Some days as a parent can be pretty discouraging, but every once in awhile I stop and give myself a little pat on the back for all the things I’m actually doing right.
Parents – and moms in particular – are pretty amazing. The job you do is an incredibly important one and even though you screw up sometimes, you have an amazing laundry list of “mommy skills” that are pretty impressive.
Check out a few of my “mommy skills” and share your own below – let’s celebrate our awesome mommy skills today!

What “mommy skills” have you mastered?
