I am the mother of three kids under the age of five. Many days are challenging and stressful, but I am always thankful and proud to be their Mama. My 2 "big kids" make me especially proud when they are kind to their baby sister and share their things with her.
PLM - In the end, all that daily hard work pays off for our children and the world!
I feel like I have a million proud moments and Liam is only 4-but my most recent was when Liam was talking to his Grandpa in MN on the phone. He told Grandpa that we wanted his friends to fly to Mn with him so they could meet his grandpa and Grandma (we live in GA). He sure loves his grandpa and grandma!
PLM - We understand the joy of your children loving your parents. Skype has changed our world.
My proud Mommy moment was this past weekend when my 5 year old graduated preschool, he stood in front of his class and informed them that he wants to be a Monster Truck Driver when he is a grown up! Everyday with my two boys is a proud Mommy moment for me!
PLM - We love all the dreams and aspirations our children have!
I am so proud of my 8 year old son! He was diagnosed with Dyslexia this year and has always struggled in school. His grades have been B’s and C’s until now. As of the last six weeks of school he is making straight A’s!! I am so proud of how hard he has worked and how far he has come this school year. I’m one proud momma :)
PLM – We too are thankful for an early diagnose. What a difference the right teaching methods and school can make.
My children ages 17 and 20 are not graduating this year. My most recent proud parent moment is of me with our Aussie, Smokey, upon his graduation from agility training. Thank you.
PLM – We are thrilled for you. We are just struggling with basic obedience right now. Puppy stage is tough!

Here is a pic of me with my three beautiful sons. One of my proudest moments was when my two older boys met their new brother and were so loving to him. They still are very loving to him and it makes me feel good to know that they learned to be so loving from my husband and I.
PLM - Way to be a great role model for your children and others.

I am so proud of my 2 daughters for their love and generosity. 18 mos. ago our family started the adoption process to bring home a son from South Korea. As we were waiting and preparing for bringing our son home my daughters came to me one day with a solution to a problem I hadn't even brought up to them yet. We have 3 bedrooms in our house and both girls had their own bedroom. Well, the girls noticed that Henry would need a bedroom and they decided all on their own that Trixie would move out of her bedroom because it had a crib in it and Lydia would have her move into her room because her bed sleeps 2. I was so very, very proud that they would decide all on their own to give up their own rooms all for the sake of a brother who we hadn't met yet.
Our son, Henry, is home now. Both girls play with him and help me more than they ever have before. They anticipate some things I need before I even ask and when I do ask for help they immediately jump in. It's wonderful (and quite different from before!).
Lucky, happy mom,
P.S. YOU would be proud of Lydia, too. The "Happy Mom" shirt I'm wearing is the only one of your tshirts I have. I got it for mothers day 6 yrs. ago when my first daughter, Lydia, was born. I wear it all the time -- it's my very favorite tshirt. When Lydia and I went to a mother/daughter tea for Mother's Day we played a game and Lydia was asked what her mother's favorite thing to wear was. She quickly and confidently answered, "Her Happy Mom shirt!" and she was exactly right. :)
PLM- My “Happy Mom” eyes are filled with tears as I read your proud moment. Your girls are so kind and Henry is so blessed to have big sisters…. If he ever questions it, just have him call my brother. Of course, my brother will not have a chance to respond, my sister and I still speak for him :)
Dear PLM, I live in your shirts Fri-Sun. They are the best! I wanted to share with you my recent proud parenting moments. My daughter, who graduated from preschool this week (one proud moment!) just started playing T-Ball. In yesterday’s game she got two outs and scored two runs! Yeah Lauren! We have been struggling on how to end my son’s nighttime addiction to his pacifier. Last week Kade announced all on his own that he was ready to give the “BaBa” to a new baby. He walked to his bed, placed the BaBa on his dresser and announced he was done! We celebrated at the toy store. He has not asked for it again. He brags that he helped a new baby. So proud of my kids!
PLM - Great stories. You certainly have much to be proud of!
As for most mommies, it's hard to pick just 1 thing to be proud of with our children! Seems like each day brings something new they do or say that makes us proud! Lately, it's been my son's ability to share...just the other day he got a new toy, his first "pool toy," and when we got to the pool his friend was excited to see his toy. He gave it to his friend to play with first. He's just a sweet spirit!
PLM – Thanks for “sharing” with us!
My proudest mom moments are when my kids do so well in something they have been practicing at. My son LOVES baseball and when he gets home from school he works at it and come game day he is great! My daughter loves track and when she is running down that track her smile is bigger than life. I especially am proud of my kids when they show compassion for someone else.
PLM - Sports not only keep you fit, but they teach life lessons.

The original PeaceLoveMom’s with their daughters doing some celebrating in New York! Tavern on the Green sadly was empty, but Central Park was filled with lots of PeaceLoveMom’s that day.
I'm proud of my boys....always. Whether they're playing, learning, making mistakes, making jokes, etc. It's what makes them great. And I'm just lucky to be here for the ride! Thanks PLM for celebrating moms...always.
PLM- We are lucky to be able to share the Celebration of Motherhood with you. Love the bubbles!!! Great fun when it is a beautiful day.
I have a proud mama moment everyday that I wake up to my little boys, they make me laugh and sometimes scream....I look into their big eyes and I see Gods precious miracles that he has given me and I couldn't be more proud because my boys always pick me floweres, give me sweet wet kisses, big warm hugs and an unconditional love that words can't express....these are little glimpses of my heart!!

PLM- We agree. These children of ours are such miracles. We are truly blessed.

I am very lucky to be the mom of 2 great girls.
When I see them being good to each other, that is when I feel so proud to be their mom! Sisters are irreplaceable and I try and tell them each daily how lucky they are to have each other in their life. Being good to each other is so important!
I am so lucky to be their mom!
PLM - sounds like they are lucky to have you too! Great advice for everyone. Be kind to your sister.
I am a proud parent of a 2 yr old who just started sleeping in a big girl bed! No more crib! Now we just need to work on the potty training :)
PLM- So exciting! Good luck with the potty. Can’t wait to hear how that goes :)
Proudest Mom Moment - our little one, Hunter, just turned 13 months old.
My proudest moment so far..... seeing my little boy sitting on a high chair at a restaurant, tapping his chest and saying his name for the first time! I got teary eyed!!!
Second proudest moment....every time I get to wear my Peace Love Mom shirts and cap, because I'm able to express what a "Happy Mom" I am.
PLM- We got teary eyed just looking at these sweet photos. Happy Moms are contagious. Thanks for the great photos.
Proud mom moment! We took our son on a Disney weekend for his fifth birthday - what a special time. Minnie is my favorite and my son was super proud to be the picture with us! He also told me that day that he was lucky to have me as a mom and also see Minnie in the same day!
PLM- Minnie is one of our favorites too! In fact, I dress up as Minnie every year for Halloween. Just can’t seem to figure out how to work a PLM tee into my costume – that would make her outfit perfect!
I am proud of my daughters because they manage to keep up with their academic priorities while playing softball, attend dance classes, and are very active in our church.
Port Neches, TX
PLM- Jamie - We can see why you are so proud & GRATEFUL!!
