3 Little Ladies and Me

I hope you all had a lovely Mother’s Day. I know it can be a difficult time for lots of people, and judging by the Mumsnet chat forums a disappointing one too, but whatever kind of day you had, I guarantee you’ll love this Mother’s Day poem by 3 Little Ladies and Me – To All Mamas.

Oh Just My Little Blog

Buying a house is definitely up there with the most stressful periods of my life – when we moved into our current place over 3 years ago I swore I’d never move again. I could relate to the ‘To Renovate or not to Renovate‘ dilemma – we ended up with a house that did need a fair bit of work, both decor-wise and general maintenance that just hadn’t been done for years or had been bodged. It was a tough time getting through that first year, but I’m so glad we made the choice we did – I love our house now! Although now I have grand plans for an extension – we’re never happy are we?

A Life in Practice

I think I can tend to be guilty of apologising at any given opportunity, but one place where I really do think it’s important to be able to apologise is when it comes to your children. I know lots of parents feel it’s admitting failure or showing weakness to apologise when they’ve snapped or done something they’d rather not have done, but I genuinely believe that it teaches our children to be more in touch with their own emotions, more empathetic to other people’s emotions, and role models the ability to take responsibility for your own actions. I really enjoyed Claire’s post, Why We Need to Apologise to Our Children – do go and have a read.

Mommy and Rory

Becoming a parent is definitely one of the steepest learning curves I’ve ever been on – it’s taught me so much about being a mum, and taught me so much about myself too. I loved Becky’s post, Things I’ve Learned About Myself Since Becoming a Parent – I could relate so much to every single point – the love of wine, the realisation that I don’t share food, the miraculous ability to function (albeit barely) on 2 hours sleep. Do head over and see how many you can tick off!

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

    Good choice on the renovation front – I have done work to so many houses over the years, but it’s really tough with little ones in tow! Maks me understand why people sometimes buy new!
