14 Kids on the Surprising Things They Say Makes a Great Mom

Wendy Robinson | Sep 2, 2016 Being a Mom

There are days when I feel certain that I am killing it at the mom game. There is playing and snuggles and two kids who act like little beams of sunshine. But then there are days ... hoo boy, there are days. Days when my patience is short and the whining is loud and I can't help but wonder if I am screwing this all up. 

It can be hard to know what makes a good mom. It seems like the bar is always moving, and goodness knows that there are about a million different self-appointed parenting experts on the Internet who would be glad to tell me that I'm doing it all wrong. 

So, I decided to ask an expert what makes a good mom. A 4-year-old expert, who happens to live in my house. According to Evelyn, a good mom is someone who "loves me so much! And makes me toast!"

Love and toast -- I can handle that! And even though I like Evelyn's standard, I decided I better let a few other kid experts weigh in on what makes a good mom. I think you'll find the answers amusing, enlightening, and maybe even inspiring.
