I just feel like telling that dd age 7 in the last week passed her first (external) piano exam and also passed a swimming assessment to get put up a group at her swimming club (she had to do butterfly, backstroke, front crawl and backstroke perfectly).

Can I join your boasting thread? DS1 won a penalty shoot out competition at school. He's in Year 7 and it was for Years 7 through 9. The school are buying him the footie shirt of his choice. Also, he got 90%, 93% and 100% in his french tests. proud mother!!!!!!!!!

BTW well done to your DD

Fantastic MSBL! Well done to your DS! He'll be playing in the Premiership before you know it

MarsselectionboxLady Fri 17-Dec-04 19:25:57

He'd better be. Really dreaming of an expense account

Hulababy Fri 17-Dec-04 19:28:12

Well done to your DD

Hulababy Fri 17-Dec-04 19:28:35

Oh and MSBL - well done to your DS too

JanH Fri 17-Dec-04 19:51:17

Please can I join in? DS1 (16), who has been in trouble for talking too much (among other things) since he started in Reception, was Mystery Shopped in his checkout at Sainsburys and got 97% for being chatty, pleasant and helpful! He has finally grown into his mouth!

xmashampermunker Fri 17-Dec-04 19:53:04

Hooray JanH! I was the same through school - lots of very/far too chattys on my school reports! DS is looking like he'll be the same - lots of sounds from very early (said mama at 24 weeks - bless him!).

JanH Fri 17-Dec-04 19:53:29

And, sorry, well done to Cam's DD and Marslady's DS too!

roisin Fri 17-Dec-04 19:58:15

Oh great thread! Well done RC's dd - butterfly at 7, that's amazing!

Congrats to Marslady's ds!

And of course well done to Janh's fab ds1. I often find teenagers on checkouts unpleasant and unhelpful - so you've got a real gem there! (Maybe it's because they don't do supermarket shopping so don't understand the issues involved. Does he do your grocery shopping for you too?!)

JanH Fri 17-Dec-04 20:14:13

Thank you, roisin!

No, he doesn't do shopping for me (though occasionally comes with me), but both of his sisters and I have worked on checkout already so he has a good idea of what's involved, and he just loves talking to people - perfect checkout material!

TinselTamum Fri 17-Dec-04 20:29:06

Well done everyone!

JanH's son is indeed a real gem. When I worry about having teenagers i think how nice he is and it cheers me up

moondog Fri 17-Dec-04 20:31:23

Well done Baby Rudolph!!

tigermoth Sat 18-Dec-04 07:45:47

well done boys and girls.

Janh love the phrase 'he has finally grown into his mouth'.

I usually approach the checkout highly stressed if I am with my sons, so some calming and friendly talk from the checkout person is really appreciated.

Cor, thanks for the messages here. Well done to the other boys and girls for making their mums proud as well!
Yorkiegirl it was the prep test and the examiner wrote that dd is completely ready for Grade 1.

Starofbethlibbhem Sun 19-Dec-04 12:34:44

I think a proud as punch thread is a great idea! I want to hear loads more. (DS is only 7 months so every little new thing leaves me proud)

I think it is high time we all blew our trumpets about our little ones! we spend so much time dealing with the worrying/guilt ridden stuff and not enough time praising our little ones - or ourselves . . .

MarsselectionboxLady Sun 19-Dec-04 12:46:00

Ok, more to add (remember I have 5 so could be on this thread a very long time.

DT2 can stand unsupported in the middle of the room and clap.
DT1 can walk around the room if pushing a stool or something
DS1 came home from school with a good note in his homework diary and 11 merits
DD1 tidied her room without being asked and helped DD2 to make Christmas decorations (believe me that's a miracle)
DD2 was fab in her nativity play and went to bed without complaint 4 nights in a row (hallelujah). She also got a certificate and badge for swimming 10m.

Well done, it's lovely to hear all these stories! JanH, I could have told you for free that your ds is a lovely young man! Well done - 97%!

Ds just did a wee in a potty and sat quietly listening to the story in church without me. Sounds like nothing compared to everyone elses' achievements, but I'm proud!

MarsselectionboxLady Sun 19-Dec-04 13:34:02

and so you should be!!!!!!!!!!!!

Batters Mon 20-Dec-04 09:32:34

Ooh cam well done to your dd!
