Make it a point to encourage your child today.
I think I do a good job at encouraging my children everyday. For Abby, it is about her potty-using skills. Hayden is often about his language skills and the good use of different words.
Do one thing that is good for your health: walk 10 minutes, eat a piece of fruit or get a good night’s sleep.
I must say, the house was busy this week prepping for a baby shower, about the only thing I had time for WAS a good night’s sleep!
Teach your child a new word.
I had real good intentions with this one, but it was baby shower day! Hayden actually did a pretty good job at impressing me with words I didn’t know he was aware of. “our first party-goers are here” “Oh, we have another customer”
Turn off your phone, computer or TV today when your child is with you.
I personally don’t use the phone or computer much during the day OR watch TV when the kids are around. I will admit though, we are a big TV family. It is ALWAYS on! Mostly for background noise, but that is just a way of life for us.
Today’s focus: Love
No brainer one! You can’t have kids and not feel love everyday! I love them to no end!
So, that is the end of the challenge. How do you think I did? My opinion…well, I didn’t blog it everyday like I intended, but I didn’t want to bore myself and everyone else with it.
I went into it thinking it might help improve some of my mothering skills, but in the end, what it did for me was make me realize I am already a pretty great mom! Most of the challenges are something I do on a regular basis with my kids. I will admit, about half way into the challenge, I got bored with it. It seemed redundant to blog about everyday mom stuff. But, I kept it up until the end. Now I can start blogging about fun stuff again!
