Proud Mommy Moments: Reading

**If you are looking for the Power of Mom's Premium Retreat Giveaway-click here.**

It's Thursday! Which this week for us is like Friday as the kids have no school tomorrow- yes they just went back and already have a four day weekend! Anyway, focus Emily, Proud Mommy Moments is a weekly meme hosted by Kmama and myself. It is your chance to brag about your kids, tell us the things they did and/or tell us about those things that make you so so "proud"-i.e. totally embarrassed- but hey at least it makes for good blogging material. Grab the button, link up and play along.


This week's proud mommy moment goes all the way back to Christmas- well before Christmas. One evening Eric took all three kids out shopping-yes he deserves some kind of medal for that. They were going to buy me and present.

They got home wrapped the presents and Lucas was writing on the present who it was for.

"To Mom, From Lucas and Ryder" it read. Ryder chased after Lucas as he carried it to put it under the tree.

Ryder sat right down by it, "O" he said pointing the letter o in Mom. He then pointed to each letter in mom and then said "Mom"

I was floored! This from a kid who hardly speaks at all.
I was very proud.

Link up! It's fun.

  3. This is one of my FAVORITE stages of all. Hyrum is in this same place--brought his first book home from school yesterday. I'm gonna have to blog about it tomorrow. I'll link up then. Don't you wish you could go back to that place where you learned to read? It must be the most exciting feeling.

  8. That is SUPER AWESOME. WoW! I remember how excited I was when Punky started sounding out words (though it feels like forever ago now).

    So cool.

    I was just thinking about joining in on Proud Mommy Moments yesterday. I have a bunch I'd like to share. Maybe next week...

  11. What?! That is crazy. I feel like I should be letting my daughter watch more Seasame Street (wink).

    I'm teasing.

    But seriously, that's amazing.
