Proud Mommy Moments: Clean-Up

It's Thursday! Time for Proud Mommy Moments (#PMM)! 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.
Every Thursday!


So as part of my Ten Things list I showed you this picture (still time to link up with that here)
This definitely makes my Proud Mommy Moments this week. As part of our family economy we all have jobs we are responsible for. For the kids their jobs are their responsibility, they have to do them; but if they do them without whining, complaining or having to be asked a lot of times then they get their point for it which translates into a weekly allowance. But I will tell you more about this tomorrow.

Alex's job is to unload. She can't reach most of the shelves, so her unloading usually is her taking the things out of the dishwasher and stacking them on the counter and then I put it away. So not ideal, but at least she is doing it.

But on this day, Lucas said, "I can help you Alex", ran and jumped up on the counter and she handed him all of the dishes to put away.

Melted this mama's heart.

But my oldest two aren't my only helpers
So yep, proud mama this week.

What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?

  1. Oh my god that video is just the sweetest thing. He sounded like he was giving it his all!
    I'm hoping to teach Isaac quite young the importance of chipping in with the chores :)
    And how good are your two eldest? You really have been blessed with lovely kids :)

  2. Aww! he is just too cute. I loved his little grunts. I had to giggle when he tripped with the bananas. Oops. Sorry about the bruised bananas. ;-)

    I'm so impressed that Alex and Lucas work together so well. We are just starting to implement chores in our house. It's hard, because I'm so used to doing everything in a certain way. Relinquishing control is hard!
