Postcards from Parenthood Blog Carnival

Step right up ladies and gentleman, boys and girls, to the greatest carnival on the world wide web. OK, so maybe THE greatest is a bit ambitious. But I promise that it will be full of fun, excitement, and inspiration.

A few months ago my dear (pregnant) friend expressed to me that she was feeling some trepidation about the impending arrival of her baby girl. Wanting to assure her that she would rock star her way right through the whole parenting journey, I wrote a post for her that compared parenthood to traveling to Paris.

And now, in honour of that precious little one’s due date, I am opening up the floor to all of you mommy and daddy bloggers. If you were to write a postcard from parenthood what would it say? Would you be writing from New York City? A pub in Dublin? The Serengeti? What advice would you give new parents just embarking on the journey?

Still pregnant? Write a postcard from the tarmac.

Not yet pregnant? Write a post on the postcards you have received and the postcard you hope to write.
Want to participate? Sometime on or before May 2nd write your own Postcard from Parenthood post on your blog. Somewhere in the post include this button.

Mondays with Mac

On Wednesday May 2nd come back here and link-up your post. Read and comment on the other posts from wise mamas and papas and they will do the same for you.  In the week that follows I will feature a number of your posts on my blog as well.

But wait! It gets even better! This carnival is being sponsored by My Chi Chi Baby who have generously offered up a $100 gift certificate to be given away to one lucky blogger. It’s totally like a real carnival now. Prizes and everything! Except that nobody is going to pressure you onto one of those rides that spins you around and around until someone pukes on you. But, lets face it, it’s parenthood so someone is probably going to puke on you anyway.

My Chi Chi Baby is a fabulous children’s boutique with discount store prices. You should probably go ahead and like them on facebook and follow them on twitter now.

If you think you will be participating in this carnival please leave me a comment below!
