#MyFiveThings series


What’s that you say? A new guest post series?! Yes it’s true. I just love a guest post series, and so welcome to the latest one on the blog co-hosted with the lovely Mim from MamaMim entitled #MyFiveThings.

What is this #MyFiveThings all about, we hear you utter? Over the coming weeks, Mim and I will be taking turns to feature some of our fave bloggers taking the floor on the theme of five things they want to share about parenting – this can be anything from practical advice, humour, revelations, learnings, rants, utter mindless drivel….it’s really up to you!

This series will be hopping between our blogs fortnightly and submissions are open NOW!

If you’d like to share your five things, we’d love to hear from you. You can either email myself on motherhoodtherealdeal AT gmail DOT com or Mim on mamamimblog AT gmail DOT com. We’d love to hear what you’ve got up your sleeves for this, and to have you onboard!
