Welcome back big pink linkers, welcome back for week 30 of linking fun!
I had my very first Freedom Friday last week, the taste of freedom did not come without the inevitable mum guilt, horrendous screaming from poor little assassin child, who was deeply angered by my need for a few hours alone… If you want to see an hour by hour account of what I got up to during my very first day alone for three and a half years then head over to my Facebook page for photographic updates!!
WOWS from last week! The first of Lou’s comes from Real Life Manic Mum with ‘Wine night (2016 v 1996)’ Lou said: ‘This look at the change in nights out from your teens to motherhood cracked me up. The image of getting ready whilst simultaneously using your foot to keep the baby out of the loo bowl was so real for me, as was the slightly over doing things in the excitement of freedom from your life as a Mama!’
The second of Lou’s comes from Topsy Turvy Tribe with ‘A year ago today…surgery.’ Lou said: ‘This post is a letter to their gorgeous son talking about the dramatic events that happened a year ago and giving the reason behind their decision to totally change their lives. It is an amazing story and had me gripped.’
The first of El’s WOWS comes from One Messy Mama with ‘For the NOT so SKINNY mom.’ El said: ‘This is a gorgeous post on accepting your body size and shape and loving yourself for who you are. I can relate to what Jacqui has written and it is soooooo hard for some of us to lose the baby weight but hey, that’s okay!’
The second of El’s comes from Diary Of An Imperfect Mum with ‘Ways children torture their parents.’ El said: ‘Catie pens a rib tickling hilarious but too real self explanatory post about how our children torture us by “speaking in Minion voices” or “not flushing the toilet”. What would you add to your list?’
