Okay so we all admit that this parenting malarkey can be tough right? From the second the bundle of joy pops out (or is laboriously pushed out!) they're constantly on your mind and more often than not, creating havoc. Kirsten hit a new parenting low after a particularly trying time recently and I think we can all relate to this one. Head over and give her your much needed support.
With all the obstacles us parents face the simple life can seem like a mirage. We strive to find that sweet spot and hope that it sticks this time. Inevitably it doesn't and we're left scrambling once again. Kaye thinks she has found the perfect equation of motherhood and shares it with us. I wonder if she's right and if so how long it will last?
Why do mums blog? There are so many of us out there that I sometimes wonder why we all do it. It's certainly not an easy thing to do and even if it's just a hobby, finding the time for it can be... well, tough. When I came across Talya's post it made me both laugh and nod along and I think you'll enjoy reading. Check out The 10 REAL reasons why mums blog.
With an adventurer in the house in the form of LP I know I'm in for a world of broken limbs, scraped knees and bumps on the head. From the moment LP was born I knew he'd be a thrill-seeker and I accept that but at the same time he scares the life out of me! He's had a nickname for a long time, a rendition of The Terminator. Sarah has her own little thrill-seeker too and she's nicknamed her Dangermouse. Why not pop over and read about her adventures.
Taking care of children can sometimes feel like you're locked in a cell waiting for the inevitable. Some days are hard, in fact they can often feel like you're slowly being tortured. Catie wrote a brilliant post on just this subject listing the ways in which children torture their parents. It was a great read and I suggest you head over there right now!
How many of you check your breasts regularly? I'm guessing not many, I know I don't. I also know that I should and that finding something early can ensure you're still around to see your children grow. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and I loved a post by @GrohlMrs. Why I will NOT be getting my tatas out for Breast Cancer was a brilliantly written post about the reasons behind many Breast Cancer Awareness campaigns. Please head over there and read. And while I've got you, be sure to Touch, Look, Check.
I'd love you to head over the these blogs and show some love!
