SUPER Mom of the Month! OCTOBER!

It's the beginning of October which can only mean one thing, right?

It's time to honor one beautiful, wonderful SUPER MOM for the entire month!

This month, we've had a nomination from a former honoree, Beki from Wild Child Gone Good (isn't that special!) and here's what she has to say:
"I would like to nominate Bari for super mom of the month! She is training for her 1st half marathon, gets her daughter to gymnastics and volleyball - takes her son to get his allergy shots and is just about at her goal weight! I think she's a super mom!"
Thanks, Beki!
So Bari, guess what? Yes, you're running a half marathon soon, yes you have time to get stuff done (or maybe you don't have it but you sure MAKE IT!), to train, to lose weight, to support others in their fitness and weight-loss endeavors, to have a family and take care of all of their needs as a wonderful, supportive mommy, you truly do DO IT ALL! Your cape is showing!!

And that's why you're this month's SUPER MOM OF THE MONTH!

(That's Bari after running her 10 miler last weekend.) Bari, we honor YOU today for inspiring moms everywhere! Here is your button, wear it loud and proud!

Bari blogs over at Diary of a Shrinking Chick so go on over and give her some love!

Congrats, Bari! You totally deserve the SuperMom badge!

Bacardi Mama said...

Excellent choice! I couldn't agree more.

Beki said...

Yay Bari!!! You are for sure a perfect example of a momma wearing her cape out loud! Love you!

Bari said...

Thank you sooooo much Christie (and Beki for nominating me!)!!!! I don't know what to say! There are definitely times I don't feel very "super" but you both have made me realize I need to let my cape show a little bit more and be proud of what I'm accomplishing. All this sweet-talk is making me more motivated to rock my 12 miler this weekend (even though it's now looking like it will be in 40 degrees and rain-I'm going to need a thermal cape!).

You both also deserve to be called Super Moms, so I'm in very good company :) This really made my day. Thanks again. Love you!
