It’s Thursday, which means it’s time for another Proud Mommy Moments!
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.
Before I get started, just a quick note. I decided that I’m forgoing the blog nicknames for the kids. For future reference, Jack = Buddy. Jack is my first born and is 8 years old. He’s the one who loves to play hockey and sports longer hair. Nick = Buster. He’s my sweet, middle child and is 5 years old. He sports the shorter hair cut. I hope that helps with the differentiation. Jdaddy will still be Jdaddy and I’ll continue to be Kmama and Kristi.
This week I decided to share the love. I have a PMM for everyone.
I’ve been bragging about Jack a lot lately, and well, I’m going to do it again today.
He’s just growing up so much. He’s always been a bit immature, which is why we had him repeat Kindergarten, but lately, I feel like he’s making such great strides maturity-wise. It warms my heart, but it also makes me realize how fast they really grow up.
Last weekend, Jack had an away hockey game. Normally he wears his team sweatshirt and warm up pants to his away games. However, that morning he surprised us by asking to wear dress pants and a shirt and tie, just like the high school hockey players do when they have games. How could we say no to that?
Here’s a pic of him all dressed up before his game. He just melts my heart.
And now, because I enjoy humor so much, I just have to share this as well. Last night, I mentioned that I needed to pick up around the house. Nick pipes up with, “Mama, how come cleaning is a mommy’s job? How come daddy’s don’t clean the house?” I couldn’t help but laugh. In all fairness, while picking up/cleaning is mainly my responsibility in our house, Jdaddy does his fair share. He’s good about doing what needs to be done and helping me out. It just cracked me up that he completely overlooked everything that Jdaddy does to help out.
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!
