Welcome to week 20 of #MaternityMondays! Thanks so much to all you lovely bloggers who are continuing to link up very week, I am loving our little community, celebrating the joys (and sharing the challenges) of pregnancy, life with babies and motherhood in general.
Last week was my turn and I loved reading all of your posts as ever, here were my faves:
I love a bit of honesty, sharing the good and the hard bits of life as a parent, so I loved Love from clueless mum’s confessions of times when things don’t always go to plan and she has to ignore her perfectionist side. I think we all know there is no such thing as a perfect mum!
There is no denying that time flies when you a parent too and I loved Four Walls Rainy Days‘ post looking back at how her little one has grown – and I can very easily relate to her feeling of worrying about blinking in case you miss something!
Finally, All the beautiful things‘ post really made me chuckle as she raised a question I had never considered before… why does everyone (including strangers in the street) care so much about how much baby weighed when they born. She has some amusing suggestions so have a read 🙂
My week this week hasn’t been great if I am honest – LM’s problems with napping turned out to be a return of her reflux and I have felt so so low this week and just like I wasn’t coping at all. I wrote about it (and will be linking it up below) and as always the wonderful blogging community has offered me so much support that I am feeling a lot better again. We have been to the Dr and are trying a new medication which I hope works and I am trying to pick myself up and be the best Mummy I can to both Monkey and LM, as feeling miserable and snappy wasn’t helping anyone.
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.
