If you have read my blog for a while you know that my daughter Alex often makes my Proud Mommy Moments, but it often isn't for bragging purposes. Well today that changes. Three days a week I join a lot of ladies at church for a butt kicking workout. The kids run around the gym and play while the moms work up a good sweat.
Overall the kids do great and there aren't too many problems- but there is one big temptation- the stage. What little kid doesn't want to go up and dance on a stage? The trouble is with lots of little kids accidents happen. After one little girl fell of the stage one week I told Alex she was absolutely not allowed to go on the stage.
On Monday, the kids were playing and running around as usual. Soon one of the little boys pushed a chair over and climbed up onto the stage, soon another and another joined including Alex's best friend. Alex stood at the base of the stage looking up.
"Alex" I simply called. She looked at me and then looked back at her friends. I continued grunting through the situps keeping my eyes on her. Several minutes passed. Eventually some of the moms came and got their kids down. Alex- she was still on the floor where she remained the whole time.
I was very proud and made sure to talk with her on the way home about how proud I was, especially when all of the other kids were doing it. Now let's just hope she continues to make me proud like this.
My awesome girl
