Blog Love: Caitlin, etc., A Good Enough Mother, But Alas, I Digress, And The Simple Hive

blog-love-1 (1)

For Blog Love this time around, I wanted to hear from you and tell me about a site you have. Thank you Caitlin, Alison, and Sherry for sharing your blogs. I always love discovering new ones and sharing them with others. If you want some blog love, please don’t hesitate to let me know by emailing me at elle.mommyhood@gmail.com. Let me know the name of your blog and the link, a brief description, and if desired, links to some of your favorite posts that you’ve written. xoxo

Caitlin, etc.: I write about life, anxiety, and my many adventures with my husband, baby daughter and dog. I also touch on awkwardness, fear of social interaction, and the hobbies I somehow fit into life with a baby.

A Good Enough Mother: This is my mom blog, where I write about everything having to do with the screaming little demon that completely upended my life nigh on 8 months ago. I tend to focus on the harder stuff–postpartum depression, anxiety, terror, colic–but I try to touch on the happy, ooey gooey things sometimes too.

But Alas, I Digress:  I want more people to comment so I can go check out their blogs too! I talk about sewing and craft projects, recipes, and general life. It’s often a little sparse but I try to post at least every month.

The Simple Hive: I share ways in which we deal with homeschooling, multiple food allergies, an insane DIY addiction and the goal of living well, all without losing our minds. Sherry also has an Etsy shop: Simple Hive.

Blog Love: Katkinslee, Life, Motherhood, And The Pursuit Of Happiness, And The Places You Will Go

blog-love (1)

I’m still stuck with some plague from hell. I finally went to the doctor last week and found I have a raging sinus infection on top of a cold so I was prescribed antibiotics. But, I had a nasty reaction to them and was prescribed something different a few days ago. Blech. I am so over feeling like this. The hummingbird hasn’t been feeling very good… again. It seems like we keep passing this cold back and forth.

I never knew just how germy Kindergarten was until the little bird started school last month. I thought we were out of the woods now that she wasn’t in preschool anymore. Ha!

I wrote a little poem on my blog Facebook page about having a cold while having kids to care for. Ready? Ready!

Kill me. Kill me. Omfg, kill me now!

Just fucking kill me.

*bows*

I also decided to go back to school. Eeeek! My night classes started a few weeks ago. I’ve only been to 2 of the classes because of this crappy, crappy cold and sinus yuckiness. Here that? It’s me hyperventilating and panicking over all the studying and homework I need to catch up with. *deep breath* I’ll write more about that later.

In the mean time, here’s blog love for some lovely ladies.

Vegan Mama: I love this blog and nope, you don’t have to be vegan to enjoy it. There are plenty of recipes which I love since I’m lactose intolerant as well as plenty of DIY posts. 3 Ingredient Chocolate Truffles; so easy and delicious, DIY Customizable Healing Salves; cold season is coming up and these are great natural remedies, Raspberry Limeade (or Lemonade); have I told you how obsessed I am with limeade anything? This is so very good., Homemade Bubble Mix: the hummingbird has a bubble machine and these bubbles are awesome and cheaper than store bought.

Three Boys And A Mom: This is such a well written blog about a single mom with 3 boys. Beauty In The Broken; dealing with divorce, How A Mom Enjoys Her Coffee In 97 Steps; so funny and true, You Know You Belong To Boys When; tripping on legos, farts, and wrestling.
