PROUD MAMA (EMBARRASSES CHILD)
H won the third grade multiplication bee at the end of this past school year. He worked hard studying for it, and entirely on his own initiative, which made me so happy. But he was intensely modest about his "win". He kept telling me, "Aw, Mom! It is not such a big deal. There were three First Place winners!" Three boys who just could not be "spelled down" (multiplied down?) It took so long that the administrators finally had to declare a multiple tie. H is always so modest about his achievements: it took me all summer to persuade him to pose with his medal. And I do apologize for bragging. Just could not help myself when I saw that the Moody Monday challenge for today is PROUD.
