This month I am so looking forward to this link-up!  I need all of the ideas.  Honestly, this is an area where I need the most growth as a mom.  My primary form of motivation right now is bribery #justbeinghonest

Maybe with the current age of my kids, 2 and 4, they need a little less motivation right now, than they will later in life.  However, as a mom, I want them to be independent, strong and driven to reach their goals.  I think learning there's value in working hard for something may bring you a reward is a great lesson to teach them.  Whether that's working hard all semester to earn good grades, or cleaning your plate at dinner each night to earn dessert, these little life lessons are things that I know my children will learn from me.  

I may be biased, being their mom and all, but with these sweet faces, sometimes it's hard not to just give them what they ask for.  Motherhood is that gentle balance between spoiling your kids and teaching them those life lessons along the way.  

Can't wait for today's link-up to learn some tricks from the amazing moms out there to help motivate these kids!
