Monday Mommy Moments: I love being a Mom!

Here is my monday mommy moment for today: Making memories/ being a mom

We started homeschooling from birth and have not stopped since then. Our oldest son is now four years old, and we have so much to look back on! We pray when they all grow up they will have the fondest memories of being with their parents and enjoying getting an education.  I went through my phone the other day and saw some beautiful pictures, I must have somehow forgotten about them, of the boys at the garden and them lovingly touching my face. I felt so good inside seeing the pictures and it really made me think: this is why we do it

This is why we spend our nights making projects, coming up with fun ideas, and this is why we take time to be our child’s first teacher. We are making a positive impact and awesome memories for our children. It is a blessing that we can share what we love and who we love with the world.

It is more important that our children feel the love that we put into everything we do for them. I imagine them growing up and telling their children their wonderful childhood memories. I pray they in turn do similar with their own children. I love being a mom, it is such a rewarding and beautiful station in life. I am so blessed I get to experience this and alhamdulilah Allah (God) is Most Kind to me for entrusting me with the lives of such beautiful children.

So I ask you, what memories are making? Are you making a positive impact in your child’s life? Don’t you just love being a mom!

Monday Mommy Moments: Thank You!

I posted on twitter the other day about feeling like I am alone in the forest, and talking to myself some days. That’s how I feel when it comes to what I share on the blog, facebook, and twitter. My friend reminded me to keep the focus  and remember the intention. That was some great advice.

My intent from the start has been to share our journey with others and our love of homeschooling our children. The children are the most important reason why I keep this up. They benefit from it and we are closer in our relationship. My son said to me the other day “Ummi, thank you for school.”

It really touched my heart. How powerful and meaningful a thank you can be. He get’s it, he appreciates it and I am not alone in the forest but a mom whose children appreciate her. That made me feel good inside.  Even on days where I feel tired and my oldest son ask to play tag, I muster up the energy to run around the house with all three of them because I feel good knowing they feel good.


Alhamdulilah his thank you made my day, my week, my life. From the youngest of us to the oldest, never under estimate the power of showing gratitude and saying thank you

Did you thank someone today?
