This week for the Fresh Five, I thought I’d try and introduce some of the new UK parent blogs that have joined the Tots100 in the past month.
Finding a great new blog is a bit like meeting a new friend, isn’t it? Especially when you find a post that really resonates. And what could be more festive than going and saying hello to a new blogger and helping them feel a part of our community?
First up, there’s Happiness in Learning, a fantastic blog that is intelligent and thoughtful – this post about the wisdom of paying parents to help with their kids’ homework is a great read. What do you think?
Then there’s this moving post on pregnancy after secondary infertility from Is a Bell Necessary – made all the more moving by the fears that the author has that she is already losing her baby (this is a tough post to read, so if miscarriage and loss is a trigger for you, please bear this in mind).
Taming Twins has some wonderful photos of the Christmas markets in Birmingham that are well worth a browse, and we guarantee they’ll have even the grinchiest of you in the festive spirit before you finish reading.
The London Mum has also been at a Christmas market – this time in South Bank – and took her new camera along for the ride. The results really are quite spectacular.
Well now – to be fair – is the bit where I’m going to cheat. Because I’m going to share a blog that (gasp) isn’t part of Tots100. It’s not even British.
Bear with me, though.
THIS is the greatest thing you will see all week.

Go now. You won’t be sorry. *makes shooing motion with hands*
(That last post was found via a new Tots100 blog – the Mum Diaries – thanks so much for the recommendation)
