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!
Medals
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...

  1. Fabulous Kate.

    We all want our children to grow up to be balanced (forgive the pun) and not to be afraid of changing things if they're not working for them ... and to try new things that are out of our comfort zone.

    I still have proud mummy moments :) Sam has worked so hard at Uni this year (last year he did too but it didn't 'count') and is on track for a first this year. He has organised himself (this is a child who was a bit wild in secondary school haha) with creating his own timetable (there are very few lectures throughout the year - they have to do most of their learning themselves). His reasoning is that if he has a bad year next year, this year will balance the final results. Must admit I was a bit worried about him for a while with the stress he was under but he's come out the other side now.

    Alfie has grown his freelance graphic design work and this week been commissioned regularly by an indie music label for all their graphic work! I'm proud of his dedication in continuing to strive (even though it's a tough discipline to work in).

    Have a great weekend Kate.
