You are the best Mom your kids could EVER have.

You say “no”.
You mean “no”.
You crack up in hysterics with (and at) your kids…until tears run down your legs.
You reflect on your mothering.
You want to be the best Mom for your kids.
You’re a coffee connoisseur, because some days that’s how you survive.
You’re contemplating becoming a sommelier (for both wine and chocolate.)
You serve cereal for dinner some nights.
You ARE Me:
You are doing an awesome job and your kids will appreciate it when they’re older.
Sure, you make mistakes as a Mom. I do too. You aren’t perfect. Neither am I. But you’re doing your best.
Working on balance, love, consequences, rewards, carpools, not pulling your hair out, keeping food in the house, remembering to shave your legs and sometimes doing the laundry.
So, are YOU a Good Mom? Check out some sample behaviors below and then you decide.
