#ItsOK Bloggers Linky – Week 31

Welcome to Week 31 of the #ItsOK Bloggers Linky!

How has your week been? Ours has basically been birthday, birthday, birthday, Father’s Day, and relax!

The (now) four year old is on a massive birthday comedown, and after a few days of being a bloody angel, is now tired and tearful. This morning’s pre-school run was NOT fun. Twins in a buggy outside as too small to take them in. They were screaming, the four year old was clinging to me screaming. And I found myself walking home in tears too, once they finally managed to pull him off my leg. If you can’t beat them, join them, eh?

But you’ll be pleased to know, after stressing about ridiculous things surrounding throwing a big party, it was a success! Obviously there was the obligatory birthday boy tears over having to go on a green Didi car rather than a red one, but hey, I’ll let him have that one. Oh and I gave out gin and chocolate for the mums in the party bags – so that went down well! And needless to say I needed more than one glass of prosecco to recover afterwards.

You can read my random middle of the night panics here – The ridiculous things mums actually stress over when throwing a kids’ birthday party.

Thanks for joining us again at the #ItsOk Bloggers Linky if you’re one of our regular bloggers. If any of you are newbies – welcome, and if you have no idea what you’re doing, you’re in good company with me.

We loved all your posts last week, but remember to keep them on-topic. Real life parenting stuff only please. No reviews, no crafts, no non-parenting waffle!

#ItsOK linky hosts

Onto the linky! 

My lovely co-hosts are parent bloggers Kate from The Mum Conundrum, Carly from Mom of Two Little Girls, Nicole from Tales from Mamaville, and Jacqui from One Messy Mama. Although Kate and Jacqui are currently taking a few weeks off.

Nicole hosted the linky last week and has chosen Dad’s Delicious Dinners’ post Mental Health and Parenting. Well done Ian! You can grab your badge here.

Hey, ‘It’s okay!’

If you’re a first timer to the linky, find out all about it here. We’re basically saying it’s okay to not be okay sometimes – particularly when it comes to parenting. Just do what you need to do to get through the day – and if that means shoving the kids in front of the tele for a morning whilst you pack for a holiday, then so be it!

THE RULES

We’re all pretty relaxed here at #ItsOK, but for the linky to work we have a few rules:

1.) You can add ONE of your posts to the link-up – any post you like, as long as it’s on a REAL LIFE PARENTING THEME and you haven’t posted it on the #ItsOK linky before.  But as parent bloggers, I’m guessing that’s pretty simple.

2.) Before you add your post to the link-up, make sure you pop the linky badge, using the html below, on your post. It’s not as scary as it looks, honest. Even I managed to do it!

3.) Make sure to comment on the host’s post, the post before yours, and one of your choice. We’ve noticed a lot of people aren’t doing this, and that’s pretty crappy.

4.) The linky will run every Wednesday morning at 7am until Thursday evening at 11.55pm.

Share the love

5.) Tweet us (@twinstantrums @MamavilleTales, @momof2lgs and @onemessymama4) with the URL to your post. Make sure you include the hashtag #ItsOK so that we know you’re one of those lovely parent bloggers types and tweet us your linky post, and not just telling us about your random day… Remember this step – if you don’t tweet us, it’s tricky for us to share.

6.) Carly is hosting this week so will comment on all your posts, and they will be retweeted and shared on Facebook. If your post is featured as one of our favourites then you are very welcome to display our lovely ‘#ItsOK Featured Blogger’ badge on your sidebar.

7.) Come and join our lovely Facebook group, and we’ll share your posts on there, as well as on the #ItsOK Facebook page – pop over to like and follow us where we’ll share the best parent blogger posts from each week’s linky too.

8.) Are you on Pinterest? Come on over and follow our #ItsOK board, we’ll share your posts and you can plunder all the super-useful/funny/interesting reads and finds we amass too.

PARENT BLOGGERS KEEPING IT REAL

The #ItsOK linky is all about celebrating real-life parenting. Please link up with posts on this theme ONLY. We’re not too keen on random sponsored posts, and we’ll delete anything non-parent related. We’re all about Mum (and Dad) life, warts and all.

Even I can follow these rules, so it can’t be that difficult! Any problems, just give us a shout.

It’s a great way of finding other blogs to read, and realising somehow or other we’re all in the same boat – and #ItsOK!

Happy linking!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
