Wandering Wednesday #40

Wandering WednesdayWelcome to another Great Wandering Wednesday!

Thank you so much for stopping by for another great Wandering Wednesday link up party! This last week has been full of emotion for me.


Two weeks ago I decided that Shiree and I were going to take on another big project! We were so excited to release a new website specifically for moms from pregnancy to toddlers. We had all the balls in motion to release it and then slowly but surely pieces started crumbling… Things weren’t working out how we thought they would. We started questioning how we were going to do it all… and then we realized that we had everything we wanted right in front of us, here at Confessions of Parenting! But it was time to make some changes… And with those changes comes taking a break from Wandering Wednesday.

But, we have some great things happening here we want to share with you!

  1. We are starting a contributor section to our blog! Yes, we want all of you! We love you and love everything you have shared with us at the linkups! So we want to keep sharing your great advice with our readers! So we invite you to take a peek at our “Write For Us Section” and see if we will be a good fit for one another!
  2. If you contribute 3 times you will be added to our Contributor Page that will have your picture, a small bio, and a link back to your site!

Thank you!

I want to personally thank each one of you! 10 months ago Confessions of Parenting was born! Shortly after that, I met most of you at our very first link up party! My we have grown! Each and every one of you has helped me in my blogging journey! You have offered me support, encouragement, a thoughtful comment, a smile, and a laugh! Week after week we have met here and encouraged one another and laughed!! And I love each one of you for this! I have met some great bloggers that I now call my friends! So thank you for everything my friends I can’t wait for our blogging journeys to continue to grow together!

As for Wandering Wednesday, we are stepping back from it for a bit. Lori is taking some time off as well to slow down and focus on some other things she has going on, including one of her daughter’s going to serve a mission, another having a baby, and another coming home from college! We will let you know as soon as we are ready to party at Wandering Wednesday again! We love you all!


So with all that being said, we share our favorites with you and the most clicks from last week! Have an amazing summer! We love you!


Michele’s Favorite Pick!

This week, I really loved German for Kids: Krabbeltiere Suche! – Minibeast Hunt! by Kids, Cuddles, and Muddy Puddles. My kids have been really interested in learning different languages this week, so we changed it up a bit and did Spanish because my husband is fluent in that. But my kids LOVED it! We used the same concept of the fun scavenger hunt and I have heard my daughter teaching her friends Spanish terms, so it totally works!

Lori’s Favorite Pick!

 For those who know me – my word for the year has been joy.  So it isn’t any surprise my favorite this week might have something to do with my focus. Rhonda from Small Things Over Time shared some a great tip for Being Happier in Just Minutes a Day. I conducted a very similar test to the gratitude theory – and found it made a huge difference in my perspective and overall happiness.  Wondering how she did it? Check out her post here.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re taking a break but I do understand. I’m sure it was time consuming for you ladies. I am also so grateful to you for hosting this link up party. As a new blogger, Wandering Wednesday was the first link up party I participated in and you all made me feel like a rock star! 😂 I’ll forever remember and appreciate you for that. 💕 Thanks for the opportunity to share that you provided for us.

    Aww, mixed feelings for you-all for sure, but honestly, having a summer hiatus is maybe not such a bad thing anyway? – I know I’m already struggling to keep up with my regular scheduled things now that school is out, and I know you-all will have your hands full as well! 🙂 Will look forward to (just a suggestion) WW returning when the kiddos are all back in school 🙂 <3 (and do keep this list posted on the new site as well! 🙂 )
