Friday Fabulous Five #55

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. Here are this week’s fabulous five:


  • Mum Turned Mom shared a beautiful poem prompted by the word “treat” which describes all the little things that make such a difference in a loving relationship.
  • Finding different ways of encouraging imaginative play and helping stories come to life is something I really enjoy and I loved Mudpie Friday’s small world recreation of “We’re Going on a Bear Hunt” – something I’m very tempted to try at home or perhaps adapt to fit other stories.
  • I loved the reflection from Cresting the Hill – of Midlife all about the things that make her happy – her thoughts about her happiness being “based on sunny mornings and cups of coffee, on laughter and shared history” really resonated with me.
  • Motherhood can feel very lonely at times – especially during those challenging moments when those last shreds of patience are ebbing away. This post from Life with Baby Kicks is a wonderful reminder that we all have those moments and that we are not alone in those struggles.
  • Whilst my daughter doesn’t start primary school until later this year, the idea of rewarding children for 100% attendance is something that has never sat well with me and this post from The Reading Residence sums up a lot of my own thoughts on it.


I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did and have a good weekend! You can also find some of the posts from past weeks on my Friday Fab 5 board over on Pinterest.

    1. You’re very welcome – it definitely seemed from the comments that it’s a view shared by a lot of parents.

    1. My pleasure – it’s definitely inspired me to try something like that with the girls! 🙂
