Sarah from The Real Lara Shoe,
Sarah from Admissions of a Working Mother,
Briann from Bumbi’s Mom, &
Sarah from Kippers and Curtains
and the 24 favourites #FabFridayPost since our First Round Up in 2015 are…
1. Sarah, Admissions Of A Working Mother, on BECAUSE CHRISTMAS IS A TIME FOR CHILDREN AND EVERY CHILDHOOD IS WORTH FIGHTING FOR. This post is a pre-Christmas post but still relevant. Sarah, has also inspired us to do the same. You can see how we got on here: Letter from Santa and everyone at NSPCC. Thank you Sarah for your inspiration once again.
2. Erin, Nourishing My Scholar with Our Family Hike at Autrey Mill Nature Preserve and My New Camera! Her photos are so beautiful! So full of passion. I love Gabriel in his Star Lord outfit. I think he is pretty awesome that he is able to let his imagination run free in the wild wood.
3. Our Seaside Baby with ‘A letter to my two year old’. In Sarah’s The Real Lara Shoe, words… I love the way Polly has described different aspects of her little boy. It’s so easy to forget what our little ones were like even just a year ago. Polly has a beautiful record which she will be able look back on and remember.
4. Min, Single Mum Speaks, with “Dear Mum-to-Be, here is my rubbish advice”. Min has reminded us that there is no such thing as perfect mum. We do our very best and that’s what matters regardless of what the strangers onlooker judgmental acts maybe. Brilliantly written. Again please do check her out.
5. Bella, Dear Mummy Blog with Are you ready for Storm Elsa? Bella has outlined the precautions that you should take when Storm Elsa arrives. I think Bella is one creative writer who can whipped up the all seriousness with a twist – so to speak.
6. Lexi, Musings and Makings with New Years’ Day in Aldeburgh, Suffolk. I love how simple her day went – a normality in reality. No need for extravagance party – just as it is – simple plain Black Cherry soda with ginseng. It is a such a sweet post.
7. Briann from Bumbi’s Mom, has chosen the Queen of sarcasm: Mumma Knows with “Parenting: Before & After the Internet”. Briann said that she can relate to this post and I can understand why. In her comment Briann wrote: “Oh my gosh I am so glad you linked up! Love, love, love this post! I am still smiling after this one. I have often wondered how my mother did it without the internet.”
8. Eric or is also known as Stomperdad in the blogging world from All In a Dad’s Work with Life Before/After Kids. It is refreshing to hear a view point from a male/ Dad’s prospective, plus it was a very funny creative light hearted post. So Good! Log on his blog and you’ll see what I mean.
9. Briann from Bumbi’s Mom, has chosen “There’s too Much Swearing on this Blog” by Sarah, Admissions Of A Working Mother. In Briann’s own words… “Because it was funny and captured a little bit of what I and many other bloggers must decide- are we writing for ourselves or for others. I love the blogger’s honesty and healthy relationship with their craft. I love a good laugh so those posts always resonate with me.”
10. Emma, Island living 365 with “What being a Stay at home Mum means to me”. I love her writing style. It takes my breath away. I can feel and breath every words she type. It is like looking myself in the mirror. I respect all mums choices but Emma has conveyed it so well for me. Please do check out her blog.
11. Sarah from The Real Lara Shoe has chosen “5 Tips for how to teach kids about stranger awareness” from . In Sarah’s own words: “This post was a great reminder about how important it is to speak to your children about keeping safe with people they know as well as people they don’t. Renata gives us some great tips that may just keep our children safe.”
12. Min, Single Mum Speaks, with “Raising a Feminist Boy”. This piece is so well written. When the future generation looks bleak, and you can’t help but look at your little ones and wanting to protect them from this cruel world we live it. This is not about raising them to be the stereotype of pink vs blue. It is much more than that – it is about having mannerism and raising the future generation to be a kinder generation. I can associate with this and fully understand where she is coming from as I am too trying to raise my son as a Feminist Boy.
13. Sarah from Admissions Of A Working Mother has chosen You The Daddy with A MAN’S GUIDE TO BABY GROWTH DURING PREGNANCY. In Sarah’s own words… “Its just original and entertaining! Its also pretty clever!”
14. Gemma, Colley’s Wobbles with You’re the love of my life. This is piece is such a great tribute to her love ones. Beautifully written and everything is so tight-knit neatly together. Her story is so wonderful. I would love to have this happiness in my life with my children and their children too. Please do go on and read her post.
15. Briann from Bumbi’s Mom has chosen Eric or is also known as Stomperdad in the blogging world from All In a Dad’s Work with When the Stars Align. In Briann’s own words… “I think it’s a great reminder of how some of the simplest moments are also the most magical.”
16. [Sh]annon & H[enry] from Raising Shenrys with I Got A New Way To Wear My Baby. Breast-feeding in public might come across as easy but I do admire her for being open about her struggles and to blog it forward to help others who struggles with it, I think it is something to be prised for. Thank you.
17. Sarah from Kipper & Curtain has chosen Laura from Five Little Doves – The Elephant in the Room. In Sarah’s own words: “It was so beautifully written about the heart wrenching topic of child loss – she really poured her heart and soul into that post.”
18. Meagan from The Mum Project with My Truth: Becoming a Mother. Wow! Superbly written. I feel like I’m on the rush hour train reading from one line to the other. I just can’t stop. And motherhood is exactly how Meagans have described it – like a rush hour train ride – but from time to time when you have a moment to stop – you just observes the beauty of it all. Please do log onto her blog.
19. Sarah from The Real Lara Shoe has chosen Sarah from Admissions Of a Working Mum with “The Mothers Day Interviews : My Friend, Charlotte”. In Sarah’s own words… “I love the way Sarah interviewed a bunch of mothers about their experience, all in honour of Mothers Day. This post is all about her friend Charlotte who recently has her first child. Charlotte shares in a very real way about her difficult birth experience and other challenges. I love what she shares about the kind of mum she thought she’d be. Take a read.”
20. Janine from UNHINGED MUMMY with It’s Rare Disease Day. Janine post help to raise awareness the rare diseases that not only both of her children have but also others with rare diseases.

Thank you also to fellow blogger Faith Mummy who created the video to raise awareness for just some of these rare diseases.

21. Sarah from Admissions Of a Working Mum has chosen Janine from UNHINGED MUMMY with I’m Not Worried That My Son Will Be Diagnosed With Autism. I’m Worried That He Won’t Be. In Sarah’s own words: “I really appreciate bloggers who share their personal experiences about raising their children, posts like that can be really helpful to readers and let them know they are not the only ones. Xxx”
22. The Whimsical Adventures Of A Not So Supermum with A journey of empowerment. What a post! This is about how the past can really shape us today. There are so many great lines here. Such a great read. One of a kind! Please do check her blog out! You won’t regret it.
23. Briann, Bumbi’s Mom has chosen Sarah from Admissions of a Working Mother with Mother’s Happy Fuck It Fri-yay. In Briann’s own words:… “It seems appropriate since we are talking about the #FabFridayPost and along with the theme was a humorous mix of life with a toddler and being a working mom which I can totally relate to and I am sure many others can to.” If you haven’t visit Sarah‘s blog yet please do go on.
24. Clairel, Reading With Toby with “The birth of an independent reader“. First of all: “Well done Toby!” Toby is Clairel’s son, who was caught doing leisure reading on his own accord for the first time. I can relate with the painstaking reading homework as I am also at the same stage with Ethan. So it was something rather magical to hear that Toby’s reading practice has taken off beautifully.
And that is it! I have to say this community rocks!
