourite indoor game/activity?
At the moment it’s jigsaw puzzles. He absolutely loves them.

7. Are you happy being a staying at home parent / working parent?
I’m a working parent and the main earner in the house. This does stress me out a bit and I’d love to be able to go part time. But on the plus side it means Bub gets to spend lots of time with his Dad and I enjoy my job so can’t complain.

8. Do you have pets?
A cat, called Mia. We used to have three chickens who were a lot of work and very noisy. I sometimes wish we still had them as I reckon Bub would have loved them.

9. How often do you ‘get out and play’ with the whole family in a week?
About once a week. Most of the time Bub is with either his mummy or daddy, not usually us both.

10. Do you cook?
Yes. Unfortunately Bub’s stay at home dad has yet to appreciate the need to have my dinner on the table when I get back from the office 😉

11. Who is your child’s favourite cartoon character / band (e.g. the Wiggles, Sesame Street, etc)?
His favourite tv show at the moment is definitely Mister Maker on CBeebies.
