Mommy Moments – Sentimental Moments

mommy moments

Hello. This week’s theme for Mommy Moments is SENTIMENTAL MOMMY MOMENT. I know each of us have tons of memories with our kids we would want to share but I would like to request that you highlight at least one of your favorite moments with your kids and share with us why it is your favorite sentimental moment!

This photo was taken on the recognition day of Kyla on March 2009. I really felt mixed emotions that day. I was so happy that she has finished her first year of schooling and that she was able to overcome her fear and performing on stage. She grew up emotionally and socially and it was really an achievement. I was also sad in a way because my little girl is growing up too fast… I reminisced on so many “mommy moments” memories… I remembered how we would study together at home using our flash cards, how we learned to color using crayons and paints, how I used to read her stories before she goes to sleep, and so much more… I know that in a matter of years, she would soon have her own secrets that I wont know about and her own life…

Another favorite of mine is our sleeping together time. We still co-sleep and I really love sleeping beside my kids. They want me to embrace them when they go to sleep and I truly cherish this moment. The picture below is taken few minutes before we slept the other night. The kids and I are goofing around… 🙂

Lastly, I love it when my kids give me art works or drawings. I collect and keep the art work. I’d like to fix our living room and display their works there one day.

Share your stories with us! Join us at Mommy Moments!

  4. Chris, I’ve got a different interpretation of the subject! Oh I hope it’s fine.

    Anyway, I should bring out two boxes of Kleenex na! I have bad colds and this week’s subject will make it worse! Haha!

    Kyla and Toby are real darlings, and that’s because you celebrate their ups and welcome their lows just the same. 🙂

    Those are such great moments. I am too sick right now to write anything so I have to skip this week. 🙁 But I loved reading yours.

  6. As much as we want them to stay as our babies… It is impossible… They grow up too fast right before our eyes,,, that is why we should always embrace the moments that we share together,,,,

    My kids’ entry to school and their grad or moving up from one level to the next is one of the many sentimental moments for me. I am so inloved at the idea of being at their side whenever they need me and I’m glad that you feel the same way toward your children too! It always show in your pics and posts.

    Take care always, Chris and kisses to Kyla and Toby! 🙂
