We start off the week in New Zealand with Karyn Van Der Zwet of Kloppenmum. (Yay — she’s back!) Karyn talks about attachment parenting and discusses the direction in which societal roles are changing for mothers. A very interesting read!
On Tuesday, we head south of the border to hear from Eva Fannon of Washington, USA. She tells us about a 24 hour trip to New York — it must have been nice to have some alone time!
Then, board a long haul flight with us to East Timor on Wednesday! Shaula Bellour is our mom of twins who has told us before that she has to look out for things like crocodiles in everyday life!
Thursday, we’re in Canada! Here, Robin of “Farewell, Stranger” is our mom who writes inspiring stories about her experiences with Post Partum Depression. Did you know she was asked to speak at a blogging conference in 2012? Check out her blog for more upcoming details!
This week in interviews we have new writer, Salma, in Canada and Maggie Ellison in South Carolina, USA. Come read more about our World Moms Blog Writers!
