Check out O My Family - a blog by AllisonO that chronicles life at home with a babe. The first steps, the crazy kitchen clean out (check out her super helpful organization week posts), the family photos and video posts. This is a wonderful “mom blog” that will surely brighten your day.
Brandy is the fashion-industry blogger behind Baby Blackbird, a blog devoted to kids fashion, handmade toys and clothing, and family life. The mini street style posts are and adorable collection of reader submitted photos of their young fashionistas, but my favorite might be the Mini Celebrity posts where Brandy breaks down celebrity style into a kid-appropriate approximation. Happy Dressing!

White Lotus Cooks
Months ago, a friend treated me to homemade egg rolls. I haven’t stopped thinking about them since. Searching for a egg roll recipe (and the newfound knowledge that what I really wanted was a Spring Roll) led me to White Lotus Cooks, a delicious blog full of asian food, sweet treats, party ideas and family tid-bits.
If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.
