Nothing makes you gush like seeing your kids succeed! What have your kids done to make you proud recently, or a long time ago, or ever?

Great Question....of course. Tons of things really. Besides helping around the house which includes cooking dinner at times, I would say the physics scholarship my oldest daughter got and the art scholarship scholarship my youngest was awarded with. Of course, many more but those are the most recent!
My 2 year old wanted to help mommy mop the floor. He was so cute, melt my heart

My 15 month old has been running up to his big sister and giving her huge hugs. And his big sister has been so lovely to him - she'll come and tell me "The dude was crying mummy, so I gave him a big cuddle and now he is happy again"...so sweet. (Never mind that he was probably crying because she pushed him over...lol)
My surviving child does not have to do anything to make me proud of him!

He turned into a lovely man, and I do not care if he succeeds or not -he has my unconditional love regardless.

I am not the "gushing" type anyway.

The painting of the dogs is by my teenager! She taught herself to paint watercolour and has opened a successful page on Facebook where she sells a lot of her art.

Yesterday my unschooled 8yr old just started reading out of the blue. I had no idea he could read, but he read a whole book!
Love it . . . !!!!!!!

2 of my sons became Locksmiths and have a Company for many years now.

My youngest is studying, and has done well to finish at the end of this year.
They all have worked hard, and that makes me very proud.
Our younger son did a 100mile sponsored cycle in memory of his older brother who'd died 3 years ago. We were very proud. A gruelling cycle with baggage attached. (Not done to make us proud,we are anyway. Still...)
Both are professionals', after many years' of hard study.

Both were essentially good kids' at home & school. My son was 3rd in the State at Chess. He also in Tennis & Cadets at school. Did exceptionally well at both!
Am very proud of them!
Grew up to be a teacher, got a Master's Degree, fabulous cook, does wonderful crafts, loves animals - is just a credit to the 17 yr old I was when I had her.

I am very proud of my son. He has achieved two degrees - Bachelor of Applied Science majoring in Geology, and worked as a geologist for some years. He then decided to change career paths and obtained a Bachelor of Nursing Science degree. He now works as an ICU Nurse in a major Brisbane hospital. I think I am most proud though of the man he has turned out to be - he is kind, thoughtful, caring and very loving. When my husband died almost three years ago it was absolutely devastating for us and Steven was an absolute rock for me at that terrible time, even though he was suffering too.
