Yesterday I Was a Good Mom

I’m feeling pretty chuffed about how today (yesterday) went.

I …

* got Lucas ready for school on time
* worked and finished two little projects
* picked Lucas up from school on time
* took him to the park, where I played and talked with him (fully present) the whole time.
* took him home, read him stories, and got him to stay in his room for an hour for “nap”
* worked some more and finished a chapter
* made homemade apple cinnamon muffins with Lucas (I was fully present); we improved the healthiness of the recipe by adding wheat germ, wheat flour, soy flour, raisins, and walnuts
* helped him count one by one the 121 items in his bag of treasures
* praised Lucas for eating so well at dinner (daddy made one of Lucas’s favorite foods: shrimp stir-fry with broccoli, carrots, and cabbage and he gobbled it down)
* did the dishes; cleaned the table
* gave Lucas his vitamins and Omega-3s
* went to a lecture on parenting the wild (I mean strong-willed) child
* laid out clothes for tomorrow (today)

And my darling hubby …
* worked all day
* came home and made a super yummy dinner
* made Lucas’s lunch for tomorrow
* played with Lucas
* showered him, got him ready, read stories and put him to bed by 7:45pm

    You’re a good mom every day.

    But I know what you mean. 🙂
