Wandering Wednesday #26

Wandering-Wednesday-Link-up6 months ago we started Wandering Wednesday here at Confessions of Parenting, and in those 6 months we have grown so much and will hopefully, (Fingers crossed) will continue to grow and get better and better for all of you! With that being said it does take a lot of work the bigger we get, so I decided to ask one of my very good blogging friends, who you have all met to start Co-hosting Wandering Wednesday with me! Wanna know who it is? It’s Lori, from Choosing Wisdom! who you all met in February! Lori and I met back when these link ups started and have become good friends over the past 6 months! This is just proof that joining link ups not only expose you to new readers, but you can find great new friends in the process!

Confessions of Parenting and Choosing Wisdom have decided to team up in organizing our weekly linkup. We are excited with all this entails. You will be able to access the linkup through either of our blogs and still enjoy the same great content each week!

  • We will still pin ALL posts to our  Wandering Wednesday Board on Pinterest! Be sure to follow the board and REPIN your FAVORITE Posts from this week to your boards!
  • Featured posts will be included in a SPECIAL GRAPHIC with their pins advertising Wandering Wednesday for even more exposure!
  • We will each choose our favorite post and you all will vote for the best one in the comments below! The three posts with the most clicks will also get an honorable mention.

We are so excited to share “Our Favorite Picks” with you this week!

Michele’s Favorite Pick!

This week I loved CCmommyandme because it had all of the much-needed reminders that I needed this week in her post To the Mom Who Wants to Do It All.  Moms always have an endless to-do list, and a lot of the time we have expectations of ourselves set way too high! Don’t beat yourself up because your house is a mess.  Take some time to relax and take a step back and just enjoy motherhood.  Because, let’s face it, being a mom is super hard!


 Lori’s Favorite!

I loved the review Ashley at Navigating the Years wrote up on Smart Money, Smart Kids by Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze.

I’ve spent some time contemplating the entitlement issues we are often reinforcing with our children. As a family, we tried to be conscious about teaching responsibility and work ethics, but often fell short.  I love how Ashley broke down each of the fundamental principles of this book into digestible portions and shared her experience with applying it to their family. Teaching our children to be wise with money is about so much more than just money.  It instills important values and ethics to carry over into other parts of their character.


The Viewers Favorite!

The favorite this week by the viewers was 15 Toddler Sandwich Ideas from Magical Mama.

    Congrats on co-hosting with Lori! What a great combination! 🙂 I love it!

    My vote this week is for Conversations with Yourself from One Blog One Day at a Time. I just loved her perspective and advice on negative self-talk. So helpful for just about everybody, I think! 🙂
