Happy Mother's Day! As mothers, you have the most wonderful, challenging, important, life-long job in the world!!!! I have the most unique, amazing, loving, caring, funny, interesting, happy kids in the world. Ok, I might be a little biased ;) I really learn something new from them every single day!
(Me with my baby's baby)
(the whole fam!)
Here are some of the rules that I have followed along the way and the ROI is immeasurable!
#1 (the only real rule) Unconditionally love your children and don't drop them on their heads.
#2 Give them respect.
#3 Be really present.
#4 LISTEN, no really listen!!! Pay attention and hear the unspoken.
#5 Big kids don't always cry for help.
#6 Laugh all the time, have fun!!! Always!!!
#7 Don't make a lot of rules, its hard enough to be a kid. Just truly enjoy your time together!
If you do it right, your kids, even teenage kids and adult kids will love hanging out with you - its quite awesome!
I'd love to hear what has worked for you as a mother! Tell me your tips in the comments below!
