Mommy Award

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

Of course I will read it!! :) I think you are a wonderful mother. Although I envy you for getting to be a SAHM, I just don't know if I could do it. (Like it would matter now, LOL, my kids are in school full time.) I wish I could stay at home in the summer though...that would be ideal, wouldn't it?? Your kids will treasure this time they get with you (and they will remember all that bouncing you're doing, LOL).

I agree summers are much nicer then winters! sometimes winters can get a little closterphobic. lol staying home is awesome but it would be much nicer if we were rich. =) it's like if you work, you make money to do fun things but dont have the time to do them. you stay home and have the time but not the money. You cant win for losing. =)
