The lovely Emily who blogs over at Twin Mummy and Daddy tagged me in this rather sweet tag about what I think makes me a good Mum. More often than not I convince myself that I'm a shit Mum and that I'm rubbish at all things motherhood so this is a kick up the bum to remind me that I am a good Mum and I am totally rocking motherhood.....whoop!

I admit that when I started to think about this post my fingers hovered about the keyboard and I paused for a second wondering what am I good at when it come to motherhood? We are all so self critical it's really hard to suddenly start thinking about bigging myself up! With that being said, here's why I am rocking motherhood. 1. You want a hug....? Well I'll squeeze you so hard like I'll never let go. I'm good at cuddles, whether it's a comforting cuddle, a loving cuddle or just because I'm a Mum cuddle. I totally rock at cuddles. 2. I would go to the ends of the earth for my kids. Yes they annoy me, yes I want to hide in a cupboard on my own sometimes and yes at times I wonder why I had kids. No matter what I would give up my life for theirs if I had to. I'm always amazed that I grew them and birthed them and am now nurturing them and I'm so thankful for everyday that I'm their Mummy. 3. I work hard (as does my husband) to make sure we can give them the best life we can. I want to give them memories to cherish forever and things that they'll talk about with their friends and their children one day and I'm always thinking of ways we can do this, whether it's days out, holidays or just simply going for a walk. 4. I'm the person I am because of them. My drive in life is from my kids, they've changed me for the better. I have an aim in life.
5. I feed, water and bathe them. The simplest things in life and I'm fortunate enough to be able to provide these for them. 6. I let them have treats. Hey we are all individuals and if I decide I want to give my kids sweets or treats now and again that's my choice. My rules, my decisions, my motherhood. 7. I'm dedicated. Yes it's nice to have time away from the kids occasionally but I can't tell you how much I miss them when I'm away, even if just for the night. So I dedicate my life to them because I chose to be a Mum.
8. I will encourage them. If I see that they are interested in something or particularly good at a certain thing I'll encourage them to pursue it. I'll never tell them what path to take but I'll do my damn hardest to see them on the best route. 9. This is much harder that it appears! I'm fiercely protective. I know every mother is but it seems the older they get the more protective I get. 10. Because I just am! We are all rocking motherhood in our own way and I like to think I'm doing ok. So this is why I'm rocking motherhood. Not the easiest tag, quite hard to think of 10 reasons, it shouldn't be but I found it quite difficult. So if you fancy taking part then please do, I would love to know your thoughts. I tag anyone who fancies joining in, all I ask is you tag me in the blog post and tweet me so I can read your answers!! So who else is rocking motherhood?
