Something for the weekend: Being mum, being dad

The core premise of this series is to highlight the very best of both mum and dad blogs, and the contrast of perspectives available from both sides of the fence.

That’s particularly the case this week, as I’ve selected posts that provide alternative perspectives on what it’s like to be both a mother and a father. Enjoy!

3 Children and It

Another week, another Berkshire-based mum blogger. Suzanne’s was one of the first parenting blogs I ever followed. Her three children are older than ours and her posts are always full of honest insights into what I can expect from our kids in the years to come.

The ever-changing face of motherhood provides 25 reflections on being the mother of a teenager, many of which are universal to parents of children of any age – whether mothers or fathers. I’ve bookmarked the post for further reference and I’m sure I’ll soon be ticking off the last few items we haven’t yet reached.

Fatherhood Stories

Joe’s reflections on fatherhood are thoughtful and funny in equal measure, and his post A father of girls and that’s fine by me really struck a chord with me as he talks about the joy of having daughters and interacting with them.

It doesn’t matter whether we’re mothers or fathers, or whether we have sons or daughters. Love is blind when it comes to the respective genders of a parent and a child, and dads enjoy playing with their daughters as much as with their sons.

If you have any suggestions for great posts by other bloggers you’ve read this week, feel free to add them in the comments below.
