14/20 December Blog Challenge: Three Of My Proudest Moments (So Far).

coollogo_com-310435065

I’ve been sitting here and thinking about what are three of the proudest moments in my life are. It’s funny how as time goes by, these change. Things become more important, or less important or even forgotten altogether.

My number one proudest moment was mid November 2011. I believe it was the 15th or the 16th… It was the day that I introduced my daughter to my grandpa. I still remember how proud I felt presenting him with my little bundle of joy. Here is a photo of the occasion. This is my grandpa, my mom and of course my daughter.

Another of my proudest moments is hard to pinpoint. My fiance is in the forces. Due to privacy and media being used to obtain information, I won’t be specific on his rank, position or which branch of the military he belongs to. I can tell you that I am very proud that he has such an important career. Being a “military wife” isn’t always easy or fun… But the future that he is working so hard to provide to our daughter and myself is so amazing… and I mean that in both the sense of providing for his family as well as protecting our country and home.

And finally a third proud moment of mine is probably the time when a few months ago, My daughter and I were sitting at the table eating lunch after she got home from school. Her communication and speech is very delayed, but constantly improving. I never noticed how much until I asked her a question, not expecting much of an answer. She surprised me! I asked her “What did you do at school today?” Usually she would ignore me or just say something random and probably unrelated. This time however she basically went through a timeline of her day telling me that she rode a bike, sang row row row your boat and had a snack of *whatever I sent that day*. I just couldn’t believe my ears! So proud! My girl works so hard everyday and it really shows!

What are your proudest moments?

10/20 December Blog Challenge: An old photo of Me.

Ok, so this post is supposed to be an old photo of me. Which, technically this is true because I am in the photo and it is old.  Almost 23 years old to be exact. I was around 10, my other sister was 8 and this photo is us meeting my new baby sister for the first time.

Having a baby sister when you are 10 is so much fun. I remember that I always took her to the park, sometimes to play with her, sometimes just so I could show off my baby sister.  I used to get a few bucks allowance back then, and there was a dollar/corner store across the street. I would always spend my money on my little sister. I always bought her a new plastic animal figure any chance I got.  I remember wanting her to be a genius! My other sister and I would always teach her things, usually math. I think we had her knowing her times tables before she hit kindergarten… It was always so much fun teaching her things, and reading to her as a kid. I’m pretty lucky that now I have my own kid that I can read to, and someday help teach math!

I’m sure you all noticed those outfits my sister and I are wearing… yes they are matching! And yes completely dorky…. But, I remember quite liking this outfit… it was like there was a skirt on the bottom of the shirt, and a flowing floral collar… whats not to like?! I was styling. Thanks Mom!

So there you have it, an old photo of me, which includes my two little sisters. 🙂
