The Thoughtful Spot Weekly Blog Hop – Week #29

This post may contain affiliate links. Check out my disclosure policy.

Thanks for joining us again for the Thoughtful Spot!

We’ve been a little busy this week, since we welcomed Daniel Patrick on March 17th! Saint Patrick’s Day couldn’t be a better birthday for an Irish baby!


The Thoughtful Spot is a place to share family friendly posts – crafts, recipes, homeschool ideas and more! Visit us here each week, take a rest on the tree stump and read the blog posts that everyone has thoughtfully shared. You can learn all about the wonderful hosts HERE.


Let’s check out some of the great ideas from last week’s hop!

Number One Bee The Number One Bee – Thoughts About Vaccines


Over at Atlanta Mom of Three, she’s talking about vaccinations. Be sure and check out the comments for more discussion of a controversial topic. Congratulations on being the most visited post!

More of my favorites:

Thoughtful-Spot-Bees-2 Starting a Book Club for Kids

Over at World for Learning, Susan and Kat are sharing their tips for starting a book club with kids. I think we’ll plan to do this over the summer! So much fun!
(don’t miss our tips for reading with kids, too!)

Thoughtful-Spot-Bees-3 5 Little Bunnies Finger Rhyme


Maeve loves singing, and I need to expand my repertoire. Since she’s at home, and not in a preschool or Mother’s Day Out, it’s up to me to find some ideas. I love checking out the fun toddler and preschool songs over at Let’s Play Music. This 5 Little Bunnies looks like so much fun!

Thoughtful-Spot-Bees-4 DIY Cherry Limeaide – Just Like Sonic!


Sadly, the Sonic that was closest to my house is now out of business. I loved finding this recipe for a CopyCat Sonic Cherry Limeaide – I’m going to try it with club soda for a little less sugar.

Thoughtful-Spot-Bees-5 Nice Things to Do for New Moms


Even though we’ve been down this road of welcoming a new baby many times, I’m always amazed at the amount of adjustment it takes to get everything running smoothly again.

The tips that Carrie Elle offers are wonderful — I just have to remind my husband that when someone calls and offers to help, his answer will always be ‘YES!’
