Proud Mommy Moments--Blast From the Past

When Kristin was about five or six years old, I taught her Primary class.  I think I have taught each one of my kids' Primary classes.  I digress.  I team taught with another gal.  The lesson that week was about "let your light so shine." and we used candles as an example. 

Now, of course we didn't light them.  Safety first.  But we asked the children, what do you light candles for.  Expecting (and hoping) for answers like (so you can see) if the lights go out they will light your way...etc.  What does my child say?  "Sometimes if the house is stinky (aka the garbage) my mom lights a candle!"  Yeah thanks Kristin.  Out of the mouths of babes.  I am sure my face turned many shades of red that day.

And what are your proud moments?  Past or present.  I am linking up with EmmyMom and KMama!

Yes, that would be embarrassing for sure! I wonder what age it is when they start to get a filter. ;)

Yeah sounds about right.

My phrase is I'm cheap not easy. So we went to Old Navy and I bought something for Tori and she told the cashier I was cheap not easy.
