My Children Are My Pride And Joy (Small Talk Six)

Saturday, June 6, 2009

Come join in the fun each Saturday for Mom Dot's Small Talk Six; where participants are asked to list six sentences, six photos, or six paragraphs on a specified subject.

From the Mom Dot website: "All you need to do is...make a short (or an elaborate) post on your blog in response to the assigned topic of the week...When your post is live, come leave your direct link on Mr. Linky and then go see how the other participants responded on their blogs."

This week's topic is 6 things about your children that you are proud of:

  1. I am so very proud of my 17-year-old son for his status as an upcoming high school senior with excellent grades, a strong history of community service and participation in various clubs, and a stellar reputation as a well-mannered young man.

  2. I could not be prouder of my 13-year-old son for his dedication to improving his grades. (We've struggled for years with ADD, so this is a HUGE accomplishment!)

  3. I am so proud that my 4-year old son can recite his ABCs, count to twenty, knows his colors, can actually read several small words, and can tell you the name of all the construction machinery he sees (i.e. backhoe, trachoe, road grader).

  4. I am really proud of my 4-month-old daughter who easily rolls from front to back, back to front like an adorable rolly polly bug.

  5. I always swell with pride when I see my boys hold open doors for women or the elderly (without prompts from me - and as much as the little man can), respond politely to elders with "ma'am" or "sir," and seem to enjoying help others.

  6. Lastly, I am proud that my two oldest boys have overcome hardships in their life and not made it an excuse to become involved in drugs, associating with the wrong people, or other issues dreaded (and sometimes unfortunately experienced) by most parents.

As you can see, I could rattle on about my kiddos all day. Every day I say a prayer thanking God for the wonderful children with which he has blessed me.
