Moments of Pride

Sometimes Sundays can be stressful and chaotic with little ones. I know it's not meant to be that way, and we try to not make it stressful. For whatever reason today wasn't! We got up early... (i'm getting used to waking up early these days). So we weren't rushed! The kids all listened so well and we had church music playing which was always brings the spirit into our home. We weren't rushed. Thomas and I were fasting for our dear sweet sister in law, Lindsey. She has three blood clots and is struggling and in a lot of pain. She has so much going on right now with the 4 kids, and dealing with health problems and being pregnant. I was grateful for the opportunity to pray for and fast for her and their family. Anyway, church was just good today, things were relaxing, Leah was much better during sacrament meeting, and the boys teacher said the NICEST things about them today. They went in with a younger class today because their normal teacher wasn't there. Anyway the teacher who took on the two classes said she was nervous/overwhelmed when she first found out she was going to take on two classes, but then she said Kasen and Layton were SO fun and that she was so grateful they were in class today. She told me they were very reverent, good examples and answered all of the questions that she asked. My heart was bursting with pride. I always worry about my kids. I worry that they won't make good choices, that they will be naughty at school, that they will be mean or bossy or rude or something! I don't know why I worry so much, because I know they are good boys, but i don't think it's possible to not worry... haha!

It is so nice to feel like we are doing something right with our parenting when we hear such good things about our kiddos. I am so proud of the people they are becoming and I am so proud of them being good examples to other kids. We recently had parent teacher conferences too, and the boys teachers has nothing but amazing things to say about them. They are friendly, helpful, happy and smart boys. I am so grateful for them!

It's impossible not to worry as a mother, right?? Even if you know you're trying your hardest, and that they are good kids, worrying still happens. I love getting good reports from people too. Really makes you feel happy and that something you're doing is right. :)
