My DD is almost 2, and I'm not going to sugarcoat or downplay it, she is very smart. Don't get me wrong, she is a 2 year old, and she has her bad days, and we have worked really, really hard to help her learn and accomplish all that she has. The problem is, I find myself telling people about how great she is, she has done this, or she has done that. I am just so proud of her, but I can feel others getting annoyed with me. When I stop and THINK about it, I can refrain from spilling my guts about my amazing kid, but it is hard to keep that in mind all the time..
Anyone else have this problem and/or know how I can take it down a notch or two?

I save bragging about my kids for conversations with my DH, Mom, or MIL. They appreciate the awesomeness of my kids and don't feel threatened by having less accomplished children.
