Welcome back to the #ItsOK Linky. We are already on week 5 and we have had such amazing support from all you lovely bloggers over the past five weeks so a massive thank you to you all!
There seemed to be a theme in last week’s linky where a lot of you were all talking about coping or not coping with the number of kids you have. I loved it because I have recently gone from a mom of 2, to a mom of 2 + 1 teenage step-daughter. The adjustment has been … interesting! Seriously. The difference between 2 kids and 3 kids has been huge! Not in terms of behaviour, because she is awesome, just in terms of the space and volume of my workload – cooking, laundry, errands, to-remember list! It’s good to know I’m not alone in the struggle!
On To The Linky!
If this is your first time at the #ItsOK Linky, then welcome! This is the linky that embraces all the ups and downs of parenting with no judgement. We know that there is not such thing as a perfect parent and this linky is a safe place where you won’t be judged for not being perfect (perfection is relative, anyways), but appreciated for being the best parent YOU can be. For doing the best YOU can. For Perfectly Imperfect Parenting, which leaves you and your children happier!”
Your posts can be about parenting fails, real-life incidents that reflect real parenting, helpful advice, rants about being an imperfect parent in a seemingly perfect world. Heartfelt, funny, serious, whatever you like, we’d love to read them!
