    I am so proud of my 5 yo dd. She really is her own little person. She is quirky, opinionated and a bit bossy but also kind and considerate. She is also very imaginative and has a wicked sense of humour.

    I was so proud on day we were at mcdonalds and she was playing on the playground. Some big boys came and climbed up and say on top of the play equipment. Some girls were talking about the sign that said no climbing and dd who was about 3.5 at the time came over and pointed at the sign and said 'what does that sign say? ' so I told her 'no climbing' and she then turned around and shouted up to them 'did you hear that you boys, no climbing! '. Gosh I love this kid.

    I'm proud of how well they generally behave when I go shopping with them (they're 3 & 8). My 3yo DD will sometimes ask for stuff but if I say no, she just smiles and says "ok". Sometimes I surprise them with a treat for being well behaved (a small thing at the checkout), especially if they haven't asked for anything.

    Mummas this thread makes my heart glow seriously. I really truly believe that children are our future more so than just that being a cliche. Last year I went to a press conference with Professor Brian Cox prior to his show here in Brisbane and he talked a lot about investing in our youth and opening their minds. I think the more we focus on the good our children do the more chance we have of advancing our society in a positive way. It's just so good to see so many Mumma's with such beautiful kids and a huge focus on learning… Clearly apples don't fall far from the trees…

    I asked ds (almost 6) what he got his faction token for at school last week. He told me that his teacher was wanting to play a game with the class and decided to split them in 2 teams - boys v girls. There were more boys so the teacher asked the boys if one of them would volunteer to be on the girls team. Ds was the only one who put up his hand, and despite the little bit of teasing from the rest of the boys, he said 'they were just being silly mummy, why would I mind being on the girls team?!'
    It made me proud that even though he usually cares what his friends think and can be quite shy, he was able to speak up in front of the whole class and say that he didn't mind.

    Children's voices are the most powerful tool they will ever have to defend themselves from bullying. It's a really sad thing when kids tease others and even sadder when grown adults carry that kind of stuff on. So I really think it's awesome when kids learn from a young age to ignore or speak up for people who throw shade. Good kid you have there well done.
