Mum Blog Spotlight! (71 Toes)
When you think ‘mum’ what are some of your favorite describing words that come to mind? Loving, thoughtful and selfless are a few that came right away to us! The blog “71 Toes” by Shawni Pothier is an inspiring mum blog that adds a less-thought-of word to the list, which is deliberate! She writes inspiring posts about her family life all the way from what she chooses to hang on her walls to the way she instills hard work and independence in her kids! Her deliberate mothering and entertaining posts are an inspiration in getting the hard things done, but also in letting the fun things be fun! We love to learn how to communicate with our kids better and Shawni gives a lot of great suggestions on list of topics.
What really sets this blog apart though is her section ‘Keeping it real.’ She doesn’t spare the ‘love handles’ as Shawni so lovingly refers to the less pleasant part of her days! We know as mums that plans with kids rarely go as planned! Shawni’s posts are a reminder to find the joy in the sweat and tears of everyday life!
Shawni’s youngest daughter, Lucy, has a rare genetics syndrome called “Bardet-Biedl” that amoungst other heart wrenching health problems, leads to almost certain loss of eye sight. Shawni is a strong supporter of Foundation for Blind Children and participates in an annual Vision Walk. We love that she is actively trying to help the cause towards providing her daughter with a brighter future!
Shawni you are doing a great job with your blog in reaching out and uniting mothers with a sense of motherhood strength!
