Friday Fabulous Five #63

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:

 

  • With my big girl being due to start school in September, I’m definitely feeling a need to stop and cherish the moments.  This beautiful heartfelt post from Diary of an Imperfect Mum about her Growing Pains really resonated with me – the awareness that your children are growing up so quickly and those precious moments pass by all too soon.

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:

 

  • Blogging is a great way of sharing our thoughts, reflections and parenting moments but it can also feel like it takes over our lives.  This reflection from Five Little Doves about why she blogs and on focusing on being a mummy instead of blogging about it is something I could really relate to.

  • I have to confess that out of sight in most of my indoor Instagram shots is a pile of clutter that I’ve just quickly moved out of the way so I had to chuckle at Life is Knutts’ post about Instagram vs Reality.

Friday Fabulous Five #58

The Friday Fabulous Five is my regular feature where I share five of my favourite blog posts that I have read in the previous week – posts that have made me laugh, made me cry or made me think.  I’ve had a couple of weeks off from sharing my Friday Fabulous Five so this week’s posts are my favourites from the last few weeks:

 

  • I always enjoy a good parody and this version of “Vogue” from The Anxious Dragon celebrating all different types of cake had me singing along (whilst making me very hungry too!)
  • I love this beautiful poem from Mum Turned Mom exploring her journey through life in response to the prompt “grow.”
  • Most of us probably have some ideal of motherhood that we feel we fall short of – this reflection from Collecting Moments on why she is not Super Mom and that it’s ok is beautiful – I especially loved her reflection that “Motherhood is sacrifice, hardship and joy… it’s kindness and strength personified.”
  • It’s easy to feel like we are “good” parents when we’re out and about with our children behaving angelically and then feel like we’re getting it wrong during those times when our children are having tantrums or meltdowns.  I love this reflection from Hot Pink Wellingtons about being a good mum during the fun times as well as the challenging ones.

  • My hubby is great with the girls but there are definitely moments when I’m running around like a headless chicken and he is a little oblivious to it all so this post from Confessions of a Crummy Mummy about the differences between mums and dads definitely resonated with me –
  • I loved Northern Mum’s confessions in her post “I am the mum that…” – the line about shouting like a half-crazed psychopath inside the house and then stepping out the door like Mary Poppins made me laugh – glad it’s not just me that can be like this!

With this week being Heart Week, my Friday Fabulous Five is all about other heart family bloggers.  Here are five fabulous posts which give a little insight into the world of life of as a heart family and the impact that CHD has on our lives:

 

  • Heart Mammi shared a post about how her world shrinks to those few days in the run-up to hospital appointments and how she can’t think beyond that date – a feeling that I can certainly relate to, especially with surgery dates.
