I think we are nervous about saying that we are good at something. We do not want to come across as cocky or arrogant. But its ok to know that you are good at something, its ok to feel pride in your accomplishments.
Bee is really good at art. I hope that she will know how to take a compliment. I hope that she feels proud of her talent.
Bunny is really helpful. I hope that she knows that she is good at showing empathy, and I hope she feels proud about the fact that she thinks of others and what will make them happy.
I am proud of the mom that I am. I am not perfect, but I think its pretty cool that I let my kids jump on the bed, or play outside without me being on top of them always, or make a mess during arts and crafts, or use a hot glue gun (yes I trust in their abilities) I’m pretty laid back and that makes me a good mom. I’m a good mom because I snuggle them and kiss their cheeks every night as I am tucking them into their beds, and I am a good mom because I am patient with them when they get up for the 100th time to tell me they want a drink of water or they need to tell me something cool that happened to them that day. I’m a good mom because when I do loose my cool or make a mistake I apologize to them.
