As a parent, you can often find yourself focusing on what you may perceive as parenting fails; you fret over the days where you shouted a lot, gave them chicken nuggets and chips again, you didn’t clear your laundry basket or you were too shattered to play pretend doggies for the nineteenth time. It sometimes is easier to focus on the negatives then stop and celebrate your parenting wins. As parents you are on duty 24/7 from the second the word “positive” pops up on a pregnancy test. Even when you aren’t with them physically, your mind never stops.
Following on from my favourite posts of 2016 part one, here is part two with more brilliant bloggers!
Bloggers who actually educate you and can forge the way for making changes and making people think differently make me proud to be part of the community. Stevie from A Cornish Mum did this amazingly with her Open Letter to the BBC regarding type 1 diabetes which made people stand up and listen. She really has made me realise the enormity of type 1 and I think she’s amazing how she handles it and spreads the message so brilliantly. View Post
I love a good roundup of posts. There are so many blogs out there that it can be impossible to read them all, so I thought I’d plop them all in one place for you to enjoy with the leftover turkey and chocolates. You’re welcome!
All Touched Out by Harriet from Toby and Roo, is an ode to randy partners wanting to have a little grope but after an exhausting day parenting and especially with a breastfeeding toddler, it’s the last thing on our minds! So funny but so true – one to tag your partners in for a gentle reminder. View Post
The final guest post of the week comes from Nikki at Yorkshire Wonders. She is sharing her six tips for visiting Walt Disney World in Florida. Take it away Nikki:
If you are considering a trip to Walt Disney World in Florida (woohoo – go for it!), here are my tips for getting the most out of your time. The list is not comprehensive by any means, and I am assuming you are visiting the parks for the full two weeks.
