  • I had to leave the computer for a sec...and didn't finish bragging : )

    My oldest son, a Senior, made the Varsity soccer team last week. He had major nerve damage in his right foot. After many cast's and being in a wheelchair on and off for 4 years he had a nerve resection (taking out 2 inches of the nerve in his ankle) to kill the nerve. He was recently cleared by the Neurologist to play soccer again. He's so happy to be back on the soccer field...

  • My 4 year old will be done with OT at the end of this school year!!! He was tested and found to have a severe fine motor skill delay, SPD and proprioceptive issues when he had just turned 3. (he couldn't hold one finger up by itself, or even two...sensory issues, don't get me started!...and he didn't realize he was falling until he hit his face on the floor) After two years of OT twice a week, 1/2 hour each session during the school year only, he has caught up to his peers!!!

    My 3 year old pooped in the potty today BEFORE pooping in his pants!!!

    My 2 year old...well, he's giving his brothers as good as he gets! Sticking up for himself! lol

  • My son is 6 years old and in the first grade. Out of 180 first graders he is the only one who has not been disciplined or got in to any trouble this year. He is also the top reader in his grade. He is reading at a 5-6th grade level. He came home with two awards before Winter Break for his behavior and reading. He got a Math Award in November. I am so proud of his accomplishments.

    At such a young age he has learned so much. I am most proud that he took the 50 bucks he saved and bought gifts for the Angel tree at church. He was saving for a Lego set he wanted. So on Christmas morning he had that set Santa brought it because he was so generous and thought of others. I have a wonderful kid.

  • Wow, excellent question. Sometimes I get so caught up in the day to day activities and discipline of my son, that I never get a chance to brag. I've noticed an overall change in his school work and attitude and am very proud of him. Since the beginning of the school year he has increased his reading level from a low second grade level to a high third grade. I'm just crossing my fingers that he keeps up the good work.
