Thread to boast about your children.

Because they are fabulous, and I love hearing about the things they do that make you fill up with pride.

My daughter has huge speech problems, she was born with a severe cleft lip and palate. This morning she sang the whole of a song ALL the way through, I was very proud. Also my other one tried to pretend she was ill for the first time to get the day off school. It didn't work.

Yay for whole song singing, and for advanced skiving skills.



My eldest has received a 1 for the talking part of her English exam, which for reasons beyond my ken is worth 1/3 of the overall grade.

Given how much she detests public speaking exercises and how nervous she was about it, and for managing to insert the phrase "our new bumfaced overlords" I'm am bursting with pride.

I may have dared her to do that. Naughty person that I am.

Wwv - your post made me very happy for your daughter. How lovely.

SC, I salute your daughter.

D is taking his role as a big brother seriously and when the baby was grumbling the other day he said "She's sad: she needs a toy" and brought her his beloved toy camera and put it on her tummy. He's a very kind boy.

Awwww, what a lovely big brother.

<remembers the days when her own eldest was a loving sister rather than a grumpy teenager prone to winding up her sibling for shit and giggles>

My daughter told her 1st joke today at 28 months.

Knock knock

Doctor

Doctor who?

Doctor moooo.

L sat on an ordinary chair at a table in a cafe to eat her lunch today. I didn't even have a scarf to tie her to the chair with She was very pleased with herself for being so grown-up.

Mud has discovered the concept of peek-a-boo. The day before yesterday he started pulling any nearby cloth over his head, waiting til I say "where has Mud gone?' and then whipping it off dramatically with a big grin on his face, repeat, repeat, repeat.

He looks so pleased with himself.

I don't know if this should be here or on Nutters but this is my daughter known as "She-Who-Has-No-Fear"....

Wow, Beezer!

And urban, that is so lovely. Makes me feel quite nostalgic.

urbanbumpkin - 19 Mar 2011 10:55:39 (#15 of 5331)

Brilliant jumping Beezer!

It is lovely, luc. He enjoys it so much!

brouhahaha - 19 Mar 2011 16:58:03 (#16 of 5331)

Your girl would get on with mine, beezer, who is also a fan of furniture gymnastics.

BeezerB - 19 Mar 2011 17:17:46 (#17 of 5331)

Yeah i often think how 'lucky' i am to still have our old sofa - bought for a tenner in local junk shop about 15 years ago, dates from about the 50's, hideous green nylon and probably incredibly flammable and bad for us in all sorts of ways! I don't know how but despite the extreme jumping abuse it has received in the last couple of years its springs have remained intact and comfy!

mlamle - 22 Mar 2011 12:14:59 (#18 of 5331)

ace jumping skills Beezer, and you have, I think, the same rug as us - Ikea?

BeezerB - 22 Mar 2011 17:42:51 (#19 of 5331)

Yep! Ours is filthy though, coal dust, wine stains, child accidents, dog hair and god knows what else have rather dimmed its loveliness over the years, despite the odd carpet cleaning extravaganza.

My daughter finally heard from UCL after her interview which seems months ago and she will be doing her masters there. So proud of her (and her work are funding it)
