10 Reasons I'm a Great Mom Challenge

Why is it so hard to admit we're great at what we do? Moms give themselves more pressure and criticism than anyone in any work field. Raising kiddos is HARD, there's no denying that. So why do we make the job even harder by not giving ourselves credit where it's due? We worry instead of sleep, compare instead of empower, kicking ourselves where we think we've gone wrong, and somehow find time to place judgement on another mother's parenting style (you know we've all done it).

Isn't it silly that we want our kids to be strong and able to pat themselves on the back when credit is due, but we won't do it for ourselves when it comes to raising them. What kind of an example are we setting for our children? This is something I've been working on and have to continually to work on daily. Those little ones are always watching us and can pick up on how we feel about ourselves. So I'd like to issue a challenge to all you moms out there!

Write a public post listing 10 reasons you're a great mom!!! I think it's important to acknowledge and share the things we do best. By doing this, we can empower and uplift each other! So here's my list:

10 reasons I'm a great mom:

1. I take the time to play with my kids every day.

2. I try to keep all conversations positive in my home.

3. I involve my boys in all of my projects in some way.

4. I tell them I love them throughout the day - every day .

5. I let them just be boys and get dirty.

6. I teach my boys to be confident.

7. I try to make sure my boys eat healthy.

8. I've encouraged my boys to be independent and implemented chores and rewards.

9. I pray with my children.

10. I encourage other mom's I'm close to...especially when they are struggling.

Wow, that was harder than I thought it would be. But, honestly, I feel better about myself! I hope you will take this challenge, too! If not for me, for your children.

Here are a list of mom bloggers I follow and look up to and would like to see take the challenge. I can't wait to read what others say! Pass on the challenge! :)

Even if you weren't tagged, please feel free to take the challenge!  Write and post your list, and then tag some other mom bloggers. I'd love to see what you're best at as a mother, so come back and leave me a comment with a link to your post! You can also grab the button below to add to you post. I'd love to see it floating around in blogland!

  1. Oh Goodness! 10 reasons?! Thank you for tagging me! I look up to you also! Great post! We don't give ourselves enough credit for sure.

    1. I teach my kids discipline and love.

    2. My daughter and I go to her bedroom and talk often; when we want to or when she's upset. (doesn't seem like much, but it makes us closer. She knows she can talk to me about anything and she opens up a lot when it's just her and I)

    3. I tell my kids I love them everyday.

    4. I make them play outside!! (This is because they don't need to grow up in front of a computer or tv, something I think is best for them)

    5. We do family night EVERY Sunday which is what the kids want to do; watching movies, crafts, games...etc... It's about our Children.

    6. The kids help with chores and cooking.

    7. I teach them respect

    8. They cuddle up with me on the couch.

    9. They can camp outside or inside, and play in the dirt.

    10. Because in everything I do... My kids come first!
