Gold star linky: what have you done today that makes you feel proud?

Gold Star Linky
Gold star linky: Pop those champagne corks!

We don’t shout enough about how well we do as parents, we are always beating ourselves up about not doing this, not doing that. Sometimes even the books don’t help. They can make us feel inadequate.

Well you aren’t, you’re all fantastic.

Just think of one thing that you did or your children have done that’s made you proud this month – and then shout about it! VERY LOUD.

Anything will do…you can:

  • Tell us in the comments
  • Link to an old blog post
  • Write a new one just for little old me.

Lets celebrate those successes and get that little gold star!

I made it through half term; simple, that is what has made me feel proud this week. Some people find it a breeze. I didn’t; I was trying to juggle work, being a mum, blogging, and being a domestic goddess. Some of those I am not quite so good at – you can decide which…

What about you? Did you / your child:

  • Finally get around to reading a book; any book?
  • Bake a cake
  • Cut a first tooth
  • Get through the day
  • Start a new job
  • Write an awesome blog post or take a fantastic picture.

You name it; come and collect your gold star for it!

You don’t have to of course, but if you give me a little love by linking back to this post , I’ll share your post with the oodles of KiddyCharts fans on Twitter, there by returning the favour.

Gold Star Linky on the KiddyCharts Blog

The only rule for the linky is:

“If it makes you proud, it makes us proud too.”

So come one, lets celebrate success, instead of berating ourselves for the odd failure. We could all do with a little bit of support, so lets start now. And don’t forget to pop on over and see everyone else’s proud moments too!

Be grateful if you don’t put your website link in to the widget below unless you have a specific blog post that you are linking too. Cheers.

Helen is a mum to two, social media consultant, and website editor; and this site is (we think) the only Social Enterprise parenting magazine! Since giving up being a business analyst when juggling travel, work and kids proved too complicated, she founded KiddyCharts so she could be with her kids, and use those grey cells at the same time. KiddyCharts has reach of over 1.1million across social and the site. The blog works with big family brands (including travel) to help promote their services, as well as offering free resources to parents of kids under 10. It gives 51%+ profits to Reverence for Life, who fund a number of important initiatives in Africa, including bringing running water and basic equipment to a school in Tanzania. Helen has worked as a digital marketing consultant (IDM qualified) with various organisations, including Channel Mum, Truprint, Talk to Mums, and Micro Scooters. She loves to be creative in the brand campaigns she works on. Get in touch TODAY!

I am proud of me! This month I secured 3 new business deals that mean we should finally have enough money not to overdraw every month. And, and, and, I am still managing to feed the children! And not shout more than once a week! Go me!!! ;)
