So lets find out more about the family behind Babi a Fi.
1.) Tell me a bit about yourself and your family ?
My name's Jess, I'm 27, and I share my life with Marianna - 15 months and already living the terrible twos - and my long suffering partner, Anthony.
2.) Where do you live ?
We live in Cwmbran, the best town in South Wales. (I might be just a little biased!)
3.) What is your favourite thing to do as a family where you live ?
There is a lovely walking route laid out alongside the Afon Llywd river about ten minutes away from our house. It leads to a skate park and Cwmbran boating lake, with a big children's play park. I also love taking Marianna to Greenmeadow Community Farm to see the animals.
In my day job I'm a councillor for Torfaen County Borough and Cwmbran Community councils, so we're lucky in that we always know what community events are going on, although we don't make it to anywhere near as many as we plan on. Hopefully as Marianna grows it will be a little easier to get out of the door at something close to the time we need to leave the house...
4.) If you could live anywhere where would you ?
I would love to visit lots of places. I've never been to the USA, and I have my heart set on making it to Japan some day. I wouldn't really want to live anywhere else but Wales though.
5.) Did you grow up close to where you live now and what are your favourite childhood memories of where you grew up?
I did - my mum and dad live just three streets away from us. We moved around a fair bit before moving to that house, but it was always in the same town. Cwmbran was - and is! - a great place to grow up; it has lots of amenities right on the doorstep, and I have lots of great memories of visiting parks, climbing mountains, cycling alongside the canal, and, like any 21st century gal, playing video games in my bedroom.
6.) Have you got any exciting family plans for the year ahead?
I'm most excited this year for Christmas. (I know, already!) Marianna didn't really have a clue what it was all about last year, but we're planning lots of special things for this year.
7.) What is your favourite thing about family life ?
I love all the little things. The smiles, the cuddles, and those fleeting moments where all is right with the world. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
Thank you so much for taking part Jess I loved reading your answers, I am excited for Christmas too this year as I think my little two will be super excited. I hope that you get to visit Japan someday soon and enjoy all the precious cuddles and smiles with Marianna whilst she is small (love her name by the way).
