Nomination for Mom Of The Year

CARMA, I am honored with this nomination! This lady is a riot and an absolute sweetheart! If you havnt already, you need to go check out her blog and participate in her "Cheeseball Tuesdays" and enter in her giveaway! THANK YOU DAAAHHH LINK!

I believe every mom out there deserves one of these awards. It can be very frustrating, yet entertaining and rewarding at the same time, being a mom.

Rules of the Award:
Admit 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 awful about not being able to spend enough time with A (my 12 yo). With a 3 yo (B) and (not quite) 2 year old (E) clinging to "my apron strings" every waking moment, its been tough to get on the same schedule as her. The last year has been hard on our relationship. We keep pluggin along and hang out when time permits. I am anxiously awaiting school to be over with!
Remind yourself 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 everyday that you Rock!

  1. I love dinner time in our house. Its a chance for all of use to gather and chat. Afterwards, we get out the crayons, a game or our laptops (yes B has a "laptop" too) and just hang out.
  2. My girls are so spontaneous and come up with the most off the wall sayings. Yesterday B told me I had "stars in my eyes" How cute is that!
  3. The most precious thing is when my little E wraps her arms around my neck and says "I love you mommy" It makes my heart melt every time!
  4. They love it when I take them to Busch Gardens (theme park with roller coasters) all 3 of them have no fear and will ride everything if there wasnt a height/age limit.
  5. "I like it when you give me hugs and kisses mommy. It makes me happy!" From the mouths of my babes. (ok E was just copying her sis like always lol)
  6. I get to feel like a kid again when I take my girls to the park. Yeah I know, I'mma dork lol.
  7. I love it when my 2 yo fingerpaints with peanut butter. She is so artistic! 1 pbj, 10 little fingers, 1 beautiful white wall. Need I say more? :)
Send this to five other Mom's Of The Year that deserve credit for being great moms and remind them that they 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.

I nominate the following mahh velous moms...

Aw, thanks so much for this blessed award Dawn. I love the rules and what I'm supposed to type out about my kids. It's great and such an honor that you would think of me in this way. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I will work on this either tonight after my kids are in bed or tomorrow sometime. It's just difficult when they are needing my constant attention...I'm sure you can relate as most mom's can! LOL!!

Again, thanks Dawn....this is wonderful! I love it!!!


I think this is so great! Stopping by from SITS!

3 things:

1. I love that your B and my B both have laptops. 3 yo's are smart these days, lol!

2. I appreciate you giving me the nod. I give it back to you as well!

3. I enjoy all of your "7." Meal time is so much fun. My son and I sit at the table and eat and talk. Then we have cartoon time and hang out time.

Congrats on your award! And thank you for nominating me (though I'm not entirely certain I'm deserving)!

I've loved seeing you around my blog recently-your comments are always so thoughtful! I know we're going to be great bloggy friends...and not just because you give me awards either.
