It’s been a busy old week in blogosphere, despite it still being Easter holidays and everyone being ankle deep in children asking “what-are-we-going-to-doooooo” (or is that just mine?). But we made it to Friday, and that means it’s time for the Tots100 Ten at Ten. Our guest poster this week is Mrs M from At Home With Mrs M (where she has a most awesome sauce Bucket List – have you seen it?) and she’s chosen her ten favourite blog posts from the last seven days.

It was a tough call selecting only ten blog posts as I’ve seen some great writing and some fabulous Easter-themed posts this week. I’ve tried to pick ten very different posts so that there’s something for everybody, so go get a cup of tea and perhaps some leftover Easter egg and get comfortable!
The Ramblings of a Formerly Rock’n’Roll Mum is a relatively new blog that I stumbled across this week. Her post about a few of her favourite things made me smile as we appear to have absolutely everything in common but it was the blogpost about her quirky son that really caught my eye.
I’m a big fan of family traditions and try to create ones that my family and I will be able to continue for a long time. This week Chez Mummy featured a guest post from Motherhood Journeys who shares her take on Easter traditions.
Still on the subject of Easter, I’m moving on to a big question – Is Easter too commercial? Has it all got too much? Those are the questions being posed by Mum In The Madhouse this week. Having seen what my children received this week, I would have to say yes!
As you will know from my blog, I love to cook but my presentation skills leave a little to be desired. I was very impressed with Susan K Mann’s attempt at a gingerbread house. Very creative and definitely good enough to eat!
BUSTED! Ever caught your children red-handed? Or maybe they’ve incriminated themselves! This video from Mummys Little Monkey made me smile lots.
Anyone else fed up of hearing the term “too posh to push” being bandied around by the media? SAHM and Loving It is and talks about her elective c-sections and why she decided to do it her way.
My Funny Mummy’s experience of trying to get water to heat up her baby food reminded me of the many times I faced similar situations with my own two children. I’m sure we’ve all been there, right?
I’ll be trying out this great fun activity that I spotted on Red Ted Art’s blog, all you need is an old pair of tights, some soil and a bit of grass seed and you’re away! I’ll be trying this with my children at the weekend.
I have no first-hand experience of autism so I can’t begin to imagine what it’s like for a parent to deal with day in, day out without much respite. Soft Thistle’s post tells us why autism sucks and what is helping her through the hard days.
And finally, for all the fashion-conscious amongst us, have you noticed all the pretty coloured denim in the shops at the moment? Are coloured jeans for everyone? Pret-A-Mummy poses a question I’ve been asking myself recently - whether coloured jeans would make her look fat!
