Proud Mommy Moments: What My Son Reads

Ready for the good the bad and the funny?  It's Proud Mommy Moment 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! 

Every Thursday!



Chances are you are writing something about your kids anyway- so most likely it will fit. Please grab the button for your post.  My co-host  Kmama is taking a few more weeks off enjoying her new baby, but head over to her blog anyway to see some cute pictures! 

I always feel like I am having to battle to get Lucas to do his 20 minutes of reading everyday.  He is a great reader he just finds many other things he would like to do, like build Legos.  He loves the Magic Tree House books and will often tell me about the latest one he is reading, but he isn't like me yet in that once I start a book I have a hard time putting it down until I am done.

So last night as we were talking he told me that he had read for twenty minutes before going to bed and that he was going to read the book he read everyday for twenty minutes.   When I asked what book it was he said his scriptures, specifically the Book of Mormon.

He said he went back to the beginning and is going to read everyday for twenty minutes until he reads the entire thing.

Needless to say I was very proud and very happy as I know that with the ever changing world around us, a strong foundation of faith on good principles and values and truth is the only thing that will help him make it through this crazy world.

It was a truly proud mommy moment.

  1. It has to feel good when you see them absorbing what they are being taught. A pat on the back for Lucas and his Mom, too!

  4. My daughter is supposed to read every day too and some times it is such a challenge to get her to do that. I'm not sure why either... I guess there are more interesting things to do. Like you, once I start a book I have to keep reading to see what happens.

  9. Wow … most impressive. A better choice than … say, Captain Underpants!

    My son loved the Magic Treehouse books too. I love how they teach about history but in a fun and exciting way.

  12. Yay! I can imagine the pride and love you felt for him. That is so sweet, and I have heard reading the Book of Mormon can help to cultivate a love for reading. I hope it is true in his case. And even if it isn't, at least it will help to cultivate a love for the gospel in him, right?!
