Monday Parenting Pin It Party

Monday’s Parenting Pin It Party #97

So, in a monumental case of crossed wires and confusion on my part, my first ever week of hosting Monday’s Parenting Pin It Party managed to go by completely unnoticed by me, and I’m posting today instead of yesterday. Shhh…I’m a newbie so you have to let me off! Last week’s linky, hosted by Carolin at Mummy Alarm, had some amazing posts added and I really struggled to choose just two that I loved.

The first one to catch my eye was this recipe for banana and peanut butter flapjacks by Mummy Mishaps. Anything banana and peanut flavour goes down a treat in our house and Husband is famous for making a banana and peanut butter milkshake, so this one had to be chosen.

My next fave was this post by Rainy Day Mum about empowering our daughters and teaching them key life skills. I’ve always been the sort of person to do things for myself, choosing to test my own skills rather than deferring to someone else and we try to teach our girls to be equally as resourceful, so this post really made my heart sing.

Monday Parenting Pin It Party #95

I’m highly honored to tell you all that I’ve been accepted as one of the new hosts of the Monday Parenting Pin It Party with several of my favourite bloggers who are all absolute geniuses when it comes to Pinterest! I, on the other hand, am a bit of a novice and need to make a lot more effort when it comes to using Pinterest to its fullest potential, so I thought I’d throw myself in at the deep end and start here.

This week’s host is Aly from Bug, Bird and Be, someone whose recipes I salivate over on a regular basis and never fail to be in awe for for her dedication to foraging and nature. In case you’re new to the Parenting Pin It Party, the rules are simple:

1. Link up one, or more, of your own parenting posts. You can link either the post itself or a pinterest pin, whichever you prefer.

Each entry will be pinned to the Monday Parenting Pin-It Party board on Pinterest.

2. Follow the Monday Parenting Pin-It Party board on pinterest, featured below.  It would also be great if you followed the hosts, this is me: Mum’s the Word
3.  Try and visit at least two other entries and pin them.  Let them know you have been and hopefully they will return and pin yours too.
