    I think you were the only one upset by it. It really wasn't serious at all.
    Thanks for you concern, I was not only that thread I was referring to and not even forums in general. Just how Im feeling lately. Just trying to be positive, not trying to offend or hurt anyone

    it's obvious you're not trying to offend anyone

    I loved your story. It is often to easy to get caught up in the negativity of life and forget the positive, heart melting moments.

    I'm currently at work after a looooong night shift. I can't wait to get home, as I know the two younger kids will be waiting at the door, eager to talk to me at a million miles a minute

    Hi Moosey,


    Great idea for a post! I felt like a good mum yesterday when I took my 3 boys aged 5, 3 and 8 months to the shops to do a few errands and it wasn't a nightmare. They did as they were told, didn't run off, the older two didn't fight or start wrestling on the ground, the baby was happy in his pram and I didn't yell - not once!

    I always get anxious when we all have to go out for an extended period to do things that are 'boring' for kids but absolutely essential for the smooth running of the family - it's usually a recipe for ratty boys and a frazzled mum, but not yesterday. I got back to our car and strapped the boys in their seats and felt like a mummy that was coping ...not a feeling I get very often!

    It's nice to focus on positives rather than negatives, although I could probably give you another 10 stories from just this week when I felt like a terrible mum!!! Oh well, we're all just trying to do our best I guess.

    I love the idea for this thread.
    It's not often enough us mum's sit back and say get I am a good mum.
    I had a few moments lately when I could really have used a good mum moment.

    Op your rain story is very familiar from when DS was about 1. They are so cute and funny sometimes it just makes the world bearable.

    This is an awesome thread.

    My super mum moment was last night we were all out at dinner (14 of us) and my 16mo boy sat in a high chair the whole time eating!!! Not getting cranky, and actually eating the food not throwing it!!! I was do proud of him

    I am sure other mums feel this way - I am always concerned that my ds isn't up to date with his development. I know every child is different and does things in their own time, but I always still wonder.....
    Well my ds is 10 months old, and he crawled over the our lounge, pulled him self up, gave me a HUGE smile, and ducked down to hide from me! It just made me realise that I must be doing something right, as he is developing just fine and is always cheeky and full of smiles!

    Yep, I feel like this all the time my DS hasn't rolled yet so I worry all the time. It's nice to know it just happens when they are ready!!

    people judge me all the time because i refuse to smack my children. i think that it is one of my biggest achievements as a mother, not physically disciplining my children.

    I get that sometimes to. Smacking is not something I can do. But I get told by so many saying a good smack would sort him out.
    He doesn't need it or understand it.
    Just stop treating him like a 2 yr old.
