Do you read mommy blogs? I am really in desperate need of a few good ones. This is where my personal life and interests reside these days....day-dreaming about my little girl and scheming up ways to make her childhood magical and memorable and full of life for our family.
I have a hard time finding mommy blogs that I can relate to. It's much like wedding blogs...you want to "click" with someone's ideas of childhood and motherhood and balance. I will admit, I have not done much searching on my own for what I seek....because....well....I haven't really put time into it.
Much like finding those wedding blogs of perfection and glamor that were just not me, I keep finding mommy blogs that just seem like too much. I end up stressing out. I'd have to say that most of this stress is just self-induced guilt that I conjure up looking at blogs written by stay at home mommy's whom I admire/envy, and yet I cannot relate. (well...obviously on some level I relate...because we are all mothers who adore our children and would go to the ends of the Earth for their well-being...yet, I am mostly interested in joining a community of mother's who work outside of the home, like me.)
I need ideas...inspiration...advice...and balance in this "Clara's-mama" role of mine :-)
I have found a couple that I like...and read regularly...but I want more. I tend to gravitate towards DesignMom, and CUP OF JO (she does Motherhood Mondays that are really good.)
Have any recommendations?
