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 Becky from Mommy and Rory. Becky is a 26 year old mama of one, living in Sheffield with her little boy Rory and her not so better half Ryan! Having just returned to work, Becky says she can now class herself as a full time working mum! Aside from blogging and (attempting) to run the house, Becky says that she doesn’t get much spare time, but when she does, sheI enjoys eating out and drinking wine…lots of wine!
Thanks for taking part Becky!
Have you always wanted to be a mum?
To be completed honest it’s not something I ever seriously considered. When asked I always said I wanted children but not just yet. When I first found out I was pregnant it came as a bit of a surprise. At the time I may not have been ready but there was never any doubt in my mind, ready or not I was going to be a mama!
How did you feel when your children were born?
It was the best moment of my life. OK so half my insides were hanging out (I had a 3rd degree tear) but I couldn’t have cared less. I’ll never forget the first time I kissed him. I remember thinking that my lips will always be the first to have kissed his. Knowing that he was my baby was the most wonderful feeling.
What have been your most rewarding experiences so far as a mum?
Were only just over a year in but I think the moments I’ve enjoyed the most are the lazy afternoon cuddles we enjoyed while I was on maternity leave. It was great to come home after a morning of playgroup or being out on a walk and snuggle together on the sofa. When I’m rushed of my feet at work I often look at the clock and think we’d be snoozing if I was at home.
What are some of your funniest moments to have happened to you as a mum?
It has to be poops! In the early days there were so many poonami’s it was unreal! I remember one time we were out in the car and Rory did the biggest poo of his entire life. He was wearing the cutest white baby romper from next with little sailing boats on it. The poo literally exploded everywhere. We were close to throwing away the car seat never mind the romper! It was one of those moments where you just have to laugh because if not you’d cry.
Have there been any situations with your children that you have found difficult to cope with?
For us weaning was really difficult. Although Rory is now a lot better he’s still pretty fussy. At the beginning there were days where it felt like he wouldn’t eat anything. I used to worry so much which only made things worse. Once I took a step back and relaxed a little we got into a better routine and things happened a lot easier. He’s still a pain in the ass from time to time but now I try not to stress. As the golden oldies will tell you “he’ll eat when he’s hungry”.
What are your dreams and hopes for your children?
I want Rory to have the opportunities that I didn’t. I want him better himself and to reach his full potential. But most of all I want him to happy.
