Yesterday I told my 3 year old I was very proud of her for behaving in the store. We just started teaching her to walk in the store by holding onto the cart so she doesn't have to be in a stroller or sitting in the cart anymore. She did great.

I'm so proud of him for working hard to be a good listener. He has his bad days, but he's still the most amazing kid I've ever meant. I realize I'm a bit biased, but I'm so happy he was given to me. He's the greatest blessing in my life and is worth any sacrifice I have to make.

I let my sons spend the night Saturday night with one of their friends and when they got home Sunday they went straight in their room and cleaned it without being told to. they even helped me cook super. My kids are great. 

My son Alex (8) even took a bath without me having to scream at him. And this morning he got up and got dressed and still had plenty of time to waste before having to walk to the bus stop. He got his clothes ready the night before so he wouldn't have to find anything this morning but socks. 

I am proud of Andre (11) because he helps me out a lot, from house work, to yard work (he loves cutting the grass), to helping me cook. He sent me a good morning/I love you text this morning while walking to the bus stop.

Yes, I tell my boys every day that I love them and that I am proud of them.

 I'm so proud of my children!! Where do I start??

My DD came and told me last night that she is going to play with someone elseat school and that she decided that she won't let that "mean"friend tell her what to do anymore.  She loves to help me out and she's growing up to be such a sweet girl.  She is starting to speak her mind...which I love.  lol

My DS is such a big helper.  I know he has a hard time focusing on things, but he is so smart.  He is so polite and generous.  He loves to make people smile.  He has such a big heart.  He's growing up to be such a nice boy. 

My baby girl is crawling and trying to stand up.  She's getting so big and she is such a silly and sweet baby.  I'm a proud mama.

 I'm so proud of my kids several time throughout the day.   Now that they are on spring break we get to spend more time together too

 I did this Friday when my son (1st grade) came home with 2 1/2 weeks worth of happy faces on his behavior report in a row!!  I was BEAMING for him!

I will tell them how proud I was of their behavior last night at the aquarium today when they get home from the boys & girls club!
