Follow Friday #48

I’ve been catching up on the 2,000+ blog posts I’ve bookmarked, so there are some slightly older links here this week. They’re all goodies though, so make yourself comfortable and have a gander.

A woman has dared to suggest that working non-mothers should be entitled to me-ternity leave. I could punch her in the face! Someone suggested something similar to me when I returned to work and inspired me to write this post

Guess what? Studies have proven that there is no benefit to smacking your child. I’m really not for smacking at all. I can remember my aunt saying something stupid about bringing it back when I was pregnant and I thought it was ridiculous. I have no plans to discipline my child that way and if someone happens to babysit and think it’s appropriate, they won’t be seeing Jenson again!

As bloggers, we spend so much of our lives documenting everything that sometimes we forget to just take a step back and enjoy it. Sophie Rosie asked if we spend too much of our lives behind a lens and it really got me thinking, especially about how much time I spend taking photos and videos of Jenson rather than just being in the moment

Sophie has some great book recommendations. I need to bump Me Before You up me TBR pile and add The Year of Yes to my Amazon wish list

Everyone is talking about the Calm book and the more I read about it the more I need it in my life
