It's so easy to make a list of all the things I am terrible at (basketball, time management, being a stay at home mom, meal planning) but when someone asks you "what's something you're a pro at?" my mind goes blank.
I mean, I'm good at some things, like making homemade tomato sauce, I'm good at my job and taking care of my family. But if I had to choose one thing that I'm a pro at, wow, that's tough.
It's true that we're our own worst critics, and it's tough to come out and say "I'm fabulous at . . . " But if I had to choose one thing that I'm a pro at, it would be my mother's intuition. Somehow, I can read my kids like an open book. When Booger is sick, my magic mommy cuddles make him feel better instantly, when the baby is crying, I can comfort her like no one else can. Also, I make a mean grilled cheese sandwich in the shape of a Christmas tree (thanks to the help of cookie cutters of course). When Booger has to take his medicine when he's sick, mommy can get him to take it without a meltdown, and it turns out, I'm a potty training slayer.
