What does it mean to be a Mom of the Year? Where does this name come from? And how, on God’s green earth, did I earn this title?
I explained it all in this post, but in short, we all earn this title every day just by being a mom. It’s a title universally open to all and we can earn it for so many different reasons. Whether it’s because we do something totally awesome (oh the high of remembering to turn in the recipes for your son’s preschool class cookbook on time!) or whether we say it more in jest (yes, I did actually manage to not realize my daughter had an ear infection for over a week), we have to declare it. In this world, we beat ourselves up so much–way too much–and it’s time to start saying “I rock!”. We might not always feel like we truly earn the title, but please know that you do. Declare it with me loud and proud!
To help me celebrate this title, I asked some other gals to chime in how they are scoring their Mom of the Year award. THANK YOU, ladies and know that I love you all for naming it and claiming it!
Here’s the thing–we are all great, and we’re all in this together, so give yourself an award, and call it day. Whatever kind of day it was, you are a Mom of the Year.
