In one word, your kids would describe you as "graceful." When you're covered in spaghetti sauce and balancing two loads of laundry in one basket, you might not feel very graceful, but your kids see you as the epitome of the word. The reason? Even when you have 20 things happening all at once, you maintain your strength, composure, and sense of calm. You are true grace under pressure and they know it, even if they can't articulate it just yet!
In one word, your kids would describe you as "funny!" Some Moms are serious or grave, others embrace their playful side. Even when things around you are pure chaos, you can always find a reason to laugh, make a silly face, or simply crack a joke. Your kids see you as the type of Mom who is simply hilarious. You always know how to make your kiddos laugh and aren't afraid to be the butt of your own joke from time to time!
In just one word, your kids would describe you as "feisty!" Let's face it, you're not a regular mom, you're a cool fun mom. While some mothers are taking life too seriously and letting every little thing, you're still living life to the fullest and finding a reason to laugh. You're not afraid to say what's on your mind, live your life out loud, or be your most authentic self. Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you've lost your identity!
In just one word, your kids would describe you as "giving!" Let's face it, you would do anything for your kids, even if it meant giving up some time or material things for yourself. While you might not think that your kids notice just how much you do on a given day, they really do. They see you as a kind and giving person who will do anything for them and the people you love most!
In just one word, your kids would describe you as "gentle!" You're the type of mom who is always ready with a hug, good advice, or a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You take a gentle approach to mothering and are just about as calm about the whole thing as one can be. You don't raise your voice, sweat the small stuff, or nit pick over little things. You're a gentle soul who just wants to spread a bit of goodness. You might not think your kids notice who you are, but they really do!
