This post is not to toot my own horn rather it is a wonderful tag inspired by social media, mommy guilt and the need to acknowledge where we as mothers are going right in our lives instead of always feeling like we are failing.
I was tagged by Nicky over at Bunny, Monkey and Me, do yourself a favour and hop… lol you see what I did there anyway go over to her blog and show her page some love she is an awesome mommy of 2 boys who emigrated with her hubby a short while ago, her blog is honest raw and heart-warming and I always love reading her thoughts and posts!
Back to the post so we have been asked to highlight where we feel we are rocking motherhood with our kids, and here it goes.
10 reasons or things I rock at in motherhood.
BTW and FYI this is way more difficult than it sounds….
1- My kids are being raised to be open minded and understanding of all cultural beliefs, religions, sexual preferences and lifestyle choices.
2- My kids have the biggest, softest hearts ever, they are kind and gentle even though at times they can be pure chaos towards each other towards others and even complete strangers they show an empathy and understanding that makes my heart swell with joy
3- I am patient… most of the time
4- I will always fight for my children, I am their strongest advocate and will always ensure they that they know they are worth every bit of effort and more
5- I have taught my children that their differences are their strong points and what others may deem different, weird or abnormal is their chance to shine and prove that they are amazing and can achieve anything they set their minds to.
6- I always strive to encourage and elevate a thirst for and enjoyment of knowledge, my memories of lying on our lounge carpet listening to the radio with my dad with music ranging from one side of the spectrum to the other, discussing politics and historical events with him and the joy of reading that my mom passed on to me will always be something I want my children to share.
7- My children always come first, if they need something I will get it no matter the ‘sacrifice’ on my part.
8- There is never a shortage of love in our household, even when we get annoyed or angry with each other, even when there are times that we don’t particularly like each other or something one or the other has done, my children will always know how much I love them and there is never a shortage of love and affection between us.
9- My children know that whatever happens they can always come to me, I will always listen I will always be understanding of their feelings and encourage them to be open and honest with me, even when it is difficult.
10- I acknowledge that as a person, a mom and a woman I have flaws and make mistakes everyone does and my children know this its ok to have a bad day, its ok to fall, we cry we scream and then we get back up again and we strive to move forward and be the best we can, no one is perfect but we can give of our best and that is in itself is imperfect perfection.
Sjoe now that I got through that I would like to nominate the following mommies to share why they rock at motherhood and how they are rocking at motherhood.
