#ItsOK Bloggers Linky – Week 32

Welcome to Week 32 of the #ItsOK Bloggers Linky!

How has your week been? We’ve had a quiet one which has been quite welcome after the last hectic month of holidays and birthdays.

I’ve started thinking about the eldest starting school in September. Inductions are about to begin (in fact we missed the first one being on holiday – bad parents!), I started buying his school uniform last week, and am generally realising that I have a LOT of work to do to get him ready to hand over!

I wrote this post a while back Getting your four year old ‘ready’ to start school – and am still no closer to getting him to dress himself! A reward chart has been re-instated this week in the hope I actually wave him off on his first day being able to use a knife and fork… I’m not holding out much hope if I’m honest.

I’m also on a mission to get my twins to sleep through the night. This last week has been particularly ridiculous with each of them waking (then waking up the eldest) at least 3 times a night. Not sure how I go about it, but something has to be done!

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! And guess what – I’m hosting this week!

#ItsOK linky hosts

#ItsOK 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.

Carly hosted the linky last week and has chosen Liberty on the Lighter Side’s post What does it mean to be a ‘good enough’ parent? Well done! You can grab your featured blogger 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 cracking open the wine during the kids’ teatime at 5pm, then so be it!


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 #ItsOK linky 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.) I’m 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.


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!

Update: This linky is now closed but you can still read the linked up posts here.
