It’s lovely to have you with us at #SharingtheBlogLove!

If you’re new to #SharingtheBlogLove, these are mine and Laura’s favourite posts from last week’s linky. As part of the linky we’d like you to choose one post from each showcase post to head over and leave a comment to show them some extra blog love. It’s always lovely to take a look at our featured posts this week and see how many extra comments they’ve had from you guys!


Candyfloss and Dreams

I think we all have moments where the mum guilt just gets too much and we feel we’re not doing a great job as a parent – however much we try to get rid of those feelings they still manage to rear their ugly head every now and again. I loved this post from Kat, I’ve Failed My Daughter, which takes all that mum guilt and puts it back where it belongs. I truly believe that we’re all doing our best as parents, in whatever situation we find ourselves in and whatever path we take.


Bubbablue and Me

Do you take your children swimming? I think it’s such an important milestone, to be able to swim. But I have to admit that we stopped Max’s swimming lessons after two terms of baby swimming, as he absolutely hated being under the water and it was upsetting him more and more every lesson. We’ve been taking him ourselves, but we’ve reached that point now where he’s happy in the water again and I’m considering lessons. I found Emma’s post, The Big Transition from Baby and Toddler Swimming, really helpful. It details the move from baby classes, to lessons where your child is in the water without a parent alongside, and it was really interesting to read how well Emma’s son has progressed.


A Life In Practice

Do you ever feel down but can’t quite manage to put your finger on why? I’m always saying to my husband, “I feel really down at the moment” but can’t explain exactly what’s bothering me, “Just… everything… and nothing”. I really liked Claire Elizabeth’s post, How to dig out the root of your stress in 5 minutes, which tackles this exact problem. Some really useful tips which I’m definitely going to put into practice.


Daily Dump Show

Max will turn 3 soon and I keep reading about the horrors of the threenager that await us! I loved The 5 Personalities of  a Threenager, which gives me a good idea of what I’m in for! I’m already seeing glimpses of all of them, but I’m sure I’m going to see a lot of the Angry Dictator and the Drama Queen once we hit 3 properly!


Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment!
