Proud Mommy Moments: Church




It's Thursday-do you know what that means? It is time for Proud Mommy Moments!

Proud Mommy Moments is a brand new weekly meme hosted by EmmyMom and Kmama of the Daily Dribbles. Whether it be something that truly makes you proud or something that makes you want to hang your head in embarrassment.  You can tell a story, share a picture, or video.  Anything you want.  It's time to brag.  It's time pray you're not the only one.  So come on and play along!!

Last Sunday, we didn't go to church.  It was Stake Conference.  And two hours is a very long time for a five year old.  It's even longer for the mom of said five year old.  As I sat reclined in my chair, yes it is MY chair, my kids asked me if we were going to church.  I simply said no because we slept too late.  Which was mostly true.  It was nice to sleep in.  It was then that all three of them started organizing their Littlest PetShop toys.  Between them they probably have close to 200 of these things.  Soon after shuffling here and there and whispers, I could hear church music along with their sweet voices singing the hymns.  "Oh, that's nice." I thought to myself.  There is something so wonderful about church music.  It truly sets a tone.  It was then I heard them begin their "meeting."  I looked up from my laptop out of curiosity.  It was church with the Littlest Petshops.  

They had a congregation, a Bishopric, people set to give talks complete with a pulpit.  At first I was beaming with pride.  It showed me they have a strong testimony in the importance of church.  It showed me that perhaps they do pay a bit more attention than I give them credit for.  Then, I was immediately brought down from my high place as I realized we should have gone to church.  It was still a proud moment for me.  And it was quite an enlightening one.  Our children do listen, much more than we realize.  This was indeed a proud mommy moment.  





What is your proud mommy moment?
