I hope you are enjoying reading the posts that Katy and I showcase each week, we love reading them and writing a bit about why we loved them.
It’s really lovely to have a reading list all there waiting for me…
I am not very good at leaving my girls, the first time I left them was only a few months ago for two nights when Andy and I went to Florence. The guilt was unbearable leading up to us going away and I honestly didn’t know if I would get on the plane or not. Of course I did and we had a really lovely time.
Yvonne shared with us about the guilt she felt when she left her twin boys, ‘The One Where: Mummy Needs a Break‘. I could relate to this so much and let’s be honest the break does us good and makes us better mummies.
And just like Yvonne when you arrive the guilt does fade away, so why do we feel like we can’t do it again…
This post from Emma made me laugh and worry. I am not ready for the difficult uncomfortable questions yet and I wouldn’t have thought they would come when they are so young. But yes, poor Emma had to deal with THE question, the one that we all would fumble over our words. ‘Mummy, Where do babies come from?‘
Emma did try her best and probably better than I would do caught on the hop. This has made me think I need to have my answer all ready in mind for when it comes and I know with Alice it won’t be long!
I have never set myself any goals for my blog, I just started writing my blog and have carried on doing my thing. But, when I read Caroline’s August Blog Goals post, I thought it was a really good idea to focus on certain areas of your blog each month.
There is so much that comes with writing a blog, a lot that people have no clue about what goes on behind the scenes. I have been trying to do a bit of everything, which means that I never really achieve much in all the areas. Whereas if I just choose to do a few each month I may actually get somewhere.
Caroline also included a couple of personal goals too and this I really liked, as life gets in the way and it’s important to take some time to do the things we love.
Let’s be honest organising parties for little ones is hard work and stressful, there is all the planning that goes into it. Then comes entertaining everyone on the day and making sure everyone has food and a drink in their hand. Then worrying that they are having a good time, honestly its never ending.
But, when I read ‘The Party I Swore You’d Never Have‘ and the reason why, my heart went out to Sarah and I just wanted to reach in give her a hug and tell her to leave the party and go to her son.
The hardest part of being a mum to more than one child is the desire to please them both, to be with them both all the time for all their needs. But, that just isn’t always possible and you have to make some tough decisions, decisions that sometimes your heart and your head have a conflict and you just end up falling over yourself with the guilt.
I am so pleased this year Sarah had both her children by her side…
If you missed any of these last week, why not take a look now you won’t be disappointed.
