    Default so proud of ......

    DS for the incredible boy he is turning into. He looked amazing in his suit at graduation with his freshly braided hair (he has long, curly blonde hair that he has recently changed from wearing in dreadlocks to braids and his speeches were awesome considering he forgot to take his notes and had tears over it. He has done an amazing job of representing his school as school captain, getting 2 scholarships, getting an academic award from his primary school, getting into the SEAL accelerated learning program for high school next year and having his teacher of the past 2 years plus the assistant principal and his wife (the office lady) give me their phone numbers so they can keep in touch with him. He has also played in a baseball rep squad and has made the cricket rep squad despite so much adversity with DHS, court, and me being away from home for 4 months of this year so far. He really is incredible.

    So what achievements have your children made that you are.super proud of?

    I would also be super proud of your son's achievements. wow. I am super proud of my daughter. She has completed her final uni study course with great results, and she has had a huge health scare that really impacted her life. From may to November, she has been unable to drive, and as she is the carer for her husband, and she has three sons to care for, it really has been a massive struggle. She also has everyday health issues, this incident was on top of all the rest. she amazes me. marie.

    @pointless1, your son really is amazing. I can understand completely why you are so proud of him! @SuperGranny, Marie, your daughter sounds like one tough cookie! She's doing brilliantly!

    I'm proud of 2 year old DS for a few things over the past few days.
    - We had friends over, and DS is pretty particular with some of his toys, doesn't usually let other people play with them. After one gentle reminder he handed over one of his favoured toys to his friend to play with, and smiled while doing it.
    - He's been really quiet at day care since he started in May, not at all like him. Yesterday I was told he was talking and laughing and joining in more often, he's also been engaging in new sensory experiences, which normally he refuses to do.
    - We had a bad morning the other day and I was having a bit of a cry on the lounge, and DS said "oh no," and brought me a favourite toy, and gave me pats on the arm while smiling at me and quietly talking to me. I don't know what he was saying, but it was very sweet.
    - His sleep and attitude at bed time had significantly deteriorated, but the last few nights he's gone to bed without a tantrum - even if it has taken 1.5 hours to get him to fall asleep!
