Monday Mentions 2

8 Aug

I came across this blog post last week and I knew I had to share it on my new Monday Mentions.

I have been following Erin for a while now and we mostly have conversation during Wednesday night #commenthour on Twitter. (If you have not attended commenthour yet, you must. Great way to get some blog lovin)

The title of her blog is A Book for my Daughter. Her resume reads: “wife for 12 years, mother for 11, editor for 10, digital product manager for 1, and now blogger for 4 months. A few years ago, my then eight-year-old daughter told me that she wished I could write down all the things I told her so that she wouldn’t forget them when she got older.”   What a wonderful idea.

I am not a mother yet, but when I read Erin’s post it made me really think about what kind of mom I will be or hope to be. When you have a moment please stop by and ready, Disappointment, A lesson learnedA wonderful story of how she handled her daughters first major heartbreak.

My second blog for the day is Three P’s in a Pod.

Tara’s bio: “I am lucky enough to be a stay at home mom and love it!  I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology and worked as a case manager for child services for about two and a half years before becoming a stay at home mom.

She has started a segment called “Say Hi Sunday Blog Hop” This week there were 129 blogs that entered in the Sunday blog hop. This is a great place to meet new bloggers, share some comments, and get more love on your blog as well!

Swing by and check out all the wonderful stories and pick up her adorable button!

    Happy Saturday Sharefest!! Whew – SITS had me scared there for a minute ’cause it’s really only Wednesday. But, who cares how we find each other, right? Great post reminder to every mom (and maybe aunts . . . hmmm there’s an idea for my nieces). Written diaries/books and printed photos are the only way to go ~ personally I don’t trust electronics (did you have problems with the most recent solar flare?). Have a great day/weekend ; )))
