Put on your seatbelts, because we’re going all the way to New Zealand on Monday! Karyn @ Kloppenmum tells us about what she thought things would be like when she first became a mother. But what about those things that we don’t expect, that no-one tells us about?

On Tuesday, we stay international as we head off to South Korea. There, Ms. V ponders the question: what’s in a name? Join us for this interesting read about how names are chosen in South Korea and what they mean.

On Tuesday evening, a guest post in the social good column! Sarah Hughes is trying to raise awareness of maternal health and pre-eclampsia.

On Wednesday, we will be in Nevada with Roxanne. This mom talks about how we instinctively try to do things for our children as they navigate their early childhoods. Are we doing right by them, or do we try too hard to keep our children close to us?

On Thursday, we head off to Massachusetts to hear from Kyla P’an. Kyla talks about living in excess, relating to everything from finances to food and possessions, and how we can help our children keep a sense of perspective.

On Thursday evening we have a new writer interview! Let’s get to know Martine de Luna from the Philippines!

On Friday we will be in North Carolina with Frelle, who tackles the difficult topic of post-partum depression. After living with depression for several years, she found an online community of support and understanding.

On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to the week’s question!
