#bigpinklink WEEK 2!
Well, what can I say? What do I say to all of you amazing linkers, who came last week, for the first ever #bigpinklink, and linked up a whopping, mind blowing, 74 posts!!!!!!!! All I can say is, me and Pink Pear Bear were overwhelmed, and are sending each and every one of you a virtual hug, kiss, and high five, and raising a virtual (well, mine isn’t actually virtual right now, it’s real,) glass of Sauvignon! Thank you so much, you are all amazing!
We said last week that each week, we would pick a featured post. This was inevitably really hard, so for the first week, we have actually picked 2 each! My first featured post comes from Island Living 365, with her post ‘Why Having a C-Section Doesn’t Make Me A Failure’, a poignant, beautifully written post about why she refuses to feel like a failure for having a caesarean. I loved this, because the thing I feel most passionate about in parenting, is for parents to stop feeling guilty for their choices, or things that are out of their control, and to end the relentless ways that people seem to find to cause parenting guilt.
My second featured post comes from Mummy Rules, with her post ‘Romance Through The Ages: Child, Teen, Mother & Lover’, a hilarious, but also touching look at Valentines day from childhood, to how it is now being an adult. She basically wrote the story of my Valentines Day life, it was quite uncanny…!
Pink Pear Bear’s favourites were Everything’s Rosie…And George, with her post ‘I Missed The First 30 Weeks’, an amazing read, about her concealed pregnancy, and not finding out that she was pregnant with little G until she was 30 weeks along. Really powerful stuff.
Pink Pear Bear’s second featured post is by Mudpie Fridays, with the post ‘Going On A Bear Hunt Story Bag’, a practical post for those of you who love to be creative, with step by step instructions to making up your own sensory bear hunt kit, in a bag, to take out with you and have masses of fun! All based on the book of the same name!
