I have to say that around Fab we keep strange working hours! It’s not entirely odd to send an email at 3am and receive a response quickly from one of our feeding Mama’s that are up and about. Taking a note from my sister, who found her eReader indispensable, I thought it was time to share some of the best and the brightest of Mommy Reading (in my humble opinion!) Whether you’re planning a pregnancy, whiling away hours of difficult pregnancy-sleeping in this heat, or nursing your wee one- these blogs will prove an interesting distraction!
Doodlemum – 38 year old Angie Stevens takes a look at the lighter side with delightful line-drawings and masterful shading. Imagine a typical day in your life drawn artfully for you to enjoy. I think I love this blog as much as my Mom enjoyed For Better or For Worse.
Pregnant Chicken – Toronto Mom Amy Morrison runs this blog- it’s equal parts helpful info (see Hospital Bags – What to Pack) and hilarious (check out Pregnant on St. Paddy’s Day?). Her wry sense of humour cracks me up, but do make sure you mind the swearing!
Apartment Therapy – Family Section Having recently purchased my first home with the Handsome Husband, I have to say that this website has become my lifeblood. Well, this website and Pinterest as I need somewhere to keep track of all that I love on Apartment Therapy! Check out the family section for great ideas on décor, party planning and photography projects to keep track of small to big moments!
Babble – This has got to be the number-one “Read it on my iPad whilst I nurse at 3am” website. Need an answer to the ultimate “Am I a normal parent if I ….” or want to read some celebrity gossip that doesn’t include a healthy dose of who’s spilling out of what club at what hour? This is the spot. They cover recipes, hot topics, troubleshooting and more. Looking for a great article to start on? How about “I want to eat your baby! Why do women say that?” by Joe Donatelli
And finally, Pinterest – We here at Fab have started our own Pinterest! Staff have been obsessively pinning on their own personal sites, so we thought why not share awesome ideas, great products and adorable Littles with our Fab Friends?? We’re always looking for new pins, so add us and we’ll scope out your great taste!
