It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Proud Mommy Moments!
For more info on what PMM is all about, see this post. Please make sure that if you’re linking up, you’re actually linking a Proud or Not-So-Proud Mommy moment (using the permalink. Not sure what a permalink is? Just ask me). Links not related to PMM will be deleted and deleting links makes me feel bad. Please don’t make me feel bad.
Buddy’s birthday brought out both the best behavior in him, but also the worst.
The worst arrived when it was time to share his gifts with his friends. At one point, I scooped him up, threw him over my shoulder, and carried him up to his bedroom, kicking and screaming. After a few threats of sending everyone home and giving away all of his new toys, he finally calmed down enough to play with his friends again.
Thankfully, that bad behavior was short-lived.
Buddy’s best behavior was evidenced by him saying “thank you” more times in that single day than I think I’ve ever heard him say. At the end of the very long day (our last guests left just before midnight), he crawled into my lap, told me thank you, and said that he loved me very much. That’s huge for my normally very reserved child.
Hearing heartfelt thank you’s and I love you’s makes all the hard work and a little bit of bad behavior worthwhile.
Okay! Now it’s your turn. Type out your Proud, or maybe not-so-Proud Mommy Moment and link it up! Don’t forget to check out Emmy’s Proud Mommy Moment as well! One last thing, PMM isn’t just for mom’s…anyone can link up!
