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 Sophie who blogs at Soph Obsessed.
Sophie lives in Manchester with her husband, and their six year old son, Henry, and their 4 week old son Hugo. They also have two dogs. An Olde English Bulldog and a French Bulldog. Sophie loves reading books in her spare time although says she doesn’t get to do it enough now especially with a newborn baby.
Thanks for taking part Sophie!
Have you always wanted to be a mum?
Always. Since being younger I knew that being a mum was my calling.
How did you feel when your children were born?
When Henry was born I was younger and I felt very overwhelmed by it all. I worried constantly I didn’t give myself a moment to just enjoy him. We have had Hugo almost seven years later and with age comes more confidence I find that I’m just absorbing everything about him.
What have been your most rewarding experiences so far as a mum?
Seeing Henry blossom into a kind and loving child. There are moments where I just think to myself “I played a part in creating him.”
What are some of your funniest moments to have happened to you as a mum?
Henry recently visited the farm on a school trip and they were learning about cows and milk. My son proceeded to tell the class and his teachers that his mum was pretty much a cow because I produce milk for Hugo!
Have there been any situations with your children that you have found difficult to cope with?
Henry went through a really sick period where he was constantly ill. He lost a lot of weight and we were really worried about him. I struggled with that feeling of not being able to help him.
What are your dreams and hopes for your children?
To be whatever and whoever they want without the fear of judgement holding them back!
