Welcome! How Do You Do It? is a community of mothers of multiples. We believe in supporting each other, in sharing our experiences and questions, in friendship, and in encouragement. To help nourish our community, we host a weekly parenting link party, a link up open to all of our readers, whether you have multiples or not, where you can share your wisdom, your favorite posts, your insights, with our online community here at HDYDI and What’s up Fagans?.

We want to know: How do YOU do it?

How do you tackle tantrums, resistance, and discipline? What’s your potty training secret, your housekeeping kryptonite, or your trick for a good night’s sleep? How do you handle colic or cold, flu and RSV season? How do you keep your kids entertained during the long, cold, winter days? How do you handle being a stay-at-home mom, a working mom, or a single parent? How do you find time for your partner?


If you are a blogger and a parent, caregiver, or parent-to-be (no multiples required), we want YOU to link up! When it comes to parenting: How do you do it? Let us all know!

Link parties are a great way to connect with other bloggers, to share your wonderful content and posts, and to be inspired! Each week, we pick some of our favorite posts and feature them the following week on our site! Plus, we pin them on Pinterest, tweet them on Twitter, and share them on Google+ and Facebook! Get some more exposure for your great content, and don’t forget to check out the featured posts from last week’s link up!

Plus, ldskatelyn of What’s up Fagans? is co-hosting our link party on her blog as well. One party on two blogs means double the exposure.

This week’s featured posts:

We had 18 links last week. I enjoy reading them all (even if I don’t get a chance to comment always). My picks from last week’s links are:

My Guilty Little Secret - I HATED BreastfeedingClare of Are They Twins? has written a great post about why she hated breastfeeding and shares 5 things she wished she would have learned about breastfeeding while she was pregnant. She even linked to my post from last week about 11 Common Breastfeeding Myths and Lies. I would give both a read!

How to feel so much better about your parenting skills as a mother.I don’t know what it is, but too often as mothers we label ourselves as “the worst mother ever.” Jennifer of Home Grown Mommy shares four simple steps to helping you acknowledge that you are indeed doing a great job Mom! Such a great reminder to have positive thoughts about ourselves!

Mommy Daughter Mall Date for Less - Laughingandlosingit.netAnd my final feature is from Christina of Laughing and Losing It. She shares how she’s creating a fun memory shopping with her daughters, but without breaking the bank!
