Proud Mommy Moments: A Good Boy

It's Thursday!!  It is Proud Mommy Moments (#PMM) time!  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 but hey it makes for great blog material!  Please grab the button for your post and visit my co-host Kmama.


Every Thursday!




As a parent you do your best to teach your kids.  I try and teach mine to work hard, to never give up, to be kind to others around them, to serve and to help out among other things.  And as parents I think we get to see their best and worst behavior.  We teach them and then send them out into the world hoping for the best and at times I wish I could be a fly on the wall so I knew how they behaved when I am not around. 

A couple of weeks ago we headed into church and took our seat and waited for the meeting to start.  A sister (not a nun) came up and said:

"I just had to tell you, I subbed for Lucas' primary class* last week and Lucas was the most polite and considerate boy.  When I came into the classroom all of the big chairs were gone and he got right up and said that I could have his chair.  He is a good Christian boy."

My face was beaming throughout the rest of the meeting.   Yes, this was a very proud mommy moment.

What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?

*Primary is what we call the Sunday school classes for kids 3-11.
