What I Read June Roundup

Another month and another What I Read Roundup, check out these brilliant posts from bloggers from across the globe.

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read June Roundup: Lexi
Lexi from Scribbles and Crumbs
What I Read 20 brought six fantastic posts mostly from mums. Lexi shared I See You, Momma and it was a lovely tribute to all mums out there. Forget worrying whether you're doing it right, just love. In What do Parents Need? An imperfect mum writes about joining in with her children, rather than worrying about them growing up. A poem, This is My Motherhood: Mundane Monday Mornings, written by Colleen summed up motherhood well and I loved the last line. As we watch our children grow allowing them to make their own mistakes is a challenge, A Mother's Work was written from that perspective and I loved reading. Giggling along with our children is something we often forget to do while we're busy putting washing in the machine or cooking dinner but Sara took a moment to enjoy Playing at the Park. Finally Shae Baxter shared her favourite places to find photos (with no attribution required) for your blog.

Dear Dads Blog
To celebrate Father's Day What I Read 21 was all about the Dads. @DearDads1979 shared a touching post about how he brought a stressful day at work home with him. I loved this post. One More Dad Blog wrote a brilliant review of Tomorrowland, from the perspective of a dad of girls. It was a great review, and one that convinced me to see the movie. If you didn't know, Apple Music launched this week and Dadyougeek has a post about what you need to know. Tim, who writes at Slouching Towards Thatcham, took a day off and spent time reconnecting with his wife, which they both enjoyed. John Adams discussed equality with his six year old daughter and made me realise that dads face discrimination too. Al Ferguson wrote a helpful post about understanding Google Analytics, and if you're anything like me you'll find it invaluable.

Maria of Collecting Memories
In What I Read 22 there was a great mix of posts. Izzie has been learning to let go as her daughter heads Across the Pond to the US. Amy encouraged us all to seize the day with her post and talks about her accident. I was shocked to learn what had happened to Amy but am glad she is back to health. Mel stayed calm under rather stressful conditions in Breathe in, Breathe out, now... RELAX Part 2. Mrs Tubbs talked about the things she's learned from blogging and is enjoying being her own blogger. A great read came from Maria and it was all about writing and strength, Writing with Confidence was inspiring. Susan had me laughing out loud at her post The good ol' times. WAIT I'm only 35. I'm 34 years old and remember most of the things Susan talks about, it does make me feel old too! A definite read that will have you laughing. 

That's it for What I Read from now until I get back from our holiday. By the time I get back you can be sure I'll have plenty of posts to share. You'll still find me here, writing as usual, but What I Read is on pause and will return in September.
