Mommy of the Year(ish)

Wow - my first blog award. Thanks to Jen over at for picking me!

As a condition of the award, I am to blog the following:

the rules: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!

I feel bad that the boys are often asleep or nearly asleep when I get home during the week. I know I get up and spend hours with them in the morning every morning, and that they don't get home too much before I do, that one day they will stop going to bed at 7 pm, blah, blah...but right now it is just hard. Don't know if just writing it here will make me feel better, but I will give it a shot.

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!
1) I love Brewer's giggles. They melt my heart.
2) I love watching Bonham 'work out' on the mat. He is SO strong for such a little boy. It cracks me up.
3) I love hearing myself say 'my sons this' and 'my sons that' one point in life ( a very very long point in my life) I was afraid I would never be able to say those words...
4) I love that my kids seem happier when I come into the room.
5) I love it when people tell me what gorgeous boys they are.
6) I love that the boys have special attachments to me and their dad.
7) I love listening to Jon talk to them. It's hilarious and so sweet at the same time the way he relates to the boys.

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!
