Proud Mommy Moments: Words to Regret

It's Thursday!  If you are new around here that 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.

Every Thursday!



"Your kids are so well behaved."

Joy and pride filled my soul.  "Thank you!" I said, looking at my two children closest to me, Ryder in my lap, Alex in the chair next to me both playing an iPad.   Yes, I knew the reason they were both being so good was because they were both totally engrossed but I was going to relinquish in that moment anyway.

We were once again at Lucas' soccer practice and that one statement made it all seem worth it.

The other mom and I then began a nice conversation chatting the rest of practice.
Fast forward one week.  Once again we are at soccer practice.  We made it a few minutes early, meaning Lucas had nothing else to do than bug his sister.

In those few minutes before practice, we had tears, yelling, one smack on the head and several statements of let's just go home (several of which were from me).  As practice got started, things mostly settled down, well if you ignore the "I'm bored I have nothing to do" pleas from Alex.  And then I turned and saw her, the same mom I had talked with last week.

Yea, bet she was taking back that statement today.

What is your Proud Mommy Moment this week?

  2. Sometimes it seems like it's 'one step forward, one step back' with kids!

  6. Not my kids. They perfect. Not loud. They are always obedient too. Just like in the poem! ;) Aren't you glad kids are all the same?

  7. Haha! No one's perfect all the time, Emmy! Be happy and settle with being perfect 95% of the time. That's what I do. ;o)

    Lovely soccer picture! I wish I had a view like that to look at when I'm running! This picture looks even prettier on your blog than it did on instagram!

  10. lol; I keep my iphone charged just for that same reason; "quick guys, pretend you're behaving!"

    Mine are actually really well behaved, I blame it on being a guy and that they know I'll ground them from games at the drop of a hat. (That's why we don't wear hats) My proud moments are when they help me in the kitchen without me having to ask... and if that doesn't work, then without me having to ask more than twice.

  11. I'm sure she wasn't judging. We've all been there! ;)

  12. Ha!! At least she knows your family is "real" now. She was probably so jealous, and now feels like "Oh, they ARE my people." LOL

    The mountains make such a beautiful backdrop to that picture. I can't imagine having mountains that close to where soccer is played!

  13. Well, they can't be perfect. That would be weird.

  14. Oh shoot, I'm sorry, I entered my photoaday link in the wrong place!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Haha! Oh, but it's better to be real than to be perfect!

  16. Or she can say what I would be thinking.....I'm so glad her kids act up too. I am glad to hear that my son isn't the only one that will aggravate his sister and vice versa.

  17. Haha well I'm sure she knows kids will be kids!

  18. Sounds like my life! I think it sounds JUST LIKE KIDS! Funny!

  19. That is how they survive. They are angelic one minute, adorable the next, and when you are least expecting it, BAM! They are suddenly horrors and make us want to disappear. It is their way of keeping us humble and under their control. Or something like that. :)
