7 Ways I Know That I Am Mom Enough

By Goon Squad Sarah |

“Are you mom enough?” seems to be the question of the week. The Time Magazine cover this week had all us all listing the ways we aren’t good enough in our minds.

Well this Mother’s Day I will tell you that you are mom enough and so am I.

Let me count the ways.

7 Ways I Know That I Am Mom Enough

I took three 8 year old girls out for a nice dinner and missed the first half of Game 7

Yes, instead of watching my beloved Washington Capitals let the Rangers take them out of the series I sat with three incredibly loud 2nd graders and listened to them complain that they didn't like their $9 hamburgers. It was my daughter's birthday and totally worth it.

  3. Michelle Homrighouse says:

    Just what I needed! Thanks! :-) Happy Mother’s Day!

  4. Susan says:

    wait – you think letting your kids sleep in bed with you when they are sick, and taking them out for their birthday makes you a good mom?! haha seems like pretty basic things to me. i guess in that case all moms are “mom enough”

  5. Lisa says:

    LOL! Good for you! I always see blogs about women whimpering and complaining about not feeling “mom enough” and questioning everyone elses momliness; it always bugs me. I think it is silly. Susan: sometimes it is the simple things that make one a good parent who is there for their kid(s), even if they sound “basic” to you. And no, not all parents do these “basic” things. Why do people think that moms and dads need to wear a cape and compete with eachother? Get over it.

    Thanks, Lisa.

    It is so easy to feel bad about what we are doing wrong. Sometimes I think we just need to take some time to focus on the things we are doing right.

    I think Dad should have taken the 8 year olds to dinner.
