    Default What has been your most satisfying parenting moment?

    Being a parent is tough a lot of the time - well, that has been my experience. I just spent 2 hours trying to get DS2 to go to sleep unswaddled and he has finally gone down. Not my MOST satisfying parenting moment, but made me feel a sense of achievement somehow. I was wondering what people would say were their most satisfying parenting moments?? Yesterday we went to a party and DS1 ran around saying 'hello' to everyone and giving them high-fives and was interacting so happily with everyone that we got lots of comments about what a lovely little boy he is. It made me feel so happy given that he has been socially awkward since he was about 1 and cried at the sight of strangers. MCHN and paed made a big deal out of it....but he is now doing really well. That gives me a huge sense of satisfaction as we have made a big effort to help him feel more comfortable in social situations and it seems to have paid off.

    So many over the years, but most recent would have to be my eldest dd getting into forensic science at uni this year after missing a whole term of year twelve due to anxiety.

    My DS is only 11 months old but so many so far one that sticks out is the fact that were still enjoying a great breastfeeding relationship through so many hurdles

    DS not waking either dp or I up this morning and climbing into bed for a snuggle. Made more perfect by the fact dp has a late start today.

    Our cat, lily then jumped on the bed and gave ds snuggles and smelt his face. Ds didn't wake but just kept twitching his nose because of her whiskers.

    DS walking in his own. A pretty generic proud parent moment, but extra special to us because he didn't do it till he was 21 months old and it had been a source of stress for some time, wondering if he was ever going to!!

    My biggest one right now is ds1 who is 4 starting a random conversation with a little girl while shopping. Asking her questions and responding

    His kindy teacher wrote a letter to our GP as she is 'worried' but I think she is expecting too much of him too soon. This yr is his first year of being in any care with a group of kids so I think he is doing so well

    At this point in time it's when DD - 9 mths - turbo crawls up to me when I'm on the floor with her and pulls herself up to my shoulders and gives me a cuddle and nuzzles her face in my shoulder. It's bliss!

    Oh so many awesome moments!!

    My DS is nearly 14 months and is just starting to take steps progressing to walking. The other day he took about 4-5 steps to me then hugs me and pats me on the back as he does it. Then he lets go, and while standing claps himself at what a good job he did!
