Welcome to our crazy! Let us celebrate this glorious journey that we call parenthood…and by celebrate I mean lock ourselves in the bathroom, open a bottle of wine together, drown out the whining, tattling and screaming. Let’s share our stories so that we never feel alone or inadequate. The job of parenting is hard… and it’s damn funny.

My favorite post from last week was The Pregnancy Olympics by Four Princesses and the Cheese. So funny and I’ve thought of what would have been my sport, go and have a read.

And without further a-do my top three most viewed posts for this week are *drum roll please*
1st place goes to the always hilarious Kristin at Four Princesses And The Cheese with~
-Trista @ domesticatedmomster.com
Four Princess And The Cheese – You Know you are the Queen of Suburbia When Your life changes over New Couches – I could so relate to this brilliantly written post by Kristin. It was almost as if she was writing about me, my life and my couches. When you really really want a new couch but you’re going to or already have children. When can you get a couch? A perfect ode to the new couch, just don’t spill the wine.
Four Princesses and the Cheese is a parenting blog with a difference. I love the way Kristin doesn’t try to gloss over anything – there’s rants, humour, and a very real sense of the person behind the blog.
-Debbie @ Random Musings Blog- 4 Blogs that I love
Evelyn chose In the Choice Between the Mom-Hangover and Death…I Choose Death Friends by Four Princesses and the Cheese. “I picked this one because it is an honest picture of motherhood. Not hyped for social media, just the truth.”
Kimberly also chose this post. “A hangover itself is awful, but having to parent with one is even worse. Moms, read this post and see yourself in it!”
-Being A Wordsmith Link Party; Evelyn @ Eclectic Evelyn and Kimberly @ Being A Wordmsith
Ginger chose My Toy Shit List from Four Princesses and The Cheese. “This made me laugh out loud. I’m not a mom but I have my niece and nephews all the time and can really relate.”
-Turn It Up Tuesdays Link Party; Ginger @ Does My Sister Have Normal Hair
Evelyn chose A Study of The Abyss That Is The Mom-Purse by Four Princesses and the Cheese. “Love this post! So funny and so true.”
Natasha also chose this post. “I LOVE everything about this post! I also have loads of receipts (along with everything else in my purse) – I even found one last week from 2012! I switch purses every so often, which means I’m just moving stuff from one purse to another – and never clean out the mess. And the crumbs in the edges of my cell phone case – those are disgusting but so my life! Thanks for sharing this awesome post!”
-Being A Wordsmith Link Part; Evelyn @ Eclectic Evelyn and Natasha @ Epic Mommy adventure
My featured post this week is A Study of The Abyss That Is The Mom Purse by Four Princesses and The Cheese who shared her take on the mum bag post children, which typically includes a number of random toys, empty food wrappers and a lovely layer of crumbs coating the bottom of your bag for good measure. Revolting, but unfortunately very true!

This week I loved this post from Kristin at Four Princesses and The Cheese on the things that her family cannot do, it would appear it is very similiar to the things that my boys and my husband can’t do either. Oh and me…yep there is something on the list that I find impossible, but I’ll let you read it to guess which one applies to me!
-Laura @ Life With Baby Kicks
Briann from Bumbi’s mom has chosen “The Impossible… Things My Family Cannot do under ANY circumstances by Kristin McCarthy from Four Princesses and The Cheese. Briann said: It was funny and real and many parents can relate. Please check out her blog.
-Briann @ Bumbi’s Mom
I first read Kristin’s blog Four Princesses & The Cheese when she linked up to my Friday Frolics linky. She had me hooked from the get go.
Kristin is a mum to four girls and lives in the USA. Her blog details the highs and lows of parenting and is absolutely hilarious. I love the way Kirstin tells a story. I find my self nodding and laughing all the way through.
For me a blog with perfect crafts and pristine children is never going to draw me in. I much prefer people who keep it real. Parenting is hard work! And whilst it’s great to talk about the highs, and celebrate our children’s successes and parenting wins, it’s also really important to talk about the tough days, and the craziness of life with small people. I know if I’m having a bad day reading a perfect blog is going to make me feel a lot worse. But reading blogs like Kristin’s makes me feel less alone, and even cheers me up in the process.
Kirstin gives the full picture of parenthood. The good, the bad and the ugly. And it’s pretty near on impossible to read one of her posts and not crack a smile.
These are a few of my favourite posts from Kirstin…
