Hi everyone! Welcome back to the #ItsOK Linky – Week 14! I’m hosting this week, for the first time in ages and I am super excited. I can’t wait to read all your ‘parenting win’ and ‘parenting fail’ posts. The whole idea of the #ItsOK linky is to link up posts that inspire other parents, or make us realise we’re not the only one dealing with the highs and lows of parenting. And that it’s okay to laugh about it sometimes too. Or cry. Or have a glass of wine or two on a school night. Whatever! It’s All Okay.

So, let’s get the show on the road!

#ItsOK Featured Blogger

The Featured Blogger from last week was the lovely Kelly from Daydreams Of A Mum with her post Note from a needy mum to her terrific teens. That’s two weeks in a row Kelly has been our featured blogger! I just flippen love this post! Please do take a look if you missed it last week.

On To This Week!

As I will be hosting this week’s link-up, I will be commenting on all your lovely posts. I will be helped by my favourite co-hosts who will also be commenting on your posts.

You should get at least 3 comments on the post you link up, and hopefully a few more! Remember, the more you give, the more you get back!

The hosting of this linky is done on a rota basis, we have Nicole from Tales From Mamaville, Kate from Twins Tantrums & Cold-Coffee, and Jacqui from One Messy Mama. This week the lovely Kate from The Mum Conundrum will be taking a little break. But don’t stress, the rest of us have got you covered.

The #ItsOK Linky Rules

For those of you who might be new to the linky, welcome! And for those of you who might need a reminder, here are the rules of the linky:

1. Add ONE link to the link up below. Comment on the host’s post

3. Please also comment on the post before yours as well as another of your choice. In terms of linky etiquette this is pretty much the golden rule. Remember the more you give, the more engagement (and bloglove) you get!

4. The linky will run every Tuesday morning at 7 am until Thursday evening at 11.55 pm (GMT). Each of the five hosts will be taking it in turns to host the linky.

5. Please add the linky badge to the bottom of your post or display it on your sidebar. If you are having trouble with mine, please send me a message to let me know, or you can grab the badge from any of the other hosts.

6.  Follow and tweet us with your post’s link to @momof2lgs @MamavilleTales @TheMumConundrum @twinstantrums @onemessymama4 using the hashtag #ItsOK and the five of us will retweet you!

7. The hosts will choose their favourite post which will be featured the following week and will also provide a back link to your site. If your post is featured as one of our favourites then you are very welcome to display our lovely ‘#itsok Featured Post’ badge on your sidebar.
