Strengths... I can multi-task pretty well! hehe. Sometimes I surprise myself at how much I can accomplish with both girls with me when I put my mind into it. I am also pretty patient most of the time and I have both girls on excellent schedules - they nap well & sleep through the night well (in the same room!). My kids are also pretty well behaved in public (for their age).

Weaknesses... I sometimes yell & lose my temper if they give me non-stop tantrums... I try to be patient but on the occasional time I just lose it and yell at them and feel like I cannot take it anymore; tantrums are really my weakest point, especially days when it's one after another.

Strengths - managing chaos? LOL

Weaknesses - I definitely yell too much. Every day I resolve to get through the whole day without yelling, and almost every day I fail.

Strengths - I've got a good plan for raising kids in place, I've got lots of goals and for the most part know how to execute them.

Weaknesses - Patience and prayer in actually executing the plan!

I had to think about this before answering... My hubby tells me I always seem to know what to do with kiddo situations, and he says I am great have having the right mommy answer.

What is your biggest weakness? Right now I feel stretched and torn, but I am told that is normal. I need 10 arms and a few cloned doubles to get everything done.

Well, my biggest weakness is easy - I am impatient and prideful!!
I had to think about my strengths. I guess that I am passionate about being a good wife and mother. I will work hard to give my kids lots of new and fun experiences. My mom spent so much time cooking and keeping the house spotless that we didn't get to do many things.
