I was nominated for the Liebster award!

The gorgeous @Maisies_Mum was kind enough to nominate me for the Liebster award! As I have only been blogging for 2 months. It means so much that my blog was even considered! It is much appreciated you lovely lady! I had been feeling a bit down this morning about the blog and that I didn't get the response I thought I would when I put out an advert for others to share their stories and this has made me feel so much better! It has reaffirmed that I must be doing something right (I hope)!!

Here are the rules: 

1. Thank your nominator and link back to them from your post.

2. Answer the questions you’ve been set and tag your nominator when you share your post on social media.

3. Nominate 5- 11 bloggers to answer some questions from you. Don’t forget to let them know!

My questions were set by Jennifer (@maisies_mum) 

What made you start your blog?
When I joined  Instagram and was opened up to the world of parenting blogs; I noticed there didn't seem to be one that dealt with the issue of your baby being in NICU and needing a life threatening operation. I wanted to be brutally honest about how you really feel as well as laughing about the highs and lows of raising a toddler!

How did you pick your blog name?
I decided pretty early on I wanted the NICU Mum name and as I was honestly confessing to what it is like to be one, it seemed to be the obvious choice!

Unconditionally loving and being loved by someone.
