Leibster Blog Award...

Friday, 21 October 2011 3 comments
How exciting... my very first (and potentially only!) award. I’ve had a tough week this week, I’m over 8 months pregnant and Isaac has chicken pox, so instead of wishing the new baby would come out now, I’m back to praying it stays in. A newborn with chicken pox would not be good. Anyway, after a week of solitary confinement I was very pleased to learn I had been passed on the Liebster Blog Award from Musings of a Stressy Mummy. I’m actually a little disappointed because Stressy Mummy is one of my favourite Blogs and really I’d like to nominate her back, (in fact I think her “What do you call your lady bits?” post may have dampened my own ‘lady bits’ a little!), but if I did that we may be stuck in an endless nomination loop which could potential lead to the end of the world... or maybe not.

The Britmums Blog Prompt on 'My 5 Favourite Blogs..." for this week fits in nicely here too, because I love to share, and as well as just list you my fave new blogs, I thought I'd tell you a bit about why I like them at the same time. Check me out, I MUST be on top of things, killing two birds with one stone... multi-tasking... ahhh now if I can just rememeber where I left the baby...
So, it appears the Liebster Blog award is for Blogs with under 200 members (I would say relatively new blogs but for me to get 200 followers seems like an impossible task potentially taking many years!) anyway, the rules are as follows:

1.       Thank my Liebster Blog Award presenter (s) on my blog
2.        Link back to the blogger (s) who awarded you
3.       Copy & Paste the award to your blog
4.       Nominate 5 blogs to receive the award
5.       Let them know of their nomination by leaving a comment on their blog

So, without further ado, and in no particular order my favourite newish 5 blogs to date are:
These posts make me smile and are ones I can really relate to (we have a daddy countdown too), I especially enjoyed reading 'Lance comes out of the closet’ as I personally found it very difficult to sleep in the same room as my baby but felt like a terrible mother for not seeing out those 6 months the midwives suggested might save Isaacs life. I think actually getting some sleep might have saved my life so hey ho you live and learn.

2.     Mamma Mummy Mum
I love this blog because it has lots of short but sweet treats about day to day family life. I like to keep a close eye on it because as a mum to three cheeky girls Chantelle has a wealth of experience on the day to day things which are likely to completely flummox me when I experience them.

I met this blog via Love New Blogs weekly showcase and enjoyed reading her personal views on the never ending debate about breastfeeding. I struggled a lot with coming to terms with bottle feeding and it’s nice to hear that I wasn’t the only one. As a soon to be new mum again I can already feel the pressure building on me to ‘perform’ this time round.

4.     Amsterdamummy
A new blog like mine that I think I’m going to be following closely as I’ve been finding recently the more time I spend home alone as a mummy, the more I worry about things like ‘making friends’ and ‘fitting in’. I’m relatively new to the area I live in but I eventually I made a lovely group of mummy friends thanks to Isaac being born. One year on and they’re all heading off back to work... whereas I’m stuck at home about to go through the whole thing again...

5.     The Bling Buoy
This is another blog I only just spotted and the first post I read was all about her missing cat (I don’t want to spoil it for you but in case you’re of a delicate disposition I can tell you the cat was found safe and well!). I have two cats that mostly live outside; I got them to keep mice out the house. Sadly, the cats have other ideas and spend most of their time bring mice into the house. They also bring rabbits in which is no mean feat as the rabbits are about the same size as them and the cats have to get in the house by jumping through a small window. I wouldn’t be without them though and they’ve been very good at helping me show Isaac how to ‘be geennttlleee’ in preparation for the arrival of his little brother (it’s all good as long as Isaac doesn’t catch them napping, because then for some reason he either wants to stamp on them or pick them up by their botty holes... neither of which I think his new brother would appreciate).
So, thats it, I hope you enjoy having a peek at these other family blogs as much as I do...

    Thank you for the lovely comments! And might I say well done for being so efficient!! Let's hope next week is a better one! x

    Ooh, thank you!

    Hope your son is better soon. My son got chicken pox the night before his second birthday, when my daughter was nearly a week old! Luckily she didn't get it.

    All the best for the next few months! x
