Welcome to this week’s Twinkly Tuesday, the link party hosted by Sadia here at How Do You Do It?, along with Lisa and Caro of Mummascribbles and The Twinkle Diaries. We’ve got a fresh chance for you to meet new people, share your posts, and read blogs you might never come across elsewhere.

Each week Lisa, Caro, and I choose a favourite post, no easy task with the richness of content being linked.

My Tuesday Twinkler for the week is from one of HDYDI‘s authors. Yetunde-Olusola wrote about “The 30 Year Parenting Plan” on her blog, MyTwintopia. She reminds us to think beyond the 20 years or so that our children will be living in our homes and encourages us to care for ourselves, physically, emotionally, and financially.

Take care of yourself now so you can be there for your family later.

Lisa’s Tuesday Twinkler this week is from Mumbling Mel. She shares her story of the unthinkable tragedy of surviving a miscarriage. Not only did she have to undergo a D&C after learning that her baby had stopped growing at 9½ weeks, Mel and her husband had to explain to their 3-year-old what had happened. I can’t even begin to imagine how hard this must have been; just supporting my daughters as they grieve the loss of their stepmother’s pregnancy has been heart-wrenching.

Caro’s Tuesday Twinkler is from Carry on Katy. Katy wrote about how her amazing son Stan defies labels, despite everyone’s efforts to label him. She tells us why we shouldn’t always read the label, at least when it comes to people.

People don't need labels. Let's just look at them as people, shall we?

Take a moment to read them. You won’t regret it! We would, of course, love a visit to the host links too, and any others that strike your fancy.

On with this week’s link-up!

Link two posts, old or new, that you think deserve more readers!

Twitter: Be sure to mention me — @hdydi, Caro — @twinklediaries or Lisa — @mummascribbles, on Twitter and please use the hashtag #TwinklyTuesday. We’ll be sure to retweet every tweet tagged!

We’ll also visit everyone’s posts and leave comments between us.

Pinterest: Lisa and I pin every post with an image to the primary Twinkly Tuesday Pinterest board and the top pins are repinned on the HDYDI Twinkly Tuesday board. Send an email to or tweet her your email address and she’ll add you to the primary board. No more than 2 posts per week please!

Each week, all three of us pick our favourite posts which will be featured on the following week’s Twinkly Tuesday page.

There are a few easy rules to follow, to ensure that everyone’s posts get the attention they deserve. Please do make the effort to abide by the rules, in fairness to the vast majority who do. We do remove offenders if reminders go unheeded.

  • Link up to two posts per week — old or new.
  • Please be kind enough to add our badge to the bottom of your post/s. (Scroll down for the code.)
  • Please comment on at least two other posts including the one directly before yours. Visit and comment on as many others as you can. Of course, checking out the hosts’ posts would make us feel very loved.
  • Please use #TwinklyTuesday in your comments so people know where you found them!
  • By linking up, you give us permission to use images from your blog if featured. You also allow us to add you to a mailing list to receive a weekly announcement when Twinkly Tuesday opens.
