Mommy Mondays Link Up

Welcome to Mommy Monday, a day where we celebrate our motherhood. This is a link up, so share your story and link up with other bloggers. On Saturday, I shared the joys of being a dance mom. Today, I'm going to share some wonderful pictures of my son.

This is Josh. He is my light and my world. Yes, he is a dancer, but he is also a geek and a natural storyteller. He will tell you the entire story of any movie he has seen, plus little extras. He reads with such comprehension that he can tell you what is in a book, but not in the movie.

Here he is with his kitty, Huggy Bear. Huggy sleeps with Josh every night and will let Josh carry him around the apartment.

Okay, this isn't a picture of him, but a picture of what he builds with his Kinex pieces. He loves making pyramids like this.
 And of course, I have to have at least one dance picture in here. Here he is at Nationals last year when he was picked to be in the Standout Dancer routine. The three lovely ladies with him are dancers at our studio who were also picked for the routine. They all did outstanding!

 Yup - that's a rare picture of me. In purple, too! We went to a Vikings game with my mom.

And here's a more recent picture of my special little guy. He's helping me model some hats I made.

I love being a mom to this guy. He is so helpful around the apartment. He does the dishes, cleans the bathroom, cleans out the cat boxes, vacuums, takes out the garbage, folds and puts his laundry away. He's a great kid. I am very, very lucky to have him.

Link back up to Simply Just Lovely with your post about being a mom.


  1. Aw what a great helper he is! Love the photos - he looks like he's a lot of fun! :-)

    Thanks so much for following The Active Mum! I've returned the follow and am looking forward to reading more!

    Have a great day xx

    1. He is a lot of fun. We have a lot of the same interests in movies and tv shows, so we always have mommy and Josh time.

  2. I was already loving your blog and then I saw this post with the Vikings picture and now I'm definitely loving it! Following you back from Mom's World. Looking forward to lots more posts! ;)
