What Are Your Mom Strengths?!

8:37:00 PM



Happy Thursday people! We're in the home stretch of this week and I am ready for a little weekend relaxation. Truthfully this Summer has felt so Go-Go-Go that I think I could use a little vacation from my vacation. Do any of you feel like that? I know I've only been at this motherhood thing for four years but, I'm still shocked at how busy a toddler's social life is. 

Now, I know we all have our own style of parenting that works best for us and our kids. And while I may not be the best at organization, cleaning & other STAHM attributes, I still have two healthy & Happy Babies. Sure a lot of that is do to genetics and the grace of God... But, I also think my flexible parenting plays a part.



Currently, as I am typing this, my house is pretty messy. The kids are eating their lunch and watching Doc McStuffins. I'm going over the mental list of things I am behind on and texts I need to return.

I have friends who's homes are always impeccable. Who stay on top of screen time (or lack there of.) And they somehow manage to pull all of that off and still be amazing mom's. For me, it's different. I've never possessed those gifts, which my Mother and Husband can attest to. But I do excel at a few other things, to make up for it.

I am good at creating a relaxed home environment for my children. I'm good at emotions and teaching my kids how to process them. I'm good at pretending and encouraging and being spontaneous. 

I may have forgotten to sign my kids up for any summer activities this year (oops!), but we've already managed to fit in plenty of spontaneous art projects, museum trips and learning into to our summer break. And the kids seem happy. And content. Which I'm beyond grateful for. 

Like I said we all excel in different areas and rock motherhood in our own way. And I am so thankful for products that help me pick up the slack in the areas I'm not proficient in. That's why I love these Happy Baby Clearly Crafted  pouches. They give me peace of mind that my kids are eating healthy & organic even though I may not have prepared a gourmet meal. They help me in a pinch when we make a spur of the moment trip to the splash pad. And I love that the actual pouch is clear, so I can SEE the food they're eating and know that it's good!







If you love these things as much as I do, then I have a $1 off Coupon for you to use at Wal Mart! Just click HERE!

Also, I would love to hear in the comments what you think you're strengths are as a mom. I think we all spend a little too much time thinking of the areas where we lack, so why not give your own horn a little toot and brag on yourself for just a second in the comments!!! 


XOXO

  3. My strengths are organization (a place for everything and everything in it's place) and helping my kids with their emotions and the things they are growing through and I hope I'm helping them to be decent people!!

  4. Love this - we all have different strengths... I do good with getting my kids outside and moving - I make them try to climb the playground equipment on their own a few times so they can see their own strength develop and feel good about their physical abilities... with boys it's very helpful

  6. It's hard to look at your own strengths and not concentrate on theirs. I create a loving and safe environment for my kids. That's a strength.
