It’s been a long time since I shared my favorite posts of the week here. I’ve tried to share on Facebook when I remember, but thanks to tricky algorithms and the mystery that is social media, many of you don’t get to see those posts. Since I personally value weekly roundups like this myself (because really, ain’t nobody got TIME to read ALL THE THINGS on the internet, and sometimes I just want someone to tell me what to read), I thought I’d get back to it here on my own blog.
Annalyn is currently lounging in our $17 baby pool in the front yard, yelling every 90 seconds or so, “Mommy! Mom! MOM! Are you almost done? When are you coming out here? Moooooom!” So I’m going to keep this short and sweet and get straight to the links. Ready?
- Fathers Are Not Idiots (We Are THAT Family) – Amen and amen.
- 37 Easy Ways to Ruin Your Toddler’s Life Every Day (Rachael Boley/For Every Mom) – This was just the refresher I needed as Adrienne is showing distinct signs of this delightful phase!
- The Perfect Summer Chocolate Milkshake (The Mom Creative) – a) This made me hungry, and b) I now want to freeze milk and make All The Shakes.
- Learning to Love Travel with Your Husband (Mom Advice) – This is one I wrote, and I’m hoping you’ll tell me I’m not the only one…
Lastly, my friend Kayse Pratt is starting an online devotional/book club/Bible study sort of thing next week on the 24th. If I know Kayse, it will be no pressure and super encouraging. After all, she said in her post about this project: “From blog posts to books, I’m just weary of all the things everyone is telling me I “should” be doing to be a better wife or mom or me, for goodness sake.” You and me both, friend. Details here.
Happy weekend, friends! May your days include cool drinks and loud laughter and absolutely no mosquitoes.
