We are in for an exciting week featuring two new international writers, so fasten your seatbelts!
We start off this week in Oslo, Norway on Monday, to hear from first-time World Moms Blogger Ambre French, our French Mom who lives in Scandinavia.
On Tuesday, we fly across the pond to New Jersey to spend time with Veronica Samuels, who is preparing for the arrival of her second child.
On Wednesday, we take off for New Zealand to hear from Karyn Van Der Zwet, Mom of three and former teacher, who is also writing for us for the first time.
And on Thursday, we’re back in the United States to connect with Minnesota Mom Galit Breen, world traveler-turned-devoted-Mom.
Be sure to look out for our Friday question at the end of the week, and chime in with comments of your own!
— World Moms Blog
Our World Moms Blog logo was designed by the creative Erica Joyner Designs in Virginia, USA.
This week we asked our writers,
What book did you last read? Or, what is your favorite book?
Here’s what they had to say!
Karyn Van Der Zwet of New Zealand states:
“The latest book I’ve read is ‘The Book of Fairy Princes’ by Isabel Wyatt, yes it is a children’s book, and I really like it because it is like an old-fashioned fairy tale book, but the boys are the focus not the girls. As a Mum to three boys – this is important in our house.” (more…)
This week we asked our World Moms Blog writers,
“What is your most embarrassing moment in motherhood?”
All we can say is…get ready to laugh (or cringe) with us!
Kyla P’an of Massachusetts, USA admits:
“My four-year old received a thoughtful but somewhat juvenile birthday gift from an elderly neighbor. The next time we bumped into the neighbor, I thanked her profusely for her kindness and told her how much my daughter loved playing with the gift at which point my daughter chimed in,’no I don’t mommy, remember, it was for toddlers so we gave it to Rachel’s sister?’ (oops!)” (more…)
This week we asked our World Moms Blog writers…
“Fess up, moms! Any white lies you want to admit to telling your children?”
The ladies, as usual, did not hold back…
Kirsten Jessiman of Toronto, Canada writes:
“My top three:
– If you keep pouting and the wind changes, your face will stay that way.
– The monsters went away because I punched them in the nose.
– Yes, I also have to go to my room when I say a bad word.” (more…)
"Don't try this at home!"
This week Allison Charleston of New York, USA asks,
“Where does your little one sleep? Do you co-sleep?
When did you transition your child to their own crib or bed?”
Here’s how our World Moms Blog writers answered… (more…)
Yippyy! It’s a brand new year and a brand new writing gig for me. What better way to introduce myself to y’all then to cozy up with you and let you know, nay ANNOUNCE to you, just what kind of a Mom I really am.
Lean in close, friends. Are you comfy? Perhaps with a cocktail in hand? Excellent. Here it is:
Sometimes? I kind of suck at the Mom thing.
Don’t get me wrong. Being a Mom is the most amazingly wonderfully fulfilling role that I have ever had. Bar none. My cup is over-flowing every single nano-second of every single day because I know that yes. Yes, I am indeed, THAT lucky to be THEIR mom. (more…)
