#Maternity Mondays week 10

Welcome to #MaternityMondays week 10! Wow 10 weeks already! Thank you all for your support so far, we love this little linky – celebrating all aspects of pregnancy and parenthood.

I’m feeling a bit soppy this week. After a few weeks of horrible illness, Monkey is looking more like himself again. His chicken pox spots are fading and we had lovely fun in the garden yesterday which brought a bit of colour back to his cheeks. Both of the kiddies have been pretty poorly recently and with them both well and smiley again I think I am just relieved and remembering how lucky I am to have such gorgeous happy kiddies. I love being their Mummy, it’s the hardest thing I have ever done at times but definitely the best and I adore them both.

I’m also a bit under the weather myself now which may be contributing to all this soppiness! But I am feeling much less exhausted than last week and looking forward to hosting again this week. I am hugely grateful to Emma for taking the reins last week and here is what she had to say about your posts.

“My favourite posts from last week were this one from Little Hearts Big Love. It was about natural caesarean births and wow, it sounded so much calmer and, well, more natural from what I experienced.

Run Jump Scrap‘s offering was a lovely ‘count your blessings’ post about how, in our bust lives we can all forget what good things we have. It certainly made me feel all warm and fuzzy.

My other favourite was from Dietician’s Life with advice for parents whose children won’t eat veg. With a four year old, I’ve been through many eating phases and children, toddlers especially, can be strange little creatures who can love carrots one day and the next, regard them like something the dog coughed up. Here are some very exciting ways to sneak veg into your child’s diet. For me, the beetroot-pink pancakes are just amazing.”


Next week is Mother’s Day and there will be a special #MaternityMondays linky which will open on Mother’s Day (Sunday) and run until Wednesday. In addition to your normal bump updates and other Motherhood posts we would love to read any Mother’s Day related posts – be it a homage to your Mum or Wife, some Mother’s Day crafts or how your kids showed their appreciation for you on Mother’s Day.

I also have a little Mother’s Day giveaway running at the moment where you could win a £50 E-Voucher for Custom Canvas, be sure to check it out!

Now it is over to you! Please grab our badge and share the linky love by commenting on a few other blog posts, it would be lovely if we could grow a little community to share the highs and lows of motherhood and parenting.

The linky is open Mondays only from 6.30am to midnight.

    Thank you for hosting! Glad you hear the ‘pox are fading but sorry to hear you’re not feeling so great yourself. I hope you feel better soon. I am hosting a nursery print giveaway on my blog by a brilliant upcoming brand called Buddy and Bear – I hope you don’t mind me sharing the post on this week’s linky! Nicki x
