Default Official "brag on your kids" thread

Doesn't need to be stuff that is designed to impress other people. Just stuff that you're proud of. You know you've been suppressing it since you know nobody without kids wants to hear it, but now you have a place to put it.

My 4-year old read nearly all of Dick and Jane (book 1) last night "on his own". Had to help him with a few things, and sure, he has a good chunk of it memorized so a lot of it isn't really "reading" so much as remembering words. But still, makes me proud when he asks to read that because "I really want to learn how to read" and watching him struggle through some of it but still stick with it makes me happy.

My 6-year old didn't give in to peer pressure from her best friend at school and therefore did not get a note sent home for chewing gum. Very proud of her for that.

Where to start!?!?!

My 3rd grader was getting pressure from one of her friends to shun another little girl from playing with them on the playground. Mine said, "Mom, I just couldn't do that! I said we had to be nice and let her play too!"
