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.

Group blog.

I’d like to try a blog with several contributors (again). Not really sure about the direction yet or a name. Suggestions are very welcome.

If you’d be interested in contributing (once a week, perhaps, even once a month) whether you have a blog or just like writing, photography, cooking, crafting, painting and illustration, music, creative writing and short stories, fashion, book reviews, movie reviews, etc.

Also, let me know what you’d be interested in writing about. It can be anything and everything. It will be a free gig. Moms and dads are welcome as well as those who aren’t parents. The approach to the site will be laid back and collaborative.

The last time I attempted one… it ummm, honestly was a disaster and mistakes were made. Too many cooks in the kitchen, so to speak. I want this to be fun and a great experience for all.

All involved would have a say — though I learned the hard way that there does needs to be someone who takes everyone’s opinion at heart and makes the ultimate decision.

You would be in control of your content. I do not censor or edit anyone as it’s, I feel, not my right.

We will absolutely be in this together. Even if you’ve never blogged, if you want to get your feelings out in the open, this will be the place. We can also set it up for you to be anonymous… if that makes you more comfortable.

Email me with the subject title ‘group blog’ at elle.mommyhood@gmail.com

Yes, Mommie Dearest.

Hi, remember me?

I’ve been sick the past couple weeks and the rest of the house came down with this plague. We’re finally feeling better. Yay! I better start writing again or my mom is going to get me. hehe

She sent me this email:

The Anonymous Parent

On January 14, I plan to start a website called The Anonymous Parent. I know there is plenty we would like to say on our own blogs or in our lives but worry about the reaction we may get. That’s exactly what this site is for.

It’s anonymous and confidential and you can write whatever you’d like.

It’s not about judgement but support and understanding.

Whether it’s rants about your spouse, a secret you want to divulge, joyful moments, bad parenting moments, creative writing that has never seen the light of day, or anything else you’d like to reveal about yourself or get off your chest… except you’ll be blissfully anonymous.

I’m not sure how the site will go, rather if there will be any interest, but I hope there will be.

To submit your anonymous stories, email theanonparent@gmail.com.

Happy writing!
