Proud Mommy Moments: Awards

It's Thursday which means it's time for Proud Mommy Moments! This is your weekly chance to brag about the awesome things your kids, nieces, nephews, etc did and no one will judge because we told you to you to. Or you can do the opposite and tell us about those moments your kids made you so "proud"- i.e. something totally embarrassing. Please grab the button for your post and visit my co-host Kmama.


My husband played sports growing up, I did too but not as seriously as he did. He played basketball since he was young and all through high school. He was even recruited by a couple of small colleges. I always joke that if we had known each other in high school we never would have ended up together- as I was at all the basketball games too but I was playing in the pep band.

Needless to say Eric would love for our kids to do sports- especially the boys.

Lucas played soccer last year and did pretty good. He is playing again this year and the growth he is already showing is awesome; but truly I think he is more interested in building and inventing things than sports.

Alex is also playing this year- this will be her first year. We went and bought all the needed gear and Alex wanted to try on her kleets and shin guards and play right away. Eric took the kids into the backyard to do some drills. Eric was dribbling the ball trying to score and Alex was trying to steal it. She ran right along side trying to get to the ball, she then hip checked Eric, stole the ball and dribbled down and scored!

So I think Eric will get his wish- it might just come through this tough red headed athlete.
What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?

    That's awesome that she was able to steal it from him So funny! So her hip check probably caught him in the knee then, right? LOL

  4. yes, I think my son would rather read and draw than do sports too! That is a fun story. no surprise though, she's seems really good at stuff like that! We should have a fun little soccer game when we are there. Ethan played one year and really liked it. Though he is the complete opposite of aggressive!

  11. this house loves soccer

    and you may not have a collegiate player in your son, but there is no reason to not encourage him to do a sport while supporting his other interest

    I really wish my parents would of added some sport for me, I might of had the mind to stay in better shape
