So proud of my son tonight! He's had a so-so swim season and been discouraged all year. But he went out there tonight and took 7 seconds off his 200 free and 16 seconds off his 500 free. Huge drops in our world. He wanted to move on to the next meet - knew what he had to do - and did it.

Proud mama!

So many little things make me proud. When someone holds the door for us and he says thank you. When he shares his toys with the other children even when they are being mean. The other day at the store a woman dropped her wallet and change went everywhere. He flew over to her and started picking up all her change and handing it back. She gave him some of her change and told him "when someone drops money, keep the silver ones!" He looked so surprised that she thought he should keep the change! I love him and how helpful and thoughtful he is! Today also we went to register for T-ball and it was an extra $5 for the background check for DH for coaching. DS offered his $5 he had just got in a valentines card to help pay for t-ball. Of course we didnt take it, but it was a sweet gesture.

I'm proud of my son for something he did today. He's only 18 months old, so you'll forgive me if he hasn't made an A in Trig yet? Okay, today, we were playing "catch" where I usually have to GIVE him the ball and then take it away (yeah). But today, I said "Throw me the ball" and he threw it right into my hands. I was about four feet away! We tried it a second time, and he sorta kinda threw it to me again. The second pass wasn't but a foot away from where I was standing, so I think it counts for more than a fluke, yes?
so we can't be proud of our kids when they do something well?

I think he was joking, just without the tell-tale emoticon?

BTW, I love all of these proud parent stories, from the small developmental steps to the big achievements. It makes me happy that we can all appreciate our kids' accomplishments together without it becoming a competition!

Yep yep. You'll notice I followed with "I'm proud of my son..." I wouldn't display hypocrisy so clearly.

But seriously, pride is the root of all money.

So yesterday I was picking Trinitee up from her Grannys and as I was walking away her Granny was waving and saying Bye sugar bugar bye and Trinitee waved back !! I know it sounds so small but shes never done that before and now if you say bye she starts waving She also is crawling now and will walk with one of those walk behind things. She can clap too. Still no teeth. And when she gets mad she screams MOM! LOL

My wife sent me a text this morning about our 6 month old that read, and I quote:

Quote:
"Our son just laid his first turd!"
(I should probably share that he was born with some GI issues, and cleaning his diapers has not been fun.)
