Proud Mommy Moments: Saving His Sister

It's Thursday! Are you ready to share your Proud Mommy Moment? This is a weekly meme hosted by Kmama and I were you can tell about those moments that made you truly oh so proud (yes a free pass to brag about how awesome your kids are) or to tell about those "proud" moments- when you want to hang your head in shame and cry- but at least it makes good blogging material right?


So grab the button, link up to your actual post and try to visit at least one other person that linked up- especially my cohost Kmama.

Some call it intuition, some call it a sixth sense, your inner-voice, some call it divine intervention, we believe it to be the guidance of the Holy Ghost. It is those moments when a thought or idea suddenly comes to your mind- a thought to hurry and move something- which may have fallen on a child's head, a thought of a friend that you should give a call, a feeling of peace when everything is crazy.

We teach our children to listen for these promptings as they can help them know when they are making good choices and also help protect and keep them safe.

A week or so ago as I was putting Lucas to bed he randomly said- "I saved Alex today?"
"Huh? What do you mean."
"It was when we were out swinging. I was on the regular swing and she was on the standing swing. And then a little voice whispered to me to get off the swing. I got off and so I was right there when Alex started to fall and I caught her. So I saved her from getting really hurt."

I couldn't be more proud. I told Lucas how happy I was that he listened and that he acted on what he was promoted to do.

It really is so awesome when you realize they really are listening to the things you teach.

What is your PMM this week?
