For today, well it's Thursday which means it is is Proud Mommy Moment (#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. 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.
My kids are all so different. Lucas is by far the biggest on his team but that doesn't mean he is out there scoring the goals. In fact, he would rather be hanging in the back on defense where he can analyze each play and move he makes.
Alex is also the biggest on her team and she likes to be right in it. Staying right with the ball, possibly plowing some of the girls over.... she is focused.
Well unless it is a practice, and she has found a leaf which she will proceed to tear to pieces, while running around kicking the ball. She also likes to tie knots into long pieces of grass, while running around and kicking the ball. And if it isn't her turn to participate in a certain drill she likes to let everyone know how exhausted she is by flopping onto the ground and then making not one, but three other girls try and pick her up while they all giggle uncontrollably.
The poor coach wasn't sure what to do, after all Alex is one of the best players. But this "proud" mama, she knew exactly what to do.
Threats whispered in the ear at the exact precise moment can go a long way.
What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?
