I am a Good Mom

I have read 37% of Sarah Bessey’s book My Practices of Mothering.


Chapter 4: The Practice of Speaking Life… She writes “In fact, I call myself a good mother.”
Rather bold… but totally profound in my head.  I could tell you all day long about how wonderful and brilliant and funny and breath taking my children are…My husband is pretty gosh darn spectacular too… but I wait for others to tell me what I’m good at… Why I’m awesome…  So I am using this post to make a list of why I am a good mother:
  1. I apologize to my children.
  2. I am a pretty darn good story reader.
  3. I recognize their needs… hugs… food… taking a break.
  4. I try really hard to embrace learning.
  5. I love…
