Proud Mommy Moments: "The Rules"

It's Thursday today- did you realize that? Monday holidays totally throw me off. But yes, it is Thursday so it is time for PMM!

If you don't know what PMM are-you can read all about them here. Please remember to grab the button for your post and link up with the link to your PMM post not just your blog in general. Thanks!!

And definitely visit my cohost Kmama of the Daily Dribbles.

When I was trying to figure out my PMM for this week- I thought about writing about the pride I felt when my kids stood with their hands on their hearts and said the entire pledge of allegiance; or the fact that Ryder did not cry at all at the fireworks... but yesterday at lunch, Alex helped me know what was my PMM was this week.

During lunch Lucas and Alex were talking about what they wanted to do after lunch; they had been playing so nicely together all morning while I entertained Ryder and did lots of laundry.

Lucas: "How about we play girl legos" (i.e. play with Alex's set of Legos)
Alex: "We can play with that as long as you obey all my rules."

And what were her rules? Well she went on to tell us:
"Rule #1: Let someone play what you want to play

Rule #2: if you get a person you don't want you just have to keep it

Rule #3: you have to play nice and do what I say

Rule #4: You have to put away a toy before you get a new one out

Rule #6: if any babies, grandmas, aunts or uncles want to play- let them play what you want to play"
And she finished by placing her hand on her hip-sticking it out a bit and stating "And these are my six rules"

Not quite sure what happened to 5. But I couldn't be more proud! After all, I want to raise a bossy Diva- don't you?
