Mother of the Year? Seriously? Do You Actually READ My Blog?!?

My new friend Melissa over at Saving Cents with Sense has nominated me as Mother of the Year. While flattered, I had to stop for minute and think about what in the world she read on this blog that made her think I might qualify for the award, 'cause frankly, I wonder myself some days how my kids are even still alive and normal. That's not to say anyone needs to call CPS, I take good care of my kids. I just think that I could be doing so much better at helping them develop into really great people. Anyway, thanks to Melissa for thinking I have done something worthy of receiving her award. Here are the rules I have to follow in order to receive the award:

Admit 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!

I yell too much. When my kids lose their minds I try to stay calm, but there are times when I lose it too and I yell. Not good. I hate that about myself. I'm working on changing that. My kids deserve a better example of how to deal with conflict and stress.

•Remind yourself 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 everyday that you Rock!

I love hugging my kids, I love telling stories at night with them, I love taking walks with them, I love dancing with them, I love playing games with them, I love picking them up from school, I love smelling their clean hair after baths.

•Send this to five other Mom's of the year that deserve credit for being great moms and remind them that they 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.

For the Mom of the Year award, I nominate the following moms, because I find them to be some of the best examples I could hope to follow when it comes to truly loving and caring for their children:

Life at Our Zoo
Johnson Team Mom
Hope from the Edge
You Don't Have to Like Me
Two Times the Fun
Kuntz Family

Go forth Great Moms, and nominate other Great Moms, that we may multiply and prosper!

wheew. I was so glad to see that I wasn't nominated - I don't think i could measure up. YOU totally deserve it!

Dude, I am seriously honored you called my name! I'll do my duty and pass this on to some fabulous Moms! Thanks much!

p.s. You might take it back after I answer the questions.

Whoa...thanks?! I feel the same way you did. Does she not read my blog and realize that I am saving money for my kids future therapy they are going to need? :) Thanks girl...that is so nice. I'll have to ponder some of those questions...the things I do wrong, or don't like are the easy ones to answer. I can rattle those off quickly. Can't we all though. You rock girlie.
