What was the last thing your child/children did to make you proud?

This is more of a bragging question but I don't care, we can all brag and be proud of others children! Be it little or a big achievement!

My 4 year old tried to open the door today for a lady on the street on the way back home from my mom's, I was just so darn proud of him. (it was too heavy for him...)

What about you guys?

  • My dd is three.
    Recently when she can't reach something (light switch, toy on a shelf) she just goes and gets her little chair. "I can do it myself, mummy."
    She has also gotten pretty good with pouring orange juice into her cup without spilling anything.
    And the other day I was so out of it when I came home from work, that I layed down on the couch and closed my eyes for a bit (checked with my hubby first in case I really fall asleep) when all of a sudden she put something on my chest and said: "I made a bracelet for you, mom." She had sat down with her set of threads and colored pearls and made a little bracelet for me. She had never done that before, because she found it too difficult because of the tiny holes. I was so proud! It's way too small for my wrist, but I tied it to my purse I take to work everyday. And when I look at it, it makes me smile.

  • How nice of him!!
    My oldest saw me balled up in bed (my stomach has been killing me) and he asked me if i'd like a cup of tea. I was like awwwwww.
    He said, " I can make your favorite, but I have to use the microwave mommy because you said we're not allowed to touch the stove."

    I didn't let him make it but it was still such a sweet gesture.
