My Proud Mummy Moments
My children have achieved all sorts over the years, they have made me such a proud mummy and I wanted to share a few of my recent proud mummy moments with you because, well, why not!
First up is T - he has always been more of an academic child, he was never really into sports and rarely even took part in sports days. That was until he started secondary school, he now LOVES his PE lessons and seems to be doing really well in things like Rugby and Hockey. He also joined the after-school Boxersize class which amazed me because I'd heard it was rather physical. This brings me to my proud mummy moment... he came home before Easter and told me he'd won the silver Boxersize medal!! I was so proud that my little (not so little any more but hey ho) boy had worked so hard and come so far in such a short space of time.
Now for N - I've mentioned before that N is a talented gymnast but she gave up the chance to make a career out of it because being in the squad wasn't making her happy. Well, since going back to the gymnastics coach who teaches at her school she has totally got her mojo back and, along with a selected group of other children her age, won a local gymnastics competition. If that wasn't enough, they have now been chosen to represent the borough in the upcoming county games!! I am so proud of what N has achieved with her gymnastics and I'm also proud that she had the courage to stop doing something that she wasn't enjoying. Being offered a place in a squad is a huge deal in gymnastics and I know leaving was a difficult decision for her to make, but I'm so glad she made it because she is enjoying gym so much more now.
And finally E - she can stand up all by herself!! I feel so proud when I put her down and she stands there looking all pleased with herself. She walks along furniture and if she's leaning on something she'll push it along to help her walk. She has very good balance so I don't think it'll be too much longer before she takes the plunge and makes those first steps alone.
So there are my recent proud mummy moments, I'd love to hear about yours...
