    Default Things that make you just SO proud to be a parent!

    I came home from work tonight after only being gone for an hour and a half and my 15 month old DS's face lit up and he ran over to give me a big cuddle. No matter how much of a little $hit he can be, it's times like this that make me so proud to be a Mumma, and just when I thought I couldn't love him anymore, my heart grows just a tad. ♥

    Please add yours

    My gorgeous, toothless (lost two top front teeth in one week) 6 year old DD smiling proudly and showing off her creation after working hard for three whole hours to build her Lego Friends vet shop. She did it all by herself, following the instruction book. Her determination blew me away.

    I got feedback from child care today that DS is so gentle with the littler ones.

    At the end of the day when they so family grouping they always request he come over to join the nursery kids because he's so gentle with the babies ☺

    I got a phonecall from dd1 because she had to tell something funny that happen to her today. I love being the one person she can call to say anything.

    I love that my kids look out for each other. Ds3 (15 mths) ran off on me today when I was paying for something and ds2 (5) ran after him so he wouldn't get lost.

    My kids drew a joint letter to me that said they hope I feel better soon because I'm beautiful. I'm sick. They even fake hand wrote their baby brothers name on the letter. Was very sweet.

    I have a kid that does really well in school (one of the school mums told me that when the other kids don't know stuff, they just go, "oh, go ask C, she will know..." Lol). She's so academically minded and gets good marks every year.

    She's also one of those kids other parents seem to like having over because of her manners. I'm proud when they tell me that because that's important to me.

    I'm also proud of how kind she can be and how good at sharing she is.

    Ooo two nights in a row now, while dd 18mo and I are in bed doing the bedtime thing, she has stood up and kissed me all over my face, chin, cheeks, nose, mouth and came back for my forehead . Oh and a few weeks ago she put both hands on either side of my face to kiss me :'). It's wonderfully heart warming and I can't contain my giddy joy at this, especially since she's not been overly affectionate til now. Oh and I love that she makes her toes kiss in the bath.. cute. Oh love xxx

    Receiving a text message from a friend who said that just after our play date together her DD commented that my DS 'is just sooooo nice!!' They're both almost 3 and pretty much in love with each other. It just warms my heart to see the way he shares things with her and keeps an eye out for her (even tells her to be careful climbing things at the park!) The signs of a gentle, caring future husband I hope.

    Every night when we put nearly 3 yo DS to bed we run and do somersaults to get in bed ( DH did it once so now its a bedtime tradition!) anyway one night last week DH did it first, then DS then me and I usually pretend to be apprehensive and DS always says its ok mumma you can do it - so I somersaulted on and nearly fell off the edge and DS grabbed my arm and I said "lucky you got me" and he said as he hugged me " I've always got you mumma" DH and I both had tears in our eyes
