Good Moms V. Great Moms

Good moms expect straight As. Great moms understand that nobody is perfect.

Good moms make healthy, balanced meals. Great moms make chocolate chip pancakes for dinner sometimes.

Good moms discipline their children. Great moms show mercy.

Good moms are happy and positive. Great moms are sad sometimes because life isn't always happy and positive.

Good moms teach their children to read. Great moms keep reading to their children, even after they know how.

Good moms take their kids to the park. Great moms get off the bench and play at the park.

Good moms teach their kids how to take care of themselves--to grow up. Great moms take their big kids in their arms and rock them and let them be a baby sometimes.
