I am a good Mommy because my kids still smile whenever I come home. It doesn't matter where I have been or how long I have been gone they always migrate to me and I always get a smile and usually a quick kiss.

I'm a good mom because I try my best. Even if I'm tired, fed up, or want something, she comes first. I'm a good mom because I make sure that our time together is quality while teaching her life skills along the way. I love when she tells people thank you, please, I'm sorry etc. without being prompted . . . makes my heart swell! Developmentally, I don't rush her and I enjoy every stage, even with it's rough spots.

I know I'm a good mom because of the love and compassion I see my boys emulate. It helps, too, that my 3 year old uses the same words and phrases as I do to express praise and affection. His one year old brother will try to come hug big brother when he's crying in time out for knocking little brother off the rocking horse, too. My boys are so sweet!

I feel like I am a good mom because I know that I don't always know what is right.I feel like I am a good mom because I recognize that all decisions boil down to choosing fear or love, and in every action, every day, I strive to set the example of choosing love.

My kids are still alive and well, so yes, I am a good mother...
A mom from Grand Rapids, MI said:
I feel like a good mom when my DD comes in and jumps in the bed on the weekend and we all wrestle and giggle together.
A mom from Westwood, KY said:
I know that I am a good mother when sacrificing something of my own to make sure my son has something (a toy, or whatever be it) isn't painful, it's joyous. My son has taught me more in his short 16 months about being a good person than I ever realized and in turn, I know I'm passing generosity, compassion, understanding, and tolerance on to him.
I also know I'm a good mom when he declares his feet are dirty and he'd liked them washed, please. Hygiene is something that should be started young and with patience, he caught right on!
A mom from somewhere said:
I think my parenting style is pretty damn awesome and effective in raising a bright, respectful, imaginative and curious child. But I'm definitely far from perfect. However, I try to make up for those imperfections by constantly giving my child affection (sometimes she even protests "Mommy, stop kissing me!"). I like what my uncle said to me once "I'm surprised my boys aren't taller because of how often I squeeze them and kiss them". I'm the same way.
But, I'm not about to give myself an award. I'll wait until the teenage years to see just how awesome I really am. =)A mom from somewhere said:
I feel that I am a good mom because I am my children's most fierce advocate. I am proactive, and I will not take No for an answer.

I feel that I am a good mother because every day I try to improve myself to be more positive and happy for my kids.
I know that I am a good mother when my kids come to me first thing in the morning waiting for a good morning hug.
I know that I am a good mother when my kids feel like they can come to me with any problem they have and not have to suffer in silence.
I know I am a good mother when I see my children acting kindly towards others. I know that by setting a good example for them to follow is being a good mother.

I am a good mom because even though I can't provide my kids with the flashiest toys or the best brand name clothes I do my best and make sure that all the basic needs are met.
Yvonne from Salt Lake City, UT said:
I am a good mom because I take a deep breath before reacting to what could become a negative situation. I am a good mom because I learn from my mistakes, and I'm not afraid to tell my children my mistakes so they can learn from them too. I am a good mom because I love spending time with my family - that is at the very top of my list of things that make me happy. And last but not least, I am a good mom because I recognize that there is always lots of room for improvement, to become an even better mom.

Amy from Salt Lake City, Ut said:
I'm a good mom because I love my kids. And that love drives what I do for them each day. And I know they love me when they can still tell me they love me and that I'm the best mom after all the mistakes I make and the bad days I have.

I know I am a good mom when my kids are bathed and in their Pj's snuggling up with their loveys at night.
Earlier that day I try to fill it with love and attention. In hopes for a better tomorrow. Even though I can't give em the world. I would at least show it to them.
Melissa from Salt Lake City, UT said:
I think I am a good mom because I do the best that I can to raise my kids. Other peoples standards are not a factor in my parenting. I do what I think is best for my kids and that is what makes me a good mom.

I know I'm a good mom when my son comes over to me with a smile and says. "I love you mom" and gives me a huge hug.
I know that I'm a good mom when my daughters face lights up when she hears my voice or sees me.
Karla from Salt Lake City, UT said:
Being a mom of special needs kids can be challenging at times...
I think the fact that I accept each child for WHO they are not WHAT they are/aren't makes me a good mom...
Each one of my children have obstacles that must be overcome or adapted to for them to succeed in life and I think so far they are doing quite well.
Aleshia from Salt Lake City, UT said:
I consider myself a good mom when I put myself in time out instead of them.
Vanessa from Salt Lake City, UT said:
I consider myself a good mom because I go out for Moms Nites Outs monthly so I can then come back refreshed and ready for all the fun and turmoil.
Katie from Salt Lake City, UT said:
I feel I am a good mom when I do the little things: tuck my kids into bed at night, not freak out when the juice is spilled on the floor, and read a story even though I really don't want to.
from Salt Lake City, UT said"
What makes me a good mom is that I try to be a good mom. I come up short....a. lot....but deep in my heart I have the desire to be as good of a mom I can be every day, and I do whatever I can to achieve that goal, and if I have an off day, I don't beat myself up over it, I realize hey I'm human and move forward.
SO...pat yourself on the back and live every single day knowing you are doing you very best to be the best possible person you can be (mom, wife, friend, sister, etc.) Then, you have it all in the bag.
Julie from Salt Lake City, Ut said:
I'm a good mom because I haven't sold my kids yet.
Michelle from Salt Lake City, Ut said:
I am a good mom because I do the best that I can do with what I am given. I feel the most important thing I could teach my kids is to be happy and laugh at the world. If they learn that skill, many trials in life can be handled easier.
