I’ve been having a bit of a rough time off-screen so tonight I decided that instead of dwelling on it any more than I already have I was going to go and catch up on all of the blogs I’ve neglected during my misery period.
And, as I’m kind like that, I’m going to share some of my favourite posts with you in case there are any blogs I like that you haven’t found yet (or if, like me, you’ve had a bit of enforced offline time).
First up is a post a lot of my Twitter followers have already read if my feed is anything to go by, but one that deserves to be read a lot more. This post by SnooAndMe is really honest and very very powerful. Give the whole blog a read and leave her some comments.
I absolutely LOVE this post by Dorkymum. It’s about how photos don’t have to be perfect to be meaningful and I think it will strike a chord with most of us. I really love the Paris photo. At least the sparkler made it in!
You can probably tell that a blog with the tagline “I’m the mom who makes you feel better about your parenting” is going to be a good one, but MotherhoodWTF really is one of my favourite blogs. The blog post I’ve chosen is just one that really makes me smile, but you should check out the others too.
SAHDandProud writes very powerful, very honest posts and you should really read them, but I urge you – no, I implore you – to go and have a look at his Crafty Corner posts. They are genius. He also seems to have the best search engine tags to his blog ever.
One of my favourite Twitter friends is LovelyLeo’sMummy and although her post about Leo clapping is really asking for opinions about television viewing I’m just loving the videos. Leo is very cute and his Mummy clearly adores him.
MinistryOfMum‘s tweets are very funny and her blog is much the same. This post detailing the Health & Safety rules of parenting has a fantastic punchline, and some key information for those of us who are still quite new to the game.
It’sAMummy’sLife needs advice from working Mums about potty training, but also talks about that all-too-familiar Mummy Guilt. In a very eloquent kind of way. Give her some advice if you have some to share, and then check out the rest of her blog too.
This OneBorn and NetMums post by MissingSleep is a brief but very sweet account of how happiness can come out of nowhere and sweep you off your feet in a moment. Sometimes we all need to take the time to remember how that happened to us too.
I really enjoy reading about the development of other people’s babies and this post by Magahabellybean chronicles the first seven months of Liam’s life. It also has the most gorgeous photos of the big man, who looks as chunky as my six month old Teddy. Baby chub is the best!
The posts that make me all warm and fuzzy inside are those about that real Mummy Love that we all know but don’t always talk about. I know I try not to write about it too much because I’d probably never stop. But this post by TheMummyLife is just so lovely it makes me want to write about my love for Ted more often.
These blogs really have seen me through some tough times recently, and while I haven’t commented enough (for some reason my phone won’t let me comment on anything at the moment) I’ve appreciated every one of them.
If you like them please let them know, and if you think I might like yours leave me a link in the comments and I’ll have a look. If you make me smile you’ll win Brownie points.
