Proud Mommy Moments

This a weekly meme-EVERY THURSDAY- hosted by Kmama of the Daily Dribbles and cohosted by Emmy Mom. This is your chance to share with us those moments that make your heart nearly burst with pride (so yes it's okay to brag about your kids) or you can share about those times that make you so "proud"-i.e. you want hang your head in shame and hide.. but hey at least it makes for funny blogging material.

I'm linking up with these two lovely ladies today with a wonderful Proud Mommy Moment. I read this link up pretty much every week and I don't know why I haven't joined in sooner.

We have been having a rough couple of days with Lula Mae and Jayce. I'm talking ROUGH. Nap time is a sacred for me.... and yes I know that it selfish, but I can't help it. It's my "me time". Over the past week Lula Mae has been doing anything but napping. Luckily she is confined to a crib and can't get up and flat out protest. (Yes I am terrified that when we move her to a big girl bed I will be fighting a horrible battle on my hands...that is another story... back to my moment) I finally realized that as long as she is resting I'm happy with that.

Yesterday as nap was drawing to an end, I decided to turn up Lula Mae's monitor and see what she was doing. This is what I heard....

"Okay now lets talk about what we learned at school today. Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy. The first 5 books of the Bible! Good job Mickey"....... and on and on and on....

My heart nearly exploded with happiness. With the time that we have been having with our kiddos these days, I go to bed wondering if anything I'm doing is sticking or making a difference in their lives. That moment during nap time lifted so much weight off my shoulders.

That girl loves learning, but more than anything she loves learning about God. Nothing could make me prouder!

Yea! That really is a PMM. And yes, it is hard to realize when they are testing and fighting us that they are actually learning. Nap time is sacred to me too :)

What's nap time? I lost mine long ago. I do do a quiet time when it just gets too much though!

That is awesome! I don't even know the books in the Old Testament. I take that back. I know the first 5, only because I learned a song in seminary. That's an early morning bible study for high school kids. I know I knew the whole song once, but sadly I only remember the first five books now. :D

Your little girl is too cute! Good job Mickey! LOVE it!

I loved this, Amy! The role you are playing right now is the most important one of a life time. And God keeps giving us glimpses of His goodness along the way! I proud of you!!! You are a wonderful mommy. :)))

There is nothing selfish about nap time. It is totally sacred. I finally have them all in school!!!

That is sooo awesome that she can name the books of the old testament like that. Wow. Very proud moment indeed.
