Designed to be a mum

So today Five minute Friday is on again and I'm going to make another attempt to write for five minutes about a subject without editing.

This week it's about

Motherhood should come with....

Go ...

A revelation that every woman is designed to become a mother. So even if we struggle or feel overwhelmed at times, we can rest in the assurance that God has created us with the ability to be the best mother that we can be for our children.
Every woman is created with just the right tools and ingredients that she needs in her job as a mum.
God makes no mistake and He knows that we are more than able to do our job right.
All we need to do is reach within us and we will find what we need : an extra portion of love, patience, flexiblity, strength, creativity and a sense of humour.
All of those things will get us through and we will find that little by little we have turned into the mother that He has planned (and designed) that we should be.

I did it. LOL But... by the grace of God....

Now it's your turn .

Go to the blog from The Gypsy mama to join in and link back to her blog as I've done.

Good luck !

Love ,

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
