It’s that time of week again where I share with you my favourite posts from last weeks #SharingtheBlogLove. It was a great week with lots of lovely posts to read, making picking really hard.
In between having the girls I went back to work part time, but once Holly arrived it wasn’t financially beneficial for me to go back. We made the decision for me to stay home until the girls are at school. Reading Kirsty’s post, Missing Work – The Truth Of A Stay At Home Mum, I could relate to it. While I’m not sure I exactly miss my old job, I do miss the sense of belonging somewhere, having colleagues and feeling like I contribute to something.
The Rhyming Mum
This made me laugh and it is spot on – A letter to pre-mum me! If only we could go back before we had children and tell ourselves a few things. I also see people who don’t have children looking at me, probably judging and thinking just you wait. Because life with children is nothing like you think it’s going to be. This is a post you don’t want to miss out reading!
A Blonde And A Baby
Do you ask your children to hug friends and relatives? I know that I don’t. It’s not something that I have ever thought to do, but when I read this post from Beth, Why You Should Not Force Your Child To Give Hugs, its clear that some people do. I can see how this might seem like a nice thing to do, but from the child’s point of view it can make them feel uncomfortable. I also think that when they naturally do it, it means more.

Autumn has definitely arrived and this is a great post for getting your child talking about autumn, Autumn Spotters. Getting them to see the different colours of the leaves, spotting things that grow only in the Autumn and getting them used to wearing coats and wellies!
If you missed any of these please pop over and give them some love…
