I really like the resolve to set positive boundaries and limits. So important, and so hard to do!
Thanks Kelly…. 🙂
I love all of your resolutions but one. I don’t believe in being a friend and not a parent. I will always be my children’s parent first and friend second. Kids need us to lead them and raise them up to be the wonderful and successful adults they should be. I believe that all of your other resolutions are absolutely in line with that but I think there is a danger in consciously trying to be their friend first. I think you are definitely being the best momma for your child though. Some great goals on this list.
As you rightly said, I will be cautious of being a friend to my son …. Thank you …. 🙂
I was going to comment the same thing. I think it’s important that a parent be a parent, not a friend. Otherwise, I think it’s a beautiful set of resolutions.
I agree with you, Esrella. But kids of nowadays need friendly affection rather than parental control. My son likes me as his friend but loves me as mother … 🙂
What a wonderful reminder! I need to hear this from time to time as I’m raising my daughter. Thanks for sharing!
Welcome Karin … 🙂
Beautiful resolutions. I love that you resolved to say “no” when needed. We need more parents doing that these days!
Thanks Tara … 🙂
To be a mother is the biggest blessing of all. You are a gentle, wise soul… and all the time and effort in raising your wonderful son will be beautiful memories for eternity! Happy Mother’s Day, every day of the year!
Thank you so much, Margo …. 🙂
Good luck with your resolutions!! I imagine finding time to do and remember them all will be tough, but I have faith in you!
Thanks Jessica for having hope on me …. 🙂
I like the “I resolve to set positive boundaries and limits”. So important, and so hard to do!
Yes, you are correct Kelly … But I love to do … 🙂
Being a mother is the hardest, but most rewarding job! I love your resolutions and wish you all the best in working toward those goals! Your son is very lucky to have you!
Thank you so much Jamie … 🙂
I have many of the same resolutions! Meeting each of them every day can be a challenge, but it’s one I’m willing to try!
Best wishes to you … 🙂
Now that’s a mouthful. Well done in being this awesome mother. It means a lot to all of us humans. Thank you
Welcome Brian … 🙂
Aww… this is so sweet. My mommy resolutions for my kids are pretty much the same. I want my kids to grow up confident and know that they are well loved!
Thanks Elizabeth for your kind words … 🙂
Kids are such fabulous additions to our lives. Good luck and best wishes 🙂
Thank you so much … 🙂
Thank you for sharing this. It was beautiful! It reminded me of something my mother would write to me.
Thanks Kristin for your kindness …. 🙂
I think being a mother is the most rewarding yet heart breaking role ever – I love my sons to life and now that they are 19 and 23, I hope the foundation I laid will carry them through the toughest of times.
Thanks Blake and my best wishes to your sons …. 🙂
Saying No when needed can be so difficult but so important. Good luck with your resolutions!
Thank you so much … 🙂
You’re setting a beautiful example of intentional mothering with these meaningful resolutions.
Thanks Angela …. 🙂
Great list of resolutions. And like S Marie, agree with all but the one. Kids need us to be their parent, not their friend when they are children. And when you do so, then when they are adults, the relationship can change and you can be friends.
Thank you so much … 🙂
I too strive to be and do these things for my three boys… except to be their friend and not their parent. I am the ONLY person in the world who can be mom. Nobody else in all of creation can be that to my boys. There are many, many people out there to play the role of friend. I will always be the parent until they are old enough to choose me to be their friend. Hopefully I will have done such a good job at being a parent and directing, teaching, encouraging, loving, forgiving, etc. through the years, that they will all choose me as a friend in the end!
Happy to hear about you, Beth…..
Thanks for sharing your beautiful resolutions with us. Motherhood is definitely a journey that reveals our greatest strengths and weaknesses. Blessings on your journey.
Thanks Sarah for your kind words …. 🙂
Thank you for all this great resolutions. It’s all about love, inspirational.
Thanks Nelly … 🙂
Great post… I do believe in being there friend, but being a parent first is most important… and being a friend will naturally come as years pass with respect and trust making a friendship last forever
Thank you so much. We are parents by default but being a friend is our choice, I hope …. 🙂
What a sweet resolution for you to write to your son. You are a great example for a wonderful mother!
Thank you so much for your positive words…. 🙂
i love this! i’m over here tearing up!!!
i think this is such a great idea to do… i think i’ll do this next year as well.
Thank you so much. My wishes to you …. 🙂
I love the last one. It resonates so much as I truly experience the world all over again through my kids eyes!
Thanks Camesha. Parenting is God’s gift to us … 🙂

This is a sweet post. I really like, “I resolve to set positive boundaries and limits.”
Thanks Gina … 🙂
This is a great idea, so intentional to consider what to do to make a difference in the lives of our children rather than keep going with the drudgery. Thank you for this!
Thanks Helen … 🙂
Beautifully written! Best of wishes as you adventure through these intentions.
Thanks a lot … 🙂
What a beautiful way to show love for your child.
Thanks LizZ ….. 🙂
Aww this is so incredibly sweet!
Thanks Macy …. 🙂
Wow! I love this! So sweet 🙂
Thanks Cole …. 🙂
This is what struck me most :”I resolve to be your role model.” As a parent and mom, our kids get their first experience of community with us and our children look up to us as parents. This leaves me with a question, is the image or example I am imparting to my daughter as good as it should be? I am not perfect but I am a work in progress…
I definitely need to adopt some of these resolutions myself! Like spending quality time without excuses, saying no and meaning it, having fun with my children. I get so caught up in the to-do’s of each day, I end up putting off the thing that matters most: connecting meaningfully with my children, looking them in the eye, enjoying them.
My wishes to you, Aimee …. 🙂
Your son is blessed because you have put so much intentionality into the mother you want to be. May we all strive to do the same and to remind ourselves of our goals, especially in the times when it is not easy.
Thanks Stephanie ….. 🙂
This is a beautiful list! Maybe you meant to say ” I hope to be not just a parent, but a friend as well.” That’s how my mother has always been to me. My mom and my best friend at the same time! Even through the mother-daughter squabbles. . . Blessings to you!
Thanks a lot … 🙂
Sweet resolutions! I like the one about being available. So many times I find myself doing nothing of importance on my phone and then realize that I have missed those moments where I should have been available. I am going to start having an hour or two each day where I put the phone away and focus on my boys and my husband.
Thanks Rebekah …. 🙂
Great resolutions. I understand the heart of a mother through this post 🙂 I feel, being more patient with kids is difficult sometimes.
Thanks Ramya ….. 🙂
