We are good moms, right?! As a matter of fact, we are better than that, we are GREAT moms! My kids wear their Sunday best, even on Tuesdays, yours do too, right? When I cook, my kids scarf down the food so fast that I have to remind them to chew every bite at least 17 times. They ask for seconds and thirds, and of course, they decline ALL offers of dessert. Yours do too, right?
Or… perhaps the definition of being an awesome mom varies slightly at your house? Truth be told, motherhood in our house doesn’t always follow the conventional ideas of what the perfect mother looks like – and I am proud of it.

Moms, we are totally rocking motherhood. Let’s stand tall, stand proud and united in this journey. At the end of a long day, after the kids have whined, gagged and stomped their little feet for the last time. Once they are snuggled up in their beds, JUST about to doze off – they look at you with dreamy eyes and say a tired “I love you, mom!” – and THAT is why we do the things we do!
Remember – you are ROCKING motherhood!
