    Default Share a proud moment

    I am so so very proud of DS today I could burst. At the end of last year he was complaining to me about a boy in his class 'I hate (let's call him Tom), he smells and he's so annoying- he's always following us around and giving us things'
    Well of course I was heartbroken to hear that, and suspected he was repeating what someone else had said about this poor kid. Tom comes from a disadvantaged family and admittedly often doesn't smell the best. I told him I was so sad to hear him say that and asked him to be nice to Tom. I said he didn't have to be friends with him if he didn't want to, but to never say mean things about him and speak up if other kids did. Fast forward to today, and we are chatting about who he wants to invite to his birthday party next month. This year we're keeping it very small and he's allowed to invite 3 friends to come to Timezone. He named two best friends and Tom. I asked him if he really wanted to invite Tom as they aren't really friends and he said 'I know mum but he really wants to be my friend and he's a really nice boy'

    Share your proud moments it's so lovely when you feel like you've done something right and raising them well!

    I asked my ds1 (5.50) to clean his room last night (properly) as we had an open house this morning and he actually did it, no whine, no tantrum, no yelling.

    I was so surprised, I was elated lol and his little face beamed with pride when I praised him for a job well done

    At the end of last school term, DS1's school had a 'School's Got Talent' show for kids who would like to perform. Sing, dance, tell jokes, any thing to encourage them to get ip in front of the school. My DS1 started playing the baritone trumpet last year as that was his allocated instrument - think Big tuba looking thing. He plucked up the courage to play a song at the concert. He told me what he wanted to play, i got the music for him, he practiced every day for weeks. He stood there in the concert and played ' Let it Go' from Frozen from beginning to end and the whole school sang. Good on you DS1!!

    We were at a friend's BBQ a few months ago and DS1 without prompting made my lunch because I was busy with the other 2. The bread had holes, I suspect the sausage had been dropped and it was drowned in sauce but it tasted awesome because I didn't have to make it!

    I got this message from one of my mum's friends the other day and I thought it was so lovely of her to take the time to say that DH and are doing ok.
    Made my day actually and I felt a big heart swell for DD and DS1.

    "Hi misskitty, just spent a few lovely moments with your beautiful and confident children and wanted to commend you on what a great job you and DH must be doing as rearing such gorgeous chn. DD was so patient at a rather lengthy church service and we were all impressed with her courage to go up alone to the altar among ppl she didn't know, and DS1 regaled me with "everything you need to know" about Star Wars. Beyond singing praises to your parenting skills I want to say a big thank you for the tastiest nectarines I've ever sampled and for the lovely fresh farm eggs!"

    I just don't think we realise how much a message or word from someone saying "You're doing a good job" means. It honestly had me teary that someone would take the time to say it.
    I'm actually going to make more of an effort to do the same thing.
