Thursday Team Blog It Vlog It Linky

Happy Thursday lovelies.

How is half term going for you all? Both myself and Trixie have been fighting of colds so we have been a tired household in general but it has been a lovely break from the school run routine.

We are moving in a couple of weeks so it has also given me the chance to do a huge amount of packing. Of course this means we now feel like we are living in a shell but it will be worth it in the end. I do love to be organised!

My Favourites

The responsibility of parenting

I am a huge believer of encouraging children to take responsibility and to help them flourish into independent young people. My Mother-in-law did this with her children and my husband is now very handy around the house when I need him to be. I will be forever grateful to her. Of course I am way off the teenage years so I am in a lovely sense of denial that I don’t need to think beyond school just yet…. But I know this will soon fly by.

Mum Contract

This is a very accurate portrayal of what being a parent is. I often wonder if I had known all of this before would I have been in such a rush to become a mum… Of course I would have and I wouldn’t really change any of it…. Well, not all of it anyway. This contract should come in the small print of all pregnancy tests or midwife notes.

Sarah’s Favourites

Take a walk on the mild side Dad

I really enjoyed this post, it was food for thought. I hadn’t really thought about what super power I would have if I had one, but I loved the suggestion of instant hindsight and I too would love instant hindsight. I hate the hindsight that you have and then dwell upon for days – instant would be much easier!

What do you do?

A very honest and moving post from Kate about the question ‘what do you do’? Well worth a read with some great advice including ‘at times you have to feel the fear, and do it anyway’
