Power of Moms on Mother's Day

The Power of Moms

A few months ago, I went to a conference about the Power of Moms.  It is always nice to be reminded about the things that are important in mothering and refocus our energy and time to our family.  I enjoyed the opportunity to rediscover ways to be a better mother to these four kids. 

I am grateful for wonderful parents.  We are so blessed to be able to see them often. 
Love them so much. 

Mother's Day Brunch at the Elks Lodge

Marky made 5 sweet cards for me.  I love his writing!

This year on Mother's Day, I took a few moments and wrote each child a note about how grateful I am to be their mother. 

 It is exciting to see them grow and develop in their own unique ways. 

The best talk given at the conference was by a woman who has 7 daughters. 
The title of her short talk was
 "How to be a Great Mom- More or Less"

She gave 4 "Mores" and 4 "Lesses" we could do to be great moms. 
1.  Hugs
2.  Praise
3.  Listening
4.  Giving jobs so your child can contribute and feel good

1.  Good things.  (So many great activities for kids to do, but you become too busy as a family and miss the best things). 
2.  Frowning
3.  Grounding (Give More choices for consequences)
4.  Good Guys/Bad Guys (don't take sides when kids are fighting.  Give both kids same consequences).
