Mom of the Year!

I'm so very lucky for all the wonderfully creative people who visit my blog daily. Your comments are always welcome and you all inspire me to become more creative. I always appreciate the awards that are given to me too, they make me feel extra special.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to receive this award from a very busy mommy blogger who I admire very much, Amber over at Mommy Mania. Thank you Amber!!

Like most awards - there is a little extra assignment that go along with the lovely honor:

1) Admit that ONE thing you feel awful about involving being a mom. Get it off your shoulders. Once you've written it down, you are NO LONGER allowed to feel bad. It's over with, it's in the past. Remember, you're a good mom!

2)To remind yourself that you ARE a good mom, list SEVEN things you love about your kids, you love doing with your kids, or that your kids love about you. These are the things to remind yourself of EVERY DAY that you rock!

3)Send this to FIVE other Moms of the Year that deserve forgiveness and a reminder that they, too, are the best moms they can be!!! Remember to send them a note to let them know you've selected them, and add a link to the person who nominated you!"

My Answers:

1. Well my kids are older, 16, 19, 21 and are pretty independent now, but when I look back to when they were little I always felt bad when I had to discipline them by taking something they liked away for a period of time or sending them to their room. It didn't happen all that often, but it always made me feel horrible.

  • My kids are equally smart and talented
  • I'm proud of them and think they make great choices every day
  • I love when we can all be home for a family day/night
  • I think they are proud of the way they were raised
  • I'm proud of the young adults they have become
  • They are considerate and compassionate
  • They are very close and have an amazing respect for one another
I'm not going to single out recipients this time, so I would like to give this award to everyone who visits my blog who is a mom -- you are all special to me and all deserve this award. Feel free to take it and display it on your blog

I so hate taking things away from my kids to have them behave! Mine are 13, 12, 9 and 8 so there are plenty more years left of that particular punishment. Thanks for letting me know you survive it :)

Enjoy what is left of the week!

I love when we are all home for a night too. Happens ever more rarely.
