Sitting down to play with my kids has always been a struggle for me so this morning during the baby's nap, I decided to ask my 4-year old what makes a good mom:
1. She sweeps the floor
2. She makes stuff for us and others
3. She shares her stuff
4. She invites other kids over to play
While I'm sure each kid would have a different list, that's pretty simple. I know I still need to work on playing with them more, but I wonder if the "good mom list" in our heads is unnecessarily overwhelming us. Being a mom isn't easy. Being a good mom is even harder.
