    I loved this article!!!!! You Rock Liz 🙂

    I did this challenge too and I had similar answer especially the letting them make a mess even though I hate it 🙂

    Liz, I think you do Rock parenting! You can never go wrong with LOVE, LOVE , LOVE. Building your family around love is everything!
    You Rock! So rock on mama 😁❤️

  4. Aw, thanks for the shout out. You definitely are rocking motherhood! I wish I could do the outside one every day…better about it in the summer but…you’re an awesome mama! I might have to copy your routine thing, I’ve been trying the wingin’ it thing and I’m not sure it’s working so well. <3

    • I’m a person who likes to plan and know what to expect. When I try to “wing it” I’m more stressed than when I plan ahead and have a schedule. If anything I am sometimes too inflexible about the schedule, but it works for us. I know outside can be hard. I’m in Oregon so rain, rain, rain (I think you’re in the Pacific NW too, right?) I can’t wait for summer!!!

    • I used to have a home daycare so I found creating a schedule was the only way to get everyone down for a nap at the same time. I needed the break, so I made it a priority. I love being able to plan my day around a set schedule:)

    • I love the reading aloud part of our day. I have always been a big reader and I want my girls to love books as much as I do! That’s one reason I love your website to much:)

  5. I try to say yes as much as possible too. I’m not always great about it, but I really do try. You have a great list here and it sounds like you are an awesome mama!

  6. WAY TO BE!!!!!
    my kids think I’m THE WORST when I make them unplug and go outside. haha! “son go ride your bike” and I get huffs and puffs as a response! Whatever though, they’ll thank me later for it.
    i lOOOOVE how you said “saying sorry”. As a parent we feel like we need to the “authority figures” and we need to be all high and mighty and we can’t mess up in front of our kids or else they won’t respect us. But that’s totally not the case. letting your kids see your mess ups, seeing you get vulnerable then assess and fix the situation will help them build respect for you instead of parents just demanding it!
    I’m rocking motherhood at the moment because my two boys have pink eye and i don’t have it! yay! #donttouchme

  7. Awesome post! It’s great to take a step back and think about how we are rocking as moms! Your list looks it could be mine, especially the going outside part! I completely agree and loved reading 🙂

  8. Love these, especially the saying sorry when you make mistakes! That is so important, I think, to honoring the dignity of our children as people and establishing a safe space for our children to confess when they mess up, as well! You are doing an awesome job, mama!

  9. I’ve been loving reading these rocking motherhood posts lately! I really love the ways you’re doing it too! Keep on rockin’ momma!

  10. Saying sorry is so important. We are not perfect and moms have such an influence in how kids’ view their own imperfection towards others. No one likes a person who can never admit when they are wrong. Also fresh air is amazing, even if it’s a bit hard to accomplish on some days. And we make lots of creative messes around here. 🙂

  11. You are definitely rocking motherhood! I hope that I can be as confident in my parenting when a) my son gets older, and b) I have more than one child =)

  12. I can totally relate #3. I hate myself so much sometimes for raising my voice at my little boy or being rude to him. I often cry when I say sorry to him haha.
