Proud

Dollop...
Dollop has her full leg cast on now. It was plastered on Monday. Tuesday she started crawling around and bum-shuffling. Today (Wednesday) she has been walking with help, then without. Her independence astounds me, her determination amazes me, Dollop makes me a very proud mum.

And today, she went to nursery for an hour for the first time. I was with her the whole time, and played with her, read stories to her and carried her around the room. She loved it, she wanted to stay, she would have been happy for me to leave her there on her own. Dollop's not been to playgroup or pre-school, but again her independent streak shone through. Dollop made me a very proud mum.

Mini...
Today was Mini's sports day. In this unrelenting heat, Mini took part in an obstacle course, a foam javelin throw and a sprint. He came 2nd in the obstacle course and 3rd in the javelin throw. He was so pleased with himself. He gets a 10/10 from me for effort. Mini makes me a very proud mum.

It was report day today. Mini's report couldn't have been any better at all. All the remarks are about the progress he's made at school - his confidence is gaining, his reading is top notch - everything is top notch! In parts Mini sounds like a completely different child, but then we know he's different at school. But yet again, Mini's made me a very proud mum.

Today, my kids have both made me really really proud, and despite all their trial and tribulations, they've both managed exceptionally well today. Aren't they clever?!

  1. Lovely, your post today has me with tears threatening to spill over because the same is happening here with my two. I love it that the progress is highlighted on reports ... they can do what they need to do at home but if they can function at school, or at least be taking steps to be able to learn then this is amazing and makes us all so, so proud. These kids are amazing. : )

    1. :-) I hadn't really thought about it like that...sometimes I get so infuriated that what goes on at school affects our whole family life at home, but you're right - he's functioning well there, and learning which is exactly what he should be doing. x
