No, really. Do it. Right now. In the comments. You think I’m kidding? I’m not.
You see, recently I was talking to my mom about a woman I know (no, not you) who tends to toot her kids’ horn a lot. And you know what she said? “Well, we all think our kids are pretty wonderful, don’t we?” And you know what I thought? “We do!“
But here’s the thing. When we share accomplishments — in conversation, on Facebook, or even on a blog (who, me?) — it can come off as bragging. Goodness knows, there are hard days we laugh at together. It’s perfectly acceptable to vent about how hard motherhood can be. So why not shout from the blog comments when things are going well, too?
One of the greatest things about being a parent is feeling heart-bursting pride in our kids. So let’s celebrate that — cheer on each other, and our kids — here and now.
What are your kids really good at? What have they accomplished recently? What do they do that fills your chest with that feeling that you must be doing something very right? Because you are, mamas. You are.
