Running from the Law: My Mommy Report Card

My Mommy Report Card

As the school year closes and we celebrate Mother's Day, I thought it might be time to do a little self-evaluation to see how I'm doing as a mom.  I have to do these at work and (wouldn't you know) I tend to do really well!  However, being a mom is WAY harder than being a lawyer.  There are no hard and fast rules, no wealth of case law, no judge to make decisions for you.  Just us parents, winging it as well as we can.  Some parts of parenting comes naturally, and others...not so much.  We all have our strengths and weaknesses, so I thought I'd share my "Mommy Report Card" with you.  

There's definitely room for improvement. 
How would you grade yourself as a mommy?
What are your best and worst subjects?

  3. I am cracking up at your A for bath time enthusiasm. I saw your post bath picture on IG and I have to say, you get an A++ in that category!

  5. This is so cute. I love this. I'm getting the low grade on meal planning and nutrition. I'm also not going to give myself a good grade in family photos and documenting or worm digging skills. I did do a really good job with my Teacher Appreciation Week gifts though--so there's one thing to be proud of.

  6. I feel like I both always and never cut Aria's nails. All of a sudden they are daggers and didn't I just trim them a few days ago? I'm getting an F for meal time tonight. All the things I thought to make we were missing one ingredient. So, um grilled cheese and cucumbers? Really cute idea though! We all have those strengths and weaknesses.

  7. You get an A+ in my book. Don't be so hard on yourself mama - just look how happy and well adjusted your two beautiful babies are - you're doing great! <3

  9. I love this, so sweet & humorous! Glad your big catching is on point! My vehicle identification is an "A" while my playdoh skills are a big fat "F"!

  11. This is so fun! I love the idea of a mommy report card. You for sure deserver an A+ overall mommy, though!
    Filling this out for myself: A for sure in the snack category. I feel like I'm basically a walking pantry.

  12. This is so cute & some of it doesn't apply to me as a stepmother to two teenage girls but I will say that "anxiety management" would be a "Z"...if that was possible for me. Ha!

  13. Ha ha! That is awesome! I'd get an F in diaper bag preparedness too because although I have one ready and updated in the van I never take it inside anywhere with me. I have a small bag inside my purse with diapers and wipes and that's what I take.

  15. This is awesome! I do this in my head all the time without realizing it. I used to be good at meals and nutrition and now pregnant with #2 I'm failing this subject terribly. Love this!

  16. Love this!! You get an A+ for keeping two kids alive all year though!! ;)
    I'm pretty sure I'm BARELY passing for patience right now (almost three year old + daddy gone on work trips...). I'm a country girl who hates bugs/slimy things, so I plan on staying with an F in that category - extra credit for letting Tyson mess with them all HE wants though.. :)
