I Am the Mum Who…

I Am the Mum Who…

I was tagged by Jess who blogs at Mrs Puddleducky to do ‘I am the Mum who’ which is a fun internet meme about being a Mum. Here goes…

I am the mum who…

  • left the room and didn’t go back for ages after taking the pregnancy test that would tell her she was pregnant, because she didn’t believe it would happen
  • wanted so much to be pregnant, but when it was here sadly didn’t really enjoy the experience
  • sings to her children every night before bedtime
  • tickles her children to the theme from Jaws
  • loves nothing more than a good hug
  • loves the idea of craft with her children, but is really not so good at the ideas and the mess
  • never expected motherhood to feel this way and to be this amazing
  • who thinks her children are awesome, but is still grateful for bedtime
  • worries that sometimes she spends  too much time doing things when she should be playing
  • loves watching her children grow and develop, but gets sad sometimes because it seems to be whizzing by so fast
  • is too busy taking photos and is rarely in them
  • thinks books are essential and buys far too many for her children
  • thinks there’s nothing better than the sound of a child’s giggle
  • has to watch herself or she would spoil her children rotten
  • loves her family Legoland season ticket
  • loves buying her children clothes
  • thinks irons are evil and at 2 her son had no idea what one was!
  • wishes her house was immaculate, but sadly doesn’t have the time
  • loves to creep in and check on her children before bed, there is something so peaceful about sleeping children
  • wonders what she ever did with her time before she had children
  • never wants her children to grow up, but doesn’t want them not to either
  • is regularly overcome by such a wave of love for her children, motherhood is the hardest, but best thing that ever happened to her.

  1. Reference “wishes her house was immaculate….” – I have a sign in my kitchen that says “Only dull women have immaculate houses”. Nuff said.

  2. Lovely list Laura! I can relate to a lot of your list, esp irons which are ferry rarely used in this house! And time, what on earth did we do before being a mummy??!! Thanks for joining in x

  3. Love this! I’m the one taking pictures and am rarely in them too. Does anyone actually enjoy the pregnancy experience!?

    1. I have had a few mums say this miss being pregnant and I’m like really . Hurrah my body is back. Glad you feel the same though 🙂

  4. Awwww what a fantastic list! I nodded along with each one. I sneak up on my kids to the pink panther theme lol I love these as it’s such a lovely way to get to know other bloggers. #PicknMix

    1. Thanks Becky. The Pink Panther is another good theme to use too. I think every parent has their individual quirks and as you say it’s really nice to find out about them 🙂

  5. Oh I love this!! Thanks for the tag, I will do it ASAP. I have so many books for the boys, filled up 4+ boxes when moving house. I always check on them before bed and HATE ironing too. Mine was broken for a year, says a lot haha. Thanks so much for linking to #PickNMix

  6. Love this post, I enjoyed doing my Mum who post and reading this we are very much alike as Mums 😉 I love my children but really didn’t enjoy pregnancy at all!

    Thanks for linking up to #PicknMix lovely which opens again tomorrow! Little late commenting due to a poorly child and manic week, thank god it’s the hols now!

  7. Thanks for the tag lovely! We also buy far too many children’s books and I love that you tickle them to the jaws theme. Hilarious! x
