Have you noticed that all the listicles featuring amazing parenting wins feature dads? What I wanted to know was where are all the moms nailing this parenting thing! One mama I talked to said that part of the problem is that moms are expected to go above and beyond for their kids so when they kick some serious parenting butt it just isn’t a story.
Nuts to that! We say moms who are being awesome in their day to day deserve a public high five so we’re making our own listicle featuring moms, moms, and more totally awesome moms!
Check it out and be inspired:
Or let your kids hook you into their passions – even if it means an afternoon with a fishing pole in your well-manicured hand like this mom.
So does Eloise, shown here playing Call of Duty while breastfeeding her three-week-old!
This mama is teaching her kid what’s cool early – and safely, too, which is even sweeter.
And mom Toni is showing her girl she can be anything!
And here’s a mama who not only knows that sometimes the only thing you can do is cry with your kids, she also wrote some very touching letters to all the different kinds of moms out there.
This mama doesn’t leave her little one behind when it comes to finding adventure! (Read more about biking with a toddler here.)
Moms like Rachel, a surf instructor, make fun a family affair. She surfed right up until delivery!
Of course, you don’t have to be totally extreme to nail it when it comes to being a mom. Like mama Amy said, “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em!”
Or let them join you – like Audrey did when her little guy wanted cool blue toes just like mommy! (He still to this day likes his toes colorful.)
So now you tell us – how have YOU nailed this motherhood thing lately??
