Proud Mommy Moments--A Family In Crisis

I am no where near caught up in blog world.  I wonder if I ever will be.  But I couldn't let this opportunity go by without bragging about my kids!

I will start with Kristin.  The oldest.  Rich called her his rock.  I call her my little mother.  Saturday, when we decided Rich needed to go to the ER for his foot, he wondered if someone should come with him.  Kristin didn't even let me speak.  She volunteered (as tribute?) to go since I was sick.

This was me just the day before.

So needless to say, I had little fight in me, and my daughter stepped up to the plate and rode with her Dad to the ER.  At 11PM, it was decided that he needed to be admitted to the hospital, so my mother helped me out to pick Kristin up at the hospital.  I was super impressed with her maturity and her ability to handle the situation.  But it doesn't stop there.  The other two are doing their part too!


Emily has been the second in command to Kristin while I am running Rich to his appointments and work.  No driving.  She quickly and happily does chores and fetches things when asked.  And Ryan has been the man in charge.  He is showing me how he can do stuff too.  He is still boundless with energy, but he can do chores when asked, and get things for Daddy.  I am proud of them all, for when push comes to shove they are there.

so glad the kids are stepping up and helping when you so need them!

Emmy said...

Yea!! So happy- but also not surprised- that they are all stepping up. And hey if nothing else all of this craziness helps them realized how capable they all are and how much they truly can help then that will be a great blessing.

Thanks so much for linking up! Great PMM!

Your kids make me so happy! In this world it seems like kids do as they please and don't think they have to help so your kids make my heart sing with joy :) You guys are doing a fabulous job raising them!

What a blessing those kids are to you! I am so glad. It really stinks that you have these trials to go through right now. I hope things ease up on you soon. But what a great way for your kids to earn responsibility and to prove they can handle it. And wowzers can they ever!

You raised those kiddos right!
