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.
This week our brilliant mum feature is Lisa from The Family Ticket.
Lisa is 35 years old and lives in Bicester with her Husband, two boys, Clark (5) and Elliot (2), along with their cat, Panthro. In their spare time they go out to family friendly places which is great for Lisa as she reviews family days out. Lisa says they also love eating cake…well mostly her anyway!
Thanks for taking part Lisa!
Have you always wanted to be a mum?
God no. I thought I was going to live a life of work and when not working drinking and dancing. I went through a stage of hating kids….that’s still applicable to some!
How did you feel when your children were born?
Both of the boys were sunroof babies. Clark was an emergency c section I was just happy to have him out and Elliot was a planned C section though weirdly that was scarier! Clark was bottle fed as I couldn’t get to grips with breast feeding and I thought my boob was going to drop off. Elliot was breast fed as i had more help 2nd time round. I see it as a social experiment to see if there’s going to be any difference because of the way they’re fed. So far they’re both just nuts!
What have been your most rewarding experiences so far as a mum?
Seeing the boys being kind and thoughtful is so rewarding. I didn’t think I’d be able to do it. The fact that I’ve managed to keep 2 mini humans alive is really cool too.
What are some of your funniest moments to have happened to you as a mum?
Telling Clark to take the fork out of his bottom was not something I was planning on ever having to say in my adult life.
Have there been any situations with your children that you have found difficult to cope with?
Every single day it’s difficult anyone who says otherwise is either lying or on some kind of drugs that I would also like. They have currently hit the fighting age so its particularly difficult at the moment.
What are your dreams and hopes for your children?
Health above all else. Would love them to be able to find a job they love too like their parents have.
