Proudest Mom Moment So Far

So last night was my father-in-laws birthday so went to dinner with them. Ethan was being a really good boy. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table. (Olive Garden on a Tuesday...The place was sooo busy..Weird) While waiting Ethan grabbed Chris and said Pee Pee. So Chris took him to go potty, but brought him back out because the toilets in the men's restroom were nasty, I took him and he went Pee Pee. We sat down and Ethan was being a really good boy. When we sat down he put his napkin on his lap and then started eating all kinds of salad when we got that. He ate all of his Mac'n'Cheese(of course). He would eat some food, take a drink and then wipe his mouth off with his napkin. And then he'd do it all over again. When we were close to being finished a lady came over to our table and said "I'm sorry to bother you but I just wanted to tell you that your little boy is such a gentleman. He is so well behaved, you can tell that you are a good mother and you should be commended for how well he behaves." I couldn't stop smiling! I said thank you very much, and just kept thinking to myself "Ethan please don't say Dog Poo, Please don't say it right now." And he didn't he just looked and the lady and smiled! I guess Chris and I do set a pretty good example for Ethan, so far at least! It made me feel so good to have someone notice how good of a boy Ethan can be! I love that boy, even when he wont stop saying Dog Poo.....Sometimes I feel like I'm not a very good mother, but moments like this make me feel like I must be doing something right! :)

Good Job MOM! I just love when our kids make us look good. And you are a great mom, don't ever try to make yourself believe differntly. Really how could any of us not be good moms. Look who raised us, look who raised them. There is a long history of fantastic moms. Just keep trying and don't get discouraged.

I love that he wipes his mouth with a napkin. How did you teach that one? Alyssa loves her shirts for napkins. aaauuggghhhh!
