Life with 2 under 2 – I’m Not Just a Mum
So @daddygiraffe on Twitter asked me to fill out these following questions as part of a Getting to Know you series! So here are my answers, feel free to message me and I will send you the questions also!
Can you tell us about yourself a little bit?
I’m Jayne Mummy to Sebastian and Ophelia (10 months apart) and we are expecting our third baby in October so that will mean 3 under 2 and a half! I trained as a nurse, but due to complications with my first pregnancy I had to go on maternity leave early and have not yet returned to work. I am now able to work from home as an Nu Skin Ambassador which is a beauty and skin care company. You can also find me over on my blog, blogging about the daily trials and tribulations of being a mum! www.theunstoppablemama.online
What would you say your profile picture says about you?
Tired mum who spends a lot of time in the car!
Do you prefer day time or night time?
It depends, I like both for different reasons. Day when the kids are being good, love playing with them and creating activities to keep them entertained. But I also love it when the kids have gone to bed (who doesn’t!), I get some me time which usually consists of tea and Netflix!
If your friends could describe you in one word what do you think it would be?
Honest, I tell it how it is!
Whats your fondest memory?
This is a hard one I have so many, but if I had to pick one at this time of year it would be taking my Nan out in my car for the first time after I passed my test, I ran over an already dead animal due to a lorry coming the other way, and I said I only ran over it a little bit, and my Nan was in hysterics, I think she nearly peed herself! I was 18 at the time. My Nan is no longer with us and she passed away just after Easter four years ago, so I often have her on my mind at this time of year, according to my family, now that I am a mum I am a lot like her in so many ways – I think the rest of the family see it as a comfort!
Do you have any hobbies?
Yes, one which I don’t have much time for these days with the kids, but I love Crochet, I made all of my kids blankets!
What annoys you?
Mess, I hate it, my house was so tidy before kids! I spend an hour every night when the kids have gone to bed cleaning and tidying up. I’ve had to cut this time spent cleaning down as I would spend the whole evening doing it which left now time for me!
What makes you happy?
The sunshine and seeing my kids happy and playing, also chocolate!
If you were stranded on a desert island with 3 things what would they be?
My family, gin and biscuits!
Can you tell us something that nobody would know about you?
Sometimes when the kids are being the biggest pains in my backside, I just want to book myself into a hotel for two nights and let my other half handle the terrors! When number three arrives I may have to do this!
Who’s your biggest inspiration?
This has to be my dad, after a very long battle with numerous bone infections he had a full hip disarticulation 4 years ago (Had his whole right leg amputated at the hip joint) and he has been determined to get back to work since then. Last year he went back to work as a mechanical engineer at The University of Warwick and has since been nominated for awards, for his work.
What’s your biggest fear?
I was going to say spiders but I don’t really fear them I just don’t like them! I’m not actually sure what my biggest fear is – I guess I haven’t come across it yet!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
I love dunking doughnuts in my tea!
