#HappyQuacks Linky Wk5

Welcome to #happyquacks Week 5 and thanks to all those who linked in last week! I found myself really nodding away at some of the posts and giggling at others. Here is my top 3 for the week:

1. Carly aka Mummy wrote a great post about how she encourages her son to speak. S was a “late-ish” speaker although I’d done all the things she mentioned. It just meant that when he actually did start speaking, it all came in very quickly. A literal verbal explosion!

2. Silly Mummy wrote a funny post about how the baby likes to join in on the conversation with the toddler. It had me giggling.

3. Angela from Daysinbed wrote a very interesting post about the developmental science behind the game peek-a-boo. I can truly say I learnt something new.

So on to this week’s linky…

This week I’m linking up with my post about our trip to Legoland last week.

#HappyQuacks Linky Wk 4

I can’t believe we’re already at week 4 of #happyquacks Time is certainly flying. I’ve really enjoyed reading all the posts, so thank you so much to all those who linked up. These 3 in particular really resonated with me last week:

1. The Single Swan’s post about ditching her wedding day to have the day she wanted. It’s about realising what’s happening and choosing happiness. I love all her posts and this one was no exception. Especially the part about feeling liberated.

2. Angela of Days in Bed wrote a great post about how to teach your child about healthy competition. It’s a long read but a good one. With the pressures of modern society to be, look and act a certain way, I think this is a really important lesson to teach our kids.

3. I loved Hectic dad’s post about big families. You wouldn’t be faulted for thinking the cover picture is one of a small town but it is in fact his family. Reading his post made me want to meet them and be in on their little jokes too!

So on to this week’s linky…

This week I’m linking up with an old post about turning 30!

#HappyQuacks Linky Wk 3

Hello happy people…for those of you living in London (or nearby), it was 32 degrees today!!! Now that doesn’t make “heat averse ol’ me” particularly happy but I do know the rest of the capital was just lapping it up!!

Thanks to all those who linked up to #happyquacks last week, I absolutely loved reading all your posts. So in no particular order, these were the 3 that really called out to me this week!

1. One Yummy Mummy’s post about Father’s Day and the beautiful scene of unconditional love she witnessed at a cemetery, filled my heart with joy.

2. Dear Mummy’s blog post about 50 things that make me happy…by a toddler, had me smiling the whole way through. Many on that list make S very happy as well, especially stickers and stealing all the toilet roll!

3. Flustered mom’s post about her son selling Lemonade to raise money for the people of Nepal inspired me. As parents, we strive to instill good values in our children. Her son taking the initiative to reach out to help those in need is a credit to her parenting skills, in my opinion.

So on to this week’s linky…

This week I’ve linked up my post about choosing happiness and questioning why it’s so difficult.

I host this linky with Rod over at Moderndadpages. This linky is open to all and every post you’ve ever written about anything that makes you happy. It could be your kids, your spouse, your family, your holiday, whatever it is that makes you happy.

Each week I’ll pick 3 of my favourite posts and they’ll get a little shout out in the following week’s link up post.

#HappyQuacks Linky Wk 2

Wow, what a week/weekend! I went from being worried that no one would link up (first time linky nerves) to have 21 people link up to #happyquacks Very exciting stuff!

This week I’ve linked up my post about the person who makes me the happiest, my son! Although I’m the mama, he teaches me so much and never ceases to amaze me with his one liners!

My favourite posts from last week were:

1. 30 things that make me happy by Absolutely Prabulous. She’s such a witty blogger, I love reading her posts and this one in particular really resonated with me.

2. I wouldn’t love you sooner by Slacker Mommy. I especially liked this post because I look at my own life and wonder how/why I got to where I am now and I often have such moments of clarity (which are great). It was lovely reading a post by someone who has reached that moment and is thankful for the way things turned out.

3. To my daughter on Graduation Day by Flustered mom. I often look at S (who is only 3) and worry about the day he goes off to university and all the pieces of advice I’d like to give him. I really enjoyed this post and my favourite quote was:

“Here’s to the crazy ones.  The misfits.  The rebels.  The troublemakers.  The round pegs in the square holes.  The ones who see things differently.  They’re not fond of rules.  And they have no respect for the status quo.  You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.  About the only thing you can’t do it ignore them.  Because they change things.  They push the human race forward.  And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius.  Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”  – Apple, Inc. 

So without further ado…
