I can’t believe I am writing my fourth Sharing The Blog Love Showcase post already, the weeks are just flying by. I really need time to slow down, as I am not ready for summer for be over and Alice to start school…
What a great week it was for Sharing The Blog Love, so many fantastic posts linking up and I have really enjoyed reading them all. You don’t make my job easy to pick four posts to share with you all.
The Cotswold Mum Blog
When you have a baby you want to shout about it from the rooftops and share your good news with friends and family. You have probably spent time thinking about that moment, I know I did. When I read the title of this post ‘When friends announce the arrival of someone else’s baby on Facebook‘, my heart sank a little. I was sad for the parents that had this lovely moment taken from them. We live in a world fully immersed in social media, I get that, my life is on social media. But, I put what I choose to put out there for the world to see and read. And, isn’t that everyone’s personal right to do that. Especially when that moment is such a precious one, one that you may not have again and one that you are so proud of. I really hope the parents weren’t too upset about someone stealing their thunder, I know I would have been.
Lucy At Home
The school holidays are great and I am definitely a parent that look forward to them and I don’t think, oh no this is going to be torture. I have the girls with me most of the time anyway, so the weeks when Alice isn’t at preschool it’s not a big difference. But, they do need to be entertained and with the summer holidays being long and friends being away on holiday, I need some help. So, I was thrilled to read Lucy’s fab post ‘ School Holiday Activities – Plan your Pins’, to get some inspiration. I like to be organised and know what we are going to be doing and this post talks about planning your weeks. Lucy talks about having themed weeks and does a planner with different activities on each day. Such a great idea!
Toys Tears and Tea
When you become a parent you think you have no clue what you are doing, but then gradually it gets easier and you find your feet. I wish I had read a post like Alice’s when I was pregnant, ‘ 10 Things I learnt about having a new baby’ . Such great advice and this one really stands out for me…
“You know best. You will learn all the different noises and cries, and if you want to then welcome advice from others. But just remember, at the end of the day people will give you conflicting advice, it is your baby so feel free to do it your way!”
So true! Definitely a post worth reading for any soon to be or new mummies.
It can be hard to come up with new lunch ideas for the girls every day and I do worry that they get bored with the same rotation of dishes I serve up. It was great to see this post linked up ‘ 5 Quick & Healthy Lunch Ideas for Children’, I will definitely be giving these ideas a try over the summer holiday, especially the Pizza Toasties, we are big pizza fans in our house and these sound delicious and quick to make, always a bonus!
I hope you enjoy reading these as much as I did and if you would like to be part of Sharing the Blog Love, we would love to have you. Pop here and link up your posts...
