A Real Mum

Ok, I have been tagged by Mrs C. for the Real Mum meme. I am not exactly sure if I am doing this right, but I read her post to kind of get an idea. Then I am supposed to tag someone else with the same thing. I am not sure how many "points" of a real mom I am supposed to come up with, so I'll just do what comes to mind.

1. A real mommy sees her weaknesses and accepts that she isn't "perfect", thus she relies on the Lord for wisdom and direction.

2. A real mommy laughes when her children are "trying" to be funny and make a joke, even though they are annoying her at the moment.

3. A real mommy tries not to fret when her house isn't "perfect" from glitter paint stains on the couch, crayon marks on the wall, Polly pocket shoes found between the wall and carpet, etc.

4. A real mommy tries to get down and play with the children everyday. Quantity time *is* quality time.

5. A real mommy lets her children play in the dirt and enjoy it.

6. A real mommy keeps her mouth quiet while Daddy is disciplining. When the children are in bed is when discussions about discipline takes place. That way the children always sees Mommy on Daddy's side.

7. A real mommy always tells the truth to her child, and won't make up stories to get their child to do something to their advantage.

9. A real mommy believes God about everything, and thus her children see how important the Lord is.

10. A real mommy seeks the truth in everything, and directs her children towards the truth.

12. A real mommy asks forgiveness from her child when she messes up.

13. A real mommy is always the same. In public and in private.

14. A real mommy shows affection to her husband and praises her husband in front of them. And never tares him down.

15. A real mommy wakes up night to put pajamas on a crying cold child that they took off after mommy tucked them in.

16. A real mommy trusts the Lord to work in their child's life

17. A real mommy always does whats best for their child, even if it is an inconvenience to them.

18. A real mommy relaxes and tries not to worry when their husband tells her too.

19. A real mommy needs to trust Jesus as her Saviour

20. A real mommy doesn't fuss over a chore that isn't perfectly done, but was done heartily

21. A real mommy cuddles and hugs her children

22. A real mommy acts silly and jumps up and down and sings at the top of her lungs

23. A real mommy provokes her child to think and ask questions about things

24. A real mommy plays "pretend" Suppernanny with her children

25. A real mommy tries to be consistent in correction

26. A real mommy tries to live in the moment
