My Proud Mum Moments

My Proud Mum Moments



My boys never cease to make me proud but none so much as on the days which I’m sharing below.

For this week’s My Captured Moment I’m sharing not one  but two proud mum moments. They were both taken after the boys’ year 6 leavers service where they both received awards, one for literacy and one for science. What is even more amazing is that by pure fluke, they were taken 4 years apart, on the same day, in the same location. Looking at Teenager in the first, he looks so young and innocent but with the same blonde mop of hair, albeit more tamed.

It makes me realise just how much Tween is going to change over the next year as he embarks on his secondary school education, while Teenager is about to have the most testing time ahead with his GCSE’s looming. I’ve no doubt these two though, along with their baby brother, will continue to make my heart swell.

Life sure is bliss as a mum to my trio of testosterone!

      thanks Heledd, I know every mum is proud of their kids and I hope my boys read this one day and understand that beyond the nagging, I’m their biggest fans.
