A big thanks to Mountain Mom and Tots for nominating me for  their Rockin’ Motherhood post.

To be honest I was a little embarrassed to participate in this series and write out a list of ways that I rock motherhood BUT then  I remembered my sport psychology training.  When I played rugby we would have to participate in sessions that required us to  engage in positive goal setting   and visualization. This psychological training helped us perform on the field. So  I am taking this as my mom psychology training and I am going list the ways that I rock motherhood .

I want to encourage you to write out a list of 10 ways that you  rock motherhood at home.   Even if you don’t 100% believe it write it out anyways.  These types of practices can help us improve our own self worth. We moms can be so hard on ourselves so give yourself a break and remember how awesome you are!

Before I get started on the ways that I rock motherhood I want to give you two   tips on how you should write out the ways that you rock motherhood.


  1. Be positive.  Write out how you rock motherhood in a positive way. For example “I get my kids outside everyday” instead of “I don’t keep my kids indoors or  I usually get my kids outside.”
  2. Be specific.  Write out something that you specifically do that makes you rock motherhood.  “I make sure my kids are fed everyday” instead of “I  take care of my kids”.

 How I Rock Motherhood!

  1. I take my kids outside to play everyday
  2. I take time for myself  guilt free
  3. I tell them I love them everyday no matter how they acted
  4. I tell them stories on long car rides and while out hiking
  5. I make healthy meals but balance with treats on occasion
  6. I take the girls to church every week and pray with them everyday
  7. I read to the girls everyday
  8. I spend a lot of time compromising and never think of parenting as a battle to win
  9. I genuinely enjoy spending time with  my kids
  10. I take my kids out  on adventures and push our family to get outside!
