#SundayBest week2 – Who I loved this week

The end of another week. Can you believe it’s already nearly February, we’ll blink and it’ll be Christmas again!

This week I’ve been taking part in my usual linky’s and enjoying reading lots of excellent posts.

The first post to feature this week comes from Stephanie AKA Not A Soccer Mom. Although the post was written back in November, I came across it this week via the DreamTeam Linky. As soon as a read the title, Finding out I was pregnantI just knew I had to read it. Stephanie talks about the shock of finding out she was pregnant and how important it is to mourn the loss of your freedom, something which I can relate to.

When we found out we were pregnant it was a surprise to say the least. Ryan and I hadn’t been together very long but fortunately our families and friends were very supportive. I spent nearly 10 months reading baby books and googling every question known to man, I thought I was ready. The one thing I forgot to do was mourn for my old life. It came as a big shock when we took Rory home. Even watching TV was arduous task. In the midst of unbroken sleep and never ending cluster feeds, it’s easy to miss your old carefree life but it’s normal. Stephanie’s post shows new parents that their not alone and that it’s OK to feel a little sad. 

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that everything has worked out the way that it has, but I do think it is important to take a moment to mourn the life that you used to have when you realize how drastically your life is going to change.

You can read Stephanie’s full post by heading across to Not A Soccer Mom.

This week’s second post is from Sonia who blogs over at Buzymum. Even just reading the introduction of her post 10 Ways to Anger a 10 Year Old, had me giggling. I may not own a 10 year old (yet) but it was an interesting and humorous insight into what my future will hold!

  1. Put the wrong flavor crisps in their lunch box.

As a parent of three children, I make it a priority to remember every little like and dislike even though they change on a daily basis (did you hear the sarcasm?). I therefore purposely place items in my 10 year olds lunch box that I know she dislikes for the sheer hell of it, knowing that it will anger her beyond belief.

If you’d like tips on how to anger your 10 year old you can read Sonia’s full list over at Buzymum.

To conclude this week’s #SundayBest I give you another laugh out loud contribution from Barrie, writer of the Daily Dump. One of the things I love most about taking part in linky’s is discovering new blogs that I LOVE! Her post Ridiculous Things I Have Told My Kids…That Aren’t Even Remotely True had me in stitches!

As far as I’m concerned becoming a parent gives you the green light to dish out empty threats and little white lies. Isn’t that the only reason people have kids?

Lie: It’s ham…white ham.
Truth: It could be chicken, turkey, or really any other meat that remotely resembles ham.

White Ham! That is definitely my favourite; you can read all of Barrie’s comical lies over at Daily Dump

So there you have it. Another week of blogging complete! I hope you enjoy having a nosy at the posts I love, don’t forget to stop by next Sunday!
