Hello and welcome to the Brilliant Mum Feature. Once a week I will be featuring one mum in a bid to find out more about them and their lives.
If you’d like to take part in this series, simply fill in this form.
Our brilliant Mum this week is Sarah who blogs at Champagne and Petals. Sarah is a 33 year old Mummy of 2. She’s been married to her husband for almost 7 years. Sarah works part time and blogs because she loves it. Sarah enjoys going to the gym … not as often as she should and she loves to see friends and spend time with her family.
Thanks for taking part Sarah!
Have you always wanted to be a mum?
Yes, but to start with we only want one. When our Son was born in 2009 we didn’t feel the need to have anymore. However we found out I was pregnant with our Daughter in 2013 it was a bit of a surprise. A wonderful surprise.
How did you feel when your children were born?
Pleased they had arrived safe and sound. My first was a very long back to back labour. I was in hospital for 36 hours before he was born. It took me a couple of days to get into established labour, with both of them. My daughter was much quicker as I was at home until 4 hours before she was born.
What have been your most rewarding experiences so far as a mum?
They bring so much joy into our life’s, they make me so proud watching them grow into their own little person. Full of personality, so different in their own ways.
What are some of your funniest moments to have happened to you as a mum?
My children make me laugh every day. My daughter is full of cheekiness, she pulls the funniest faces. We spend our life’s laughing, which is wonderful. I often laugh at myself for repeating things my Mum used to say to me. Like ‘donkeys kick not children’ or ‘if the wind chances your face will be stuck like that’ when did I turn into my Mum?
Have there been any situations with your children that you have found difficult to cope with?
When my son was having nightmares and each time he woke up as spoke about a boy in his class at school. So he was being bullied by this child. My son isn’t the sporty type, he’s more a sit down and read a book type. So he doesn’t always fit in.
What are your dreams and hopes for your children?
That they are happy and health. I just want them to grown into happy people. Our world is so full of sadness and they will be faced with more challenges, so happiness is what is important.
