There are certain things that I remember so fondly from my own childhood and that I can’t wait to do with my own children, and I don’t think there’s anything that comes higher on that list than going to Disney! We went twice when I was little, the first time when I was 10 and then second when I was 16, and both times were absolutely amazing. Laura’s post, Disney Memories, brought it all back for me. She’s about to head off to Florida in a few months and I loved this post reminiscing about her own previous trips. When it comes to childhood memories, Disney just gets it spot on!
The thought of my own children getting married is such a long way off, but equally my own wedding seems a long time ago now, and I’m sure that by the time my own children are getting married that I’ll have forgotten so much about the planning and preparations. I loved Maria’s post, Practical Tips for Your Daughter’s Wedding Morning, which perfectly captures the excitement and chaos of the wedding morning when you’re in the bridal party. There are some great tips here if you have a wedding coming up, but even if you don’t, I can’t resist a beautiful wedding post!
Are you an overthinker? I always have been, for as long as I can remember, and although there are lots of benefits to it, it can really limit me in a lot of ways. So often I can feel myself withdrawing from life, feeling like a failure, and letting those negative voices in my head win. I think it’s so important on days like that to give yourself a mental kick to get outside, to get out there, and start living life. I loved this post, Stay Out Of The Box, from Louise, which pinpoints that feeling perfectly.
I think it goes without saying that we all want a great relationship with our children. But so often life gets in the way of building it and we can find that we don’t have the relationship we wanted to have. The day to day interactions we have really are so important. I loved Kate’s post, Keys To Building A Successful Relationship With Your Kids which has some great approaches. I particularly liked the closing thought, that just because something hasn’t worked one day, don’t give up! Our children are allowed to have off days just as much as we are and, particularly in the toddler and teenage years, your best attempts might be thrown back in your face, but it’s important to keep on trying.
Did you catch any of these last time? If not, please head over and give them a read and a comment.
