I have 3 children and I've never had anyone take care of them (other than their daddy) a day in their lives. Our families live out of state so we've never had any outside help. I pride myself on having been able to raise them and guide them on our own.

My son has had severe asthma since he was a toddler. We lost count years ago how many times we've been to the emergency room, and we've lost count on the hospital stays. Despite my fears, I've tried to maintain calm, as it's important to keep him calm during an attack.

I’m not techincally a mom, but I work with developmentally disabled individuals and I show them as much patience and caring as I can every day!

I am sure each mother has her own unique journey filled with both treasures and trials....I look back to when my girls were just teens and I looked for them, unsure if I could do it on my own..getting them through university, praying they continued to walk the talk, of doing what was right and good...it involved physical separation, sometimes doing 'without' and often just trusting when things appeared bleak...ensuring I was in a job all the time so that bills were met, social security or aid was an unheard thing in the lands where we lived, I worked...and most important to be there for my girls all the time, no matter what...I look back and say thank God to see that it had been possible to provide them with roots to build a strong sense of confidence and security and with wings to venture out on their own and be successful in their own right. I am blessed that I can see this in my lifetime

So far the biggest challenge I've faced as a mom was when my daughter was born. Since we don't have family in the area, we didn't know who would care for her, if both my husband & I worked. But, after thousands of dollars of hospital bills (I had a very difficult pregnancy) on top of college loans, we were not sure that we could afford to live on one income. However, we made the decision that I would be a stay at home mom, no matter how financially difficult it would be. So, over the last two years, I've had to figure out unique ways to supplement our income (i.e. mystery shopping, etc) that I could do, even when my husband was traveling. The Lord has definitely provided along the way, and our daughter has never starved or been watched by anyone besides my husband & I. ;)

And, I've been blessed to be there for every milestone in my daughter's life. My most memorable moment was having her spontaneously give me a kiss and say "I love you" for the first time! It made the sleepless nights worth it. :)

In Sept. 2006, I retired from a 30 yr career. I was looking to a life of leisure. My daughters were grown, married and a families of their own. In early Oct my youngest called, in hysteria, her 2 yr old was in the emergency room having a grand mal seizure. These seizures continued to occur daily and I left my leisure life and move 3000 miles to help. My daughter not only had this child but 4 others under 8. This little boy needed to have hands on, all day and night. And the stress on the family was tremendous. My daughter, now, had one more adult to relive her. We followed a regimen of meds, nutritional therapy, and chiropractic medicine and 4 yrs later he is seizure free and I moved out to live my life of leisure.
2 months later, this same daughter announced she was having #6. This yet to be born baby girl has a heart arrhythmia and suspicious amniotic fluid. We are all holding our breath until she is born. (Any day now) If this little girl needs more care then my daughter can handle, (along with 5 other kids), I will again leave my life of leisure.
Why? Because that’s what Mom’s do.

oh boy, this is an emotional question for me. I leaned to overcome unique challenges on 10/9/09...the day after my middle son's 12 birthday and the day before my oldest son's 14th birthday when I received a phone call from my Mom that my Dad was in an electrical explosion at work. We were 1st told his 3rd degree burns were 66% of his body (but thankfully after everything was said and done it was only 44%). I/we as a family have learned to overcome alot with trying to tell my our children how something so terrible could happen to someone they look up to. My father spent 3 1/2 months in the burn unit (including Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc) it was hard to keep it together for both my kids and my Mom...which was my uniquest challenge.

Many people take for granted the ability to be a mother, thus neglecting their children as the blessings they are; while so many hard working- magical moms go unrecognized. Being a mother is the hardest job any woman will ever have, and the highest paying. There is not one day that shouldn’t be cherished and celebrated for the milestone it is! I have tried for years now for a child of my own, and in my journey have realized the role of a mother is not just for those with children of their own body, but those who love and nurture children of all blood. While I may not qualify to be nominated, I am ‘nana’ to 2 wonderful children who light up my day every chance they get!

Potty training! We are currently potty training and what a challenge it is! We've been doing it for 3 days and I've picked up quite alot of accidents, but I'm trying to stay positive and encourage our son to "go" on the potty. Something fantastic is that he's not having accidents at night at all so that's a start! Jenprincess88 at yahoo dot com

The biggest challenge that I've overcome in being a mom is just the day to day struggle of making it financially in terms of keeping a roof over our head, a car to get to work, food on the table and the utilities paid. My husband has a chronic disease that affects is day to day abilities to work and function, so it leaves a lot more responsibility on me to be the provider financially as well as mom to two young boys ages 7 and 3. My youngest was born with a rare brain disorder and so he has a lot of medical and therapy appointments and various services and supports that need to be arranged, so that also keeps me very busy and presents challenges in trying to balance work and my child's needs. I am fortunate in that I have worked in the Social Services field for many years and have a lot of experience specifically working with people with developmental disabilities. This experience has benefited my son in terms of me understanding how the medical system works and the other agencies and organizations that provide some services for my son. This means that I've been able to be a very effective and strong advocate for my son which I will never stop doing this for him. He has given me such a strong sense of what kind of life and opportunites people with developmental disabilities should have. Despite his challenges, I want him to have the best life that he is capable of having.

For the past two years I have picked up other children along with my two who were out for summer school break and have taken them to our university were they can swim as long as they want for $3.00 in an olympic pool. All of their parents have full time jobs and I felt so sorry for the children couped up in the house till their parents came home. Needless to say it is like a suana in the pool area so sitting there is very uncomfortable to me because I am unable to swim due to a fractured hip. I would also pick up other children on Tuesdays and Thursdays who wanted to join the chess club at my son's school but had no one to take them before 8:00am on those days.

Main Entry - I have gone beyond the call of duty by agreeing to take care of my 85 year old auntie after my uncle passed 2 years ago. Why you might ask? Our daughter moved out on her own 4 years ago so we thought we were done & could enjoy ourselves but now we have taken on a new responsibility and that is taking care of my auntie.

My husband is a pastor and I work full-time so I never feel like I have enough time to devote to my family, so my husband and I are always finding ways to spend time together doing stuff as a family. Our kids come with us to all our church stuff and have really become a part of our ministry because others see how integrated church is in our lives because it's such a crucial part of who we are.

I went beyond just getting my children into this world. I was sick the whole time I was pregnant. I swell up like a balloon from fluid retention. I suffer from gestational diabetes. My body just wasn't made for bearing children.
And having made so much effort bringing them into the world, I don't let any one else take care of them. No day care, and babysitters have been only Grandma & Grandpa on very rare occasions. There has only been 3 times I've missed reading the bedtime stories & tucking them into bed, and each of those involved a hospital visit.

Oh boy, how have I over come challenges as a Mom? Oi. Kelsie, my oldest daughter, I share physical custody with her Dad. She is with him for a week followed by a week with me. It is tough. But through that, she still gets quality time with lil sis Aubrey and neither girl has ever been in daycare- a big thing with my constant health issues.

Not only do I have a full time job of being a mother which is very rewarding and demanding at the same time, I know went beyond my call of duty and am a caretaker to someon that has cared for me all of her life, my mom! She has always been there for me while I was working and raising my child as a single parent and if it weren't for her, I would have been lost, Now she has been diagnosed with such a terrible disease , and she needs my help, and being that I worked in the healthcare system for many years, it is my duty not only as her daughter, but as her friend to give her the best care possible. I try to make her feel as special as possible, and realize that it's not her fault that she has this disease. She loves having me do her nails for her each week. It makes her feel special. Without my mom and my best friend, I wouldn't be the kind, caring person that I am today!!! I love my mom!!! I wouldn't have it any other way!!

I have always loved being a mom, it was the one thing I had always wanted since being a little girl. I could not foresee the challenging side of being a mom, only the rewards, the sweet new-baby smell, the chubby arms around my neck, and the sweet "I love you Mom" words that stayed in my heart as I struggled to raise my 11 children, 10 of whom lived to adult hood. I did not foresee the struggles with learning disabilities, the sometimes unkind words, the life-threatening illnesses when I slept on the floor in a hospital room to be near my child at night. And before I could breathe a sigh of relief that 10 of my children reached adult hood, one son was killed in a car accident the night he was moving to his own place to start college. How did I meet these challenges? Through prayer, lots of it, many, many tears, and the support of friends & family. Some of these I had to basically face alone as the kids' dad died when there were still 5 boys at home, and before that he just didn't know how to be involved in our children's lives. Faith is the answer to it all for me. Being a mom is still every great as I thought it would be!

I truly think that every mom ends up going beyond almost every day! But, my time of working beyond has been during my husband's deployments overseas with the air force. It is so hard to put aside your personal exhaustion and worries and pull yourself together to be a rock for your children. As hard as it is for the service members overseas, it is equally hard for the families left behind and the children left without parents. It was especially hard for me that my children couldn't quite understand why daddy was gone for so long but were old enough to miss him terribly. Thankfully, there are no more deployments ahead for us, but I will never forget that there are so many families right now in that situation with moms working way beyond!

To me, going beyond as a mom means realizing you aren't going to be perfect all the time, accepting that fact, and trying to do the most important things well for your children.

My biggest challenge that required me to go above and beyond was my middle daughter being dyslexic. I realized she would be overlooked in the schools, since they wait until a child is two years behind before intervening, which is 2 wasted years. So I brought her home and spent 3 years doing every reading intervention I could find. After a lot of hard work on her part and lots of frustration on my part she finally became a fluent reader at 11. She still has some issues and can't spell at all, but she is an honor roll student in 8th grade now. Just this weekend I had to scold her for reading a book when she was supposed to be doing chores. I made her put the book down and do her chores, but secretly I was glad to see her so involved in a book.

While I raised my 2 children I faced challenges every day just as all mothers all over the world do each day. Looking back I'm surprised that while raising my 2 active children, I was able to do so many things, from taking nieces and nephews into our home while their moms were delivering a new sibling for them or their parents became ill, taking care of my parents through illnesses, helping my in-laws whenever they were recuperating or slowing down due to advancing age, etc. I guess my "problem" was that I never could say no to anyone. But, I would do it all again because I truly love my huge family and I believe that the good Lord never gives you more than you can handle.

Oh this feels like bragging.. I don't care for it. How about I give my testimony instead? That's better ;D Two falls ago my husband and I suffered a miscarriage. By the grace of God he led us to what is now our Church home. A year later after one attempt, Gods grace at work for ya ;D, I became pregnant. It was by no means easy. I was violently ill for three months. After which we found out that I have gestational diabetes and a partially separated placenta. I spent the next six months on partial bed rest. Which is how I came to love blogging and giveaways! God gave me a wonderful healthy baby boy on January 27th of this year. Through trial and tribulation we were blessed what we waited ten years to receive. God is good and he is kind. That is my testimony and I am sticking to it, hehe

Overcoming challenges as a mother of 5 is leaning on the Lord and my husband. I know when to put myself in a "timeout".

I also enjoy my children. So many parents forget to enjoy them when they are growing up...I probably enjoy them more now than I did when I was younger.
