Welcome to Proud Mommy Moments at The Kir Corner!
I have such a SWEET Mommy to share with you today!
All week I’ve been excited to welcome her and when I think of her my cheeks ache from smiling.
If you don’t know her, well today is your lucky day because I can tell you once you visit her amazing blog you’ll be thanking me for the introduction and wondering how you ever missed such a sun-shiny place in the blogosphere.
There are so many things I adore about Bruna. First she is so honest, she wears her heart on her sleeve and she knows exactly how to bring bloggers together and allow us ways to celebrate ourselves. She has a gift for finding the perfect way to introduce us to each other (Let’s BEE Friends) and how to celebrate the beauty inside each one of us (Bee Beautiful You).
She is also an amazing teacher, (she does it say it’s her “Calling”) and if you read her you know it’s true. She is so good at instructing and offering beauty tips or arts and crafts but she does it in a way that is so subtle that you come away learning things in a happy relaxed atmosphere. She shares those things with us in her feature called Mama Teach Us and it’s wonderful.
Yet, besides being an amazing friend, blogger, social media diva and teacher is her role as a wife and mom.
Her love for her family is evident in each smile, each word she uses to describe her beautiful daughters and husband. (Honestly, her photos make me catch my breath every time I visit. )
Bruna, I feel so lucky to have you as a friend. I truly smile whenever I visit you or see you name in my inbox because you are amazing inside and out, a bright beautiful light in the world.
Here is Bruna with her Proud Mommy Moment:
Being a Mom and a teacher definitely has its perks. Those of you who know me know that I bring a lot of my classroom home to my kids. Besides setting up their toy room to look like a mini classroom, I regularly bring home new books for them to read and new craft/art ideas for them to try … hence the Mama Teach Us theme on my blog.
Now if someone were to ask me which job is more challenging, Motherhood or teaching, my answer would be motherhood hands down! You can give me a group of 30 students and I will have them independent and in a routine within no time. They will listen to me, laugh at my jokes and enjoy learning in a safe and fun environment. Motherhood, however, is a whole other ball park. Give me 3 beautiful daughters and there are days when I go to bed exhausted from taking care of them. We have our good days and then we have days when they’re off the wall, totally whiny and unbearable and all I want to do is chuck them out the window, not literally but imaginably <— my new, made-up word! (Or is it a real word?)
Motherhood is a profession like no other.
Twenty-four hours around the clock, seven days a week, 12 months a year, for years and years thereafter. No breaks, no vacations, no time outs.
The profession is life-long. The side effects are endless.
On even the toughest of days though, it’s those little moments our kids share with us that make us stop, think and feel thankful for them. These moments make us feel proud to be their mothers and blessed to have children in our life.
I’m especially proud to be a Mother to my three daughters when …
Little B writes me love notes on her Etch-a-Sketch. “I luv u mom” and “You are the best Mom in the wole world” are her favourites.
Little H tells me she missed me while I was at work, out grocery shopping or in the bathroom.
Teen B cleans her room without me asking.
Little B worries about her baby sis.
Little H always wants to hug her sister Little B.
Teen B holds my hand when we’re out in public.
I find Little B reading books to Little H.
Little H sings along to songs while playing on the computer.
Teen B randomly volunteers hugs and kisses to me.
I watch Teen B perform in her dance competitions.
I see all of them playing together, having fun and loving on each other.
It’s hard work being a Mom …
but my reward is pride and unconditional love.
No other profession or career compares.
