I can’t believe the summer holidays are over, did they whizz by for everyone else? My little Alice starts school tomorrow and she is so excited that I think she will burst when she wakes in the morning and I finally say yes to her daily question ‘is it school today?’. For any mums who had little ones starting preschool or school I hope it went ok, I sometimes think its worse for the parents.
Anyone onto #SharingtheBlogLove, so many brilliant posts last week. Here are my favourite ones…
Before I became a mummy I thought I knew what it would be like, I had seen so many of my friends become mum’s and spent a lot of time with them and their little ones. But you truly do not know what it is like until you become a parent. I think we can all relate to this post One Day, where we long for the days where we can drink a hot drink and take a long undisturbed shower. But, then we also know that one day we won’t be needed for all the things that seem hard right now and we will miss them.
As a blogger I love to read posts about blogging from other bloggers, as most of the time you can either relate to them or learn from them. When I read Jaki’s post Blogging and Me, I could really relate to it. It can be really hard to get to a place where you feel completely on top of everything, as there is so much that comes with blogging. Then on top of that you have everything else to deal with in your life and for me blogging is always last on the list. Hopefully over time I will get better and quicker at certain parts and this will give me more time.
Yes, Yes, Yes! Second Child Syndrome is a thing! I definitely parent Holly differently to Alice. Holly gets away with so much more than Alice ever did. Why? because I have learnt to pick my battles, I have learnt how to play their games so that I get the result I want, but they think they are the winner! I 100% agree that it is a good thing, that it is a sign that you’ve grown as a parent. That you are taking steps to loosing that mummy guilt, I too am still working on this part. I promise you won’t be disappointed in taking a read of this one!
As someone that loves to write letters to my daughters, I love to read other peoples too. This post, To My Daughter, Now you are Six, is beautifully written. When you read letters like this you get to see a different side to the relationship between parent and child and the raw emotion is there for everyone to see. Plus it has the sweetest picture of Kat and Evie. Why not pop over and take a look.
If you missed any of these last week, it would be great if you could pop over and give them some love…
