When I was driving home from picking up my toddler from nursery one day and she asked me "Are you driving, mummy pig?" Eh, when did we start calling me mummy pig???

Watching my 2 year old running mad around the kitchen, dancing and singing, making my baby laugh hysterically for the first time!

Probably the rare occasion where I get to sleep through the night uninterrupted! Or getting to sit and watch a whole film with a nice glass or two of wine!

Funniest Mummy Moment: 

When my poor daughter got mixed up counting down the days to Christmas last year. At 4 years old she confidently took herself to the living room on Christmas eve morning and woke us all up screaming at 5am that Santa had forgotten her. Once we explained she was just a day early and sure he would come tonight she thought it was really funny.

Happiest Memory:

The birth of both my children. Such an amazing experience meeting these two little people that we created and becoming a mummy

Favourite Treat:

I love a good family day out or 1:1 time with my children. As any parent will appreciate a little date night or catch up with friend's child free is lovely occasionally too.

At Christmas time my son jack heard the song "Mary's boy child Jesus Christ" for the first time .... And he blurted out "oh for Jesus Christ Paul" Paul is his Dad's name!!!! , (Not sure where he heard that!!!!! ) I couldn't stop laughing.

Happiest Memory:

Oh It's hard to think of just one! meeting my husband in a night club in Glasgow on my birthday! or our wedding day was just amazing! But I Particularly love thinking about the happiness I felt when we became a family (both times round)!

Date night, putting some good clothes on, drinking some wine and eating some lovely food! (That someone else has cooked)!!
