My sis-in-law Jess nominated me for this. She is too sweet. =) I don't know if i deserve it though. I love being a mom but sometimes i over anylize all the things i wish i was better at. I sure hope i am not the only one out there that does this. =) I sure will accept it though. lol thanks Jess!!
There are just a few rules re: this award.
Here's the first:1. Admit one thing you feel awful about involving being a mom.
Well as i previously stated i strive each day to be a b etter mom. There is always something or other i feel i could do better at. I am a yeller, which i HATE. I wish they had a rehab for it. lol This is something i am working on and slowly getting much better at but i have to admit sometimes it is my first reaction. I'll move on though since my sis used that one. =) I wish i was more of a schedule person. I feel kids need to be on a schedule to help them thrive but since i have been a stay at home mom i have yet to do this. I always thought i would have a nap time, play time, art time, story time, etc but real life happened and that went out the window. =) I am working on this as well though.
Rule #2: Remind yourself why you are a good mom.
I love my kids with every inch of my being and they know this. All three are very much mommas kids and there normally is not a time of the day that at least one of them is by me. I play with them as much as i can. even when this means bouncing from my butt to my feet 10, 20, 30 times in a row on the trampoline cause they think it is cool. lol There is a lot of laughing, tickling, and yes even play fighting in the house. We do a lot of reading and coloring. I have also recently started getting healthier at the gym which has made me a much better mom. I am much more active then i was and i am just going to continue getting better each day.
Rule #3: Send this to five other Moms that deserve the Mom of the Year Award and remind them that they are the best moms they can be! Remember to send a note to those you selected so they will be sure to receive their award. I guarantee it will make their day, just as it did mine!
Unfortanetly i am knew to blogging and have no one to list here. =( So i guess this is just for you Jess. lol Hopefully you read it. haha
