What I Read 40


/ by
It's Sunday again and that means it's time for another What I Read and I'm here to share six more great posts that I read this week.

First up is Catie, with her post Eavesdropping on my kids. While recovering from an operation Catie spent a lot of time listening to her children play. In this entertaining post she lists some of her favourite things she heard her children say. I've heard one or two of her favourites too!

When you hear the word 'Friend' what does it make you think? First of all for me I think of Ross, Rachael, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, and Joey, but after that I think of my friends. The people around me who are there for me no matter what. I don't see these people every day but they are still my friend. Crummy Mummy wrote a lovely post about friendship, What makes a true friend? In it she talks about how she has been reunited with an old friend and how easy their reunion was. Please do head over for a read.

If you're anything like me when you were young you always thought you'd meet your soulmate, you'd get married and that would be it. You would be happy. But what happens when you do meet your soulmate but you don't end up together? A touching, and heartbreaking post, from Katie entitled My Soulmate: The One I Loved, The One I Lost brought tears to my eyes. 

I've said before that the Hubby and I don't really bother with Valentine's Day, it's a bit too commercial for us. I loved Kat's Date Night in a Box: A Very Special Valentine's Day Gift, rather than buy a card and a present for her partner she made something special. In this post she has photos and instructions on how to do your own too. 

I remember the first 12 weeks of both my pregnancies were awful, I was so sick. Everything made me feel ill and I was always tired. Having the Hubby there, helping me through it made a lot of difference and although I'm sure it didn't seem it at the time, I really appreciated his help. That's why I loved YouTheDaddy's post Pregnancy Mood Swings and How Expectant Dads Can Help Reduce Them, he clearly has a good idea about what helps his partner. That makes all the difference.

I not only loved Em's post An Open Letter To My Son's Anger because she mentions Inside Out (awesome movie) but because it is different. Em doesn't complain that her son's outbursts are getting her down or that she's sick of his tantrums, no, Em simply writes a lovely letter to the Anger kindly asking it to 'take the weekend off'. It was a great read and a refreshing change to the 'my boy has tantrums' type posts.
