#withkindnessandlove 1 – stories of kindness and sharing some blog love

Friday Fabulous Five #69

The Friday Fabulous Five is my regular feature where I share five of my favourite blog posts that I have read in the previous fortnight – posts that have made me laugh, made me cry or made me think.  Here is my latest selection of five fabulous blog posts:

  • Sometimes it’s hard to talk about the challenges of parenthood without being dismissed, or feeling like others perceive you as showing off or competing.  I love this post from Ellamental Mama which sums up some of those struggles and encourages us to talk about the highs and lows of parenting and to share them.
