Mim Loves Blogs – The Determined Housewife!

Mim Loves Blogs – The Determined Housewife

Happy Monday everyone and happy 33 weeks pregnant to me :)  I’m feeling huge and uncomfortable but oh-so-excited that I get to meet my new baby soon!  Well, you know, not too soon – but not long to go!

In the past week I’ve taken part in a record number (for me) of Linkys – I’ve been spending a LOT of time reading some wonderful and inspiring blogs and found it very difficult to pick just one blog for this week’s Mim Loves Blogs.

As the birth of baby #2 draws nearer, I’ve been reflecting a lot on the past 2 years – my first 2 years as a mother.

I’ve been thinking about the kind of parent I thought I would be and the different parents I’ve met since becoming one myself – some of the most fantastic mums and dads who I hope will be in my life forever.  Some, I’m happy to steer clear of!

One post that caught my attention the most really fitted in with this theme and was by The Determined Housewife.

An Australian based SAHM and ex-teacher with 2 little girls aged 1 and 3, she had a really clear idea of the mother she wanted to be but in her recent post, “I am not the Perfect Mum, but I’m doing perfectly fine”, the reality is uncovered!

I think this is so true for so many of the parents I know and I loved reading it – always have a clean house?  No TV?  I remember having the same plans myself!

    I think every person before becoming a parent has a clear idea of the parent they want to be. Idealistically. Then the reality sets in. You are exhausted. And you do what you need to to cope with this amazing but scary new experience. Hugs Mrs H xxxx PS I’m off to read Determined Housewife’s post now.

      That’s so true – sometimes it’s just about survival :) :)

    haha I love this. I had all sorts of plans, right up until S was born! Now I’m altogether more laid back about parenting!
    I need you to tell me what is on the screen in the photo at the top… it’s driving me batty!
    Thanks for linking up with the #WeekendBlogHop!

      It’s so funny how things change when they become real! You know I have no idea what that pic is but it’s annoying me too now! :)
