This week, Michal, from the wonderful All Things Mom Sydney, gives her parenting wisdom and insight on In Conversation With.

TJ’s honest, open and beautiful discussion about parenting had me reminiscing about those early months and the first year of A’s life.

If you haven’t come across Suzanne’s blog And Another 10 Things, I recommend you check it out. Her quirky style and lists of ten – who doesn’t love lists – is a clever way of embracing parenthood and finding the funny in it, and of course the serious and heartfelt moments too. Suzanne has joined me for In Conversation With and I was so amazed to read her answers. I somewhat feel like Suzanne is my long lost twin sister! Our lives are travelling on a very similar path and I can relate to pretty much everything she says. I really should listen to my long lost twin and find my tribe!
I am so excited to talk to Lucy this week who is a Stay-at-Home Mum and a fantastic blogger. In fact, Lucy has given me some tips on how to organise my own blogging life. It’s not easy being a Stay-at-Home Mum as she points out, but her list of positives out weigh any negatives there might be, and I just love the list! Lucy shares her thoughts with us on family life, being a mum and managing to find that all elusive balance between finding time to work on her blog and care for her kids. Remember to check out Lucy’s blog and say hi to her on twitter!
