@PPPMAGAZINE: How do you juggle being a mum and work?


@edibow: Being on it with the diary and great support

@PPPMAGAZINE: Were your two pregnancies very different?

@edibow: Not really.  I loved being pregnant, even with the peeing and lack of sleep
@PPPMAGAZINE: What was your biggest ‘well they don’t tell you that’ moment while you were pregnant?

@edibow: Being through it twice, didn’t have any surprises really
@PPPMAGAZINE: How did you choose your children’s names?

@edibow: Spike stuck with us after we bought Spike Milligan children’s poetry book. Rudy was from a book and Lemonheads BSide

@PPPMAGAZINE: What’s been your worst ‘oops moment’ as a mum?

@edibow: Being a mum is a whole learning experience, that’s a daily phrase

@PPPMAGAZINE: What are your three mummy must-haves?

@edibow: Great support, food and cuddles
@PPPMAGAZINE: What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever been given?

@edibow: Trust your instincts

@PPPMAGAZINE: And the worst?

@edibow: Read one of those books that tells you how to be a mum.. NO thanks
@PPPMAGAZINE: What would be your advice to a new mum?

@edibow: Trust your instincts and speak to friends family about it all, don’t forget to ask for help

@PPPMAGAZINE: What’s the funniest thing Rudy’s done/said?

@edibow: We get one of those every day.  He refers to Spike as a little piece of pie which makes us laugh
@PPPMAGAZINE: Are you the type of mum you thought you’d be?

@edibow: I didn’t really think in advance about it. I just hope I’m a good one

@PPPMAGAZINE: Proudest mum moment?

@edibow: Them being healthy and happy on a daily basis

@PPPMAGAZINE: Do you think you’ll have any more children?

@edibow: Maybe
@PPPMAGAZINE: What are you looking forward to as the kids get older?

@edibow: Them teaching each other things and exploring the world and what it has to offer

@PPPMAGAZINE: Have they been in the studio with you?

@edibow: Rudy is always with me but not Spike yet
